Why do I feel abandoned, Oh Lord
Why is it that I cry in my sleep
Why doesn’t my life move forward, Oh Lord
Why is it that I only have sad memories to keep

Why do my eyes only see darkness, Oh Lord
Why is my heart bruised and soul bloodied
Why does the world turn away at my sight, Oh Lord
Why behind this hard exterior is lying a whimpering child

Why won’t a mother sing a lullaby to me, Oh Lord
Why is there only the stench of powder in my world
Why would you keep me alive, Oh Lord
Why can’t you lay me to rest inside an endless void.
