Homesick (new song by me)

Homesick
____________________________

There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home
Especially when you can’t face life living in your own

Father’s just watching his homeless boy go
Enjoying the emo show with some scotch

Nosebleed blood blotches are all over his shirt
Hurting on the inside, out is covered in dirt

Mother is just another old yeller with no emotion
Antonym of the ‘lil devotion filled Hellen Keller

He walks down the street unequipped and all alone
Even the holey shoes on his feet need to be sown

There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home
Especially when you can’t face life living in your own

Sister’s goodbye kiss tastes like his missing poison
After the reminiscent, he’s not the only one done

He meets the highway, greets the sound of cars rushing past
From the surrounding weight his decision is made too fast

Brother can barely talk, and he is going to have to walk all by himself
But it’s a very likely possibility that he will join his siblings in hell

With a leap of faith he runs away from all the abuse
Keeping the rose red bouquet in hand just in case
As lonely stray he stays near a family buffet place
Until he realizes a busy highway’s alternate use

There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home
Especially when you can’t face life living on your own
A warm bed for someone who’s already dead inside is a healthy postpone
For death, he had a hospital on speed dial but they disconnected his phone

Brother is much older, singing in the rain as he strolls home alone
“Father, I need to know, where in god’s name did my siblings go”
There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home
Especially when you can’t face life living on your own
