"Home" as written by and Cullum,ross/mclelland,sandy/bose,miguel/toulson,clarke....
Wreckage, my mind
Insecure, all the time
Once loved, now paralyzed
I once thought, I'll never die

Frustrated, our simple life
No one listens, everyone lies
Who said "home is where you hide"?

Strong as shit and now you see

I'm home, leave it to me
(leave it to me now that you've seen)
I'm home, leave it to me
(leave it to me)

From left to right
From left to right

I tried, my father said,
I'm scared, she always said
They grab and pull until I tear

Meaning, too deep to swim
When's a good time for the end?
Who said I was your friend?

I'm home, leave it to me
(leave it to me now that you've seen)
I'm home, leave it to me
(leave it to me)

From left to right
From left to right
Suffocated, our simple life
No one listens, everyone dies
Never a chance, how could you see?

I'm home, leave it to me (leave it to me)
I'm home, leave it to me (leave it to me now that you've seen)
I'm home, leave it to me (leave it to me)
I'm home, leave it to me (what the fuck did you say?)

From left to right
From left to right

    General CommentI'm not really sure about this one,but there are parts of the song which make me think this can only be about having a tough time at home " Who said Home is where you hide? "
    I think that this is about how when Sevendust were starting out there were a lot of people telling them it wouldnt work out and now that they have made three )or at the time of this album two) great albums with a huge fanbase, they are home.
    "I'm home - leave it to me (leave it to me)
    I'm home - leave it to me (leave it to me now that you've seen)
    I'm home - leave it to me (leave it to me)
    I'm home - leave it to me (what the fuck did you say?)"
    i think that part sums up the feeling of "told you we'd be succesful"
    anyways im done

    General Comment"Home" is one of those hard-to-grasp songs, but I'll give it a shot. I think it's about having rough times at home, and being scared and having no place to run to. And then you just have to take charge of these issues (I'm home - leave it to me!) and make them stop on your own. This may also reflect their musical career.

    General CommentThis song is about a bad domestic relationship....how a man, once a child, reflects on his experience with his family growing up and how they were so f'd up and how his parents' fighting affected him. The parents battled for control, thus:
    I'm home - leave it to me (leave it to me)
    He personifies the struggle between mother and father:
    "From left to right.. "
    when he says "from left to right" he's illustrating the fight and struggle for control from one parent to another, back and forth--like a see-saw.
    These 3 lines sum up the song:
    "I tried - my Father said,
    I'm scared - she [Mother] always said
    They grab and pull until I [me as a child] tear"
    These other lines describe the situation in more detail:
    "Wreckage - My mind
    Insecure - All the time
    Once loved - Now Paralyzed
    I once thought - I'll never die
    Frustrated - Our simple Life
    No one listens - Everyone lies
    Who said "Home is where you hide"?
    ...
    Suffocated - our simple life
    No one listens - everyone dies
    Never a chance - how could you see?"
