Parkway Drive – Home Is For The Heartless (feat. Brett Gurewitz of Bad Religion) lyrics

If home is where the heart is
Why do I feel so fucking heartless?

The crumbling skyline
Cuts a vicious horizon
Sinking its 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

Woah, woah
Mother Mercy, take my hand
Woah, woah
Follow me through this forsaken land

Woah, woah
Father Time, return what's mine
The innocence you stole from these eyes
'Cause I just feel, I just 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
Hope doesn't live here
Love doesn't live
Love doesn't live here anymore
Anymore
Anymore

Woah, woah
Mother mercy, take my hand
Woah, woah
Follow me through this forsaken land

Woah, woah
Father Time, return what's mine
The innocence you stole from these eyes
'Cause I just feel, I just feel numb

'Cause I just feel numb
I just feel numb
I just feel numb

Woah, woah
Woah, woah

Woah, woah
Mother mercy, take my hand
Woah, woah
Follow me through this forsaken land

Woah, woah
Father Time, return what's mine
The innocence you stole from these eyes
'Cause I just feel, I just feel numb
'Cause I just feel, I just feel numb
'Cause I just feel, I just feel

    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).
