"Back Home" as written by and Ronald Ward....
When she walks into the room
They look up to see her face
All the glitter falls on her
And the room's her stage

Don't you think you've had enough?
Do the claws make sores?
Take my hand and come away
And I'll take you home

I won't turn around
Can't be afraid
Taking you all the way back home
Innocence gone
Can't be the same
Taking you all the way back home

Back home

Will the world still be the same
Even if you're gone
When the pillers start to fade
And the room's just walls

Don't you think you've had enough?
Do the claws make sores?
Take my hand and come away
And I'll take you home

I won't turn around
Can't be afraid
Taking you all the way back home
Innocence gone
Can't be the same
Taking you all the way

All the way
All the way

Don't you think you've had enough?
What's the gun there for?
Take my hand and fly away
And I'll take you home

Don't you think you've had enough?
What's the gun there for?
Take my hand and come away
And I'll take you

Don't turn around
Can't be afraid
Take you all the way back home
Innocence gone
Can't be the same
Take you all the way

I'll take you all the way
I'll take you all the way back
I'll take you all the way
I'll take you all the way
(Back home)

I'll take you all the way
(Back home)
I'll take you all the way
(Back home)
I'll take you all the way
(Back home)
I'll take you all the way
Home

    General CommentI love this song, but I'm not totally sure of its meaning.

    I read somewhere that it was about a girl who was involved with prositution.. ("Don't you think you've had enough? Do their claws make sores? Take my hand and come away, and I'll take you home") who Scooter cared about. Maybe she felt as if there was nothing left for her, and was considering killing herself ("Whats the gun there for?").

    I don't know if that's right. I guess it would make sense, though. I think Scooter wrote things about most of his songs, sort of explaining them in a way... somewhere? Maybe I'm wrong.

    Anyway, this is an awesome song. I love the music at the end of it (the "I'll take you all the way, I'll take you all the way back, I'll take you all the way, I'll take you all the way back home" part) for some odd reason. :)

    General CommentAnother very nice song by Cold. The meaning to me is very similar to euphemystic's interpretation on the prostitution / suicide part. I think that the singer is trying to help a girl who is caught up in something that is unsafe and popular (drinking, drugs etc). Scooter's determination to help this person is seen in these lines:

    I won't turn around
    Can't be afraid
    Taking you all the way back home

    General CommentIt's about some girl in the music biz who gets caught up in all the glamour of it, and can't let go, and she falls. And scooter's the one taking her home.

    General CommentChilling song. I assumed it was about a girl who met a guy, went back to his place for the night. But he ended up beating her, and leaving her on the street. Scooter finds her and takes her home.

    General Commenti think its about a girl who was completely used by a guy. and another guy comes along and he knows this but he loves her anyways. she keeps living this unsefe life and keeps hurting herself (kinda like a celebrity....."When she walked into the room
    They look up to see her face All the glitter falls on her And the room's her stage") and this guys just watches her do thid to herself and he keeps trying to take her back home to a place where she's safe or maybe it's a like state of mind like back to the way she used to be. he keeps trying to tell her she's not supposed to live like this- "don't u think you've had enough" and 'do their claws make sores"
    it's a very powerful song

    General Commentactually i see several meanings to it, too much too list but to name a few (when she walked into her room, they looked up to her face), which brings up the stage. ("don't you think you've got enough") a man talking too her, & (i won't turn around, can't be afraid, i'm taking you all the way back home), meaning that he (the guy) can't live in fears with the woman
