lyrics

i was down south
building my own
when i found out
of your impending death

i am sorry
we made it out alive
twenty two hours
up I-95

i redyed
my hair back to black
it's what you do
when times get tough

we hadn't been
eating for all these weeks
scrounged up coins
tried to get some sleep

depths of hell
finally get some rest
i am glad
i have made it here

new
house
new body

birthday
passes
and i go home

i brought
along a lot
of things that hurt me

and
i
let them go-o-o
g-o-o-o
g-o-o-o and simmer in me

the
pain's
gotten old but

habits
are
hard to break and

a
hundred
miles to the east

try
to get some re-e-est
r-e-est
r-e-est you foolish child

set still
let to settle
start to move
all over again

in virginia
i first exclaim that
this is what
home feels to me

moving forward
familiar townships
in appalachians
you say we don't deserve this

i can't help
but to agree
we don't
-

further south
further north
i've remembered
what home is

get back
to it and
i cannot rest
-
