This is no different from my home, but my home is where I'm from
You know that I cannot get done the things that I want
When I am home
And there is no difference in a home, it's only a matter space
Between the lines of your own mind, and the crosses you bear
Within your heart
Oh there is no point

And time can only tell
The freedom that makes us well
It's on the tip of my tongue
Oh, yr nose is red
Only in the dark
Oh, there is no point
Yes, there is no point

And they ask the children to go around, to walk straight lines when downtown
And the despair that leads our streets is only once
But it cannot be beat
And here you are and I am now, in a town that's just dragging me down
You spend your whole god damn life just to build it up, but only to shift
Your way down the fall
Oh, there is no point

And everyone and everything is true
In what they say and do
So, who am I to judge
Oh, but I will look
And I'll tell you
Oh, there is no point
Yes, there is no point

Some say the open-ended endlessness of ours
Yeah, it's our rearview mirror looking back at us

And some people have the same feeling, that there is something more to a home
And all of this conceitedness is, it's where we go
So, lay down and stay
Drink your nights away
Oh, there is no point
Yes, there is no point
