The following post is collected from one of the messages from Dr. Ravi Zacharias (RZIM)., which he collected from one of the songs played on

"Choice of the Youth" Songs relay programme
from Ceylon (now called as Sri Lanka) Radio Station.


It is also found in one of his books:

Can Man Live without God“ on pages 4 and 5.

Who will answer..?


From the canyons of the mind,

We wander on and stumble blind
Through the often-tangled maze

Of starless nights and sunless days,
While asking for some kind of clue Or

road to lead us to the TRUTH,
But who will answer?

Side by side two people stand,

Together vowing, hand-in-hand
That love's imbedded in their hearts,

But soon an empty feeling starts
To overwhelm their hollow lives,

And when they seek the hows and whys,
Who will answer?


On a strange and distant hill,

A young man's lying very still.
His arms will never hold his child,

Because a bullet running wild
Has struck him down. And now we cry,

"Dear God, Oh, why, oh, why?"
But who will answer?


High upon a lonely ledge,

A figure teeters near the edge,
And jeering crowds collect below,

To egg him on with, "Go, man, go!"
But who will ask what led him,

To his private day of doom,
And who will answer?

Cat’s foot iron claw, Neurosurgeons scream for more
From paranoia’s poison door, Twenty First century schizoid man.
The wall on which the prophets wrote, Is cracking at the seams.
Upon the instruments of death, The sunlight brightly gleams


When every man is torn apart, With nightmares and with dreams,
Will no one lay the laurel wreath, As silence drowns the screams.
Between the iron gates of fate, The seeds of time were sown,
And watered by the deeds of those, Who know and how are known;


by King Crimson group...

Ed Ames...

When no-one answers... we call upon god

When no-god answers... please call upon


He will answer, because he has to answer..!


Try Once,
you loose nothing...!!

Lyric Source: Who will Answer?

YouTube Song Link: Who Will Answer?


If the soul is darkened,

By a fear it cannot name,
If the mind is baffled,

When the rules don't fit the game,
Who will answer? Who will answer? Who will answer?

In the rooms of dark and shades,

The scent of sandalwood pervades.
The colored thoughts in muddled heads, Reclining in the rumpled beds
Of unmade dreams that can't come true,

And when we ask what we should do,
Who... Who will answer?


'Neath the spreading mushroom tree,

The world revolves in apathy
As overhead, a row of specks,

Roars on, drowned out by discotheques,
And if a secret button's pressed,

Because one man has been outguessed,
Who will answer?


Is our hope in walnut shells,

Worn 'round the neck with temple bells,
Or deep within some cloistered walls,

Where hooded figures pray in halls?
Or crumbled books on dusty shelves,

Or in our stars, or in ourselves,
Who will answer?


If the soul is darkened
By a fear it cannot name, If the mind is baffled
When the rules don't fit the game, 

Who will answer? Who will answer? Who will answer?

Knowledge is a deadly friend,

When no one sets the rules.
The fate of all mankind, I see, Is in the hand of fools
