I've been living my life in a tiny box
Hoping that you would give a toss,
Kidding myself that I gave my all
But I built these walls.

When I was a kid I said I'd make a bet
I'll walk a straight line and live without regret
Following the course I laid out in my head
But it all went South.

Easy to say I want to pulverize,
Going to break through with a clenched up angry fist.
Took me years of pain to realize
I'm never going to free myself like this.
I'll walk backwards every step I took
Turning bolts around the way.
I'll dismantle this whole prison cell,
And I'll understand more clearly when you say
"Come home."

I could spend a whole year and try to paint these walls
With rolling green hills and a waterfall
Kidding myself I'm really on the ball
But it won't change a thing.

I feel the rocks beneath my feet
The dark horizon calls to me
With each step I'm coming home

In the air familiarity
Quiet whispers in the passing trees
Seem to say I'm not alone

I'm still in pain but it's not killing me
The scars they fade just like a calming sea
I'll take the oars, it's time to row

Forget the way I left
Forget the things I said
Forget the barren years alone
I'm home.
