Look in your hand
What lies in there?
Can you see a desert
burning with despair?
Now, do you see a spec
right there in the middle?
Yeh? Well that is a camel
- Life stuck in a riddle

Life stuck in a riddle
yeh, stuck in a riddle
The camel in the desert
right there in the middle

Look again in your hand
What lies in there?
Can you see a valley
families everywhere?
Now, do you see the chamber
slap dab in the middle?
Yeh? A nuclear bomb shed
- Life stuck in a riddle

Life stuck in a riddle
yeh, stuck in a riddle
The bombs in the valley
right there in the middle

So look again in your hand
tell me what lies there?
Can you see a church
heads bent in prayer?
Do you see the cross
burning in the middle?
Yeh? It’s unseen in church
- Life stuck in a riddle
Life stuck in a riddle
yeh, stuck in a riddle
The fire in the church
right there in the middle

Look once more at your hand
What lies in there?
Can you see a mountain
piercing thin air?
And do you see a climber
lying in the middle?
Yeh? He’s dead at the summit
- Life stuck in a riddle

Life stuck in a riddle
yeh, stuck in a riddle
Dead at the summit
right there in the middle

What you see are past times
Our forebears roamed here
Those in balanced comfort
lived unbalanced in fear

Yes, watchdogs yelled help
Some whispered at the brink
But the selfish did nothing
refused to care, even think

So what! Good becomes bad
Another place didn’t make it
That's Life stuck in a riddle
let the love of greed take it

One last time in your hand
what lies in there?
Can you see a universe
not ours, one to share?
Now do you see that spec
right there in the middle?
Yeh? Well that’s our planet
- and it's stuck in a riddle
Hey diddle diddle
it’s Life in a riddle
And we’re on a planet
stuck right in the middle

So where is the middle
and what is the riddle?
A cow and a moon
a cat and a fiddle A dish and a spoon
stuck here in a riddle
