What do you think they would say
If I stood up and I walked away
Nobody here really understands me,
And so I'll wave goodbye I'm fine
And I'm fine

Tones of home

Said you don't like the way I'm living
Tones of home
Tones of home
And so I wave goodbye
I'm flyin, and I'm flyin home

And I always thought this would be
The land of milk and honey
Oh but I come to find out
That it's all hate and money
And there's a canopy of greed holding me down

Tones of home

Said you don't like the way I'm living
Tones of home
Tones of home
And so I wave goodbye
I'm flyin, I'm flyin home

See I'm so high to you, but I'll fade away
I said you're on your own

Your mom and daddy said,
That your sister said,
And your brother's saying
They're saying everybody,
They're saying everybody
Is sayin I, eye..

All my friends patronize me,
And they say "YO hey boy!
Have you found what you're looking for?"
It seems they don't really know me
Cause it's here, and it's what they can't see

Tones of home

Said you don't like the way I'm living
Tones of home
Tones of home
And so I wave goodbye
And I'm flyin, and I'm flyin home
