[instrumental picking part]
[picking part, verse]
The day is long. It doesn't seem to ever end.
Where are my friends? Why am I so alone?
[instrumental verse parts, the picking emphasizes "so alone"]
Well, I don't need them. I'll get by.
I must be here for some reason,
guess I'll find out when I die.
I wonder at the plunder of my soul.
I don't want for nothing: shelter, food or clothes.
Everything's provided, but I'm still undecided.
Every question is at least two-sided.
The questioner is not separate, you see.
it's all a mystery.
