Take Me Home is a song from Hollywood Undead's fourth album, Day of the Dead.

Background

Charlie Scene spoke to Artist Direct about the track. "I listen to a lot of country and western music. It's got that old-school Spaghetti Western vibe. Think of the soundtrack to Django Unchained. I wanted to make a song that had a little bit of that in it. It started at my house trying to put a hint of a Spaghetti Western in a Hollywood Undead song. Lyrically, that's the point of view of an old cowboy. It's hard to fit an old Western vibe with Hollywood Undead. It's through the eyes of Clint Eastwood."

Lyrics

Charlie Scene: (Whoa, whoa)

Danny: I don't believe in all your demons anymore
It's hard to see with any reason from before
I lie awake and face these shadows in the night
I see the truth through crimson eyes
(Take me home)

Charlie Scene: Take me home where the restless go
Reckless to the day I rest my bones
There's no use trying to save my soul
There's no use trying to save my soul

Take me home where the restless go
Reckless to the day I rest my bones
There's no use trying to save my soul
There's no use trying to save my soul

(Whoa, whoa)
Charlie Scene and Danny: There's no use trying to save my soul

Charlie Scene: These angels burn with an eternal sympathy
Don't say a word until you've heard their symphony
I lied awake creating shadows in the night
I see the truth through crimson eyes
Danny: (Take me home)

Charlie Scene: Take me home where the restless go
Reckless to the day I rest my bones
There's no use trying to save my soul
There's no use trying to save my soul

Take me home where the restless go
Reckless to the day I rest my bones
There's no use trying to save my soul
There's no use trying to save my soul

(Whoa, whoa)
Charlie Scene and Danny: There's no use trying to save my soul
Charlie Scene: (Whoa, whoa)
Charlie Scene and Danny: There's no use trying to save my soul

Danny: Got my cards lined up in a row
Up in flames and away we go
Lost my name but it's etched in stone
Take me home where the cold wind blows
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down
Wide awake so don't make a sound
Ain't no way you can break me down
No one's safe, no escaping now

Charlie Scene: Take me home where the restless go
Reckless to the day I rest my bones
There's no use trying to save my soul
There's no use trying to save my soul

Take me home where the restless go
Reckless to the day I rest my bones
There's no use trying to save my soul
There's no use trying to save my soul

(Whoa, whoa)
Charlie Scene and Danny: There's no use trying to save my soul
There's no use trying to save my soul
There's no use trying to save my soul
There's no use trying to save my soul
