Got To Be a Better Home Than ‘Round Here

Got To Be a Better Home Than Round Here

What sort of dread when they spin ’round your head
till you got no direction no more
like a drunk on the street dodging people you meet
like they’re holes in the floor

What kind of day when they make you say
things that you don’t believe
nighttime will roll like a thief who stole
the heart right off your sleeve

Got to be a better home than round here
walls are crumbling down around here
divide and deceive….I’m down on my knees
got to be a better home than round here

What kind of love falls from above
with conditions attached with screws
too long to stay could sweep you away
the same way the rivers move

Got to be a better home than round here
won’t look you in the eye around here
fear and regret is all you’ll get
got to be a better home than round here
