Where do you call home?

Is it underneath a sky that won't leave you alone?

If only it was raining water, and not no educated bombs.

Because of some other man's business; some other man's wrongs.

 

And what do you call a friend?

How come the best of them ain't people.

By definition dogs instead.

Lackluster lives of buying shit that won't cry when you're dead.

Too far, too fast, too little, too late they say, ain't it?

 

Do I have it right?

Yeah, that's pretty perfect. But I think it's "Because of some other man's business with some other man's wrongs."

I always thought it was

 

"Cause the sum of a man's business, is some other man's wrongs"

 

I don't get the "not no educated bombs" part, doesn't seem to make sense.

He's saying that it's better to have rain falling on your head, rather than "smart-bombs."

 

He's saying that killing is bad, m'kay?

I dunno, I think 'some other man's business with some other man's wrongs' makes more sense.

 

I interpret it as the notion that we're getting bombed or destroyed or hurt or whatever because someone else was sticking their nose in the morality of someone else.

 

I dunno. I'd like to hear an interpretation of yours. I like the lyrics better, but they just don't seem to make sense in context. "If only it was raining water and not no educated bombs cuz the sum of a man's business is some other man's wrongs." I don't really get it.

 

In fact, how can one person's business be summed up by someone elses wrongs?

Yup, definitely a pun on "smart bombs".

 

I was planning on transcribing this at some point today, and now I don't have to.

I never really though about it all that much, I just considered it meaning that everything that one person had done wrong, had also wronged another person. Like someone in a position of power making decisions, bad ones, and it has wronged another man\men below him.
