Verse 1

Another day in this carnival of souls
Another night settles in, as quickly as it goes
The memories are shadows; ink on the page
And I can't seem to find my way home

Chorus

And it's almost like
Your heaven's trying everything
Your heaven's trying everything
To keep me out

Verse 2

All the places I've been and things I've seen
A million stories that made up a million shattered dreams
The faces of people I'll never see again
And I can't seem to find my way home

Chorus

Cause it's almost like
Your heaven's trying everything
To break me down
Cause it's almost like
Your heaven's trying everything
To keep me out

[Guitar Solo]

Chorus

Cause it's almost like
Your heaven's trying everything
To break me down
Cause it's almost like
Your heaven's trying everything
Your heaven's trying everything
To break me down
To break me down

Outro

To break me down
Your heavens trying everything
Your heavens trying everything
To break me... Down

    Since the song is called 'Far From Home' and the Album is 'War is the Answer' and with verse 2 about all the places, shattered dreams, never see the faces again, can't find my way home. I think this is a soldier suffering Post Traumatic Stress after coming home from the war and now everything is changed for him even his faith and belief in religion and maybe he sees himself too sinful after all the killing to make it to heaven. Because of the war he's probably suicidal now.

    Autumnheart is the closest to correct. There are multiple interpretations but I feel his/hers is the best and closest. I'm currently thinking of joining the united states marine corps so when I here this song I hope that if I become a marine and have to kill day to day that I won't hear this, my favorite song, and break because of the true facts that no matter the reason the taking of another human life is murder regardless of if it is a merciful killing or not. If you want the truth here's the song. You will lose friends in the military especially the marine corps because they are the first deployed and the last sent home. Semper fi. Oorah!
