"Why" by Supaman

from Supaman's website

Another really popular song by Native American rap artist and Christian Supaman is "Why." The song is multilingual and the lyrics are provocative. English lyrics below:

Why is one man rich and another man poor Why we ain't satisfied, why we gotta have more? Why is suicide rates on the rez so high? Why I tell you the truth, but you say "Don't lie." Why is being a good father at an all time low? Why is it acceptable? Yo, why? I don't know Why she blame him and he blame her? It's useless Ask yourself this question, "Why you making excuses?" Why do parents gotta bury their kids While we text and drive, not caring how scary it is? Why it's so hard to forgive and leave the past behind? And if you did, then that's divine Why don't you help your brother when you see him fall? Why do we act like God don't see it all? Why do we call them Black, them White, them Asians and use labels? Now that's racism

Why is there innocent people locked up for life? Why some people can't say nothing nice? Why do we always gotta question what all of it means And why won't you follow your dreams? Tell me why... the night when you took my dad Why'd you let me see my grandpa cry? And tell me why And why do you choose to hide Even though you was born to fly? And tell me why And why don't we turn from all the hate? And why don't we learn from all mistakes? Why do I keep on wrecking these fat beats? And teachers don't make more than professional athletes
