"WHY?"

Verse 1
Killing brings on more of the same,
Retaliation for retaliation.
Who's in charge here?
I wanna let you know my frustration.

Chorus 1
"Why?" Why do ya leave me with that question?
World, why do you leave me asking "Why?"
What's with this violence to humanity?
Why are you carrying on this insanity?

Verse 2
Where's the sense in taking a life,
Be it with a bomb or a knife?
Tell me who said you're to say
Who's to live and who's to pay?

Repeat Chorus 1

Verse 3
Stop, and give it some thought
Before you inflict pain.
Turn the table; what would you do
If your victim thought of you the same?

Spoken
Whatever happened to love? Was it put to death by your hate?
Call on the God of love before you find your fate.

Repeat Chorus 1

Chorus 2
"Why?" No, don't leave me with that question.
World, don't leave me asking "Why?"
Stop this violence to humanity,
Put an end to this insanity.
