every good reason

back when i first went across the bridge to turmera
there i met a child who spoke in plain engligh
every word was pronounced with a hissing noise
he was always asking about his future

in the other parts of jordan
they had a respectful way of saying
"you don't know who i am"
but it literally only meant "please"

at one point or another i made it clear all
that i was not about to point the spear at the hole in the ground
if you find me down there it means that my will was true
anyway i'd best be turning to the past for clarity

i leave you with my reason for the situation
it's about time for everybody to answer the question
since it's not been easy for me to smile
my answer has been already given
