Just Won­der­ing

By Potent Whis­per

Verse 1

What would you do if it was your fam­ily?

Your town in raw anarchy?

If it was your house you were forced out of cas­u­ally?

If it was your blood, your son or your mums?

They’re run­ning on your funds, so aren’t these your guns?

How can it be a “war” if only one side declares it?

Pause…

Where are their kids on the front line or air strip?

Yours…

Why do we serve a queen? When did we turn to sheep?

Why do we murder lead­ers when they seek an urgent peace?

What’s viol­ence? How would you define it?

Isn’t it sup­port of a war if we’re silent?

Couldn’t we have fought instead of fall­ing for their rise?

(But they invade in our names and we don’t bat an eye­lid!)

Why do we go to pris­on for protest?

Isn’t it grot­esque? Is this the king­dom you co-rep?

When will the ques­tions end? What’s their reas­on?

How can you reach peace without freedom?

Chor­us

Why? Why sit in silence when their men have guns up?

Oh yes I won­der… Why?

Why sit in silence when their men have guns up?

Oh yes I won­der why…

Verse 2

Am I weak for com­pas­sion? Is peace not an action?

Do sol­diers wan­na shoot or are they used for their pas­sion?

Ummmm…

How many sol­diers really know what their fight­ing for?

(Ask)

Would the reas­ons dif­fer? Are they quite sure?

If Bush wore a cross does it mean the war was gods?

Or is it blas­phemy and actu­ally a con?

Isn’t Nation­al Defence just an actu­al attack?

So many wan­na love, where’s the manu­al for that?

Take a life or serve life? Murder or treas­on?

Wasn’t that the choice for all the boys they were lead­ing?

Do we wan­na war when the ones that went before all marched out to cheers but returned as a secret?

When the next war begins, will it be you who fights it?

And if we do fight, will it be you who decides it?

Are we not a factor? Are you not their num­ber?

Am I just a mad man? Do you nev­er won­der?!

Just Won­der­ing…
