A Song About Not Being Able To Understand

Why does our earth exist? Why does the moon orbit around it?
Why does it revolve around the sun?
Why is man lucky enough to live on this earth?
Is it an accident or has it been planned?
Why do we feel inner peace when we see children sleeping?
Why is a day at the sea so comfortingly beautiful?
Why does music often move us to tears?
I would love to understand all that.
So much I can't quite explain
All that I would like to understand
Why do some people think, that there's no pandemic
and that they live in a dictatorship here?
Why do they believe in every conspiracy theory?
and do think they are on the track of something big?
Why do they think that the state's a tyrannical system?
when it's them who take away the freedom of others?
How can they think of themselves as victims,
while they go on the streets with Nazis?
How much they serve the right-wingers with this,
these puppets can't see.
Why does a conscienceless ruler lie his way into power,
who is only interested in his own ego?
Who dazzles his people with propaganda, monitors everyone
and punishes everyone who protests against it?
Who a neighboring country that simply wants to live in peace,
...tries to take it by force overnight...
And threatens us with nuclear weapons,
if we dare stand by its victims?
How does one live with such an offense?
I can't for the life of me understand it.
Why is there this and that? How can some of those things happen?
Why is so much weird and whimsical?
Such questions can be asked and debated.
But the world keeps the answers to itself.
Not everything can be answered with reason and consideration.
Some things have to be accepted with powerlessness,
To accept it or to rebel against it with all one's might.
We're the smallest particles in the system,
and are, no matter how hard we try,
Not made to understand it all.

Corrected the typing error, and the title. I felt like I translated the title a little wrong.
