There Has To Be A Reason

such a pretty girl, as she walks into the market
with the people all around her and the air so sweet and soft
such a pretty girl, who would ever guess it
that she’s wired with explosives till the bomb goes off

mother did you know her, did she have a big bright smile
was her heart full of love for the life all ahead of her
and did you know them, were they the children of their parents
and will they be remembered for who they really were

and who would ever do a thing like that
there has to be a reason, there has to be a reason
there has to be a reason for that

ignorance is easy when you look the other way
and when you just don’t listen you can say that you didn’t hear
a little voice callin’, like talkin’ to a brick wall
and the pressure is buildin’ year after year

somebody’s got the power, what are they gonna do with it
are they gonna keep pushin’ down with the great big thumb
anybody might snap when they don’t see a future
another little girl, another little bomb

and who would ever do a thing like that
there has to be a reason, there has to be a reason
there has to be a reason for that

you say you got a symptom, you go to see the doctor
you want to know the reason, ‘cause you want to find a cure
well, we have a sickness, we’re shooting at the symptoms
it’s only gonna get worse, I know that much for sure

and who would ever do a thing like that
there has to be a reason, there has to be a reason
there has to be a reason for that
