Verse 1: You made me believe I was worthless - Like trying wasn’t even worth it I kept trying to perfect perfect - So you would see me for me And now I know what hell is - It’s feeling completely helpless You even called my selflessness selfish - Left me no room to breathe Pre-Chorus: Ohhh demon, dragon - Where is your compassion?

Home 03:10
Verse 1: I don’t know how many months I was living out a suitcase Always packing up and moving on to a new place Lord it’s been so long; singing the wanderer’s song In my mind’s camera I look back and remember Surfing on couches all of last December The city made me strong…but it feels so good to be home Chorus: Where I can play my records loud; and put my feet up on the couch (ohhh!) Leave my glasses in the sink; and just sit back and think… To be home, to be home….to be home Ohhhh to be home, to be home, to be home…to be home Verse 2: Met a young vixen and got lost in the passion Ended up living in a millionaire’s mansion But I knew it was wrong…singing another man’s song In my protest I ended up homeless Felt myself crushed under the stress But the glory is I’m strong…and it feels so good to be home Chorus: Bridge: I didn’t know where the road was going… Waking up confused in the morning… But I kept holding on…till I could sing a song called home…. Chorus: Outro: To be home, to be home, to be home…to be home To be home, to be home, to be home….to be home

Verse 1: We’ve been down a lonely road Don’t you think by now we’d know How it feels to be alone? We prayed to the flashing lights We stayed awake all night We just never realized the truth Pre-Chorus 1: That if you believe, before you can see, it’ll be, it’ll be If you can taste before you touch, if you can feel before the rush If you can dream before it’s done…I know we can I know we can make it to the promised land Verse 2: And we bought what we didn’t need Thought that it would set us free And now the trees and rivers bleed for us Pre-Chorus 2: But if you go in, before you begin, we all win If you can kneel before you run, if you can feel before it comes If you can see that all is one, I know we can I know we can make it to the promised land Chorus (Instrumental: Bridge: And they won’t take us away in their chariots No matter how we pray for deliverance Woe to those who steal the throne…stepping on the ones below We are kings all on our own…and queens yes I know Pre-Chorus 3: But if you go in….side the temple, past the mental And into the middle see an eye….do you see the light? If you can taste before you touch, if you can feel before the rush If you can dream before it’s done…I know we can I know we can make it to the promised land Chorus: Ohhhh, make it to the promised land Ohhhh, make it to the promised land Ohhhh, make it to the promised land
