If We Call This Home

if we call this Home, 

if we call this Home, 

it can not be alone

if we call this Home

 

there’s a Mountain in the City that many try to climb

and they’ll push you and shove you, ‘fore they ever stand in line. 

 

all the shapes and all the sizes of People young and old

i like to think they know the difference ‘tween 24 carat and Fools Gold

 

if we call this Home, 

if we call this Home, 

it can not be alone

if we call this Home

 

there’s a City in the desert from where the prophets hail

and we send them all our guns so that War will never fail.

 

beautiful Children, on each side of a wall

you know that when they are born there ain’t no difference at all

 

if we call this Home, 

if we call this Home, 

it can not be alone

if we call this Home

 

Brothers and Sisters with whom I was raised

are treated so different as we walk through the day

 

If we stopped to listen to more than ourselves, 

our families would grow and so would our health

 

and then when we’re standing, near to our ends

our Children would see that at least we had Friends. 

 

if we call this Home, 

if we call this Home, 

it can not be alone

if we call this Home
