"Why'd We Come" as written by and Danny Elfman....
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 tear the whole world apart
But when it comes to the simple things
Like living together?
HA!

Why'd we have to come all this way?
Is anything easier to understand?
Why'd we have to come all this way?
Are we at the start of the brink of man?

We shouldn't fall in love for we know better
Anything that moves can stay together
STOP! Wasting all my time

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?

Why'd we have to come all this way?
We could have quit while we were way ahead
Why'd it have to end up like this?
We should have just stayed at home instead

The road was long and the journey was hard
We'd never even dreamed that we'd come so far
STOP! Wasting all my time

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?

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
It didn't have to end up like this

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?

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

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?

    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".
