Homeward Bound

Let go of the bonds that break you
Let go of the ties that bind
Relax your grip on what's already gone
Give it the freedom of mind
It's already left you behind

Turn from the scales of justice
Turn from the burning cross
Stop staring at the treasures of man
They have an unhealthy gloss
Accept a lifetime of loss

Cut off the rope you hang from
Cut yourself off from the rain
Remove the terrors of living and life
What have you left to gain?
Only a great deal of pain
