Lyrics
:

Well, back in '75
When the kid was on the line
He felt no pain
'Cause there was none
He would bend in the wind
Take in anything
'Like sniffin' roses
And it was alright
Until he fell
And cut his hand
He just could not understand
He'd run away
Blame pretense
For defence
Or plain innocence

Said it's alright
The harder it fights
I'm one step closer to home
The deeper it bites
I'm one step closer to home
You can tie my hands
You can whip my back
I can't give nothing
'Till the sky turns black
I may get lost

But I'm ONE STEP CLOSER TO HOME

Oh yeah he ran
Hitched, rides
Travelled light
Left his bags behind
Said he'd lost them
He said it's O.K.
I get money and smile
From place to place
They don't mind
I've had the heads of business men 
And I just gave them back again
I've got no need
For device, disguise
Or for compromise

And the more that I sweat
I'm one step closer to home
The tougher it gets
I'm one step closer to home
You can tie my hands
You can whip my back
I can't give nothing
'Til the sky turns black
I may get lost
I'm ONE STEP CLOSER TO HOME

Ain't no need for this no more
Surely you can help me out
She said, I know a lot of people just like you
You've got everything to live for and nothing to lose
So break it all down
Smash it all up
I said, tear it down
And build it up

And the tougher it gets
I'm one step closer to home
And the deeper it gets
I'm one step closer to home
The harder it fights
The deeper it bites
The tougher it gets
The more that I sweat

You can tie my hands..
