Oh here you are
There's nothing left to say
You're not supposed to be that way
Did they push you out
Did they throw you away?

Touch me now and I don't care
When you take me I'm not there
Almost human, but I'll never be the same

Long way down
I don't think I'll make it on my own (long way down)
I don't want to live in here alone (long way down)
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own

I never put you down, I never pushed you away
You're not supposed to be that way
And anything you want, there's nothing I could say

Is there anything to feel? Is it pain that makes you real?
Cut me off before it kills me

Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own
Long way down, I don't want to live in here alone
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own

I never put you down, I never pushed you away
Take another piece of me
Give my mind a new disease
And the black and white world never fades to gray

Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own
Long way down, I don't want to live in here alone
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own

    General Commentanyway, back to the song meaning...

    i think it's about drugs...think about the title "long way down"...
    and then there's "is it pain that makes you real? cut me off before it kills me"

    i think it has to be referring to drugs of some sort...although i know nothing about the band's history...
