"Home Was Good" as written by and Jim Matheos Kevin Moore....
Go on ahead
Your story is just where you left it
Go on ahead
But I still can't believe you can't help it

Ninety-five percent
Happen in the home
Swallowed by the bed
Caught in the phone
Hammering the walls
Sleepwalking falls
Overstepping out
Haunting the halls

Go on ahead
Go on ahead

    My InterpretationI always thought the song was about accidental deaths! maybe I am way off the mark here, but it's my interpretation.
    Swallowed by the Bed - Suffocation?
    Caught in the Phone - tripping on the Lead?
    Hammering the Walls - into Electrics maybe?
    Sleepwalking Falls - as it says?
    Overstepping Out - walking out the house, sleep walking?
    Haunting the Halls - visiting back after the unfortunate accident!

    What do you think on this interpretation???

    General CommentI truly dig this one. Now one may read the bed part and think it's about sex.. ahaha. No, not even close. You see, I believe "the bed" is a symbol for putting something to rest. I believe this person maybe has something to say but wont..

    General CommentI'm actually a poet, and I tend to write in KevMo's sorta cryptic, confusing style, especially when writing something personal. So this is what I see, at least in the "chorus":

    95%
    Happened in the home
    Swallowed by the bed
    And caught in the phone.

    My summary of this is that the 5% we don't know about was something someone said to him that he began to doubt he could trust the person, OR there was a small argument, OR he felt a pang when he knew he'd have to confess something on the phone later. I dunno for sure, but it feels to me like something along those lines.

    Next, the other 95% happened in his home, specifically in his bedroom. It's possible that he has a phone in his room, and that he was now proceeding to call this person he was just with to discuss what happened or make a confession or something.

    I might tackle the other verses and choruses and whatnot at some later time, but I'll have to think about this one.
