"Why'd We Come" as written by and Danny Elfman....
Intro
Everyone says we've come such a long, long way
We're civilized, isn't that nice?
We've gotten so smart
We know how to blow the whole world apart
But when it comes to the simple things
(like living together) . . . ha!

Verse
Why'd we have to come all this way
Is anything any easier to understand
Why'd we have to come all this way
Are we any smarter than primitive men
We still fall in love though we know better
Anything at all just to stay together
Stop wasting all my time

Chorus
Why did we come all this way
Why did we come all this way
Why did we come all this way
Why did we come all this way

Verse
Why'd we have to come all this way
We could have quit while we were way ahead
Why'd we have to come all this way
We could have just stayed home instead
The road was long and the journey was hard
We never even dreamed that we'd come so far

Chorus

Bridge
It didn't have to end up like this
It didn't have to end up like this
It didn't have to end up like this
It didn't have to end up like this

    My InterpretationI'm pretty sure it's about how us humans think we have evolved; we're "advanced" and "civilized". Yet the biggest thing we've accomplished as a race, is the ability to destroy our own planet.
    Danny thinks that we should've just stayed as primitive men while we had the chance, instead of going on this long, destructive journey to "evolving".
