Happy Sunday everyone. I think that this song is perfect for today, given that Sunday is the day many religious types go to church. On “Home,” Matt Nye tries to figure out where he belongs in this shifty world of ours. We’ve got false prophets and liars by the boatload and Nye doesn’t want anything to do with either.
I like this one because of its honesty about religion (and those who twist religion to fit their own goals) and trying to finding an ounce of peace in a tumultuous world. On top of that, it’s lyrically-impressive and continues some of the vibes Nye presented on “Alan Arkin.” Specifically, he keeps the “I’m a gangsta like my granddad” mindset and doesn’t give a damn about who he may offend with this one.
He’s speaking truths about his life and the lives of others around him. Plus that third verse? It’s a thing of beauty and speaks on his growth as a person and a creative, touching on his bit part in Iron Man 3 and the way that the world works. Some of us would rather give visions to the so-called superheroes than think about the common man and Nye states, in so many words, that this sort of thinking is detrimental. Check out the song below and support dope music in all its forms.
