"The Way Home!" as written by and Wim Van Gelder....
The way home
Lined with all the things that you have learned.
The way home...
The lights are on, but we're still getting burned.
Show to me, The way I found the grey lines honed.

'Cause it's so hollow now
Show's over now

The way I'm
Lighting all the faces you have turned.
The way is high.
Glad to know the greatest thing I knew...
I always knew.

So hollow now
Show's over now...
And I've wasted time on daylight...
I won't be knocked down,

Show the way. (I've only time now)
I won't be shown the way home
I've always knew...

So hollow now
Show's over now
And I've wasted time on daylight, I'm sorry
And I've wasted time on daylight, I'm sorry

    General CommentDidn't he use the phrase "grey lines" before in Dead Head? Is there anything to that?

    General CommentYeah, the line in deadhead is "Now the rain it comes, the rain it blurs the grey line
    ...the grey line...the Greyhound home".

    I love that line so much, it conveys such a heavy sense of depression and movement in so few words. Anyone who ever took a long depressing bus trip home (or far away from home)can relate to this I think. And the reference definitely adds another layer to this song for me.

    I love this song, and I love Devin's music so much. He just keeps getting better. I didn't think much of Addicted at first (loved the 1st track, hated Bend it Like Bender), but over a year later, I have this song (The Way Home) on repeat at the moment. So many of Dev's greatest tracks are 'growers' for me. It's like my brain is physically incapable of realising how good certain songs are for at least a year :p
