"Transmissions From a Lonely Room" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
Miles above your circumstance there's water on your mind.
I've wrestled with convictions and I've settled with the tide.
It's more or less uncertainty but still you play the game.
A pedicure won't change the score, but all of this will fade.

So low, better get on,
Everything's stopped (down).
So slow, better get on,
Everything's slowed (down)

Down.

Take a bath with consecrated water from the shrine
And wash away the mud of all the miles you've left behind.
Triplicates and wedding rings both lethal to obtain
So batten down the credit cards, the devil's in the den.

    General CommentI think it is about him sometimes feeling alone while dealing with his heroin addictions.

    General CommentAmazing song, best on Shangri-La Dee Da in my opinion. Definitely seems to be Scott talking about facing his addiction and trying to put it in the past and move on. I would bet the "lonely room" he is referring to is being in jail...cuz he was locked up for awhile before this album came out.
