And it blew up in my face just like a bomb, I can’t stay calm I miss my dad I miss my mom, I miss my 45’s and all my friends are gone, I can’t go visiting the streets I grew up on. And it still doesn’t feel like home and I’m all alone, all alone. Now I’m sittin alone no way home and it’s a two day drive from here, no gas in my car I won’t get far, no one to wipe my tears. And I knew it from the start, this was gonna be very hard, but I know and I will always know, this is exactly where I wanted to go. So now I’m rebuilding my home, stone by stone by stone.

    General CommentOriginally written for Pencey Prep and intended to be included on their second album should they have lasted that long. Rebuilding Home was written for Sabatino's then girlfriend. It was from her point of view and the trials and tribulations of moving from rural Fairmont, Minnesota to Clifton, New Jersey. This song as well as appearing on Fairmont's debut album was also re-recorded with flutes and piano and released on The Subtle Art Of Making Enemies EP.
