Where Is Home
© 1993 Mark Allen

Where is home - is it far away
Can you take me there, can you point the way
Iíve been lost since birth, all this time, all alone
Where is home

See the man over there Ė the one without a voice
A cry for compassion was mistaken for noise
Standing in the longest line of people just like him
Heís looking for a handout but his future looks dim
Judicial injustice stole this manís core
A tidal wave of politics pushed him miles from shore
Ignorance and apathy on the sleeves of unknowns
He hangs his head and softly moans

CHORUS
Where is home - is it far away
Can you take me there, can you point the way
Iíve been lost since birth, all this time, all alone
Where is home

See the woman over there Ė the one with her kid
The little boy barged a boundary, doesnít matter what he did
Itís expected at his age, but her trouble turns to hate
And kills the very courage that she helped create
She lashes out with the sound of my own motherís tongue
Always right, even when she knew she was wrong
A hard right across an already bruised cheek
And through his tears he tries to speak

CHORUS
Where is home - is it far away
Can you take me there, can you point the way
Iíve been lost since birth, all this time, all alone
Where is home

See the man over here Ė the one in my shoes
No bulletins, no earth-shattering news
Heís been searching for empathy in people like you
With a heart to share with the world thatís big enough for two
Digging deep, humanity hides behind a mask
Protecting them from love, itís such an arbitrary task
Is there any reason he has to ask
Any reason he has to ask
