bart23 I found this during a point in my life where my world was turned upside down and inside out. I hit middle age, the generating station I worked at was shuttered by the City of Chicago, my ex left me and a close friend committed suicide.
On September 14th, 2012 I listened to this as I watched the sun come up over the Sanitary and Ship Canal as Chicago woke up, slowly.
I had the same thoughts many in my position would.
Listening to this, that day, helped me find something inside to keep going. Favorite track: Finding Home (Farewell Version).

I won't return So don't wait for me Cuz I won't find peace Until I find home I ain't never walk a mile in nobody else's shoes I don't really know why some do the things they do But I can understand what so many have been through I can feel the urge to belong to something new And I don't want to listen to another sad story Don't want to be deceived with tales of false glory And all these legends in they own mind bore me I'm not distracted by the glitz that's before me I can see the discontent that plagues you I can feel the stress that moves to break you I can sense the dread that overtakes you And I can hear the chains that bind and claim you But something isn't right with the hamster on the wheel Day has turned to night now the servant won't kneel Peasants want to fight, they refusing to yield What the devil's going on, can anyone reveal Though I don't have the faintest idea why people even here I don't believe it has to do with salaries per year I don't believe humanity is floating on a sphere So that you can wait to live until retirement appears And I'm just talking straight as I can steer Society a bunch of crazy bastards over here So puppets and your masters you can find me over there Where I'll be patient waiting for your madness to clear I won't return So don't wait for me Cuz I won't find peace Until I find home I ain't never had to lose what I got But everything I have is from refusing to stop And I am not a fool though I duel with a fox I remain immune to the ruse that he plot And I'm one confused by the sight of a loved one remain in estranged from their life When a husband puts his hands to his wife Though he feels his own worth slip with every strike And a truth will incite so I'm told And the wars in my sight will grow old And it's painful reflects on my soul But my high hopes scream to an empty sky No this not a lullaby, ya'll follow while I go To a world full of men void of holes To a place where MP's don't patrol And to a time where no values are sold There's no regime change cuz they conquer by divide And the heroes of our day have died and washed up in the tide Those who prayed for change have found their hope got left behind Cuz money's greener than that grass that's on the other side So I ride the hate of men Let 'em play pretend Push and shove and when they let their killing games begin Take a step outside and watch without it getting in And look to find a home that I can settle here within I won't return So don't wait for me Cuz I won't find peace Until I find home
