The fortress is falling, the seed has been sown
And people are building a world of their own
And these are times like we’ve never known.
Are we coming home to something?
Are we coming home coming home?We’ve all done things we’ve lived to regret.
There’s much to forgive but never forget
And the struggle reminds us we’re still human yet.
Are we coming home…etc.

We’ve been brokers of power and seekers of gold
Captives of oil so many left in the cold
And a storm is raging in the depths of the soul.
Are we coming home…etc.

When the wall came down we were saying that day: Oh coming home.
But there’s still walls between us got to clear them away. Oh coming home.
From the cries in the townships to the tanks in the sand oh coming home.
It’s a long road ahead we must all understand. Oh coming home.
And I think there’s a feeling we may be getting on track. Oh coming home.
No future in the past and there’s no turning back. Oh coming home.

The fortress is falling the seed has been sown
And people are building a world of their own
And these are times like we’ve never known.
Are we coming home to something?
Woah are we coming home to something?
Coming home.
