Home Again

Well, I've been to the mountain and I feel off the edge
Stared at hundreds of ceilings from hundreds of beds
I saw so many people with no thoughts in their heads
They just don't want to think any more

Then I took to the rails and the back of the bus
But the road to salvation was covered with dust
Looked all over for love, I found nothing but lust
I saw everyone roll on the floor

They were rolling on the floor
Just passing time 'til the third world war
I wish I was home again, home again
I wish I was home again, home again

And if I had a place that I called home
You know I'd be there, I'd be home again

I saw fields of rust that used to be green
The hills were alive with the sound of machines
I jumped in the water but I couldn't get clean
No matter how hard that I tried

Every city and town looked exactly the same
I've forgotten the faces, I've forgotten the names
I've felt all their sadness, I've felt all their pain
Don't know how many times that I cried

Oh, how many times I cried
Like something I once loved had died
I wish I was home again, home again
I wish I was home again, home again

And if I had a place to hang my hat and coat
You know I'd be there, I'd be home again

I saw everyone roll on the floor
You were rolling on the floor
Just passing time 'til the third world war
I wish I was home again, home again
I wish I was home again, home again

And if I had a place that I called home
You know I'd be there, I'd be home again
I'd be home again
I'd be home again
