By the light of the moon
I'm comin' home
Howling all the way
I'm comin' home
On my hands and knees
I'm comin' home
I know when I've been beat, yeah
I'm comin' home

By the skin of my teeth
I'm comin' home
By the sound of my feet
You'll know I'm comin' home
I'm comin' home . . .
But I ain't comin' home for you

I'm riding out the wind
I'm comin' home
It don't matter where I been
I'm comin' home
Crawling on all fours
I'm comin' home
Turning brick walls into doors
I'm comin' home

I got that taste in my mouth
I got a hunger in my gut
My skin has turned to leather
My hair is banded rope
My knees have buckled beneath the weight of doubt
But now I miss the things I have done without

I'm comin' home
But I ain't comin' home for you
I'm comin' home
And there ain't nothing you can do about it
Ain't nothing you can do about it

Don't leave the light on
Don't need you anymore
My old friend put a cross above the door
Hang up the boards
I'm on my way . . .
I'm comin' home
I'm comin' home
I'm comin' home
I'm comin' home
I'm comin' home

    General CommentThis is (like their other albums) a concept album. In this song, our hero, Ennio Morricone, breaks out of prison and is heading home to see his girl.

    In the next song, "Ball and Chain", he's describing his relationship to his gal.

    In "Rumbrave", he's introducing himself and telling about a few of his exploits.

    In "Fuego", he finally makes it home and has just-out-of-prison sex with his girl.

    In "Second Option", he's talking about an uppity enemy of his and implying his intent to kill the guy.

    In "Steal away", he, along with his girl and brothers head out on their mission. He tells them that they'll stick together no matter what happens.

    "Ash" is the tale of their actual deed. They killed his enemy and burnt down his house. He also realises that he's changed. He's no longer the beast he used to be.

    "The Black Spot" further builds upon his realisation how his changes and condemnation of his brothers for their behavior.

    "52 Ford" is about finding his girl, who's now shacked up with another man. He wants to kill her to finally cleanse himself and break free from his criminal life. At the last minute he decides not to kill her, but as he goes to leave her man comes home, thinks he is a threat, and stabs Ennio.

    "Spring Break" is the aftermath of the fight with his ex's man. Ennio finds himself in the middle of a desert somewhere. He vows to do good from now on and heads toward Mexico to start a new life for himself.
