Home Lyrics

Our shores erode away
You can't come home, you need to stay
Since you've been gone they say
The world's moved on, so you can't come home

Two young men angered by the way other men behave
Sign a page believing they can help those men to change
Their families, sad to see them go, smile as they wave
They nod and train, learn the ways to identify the strange

They'll never know another day
Without some goal for the agency
The more they see, the more they want to run
'Cause they can't free a dead man with their gun

One comes to a foreign land full of his enemies
He's told he's got the shot, and should fire as he please
But he's unsure who to aim for, he can't tell them apart
Still pulling back on that black trigger, he shatters his own heart

All sides treat their own like pawns in nature's game
Then when they die they're honored, and the other is to blame
And when they kill they're honored still, though no one knows the name
Although we think we think so differently, we all still feel the same

Our shores erode, away (We've got a box stamped with your name)
You can't come home, you need to stay (Until we ship your body back across the sea)
Since you've been gone they say (This duty ends on your dying day)
The world's moved on, so you can't come home (Even if you come back, nothing will be the same)
