I Can't Go Home

1998 - 2010

The happy hearts these walls contain

Don't mix well with my somber soul

Amongst the crowd I can not stay

But I can't go home

No, I can't go home.

If I stomach one more smiley face,

I might vomit the hunger I can't control.

Though my eyes may twitch, my limbs may shake,

I can't go home;

No, I can't go home.

My tears won't disturb the peace, I pray,

I hope they can't see the pain I hold.

If I beg or I shout or I plead I'm afraid

They may send me home;

But I can't go home.
