• What is a martyr without a cause
    and what is a contract without a clause
    What is a soldier without a gun
    and what is a coward who doesn't run

    What is a wish made without hope
    and what is the noose made without rope
    What is a shape without a mold
    and what is aging if you don't grow old

    What is walking without feet
    and what is a heart without a beat
    What is a name without a face
    and who is the winner without a race

    What is a lover who's all alone
    and what is a seed that hasn't grown
    What is life without death
    and what are lungs without breath

    Who am I when I'm not there
    and what is the place without the chair
    Why do we bother if we'll yet die
    and why do we ever ever ask why
