This house is a sanctuary.
An oasis in an angry world.
It's walls embrace our family.
The foundations support our souls.
The nights at home are extraordinary
In their simplicity and their calm
As happy as we could wish for this is
As close to peace as we've come
And the state of things outside
Is something we can just ignore
Why should we get involved
Why should we ever leave our home
Our home is our oasis in life
Our home is our oasis of love
This world is a mortuary
In which we all are bound
By Choice or force or simply living
This race is a pointless ferry
A dangerous and lovely ride
Throughout all of our lives we carry
The reasons we never arrive
