The Way Home

Lying still, head awake, eyes closed tight and thoughts ablaze,
It’s coursing like a river going through my mind, taking hits from the hands of time.

Silence can be so odd, it’s like looking around for the eyes of God,
There’s a truth somewhere that I just can’t find, taking hits from the hands of time.

And I wonder if you were here right now, would you sit with me beneath this darkened shroud?
In this prison built from bricks of shame, I want to tear it down to the frame.

If you smash your life up against the wall, you want to break it like a bottle and just let go,
But I don’t know if there’s a God at all, I just know I can’t live like this no more,
I just know I can’t live like this no more.

And the hours go by endlessly, and the days were spent breathlessly,
and the nights begging for some sleep
Oh the endless time alone.
And the faces of the boys in line, there was fear in their eyes, and they all,
We just want to find a way home

I can hear the birds, see the light outside, stand up like a man and swallow my pride,
I can write these words down in a rhyme. They’ve been beaten from me by the hands of time.

I don’t know why it’s always this way, and I hang my head low in the light of day,
All I know is I’m tired of being afraid, I got to walk this road on these bricks I’ve laid.

All the trumpets and the marching bands, the thunder claps and trembling hands,
all the people stood up in the stands, and I just felt so alone,
‘Cause the halos looked like rusted chains in the light
As we screamed in the dark, I just wanted to find a way home

The truth is I’m not brave or sure, I just know I can’t live like this no more,
I don’t know what I’ve been waiting for, I just know I can’t live like this no more.

The truth is I’m not brave or sure, I just know I can’t live like this no more,
I don’t know what I’ve been waiting for, I just know I can’t live like this no more.

And I don’t know if this road will end at your door, I just know I can’t live like this no more,
I don’t even know what I’m heading for, I just know I can’t live like this no more.
I just know I can’t live like this no more
