"Why" as written by Calvin Gaines, Winston Jones and Roland Clark/ Paul Simpson....
Why would you want to
Hurt or kill or maim
To take a dream or life away
And why would you hear the calling
In your Napoleonic mind
To hurt so many people that way
Why would you want to pull the trigger
Of a black shaft of steel
Where have you lost the ability to feel
And why would you want to put a stop
To something moving so strong
Didn't your mother teach you right from wrong
Why
How could you think it over
And still you follow through
Is there no one in this world who loves you
And what would inspire such violence
I haven't got a clue
What a truly wasteful thing to do
What makes a person like you tick
Are there voices in your head
Why would you want to see another dead
And I'm not one for choosing sides
Because I've always been alone
But I heard the news today across the telephone
They a said a boy from a band
With a good looking future had it taken away
And all that you've left me to say is
Why
