I Wanna Go Home

Verse 1:
Another scream
Another yell
I can hear, doncha know?
I’m not deaf, I can hear your words
(every single one)
And I’m sick, I’m tired
Of all your petty fights
Hey I have to sit through them and listen
(that’s worse than participating!)

Chorus:
Oh I’M in my HOUSE
But,
I WANNA GO HO-ME
Oh I’M in my HOUSE
But,
I WANNA GO HO-ME
This ain’t a home--!

Verse 2:
The tears just keep on rushing by
An endless streaming river
(It seems)
I try to cover up my ears
(I CAN)
I try to block out the noise
(I CAN’T!)
The feelings rushing by are enough
To drive the noise into my head, anyway
(It keeps on going)

Chorus:
Oh I’M in my HOUSE
But,
I WANNA GO HO-ME
Oh I’M in my HOUSE
But,
I WANNA GO HO-ME
This ain’t a home--!


Bridge:
Oh
Everything is
burning, burning, burning through
my brain
blasting things to pieces with their flames
and I cant seem to remember a face
(that smiles)
And I don’t think I’ll remember
(for a while)
Raw emotion will keep on
Turning, turning turning
My mind
to dust

Chorus:
Oh I’M in my HOUSE
But,
I WANNA GO HO-ME
Oh I’M in my HOUSE
But,
I WANNA GO HO-ME
This ain’t a home--!
This ain’t a home.

thanks so much! I wrote this song one day because that exactly what happens in my house. Parents seem to think that when they fight with their children or with one another, that the other sibling not involved isn't affected or hurt in some way. Its really hard to drown out the noise of two people you care about fighting one another. Even though the anger and emotion isn't being directed at you, you still feel hurt. It can be considered a kind of unintentional verbal abuse.
