Far Away From Home

I am far away from home
If my father sees what I see he will scream
I have seen things
Trains that run on car roads, hmm
Boxes that carry people up tall buildings in seconds, hmm
Funny food with fancy names, hmm
Their streets are not on talking terms with litter, hmm
Their cities are as colourful as my childhood dreams, hmm
Their taxi drivers do not bargain, hmm
The light never goes off, hmm
The water does not stop flowing o, hmm
The showers even flow with hot water, hmm
My neck aches from carrying my gossip eyes
That can’t stop looking at the plenty beautiful girls, hmm.

I am far away from home
If my mother sees what I see she will scream
I have seen things
Lovers licking each other’s lips in public, hmm
Men puffing out smoke from their noses like wooden fire, hmm
Young people swallowing beer like drains, hmm
Though they have so much paper
Some use their own skin for writing and drawing things, hmm
The weather is as cold as a witch’s heart, hmm
Everybody seems to be in a hurry to I don’t know where, hmm
When you see them dance, you would think they are daring you to a fight,
To some music that is like battle cries, hmm.
