I have had enough product placement ads try'n' to sell me stuff

Contradicting cherished truths

All my baggage beside the road

Like a fog in the morning sun

When we come home

Now my fears - they've all gone away
Like the mist on a summers day
Makes me smile as I see your face
Thanks for all the love you gave

Recreation when we come home
Re-creation who will you be?
New destination where will you go?
