Bobby Darin – Questions lyrics

How do you kill a mountain
How do you make it fall
Well you chip away
Every day
And soon the clay
Will fade away
And the hole you've dug
In the dream you hug
Will be like a bug
In your ear
Can't you hear.

How do you kill the sunshine
How do you turn it out
Well you close your eyes
To the cries
And the lies
In the law's disguise
And the light will fade
In the evenin' shade
Which is only made
By the sun
Are you dumb.

How do you kill the ocean
How do you make it dry
Well you first dilute
Then pollute
Cut the fruit
At the root
And the ocean's floor
Will be like a whore
Who will lie no more
'cause she's dead
Use your head.

How do you kill the country
How does she disappear
Well you trade your tent
In for rent
That will be spent
On poured cement
And the things that grew
When the earth was new
Which have nurtured you
Will be gone
Blow your horn.

How do you kill an idea?
