Wonder

Been a huge fan of The Classic Crime for years, and their new album reveals their true artistry and ability to write amazing lyrics. Wonder on the album has stirred controversy, having the “F” word in it. Many have said it’s not necessary and it shows their conformity to the world.

I don’t think this is necessarily true, in fact, I think the word is necessary for this song. It shows the emotion and the strong feeling that doubt brings to mankind. When I first listened to the song it reminded me of my periods of doubt, my many moments of just wondering why I lost my interest in God. Where’s the “fire” that everyone talks about? How come I’m not the same as I was a year ago? Why does everyone have this love for Jesus and this longing to study when I don’t?  I think this song is perfect just the way it is. Below are the lyrics and audio for the song.

[Verse 1]
Wonder what I’ve got
Under doubt more than not
Wonder why I can’t
Amend my constitution
Wonder who I am
Becoming a bad person
Wonder if I can
Find a good solution, oh

[Pre-Chorus]
Have I fucked up my head
With all the books that I read
Was I too hungry for the truth to find you

[Chorus 1]
Wonder why I’ve lost my wonder
Why the ship is going under
Wonder why I’ve lost all my wonder
Why the night has got my number
Wonder why the wonder died in me

[Verse 3]
Wonder what comes next
Opposite of annexed
Wonder if I’ll stay
Pretend everything’s okay

Oh I can’t
‘Cause I’m not the same
Are we just beggars
All hanging on for a little piece of bread
That’s not coming around
And it’s been too long
Since I have tasted wine
Not spoiled by the ghosts inside my head

[Chorus 2]
And I’ve seen good people die
While I’ve been barely alive
And I can’t live another minute
If I’m in it just to live a lie

[Chorus 1]
Wonder why I’ve lost my wonder
Why the ship is going under
Wonder why I’ve lost all my wonder
Why the night has got my number
Wonder why the wonder died in me

[Bridge]
All I can say is something inside me has suddenly changed
But I’ll take the blame
Since I was raised to embrace my shame

[Chorus 2]
And I’ve seen good people die
While I’ve been barely alive
And I can’t live another minute
If I’m in it just to live a lie

And I’ve seen good people die
While I’ve been barely alive
And I can’t live another minute
If I’m in it just to live a lie

[Chorus 1]
Wonder why I’ve lost my wonder
Why the ship is going under
Wonder why I’ve lost all my wonder
Why the night has got my number
Wonder why the wonder died in me
Wonder why the wonder died in me
