There's no yellow bricks to follow back and run from that disaster
Familiar sins come crashing in and sever forever and after
My old friend, it's time I leave you here for once, for all in frozen alabaster
Believe me, there's no place like home
There's no place like home

A shallow grave where I can keep it safe or hideaway, for just in case I need it
My old friend, it's time to say goodbye again
No need to tell me where you've been, I feel it

Shallow graves for shallow hearts
For pick-me-ups and fall-aparts
For promises that never started right

Carolina, Carolina, tell me how I'm gonna get down from here
You only ever just disappear, but I can't let you go

Carolina, Carolina, tell you I'm gonna get the ending right
I know I started it wrong but I, I think that it's as easy as
One, two, three, do you see what I do?
Truth or dare, yes I double dare you
You, you, me, now I think you got it right

(There's no place like home)
Oh, another day on the assembly line
Everybody better march in time
Cause the fact that we don't care why
You've been saying, "Coulda, shoulda, woulda"

Oh, another day on the assembly line
Everybody better march in time
Cause the fact that we don't care why
You've been saying, "Coulda, shoulda, woulda"

Toy soldiers, will you follow?
Toy soldiers, will you follow?

Face when it's dire

This is true love, ever after
This is true love, ever after
True love, ever after
This is true love, ever after

Once upon a time, this place was beautiful and mine
But now it's just a bottom line
There's no yellow bricks but
Happily ever after we lived,
The end

    General Comment:This song really only makes sense if you read the storyline upon which the concept album is based.

    My Interpretation:I think this song is basically the conclusion to the album; how after all coming all this way through all these stories in the album, they finally decide to take it back to where they came from, hence the title “No Place like Home”. The ending promises other stories to come, but for now, they’re going to take it back to where they came from.
