Riddler Riddler ask me why 
The birds fly free on a mackerel sky 
Ask me whither goes the wind 
Whence the endless tick-tick stream begins 

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

As you wish 
For kingdom come 
The one to know all the answers 
You think you dwell in wisdoms 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 their 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 

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

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

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