Tissue Issue – Far From Home lyrics

[Verse:]
You did what you were told
You did what you were taught
You played along and worked for the nation
You didn't see it coming
You didn't help it do
You never thought it would but you were mistaken

[Verse 2:]
You saw the master die
You heard the people cry
You watched the country go out of control
You had to run away
You had to leave your home
You had to hide from them and lie to you family

(No matter how I try, I just cannot see)

[Chorus:]
You didn't light the fire yet it burns you now
You can't put out the flame of war
You are keeping your belongings in a plastic bag
You are far from home

[Verse 3:]
You kept a loaded gun
You could not be seen or
You'd have to save them all through slaughter and suicide
You had nowhere to go where
You wouldn't be followed
You had to take a chance and hope to be lucky

(It brings hope to heart to see you rose up and fought again)
[Chorus:]
You didn't light the fire yet it burns you now
You can't put out the flame of war
You are keeping your belongings in a plastic bag
You are far from home
Now you fought your way through living hell to a strange new place
Where you're greeted with mistrust
Some will hate you 'cus you survived, they do not see
That you're far from home

[Stick]
(So far from home)
No matter how I try I just cannot see
What sounds to me like nightmares was your reality
Although your story is one of senseless pain
It brings hope to heart to see you rose up and fought again

So far from home

[Chorus:]
And now you fought your way through living hell to a strange new place
Where you're greeted with mistrust
Some will hate you 'cus you survived, they do not see
That you're far from home
Some will hate you 'cus you survived, they do not see
That you're far from home
That you're far from home
That you're far from home
