"With Or Without Reason" as written by and Michael Been....
How you gonna tell your story
Are you gonna tell it rue
Either with or without reason
Love has paid the price for you

How you gonna cure this feeling
How you gonna right this wrong
Either with or without reason
The weaker do protect the strong

Listen in your hour of pain
Either in or out of season
The hunters still pursue the game

Oh, there's somebody waiting
Oh, there's somebody near
Oh, there's somebody waiting
Oh, there's somebody here

Now lately I've begun to wonder
Just who is talking when you speak
Either with or without reason
The stronger still pursue the weak

The wisest of the fools can tell you
Anything you want to hear
Either with or without reason
These are truths you hold so dear

Oh, there's somebody waiting
Oh, there's somebody near
Oh, there's somebody waiting
Oh, there's somebody here

I dedicate this inner chamber
I dedicate this harvest toil
Either with or without reason
The language of the heart takes hold

Now don't you see that love offends us
When it rises up against this waste
Either with or without reason
Evidence of sin and grace

Oh, there's somebody waiting
Oh, there's somebody near
Oh, there's somebody waiting
Oh, there's somebody here

    General CommentI found this comment about the song, from the songwriter.

    "the song seems to be about the inability of the intellect or
    Reasoning mind to understand certain basic truths about life" -
    Michael Been

    Personally, I have always loved The Call, and songs like this are the reason why.
