    You can't call it home
    If the roof caves in on your head
    It doesn't feel like home
    If it's where your feelings are dead

    It's a tombstone not home
    If you just go there to lay down
    It's a monarchy not home
    If a patriarch refuses your right to a throne

    You won't ever feel at home
    If dreams can pull you to a better place
    You won't ever regret home
    If it's found in the smile on your face

    Home embraces the mustard seed hope of the soul
    It's a place of heartfelt truth not hearsay
    Home is a paradise not a paradigm
    You'll know its beauty once you find it
