Antix – Come Home Lyrics:
This life is quick, It’s over in a millisecond
We’re just a candle flicker waving in the wind’s breath
and I know you’re weary of that heavy type of breathing
So close your eyes, go to sleep
And get to dreaming
I know you’re tired and confused
These ain’t the best of times
It’s hard trying to see what’s going on inside your mind
It’s like a cloud has set in behind your eyes
So let it rain, until its dry inside
I know you feel like you’re all alone and isolated
No matter how hard you try, your thoughts are aggravated
And when you scream that frustration is demonstrated
I feel your pain; I wish I could alleviate it
But life’s a gamble, something like a hand of cards
Some get it easy, some forever scarred
We both know what the fragility can do to you
We saw it all too well back in 2002
I wish I could tell you that I could make it better
It’s all a rainstorm that you have to weather
But this is your fight, and it’s inside you
But just know that I’m beside you fighting too
I know you’re cold outside
I know scared sometimes
I know you’re trying to come home
And when that darkness falls
And the frostbite sets in
I hope you find your way back home

Young fighter, doing battle in the night
I love you with the fabric of my soul and that’s no lie
I know you think that at times that you’re alone
I feel it with you; it hurts me in my bones
The lights are on to guide through the setting ether
The cascade of blackness that comes between us
The shrouding mist that exists and persists around you
But ill looking in the fog, until I’ve found you
Please forgive me for my temper
And bullish rage
I feel frustrated at times, I can’t contain
It’s hard for me to see you down
It hurts my soul
And I don’t know how to express that but lose control
I wish you’d help yourself too
And learn to grow
Learn to deal with those demons that are taking hold
You’ve got the fight
And this is the fight of your life
So stand up and stare those demons in the eyes
And sock it to ‘em
Yeah, throw those bones
Let it be known who the boss is up in that home
But once again… and really so you know
I’m beside you, you’ll never be alone
I know you’re cold outside
I know scared sometimes
I know you’re trying to come home
And when that darkness falls
And the frostbite sets in
I hope you find your way back home
And when you look at me
With those sad, sad eyes
I wish I could take the pain away
The suns in the sky but you don’t see it yet
There’s a raincloud living above your head
So follow my voice
And I’ll lead you home
Trust me I will lead you home
And follow my lead
Into the light
And everything will be alright
I know you’re cold outside
I know scared sometimes
I know you’re trying to come home
And when that darkness falls
And the frostbite sets in
I hope you find your way back home
