Explain

by

Shannon Billings

I donít understand this world
And I donít understand this life
Iíll swallow my pain if it made sense
Iíd jump over the bridge
And climb over the fence
If only I understood why
If only the world would change
If only Iíd stop living this lie

The closets are empty
And the people are numb
The darkness is falling
The evil has come

I donít understand
Why the storyís so old
Or why their hearts
Are so cold

But I do understand
That I will never understand
Itís like flying in the sky
And missing wheels to land
Let the world go on
No one understands

Lost in our confusion
Weíve become so numb
The darkness is here
The evil has come
