Long have I wandered from the place I once called home
Hoping to change the world but the world changed me
They say the slippery slope is a danger to the soul
But giving up the slope can really make you whole

I spent years on years trying to stay upon the side
Fearing that if I slipped, I’d be like those who reside
Down in the valley where they’ve given up the ghost
Now those strangers have become my gracious hosts

I can’t go home again
I can’t go home again

Faith was an exercise in sticking to the script
Love was another word for shunning those who slipped
Hope was a distant home for those who played the game
Hell was a wall we built between the in and the inane

I can’t go back to who I was, I can’t go home to where I’m from
But I’ll show you that crumbing house
Where my faith was fed,
Where my hope was stirred,
Where you called my name
