Homesick Hopes - Lyrics by Pinhead Gunpowder


Lyrics
No one wants to hear his story
A
Nother boring kid in town again
Who stares at photograpghs
Of far away friends
Frustrated, he can't think clear
His aspirations seem sincere but howcan he make them all work out
Homesick hopes and inside jokes
They're all taking him away
He can't find a reason why
A reason to stay
It's been too long a lull and
All the self pity is getting dull today
He can't find another way
Sitting down with his final mistake
Thinking of another fake smile tonight
He's waiting for someone for someone to save his life
He got a letter today
Steve moved to Knoxville'
Another reason to stay
