"Almost Home (with Damien Jurado)" as written by Richard Melville Hall and Damien Jurado....
I'll decide
In a moment's time
To turn away
Leave it all behind

So we climb
So we're all are told the line
The crowd is home
The treasure found

So let it go
Wake up, wake up, wake up
We're almost home
So let it go
Wake up, wake up, wake up
We're almost home

Time to scout
When I was a child there
I know at heart
To be at your side

So we climb
Somewhere I will draw the line
I dream it, too
The stars were mine

So let it go
Wake up, wake up, wake up
We're almost home
So let it go
Wake up, wake up, wake up
We're almost home

I'll decide
In a moment's time
To turn away
Leave it all behind

So we climb
Somewhere I will draw the line
The crowd is home
The treasure found

So let it go
Wake up, wake up, wake up
We're almost home
So let it go
Wake up, wake up, wake up
We're almost home
So let it go
Wake up, wake up, wake up
We're almost home
So let it go
Wake up, wake up, wake up
We're almost home

    MemoryThis is a song that really speaks to me. I associated it with my dog's untimely death, which broke my heart. But this song made me think about how I'd done my best to give him a worthwhile life, a happy one which he lived to its peak; he was a glue that bound our family together for eight years. It makes me think that in his afterlife, he'd live in our memories, and keep us going strong. And when you love him like we did, that's more than we could have asked for. That's why this song means so much to me. It's beautifully uplifting.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful and serene, as most Moby songs are. :) To me, it really makes me think about my silly little life and what wondrous things await in the afterlife. But I'm not exactly sure what it's really, because last I knew, Moby wasn't the religious man he used to be.

    My InterpretationI see this song as a take on human consciousness and honoring the soul. We all have expectations thrust upon us from society, parents, ect. Moby is telling us to 'let it go' and 'wake up' to what our soul is telling us. 'We're almost home' signifying that when we listen to what our soul is saying, we are truly enlightened and conscious. Once this happens on an individual level, it can be spread, and reaching this level throughout our entire species can be something Moby is getting at. Saying, with all that is happening currently, that there is an awakening happening. Wake up, society, because we are 'almost home'. Meaning, we are becoming an enlightened and conscious society, and we can reach that.
