"Get Us Home" as written by and Drew Malcom Wootton Myles Peter Wootton....
I've seen his face before
And I wonder what it means
Three lonely figures standing at my door
And one he spoke to me
With a letter from my home
And a fever in his eyes
A chill went through my bones
And I bid my host goodbye
He gave me no reply
And I never looked behind

You've gotta get us home right now
There's no comfort in the cradle where we sleep
It's a land of dark and wide
It won't let us survive for free

I made my way on trains
Through the brick and the lanes
Where the burnt wrecks lay dead on the plains
And it leaves your heart the same
But it must be in disguise
If in this distance is my prize
Oh, out here sometimes it can play a cruel trick on the mind
It's playing one on mine
Such a cruel trick on the mind

You've gotta get us home right now
There's no comfort in the cradle where we sleep
It's a land of dark and wide
It won't let us survive for free

You've gotta get us home
You've gotta lay it in stone

    General Commentat first its like he's being called home because his family member is unwell and he's journeying back across wild country back to them or something. I'm really not sure tbh. I love the texture of this song and the riff, the rhythm makes it perfect driving music ^^
