"Long Way Home" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
Leave me out, get away
I gotta go a long way home
Can't see through the trees
Leave me out, get away
Better run fast as I can
From the man, the dirty man, the old man

In my song, run away, fly away
Long way home
Through the fields, the burning fields
Call my name when you knock on the door
Go insane
When you knock on the door in my head
And it's beatin' like a drum

[Chorus]
Tell me
Is it more of the same and
Where can I find it?
Tell me
Is she fighting for air and
Where does she come from?
Tell

Leave me out, get away
I gotta go a long way home
Can't see through the trees
Leave me out, get away
Better run fast as I can
From the man, the dirty man
Run away when he's knocking on the door

[Chorus: x2]

[Repeat: x2]
What's she runnin' from, I really don't know
Keep her runnin', it's a long way home
I hear the music, the songs we know
It's out of time and the beat's too slow

    General CommentThis song is definetly about drugs. Because if you listen to the pace of the song it sounds like an acid trip, The line "When you knock on the door in my head and it's beating like a drum" refers to because when on drugs even the softest door knock can be an exploding sound. "Is there more of the same and where can I find it?"
