Time is at rest yet the clock walks
I keep going while the world stops
When I want to be alone, my hand is held
And when loneliness bites, the fist remains unweld
Then why do I expect and why did I say
And why the hell does anybody pray.....
I walk in circles which have no bounds
Am I trapped in here or just taking rounds?
Was my act really a good deed?
Or was it another camouflaged greed
Then why do I think and why did I say
And why the hell does anybody pray....
The mango tree is my soul mate
But he understands my cues a bit late
Sitting amidst flowers, I miss the thorns
And value silence when the motor honks
Then why do I compare and why did I say
And why the hell does anybody pray...
Reality is cruel, life is a fiction
Then isn't our existence a big contradiction?
A chemical imbalance or His divine presence
It has taken years but all it takes is an instance
Then why do I believe and why did I say
And why the hell does anybody pray..
The sadder I am, the happier I shall seem
I’ll continue cutting my hand through the laser beam
Faith in others is something unlikely
And even if it develops, it would be mistakenly
Then why do I care and why did I say
And why the hell does anybody pray.
