"Farther Down" as written by and Christopher Allen Tyler Glenn....
I've been searching for days now
I've found something I lost
On a holy roller channel asking me what's the cost

On a couch in a cold room
Pouring salt in my wounds
I'm a mistake faking truth holding liar's balloons

Make me fly for something more
You've been asleep for days now,
Living inside your dreams
You know that ain't no way to live or to handle such things

I wanna shake up your system
I wanna rattle your bones
I wanna take you to the stars
And then I'll leave you alone

I would meet you anywhere, but Ive been farther down
I saw you somewhere farther down,
Did I expect it?

Now I'm overcome with fear
Mama get me out of here
I've gone farther down than I ever wanna go.

Lighting up the horizon,
To the city sky-lights
In a faded aspiration only left in our minds
Let us shake up the system,
Lets go and rattle their frames
Lets take the highest road away and avoid these trappings

I would meet you anywhere, but Ive been farther down
I saw you somewhere farther down
Did I expect it?
Now I'm overcome with fear
Mama get me out of here
Ive gone farther down than I wanna go

We stood out in the cold
And your eyes, they ate my soul
Begged me to come back down,
they begged me to come back down
Then the ground ate my legs, so I looked up to the sky and said
I don't wanna go back down
Oh Ive been so far down
Heaven help me, heaven help me for the way I've been.

Farther down
Did I expect it?
Now I'm overcome with fear
Mama get me out of here

I've gone farther down than I ever, than I ever wanna go
Farther down, I saw you somewhere
Farther down
Did I expect it
Now I'm overcome with fear
Mama get me out, mama get me out of here.

    My InterpretationSounds like the singer realized someone he was in a relationship was bringing him down spiritually and he's tempted to go back down to her level. He's asking for help to not go back there but also wishes he could bring her "up" to where he is. Great song.
