What a song of defiance! Damn right I can (go home). You can if you are referring to driving yourself after work to the place where you sleep everynight. You know, the house or apartment that you own/rent. Your belongings are there, your wife/girlfriend/kids/pets perhaps. “O-OH….I see.” NO, you don’t see. ‘Cuz that’s not what I’m talking about here.
This video was shot about 15 miles north of where I now sit typing whatever the hell turns up on this page. A depressing thought in actuality since I am approximately 1, 250 miles from my “home” of origin and where I spent the first decades of my life. “O-OH…I see.” No, no I don’t think you do see. ‘Cuz that’s not what I’m talking about. Alright, listen. Pull up that chair, there over there and let’s see if I can make this simple. A challenge for sure as clarks are known to have that shit backwards. “What shit?”. The shit of clarks having diffiulty with the “simple” things in life and the difficult, holy shit stuff? That seems to come easy. Like in, “ah…, never gave it any thought man, just sort of did it.” What in blazes is that all about?
What is it all about indeed. A clark could drive himself/herself crazy dwelling on that one too much. The “simple” thing here is finding the place within oneself that feels like home. The good place. The place you can go and know who you are, what you are. Don’t read me, read the damn lyrics:
“Doesn’t matter where you are, Doesn’t matter where you go, if its a million miles away or just a mile up the road, take it in, take it with you when you go
who says you can’t go home”.
