“Question” features the ‘To be or not to be’ soliloquy from Hamlet, in which he is tentative over life or death. Hamlet’s tragic flaw is his inability to act. Humans are always conflicted, afraid of not knowing what lies ahead. It is comforting to know that the reason we are indecisive is that we want the best for ourselves.
