Lyrics

I swear I must be dreaming
I think I’ve seen this film before
I was so tired of my black and white world
I craved what Technicolor had in store
I guess I should have seen those funnel clouds coming
I should have taught my dog some rules
Instead of tripping down the road to salvation
With the heartless, the coward and the fool

Now there’s little people and great big suckers
Telling me which path I should take
To where they see the world through greed-coloured glasses
And the oracle will serve up my fate
Once I wished myself over the rainbow
Ah, but dreams can be so cruel
Now I’m tripping down the road to salvation
With the heartless, the coward and the fool, oh my
The heartless, the coward and the fool

And there’s no place like home (thank God)
You think there’s no place like home?
You can change all the names,
The characters stay the same
Ah, there’s no place like home

Here, each direction has its own witch
And the monkeys all have wings
But that big scary head is just a failed circus artist
Hiding behind a curtain and pulling some strings
You can’t run away forever
And when you’re ready, your heart holds the tools
So say goodbye to that road of salvation
And the heartless, the coward and the fool

Yeah, there’s no place like home (Blessed Be)
You think there’s no place like home?
You can change all the names,
The characters stay the same
Ah, there’s no place like home

Yeah, there’s no place like home (ommm)
You think there’s no place like home?
Well, you can change all the names,
But the characters stay the same
Ah, there’s no place like home

I learned more on my travels than I could by following the rules
I can’t regret that road to salvation
Or the heartless, the coward and the fool, oh my
The heartless, the coward and the fool
