Lyrics Lounge: Interpreting Incognito's "Ain't it Time"

Ain’t it Time Where along the line did you get off the track Thinking the life you’re living is where it’s at Don’t you feel discontent inside There’s something about you life just cannot hide They say home is where your heart is But I say it’s in your peace of mind If you go…
