Why is the sky blue? Why is water wet?
Why did Judas rat to Romans while Jesus slept?

from GZA (Ft. Ghostface Killah, Killah Priest & RZA) – 4th Chamber Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Ghostface is pondering the mysteries of the universe. Not that the first two are all that mysterious — we know the sky is blue because the atmosphere scatters sunlight, water is wet because hydrogen gas and oxygen gas form covalent bonds to create a liquid. Maybe Judas ratted out Jesus because a) he was possessed by Satan, b) he was looking for his thirty pieces of silver, or c) Mel Gibson told Judas to do it.
