The Riddler Lyrics

8. The Riddler (5:16)
Track rating :  98.8 / 100      Votes :  4     
Riddler, Riddler ask me why
The birds fly free on a mackerel sky
Ask me whither goes the winds
Whence the endlesstick-tick stream begins

Make me guess if the Earth is flat or round
Set a guessing if fantasies are unbound
If tale aren't just for children to see
That it's peace is sleep walks with me

As you wish
For kingdom come
The one to know all the answers
You think you dwell in wisdom's sea
Still, sweet ignorance is the key
To a poet's paradise
Challenge the Riddler and you will see

Riddler, Riddler ask me why
All mothers beneath the Earth and sky
Hold theait children's hands for a while
Their hearts forever... yours and mine

Make me wonder what's the meaning of life
What's the use to be born and then die
Make me guess who's the one
Behind the mask of Father and Son

[Repeat chorus]

For nature hates virginity
I wish to be touched
Not by the hands of where's and why's
But by the Ocean's minds

[Repeat chorus]
