Lying still, head awake
Eyes closed tight and thoughts ablaze
It's crossing like a river going through my mind
Just taking hits from the hands of time

Silence can be so odd
It's like looking around for the eyes of God
There's a truth somewhere that I just can't find
Taking hits from the hands of time

And I wonder if you were here right now
Would you sit with me beneath this darkened shroud
In this prison built with bricks of shame
I want to tear it down to the frame

If you smash your life up against the wall
You want to break it like a bottle and just let go
But I don't know if there's a God at all
I just know I can't live like this no more
I just know I can't live like this no more

And the hours go by endlessly
And the days are spent breathlessly
And the nights begging for some sleep
All the endless time alone

In the faces of the boys in line
There was fear in their eyes
And they all
We just want to find a way home
Home
Home
Home
Home

I can hear the birds, see the light outside
Stand up like a man and swallow my pride
I can write these words down in a rhyme
They've been beaten from me by the hands of time

And I don't know why it's always this way
And I hang my head low in the light of day
All I know is I'm tired of being afraid
I gotta walk this road on these bricks I've laid

All the trumptes and the marching bands
And the thunder claps, the trembling hands
All the people stood up in the stands
And I just felt so alone

'Cause the halos look like rusted chains
In the light
As we scream
In the dark
I just wanted to find a way home
Home
Home
Home

The truth is I'm not brave or sure
I just know I can't live like this no more
I don't know what I've been waiting for
I just know I can't live like this no more

The truth is I'm not brave or sure
I just know I can't live like this no more
I don't know what I've been waiting for
I just know I can't live like this no more

And I don't know if this road will end at your door
I just know I can't live like this no more
I don't even know what I'm headed for
I just know I can't live like this no more
I just know I can't live like this no more
I just know I can't live like this no more
