If home is where the heart is, why do I feel so fucking heartless?
The crumbling skyline cuts a vicious horizon, sinking it's teeth into the cold September sky.
Decaying towers of steel reach with crooked spires for the heavens, like bones of the hollow chest of this town, torn wide for the scavengers.
Mother mercy, take my hand.
Follow me through this forsaken land.
Father time, return what's mine.
The innocence you stole from these eyes.
Because I feel numb. For the vision burning before me is one of former glory.
An icon cast in the light of freer times, now writhes in a bed of lies.
Hope doesn't live here.
Love doesn't live here anymore.
Mother mercy, take my hand.
Follow me through this forsaken land.
Father time, return what's mine.
The innocence you stole from these eyes.
Because I just feel numb.

    His heart doesnt lie at home because reality has hit him. He realises the suffering in the world and cant take his position for granted. If he focused on home he effectively becpmrd heartless as he ignores the hardships others suffer. Winston shows how 3rd world issues have effected his view on reality and how his heart really relies in helping them.

    He sees the world as a forsaken land. Maybe there are many reasons why he belives this, i.e. "sinners", but his home has become victim to it (maybe he belives there is no place on earth left free of sin). He wants father time to return his tainted youth, "the innocence you stole from these eyes. " maybe this is a message to all of us that if we live our lives as sinners than we will eventually be asking to give us a second chance (which obviously we can never re-live the past).
