Coming home Lyrics by Caedmon's Call
Coming home by Caedmon's Call
Well I am a burnt offering
Crawling off the altar and
Back in to the fire
And with my smoke-filled lungs
I cry out for freedom
While locking and chaining myself
To my rotting desires
And I hate the stench,
But I swallow the key
And with it stuck in my throat
Can you hear me, can you hear me
I'm coming home, I'm coming home
I'm coming home, I'm coming home,
but I'm still a long way off
I am shelled-shocked, and I have walked
Through the trenches full of tears
With the mortars of memory
Exploding in my burning ears
You stripped the trees of Lebanon
And now you're stripping me
Of the bark of false morality
And the bite of selfish greed
Can you hear me?
Will you run ot me?
Will you come to me?
Will you meet me, will you greet me
Will you drag me home 'cause I'm still a long way off
