Home

In these vigilant times
I daydream, an innocuous crime
My motionless stance
In my mind, I wander the land
A bleak, a dismal trance

Constrained, unsafe
Left in shame
And now I can see
My town is painted red
Here forever I'll be
Where once my tears were shed

On that day, in our place
I recall the smell of the rain
And I'd protect you from them
If you want me to take
Take you there again

Good night my love
Let me watch you sleep
From here or above
Words like these
Won't leave this place
Be haunted by our trace
The trace of our home

The home they want call their own
But for the air that I breathe
The dreams and divine
The memories I'll bring to
A place far from home
The home they want to call province of Rome
I'm trapped without guards
Within a state I can't grasp
But we're still free
(We're still free)

I'm waiting for
The clouds to part, all in vain
Nature forsaken
Once admired by us all
Does it know we're scared?

To move, scared to wake
Scared just to be who we were
What matters is just you and me
And the path that leads us home

The home they want call their own
But for the air that I breathe
The dreams and divine
The memories I'll bring to
A place far from home
The home they want to call province of Rome
I'm trapped without guards
Within a state I can't grasp
But we are still free (free)

Whoa, encircled by friends
The pressure deepens
Dazed by illusions
My reason weakens
But I won't let you fall into deep forlornness

I won't let you ponder the why in distress
A mechanical smile
As I lift my face towards the sun
And return to denial

I weep as I kiss the ground
The trees that I'll soon miss
The songs we sang will ring out
The memories will resound

Home
The home they want call their own
But for the air that I breathe
The dreams and divine
The memories I'll bring to
A place far from home
The home they want to call province of Rome
I'm trapped without guards
Within a state I can't grasp
But we're still free (free)
