Miles Away 04:49
Today's the day, you lay it on the line Moved on from that stepping stone Been used so many times You woke up early with the sun To get a jump on those who try to hold you down And it's clear from here so many miles away It's clear from here you could run against the grain Today's the day, but who are they to say Which way you're supposed to sway One step ahead, taking two steps back Their still holding now, they still hold you down And it's clear from here so many miles away It's clear from here you should run against the grain Oh, there she goes again Out there on her limb There she goes again For forgiveness on the wind Today's the day, you start again Deep breath, next step, begin again It's all behind you now Like the others on the line They can't hold you now, no can't hold you down

Oh Daddy 05:58
Oh Daddy, When you comin' home Been out here on the line, trying to survive, baby Oh Momma, when;s he comin' home he's been out there on the line, helping us survive, baby Oh Baby, I'm comin' home real soon Been out here on the line, trying to survive, baby Oh Daddy, when you comin' home Been out here on the line, you know that i'm a liar, baby

Don't Say 04:49
Don't say I didn't try Hold your head up high, just like I hold mine Don't say those words Don't say goodbye Don;t say I didn't try I'm searching for something, I know I might never find That piece of mind I've been a fool, a fool for you but your story just don't fly Don't say I didn't try I'm searching for something, I know I might never find That piece of mind Take those three words, Take 'em down to the fire Throw 'em in and watch 'em burn Don't say I didn't try I'm searching for something, I know I might never find That piece of mind I've been a rich man, a poor man too a beggar, a thief, a liar for you

I'm searchin for pieces from the bomb trying to find a reason it went off at all I'm running on empty, batteries low I'm at the end of the rope, maybe it's time to go Searching for exits, what's the plan Making connections, with who I am it keeps coming back to you, like it's your fault, it keeps coming back to you, but this ain't your cross at all I'm running on empty, batteries low I'm at the end of the rope, maybe it's time to go what is home to you everything, nothing

Easy to Love 04:23
They say a good man is a good man then you know so I do my best to be a good man for you if you see me smiling, know that it's all you I could dance alone with just your picture in a crowded room and i know I'm not easy to love who said loving was easy, it's not easy They say a good woman can be so hard to find so I'm stopping to smell the roses my love when your not with me, it breaks my heart but i can feel you there across the distance when we're apart and i know I'm not easy to love who said loving was easy, it's not easy They say a real love, can be so hard to find so I say your name on every new night sky cause if what they say is true I chased a rainbow down and my pot of gold is you and i know I'm not easy to love who said loving was easy, it's not easy

Lonely Alone 04:27
You're all alone, in a place you know so well you call home, a place that welcomes you back with open arms, a palce called lonely You were young, gave away your heart, reckless abandon jumped from off on high with fear of scars you end up lonely All Alone, with a picture of that boy you used to know the one that ran away with your heart in tow left you lonely You , you wear, all your loneliness, like a pretty dress in fall the prettiest of all, the broken hearts All alone, with that picture of that boy you used to know, the one that ran away and then came back home but your still lonely. You , you wear, all your loneliness, like a pretty dress in fall the prettiest of all, the broken hearts
7.
There's a whistle that's been blowin' in me there's a whistle that's blowin', a little boy that's growing, who depends on me If you know the way, won't you help me tonight won't you shine your light There's a whistle that's blowin, a piece of me still frozen, would you like your biscuits with tea? There's a whistle that's blowin, but out there past the ocean there's a place still callin' for me If you know the way, won't you help me tonight won't you shine your light
8.
Why did you fall, for me at all when your so beautiful Time passes slow, out here on the lonely road with all these bones in tow, and there's those sticks and stones all those I do's I don't all those ideas I float, out here on the lonely road Watch every sound, won;t you teach me that again I guess I missed it the first go round and it's catching me some how, when I'm out here in a crowd, I feel far less exposed than now, lying here with heart all out keep it safe in your arms tonight hold it close with all your might until that sun does shine, and bring me back home again When are you coming home soon as I can my love, as soon as this wars over

about

"What is home to you" is the bands first full length LP since they released their debut Union Glory 4 years ago. It is also the first record they made together as a band without use of an outside producer. While the record feels a bit darker than previous releases it still possess the glimmer of hope we all need to get through life. The songs pay homage to all the bands influences and styles that have had critics wondering where to classify them for years. Whittled down from approximately 15 tracks to the 8 presented, the band believes this is a collection of songs that tells a story and won't have you reaching for the skip button.
