"Long Way Down" as written by and John Rzeznik....
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 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.
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.

    General Commenti disagree...name was soft rock, adult alternative, but NOT quite pop at all...a boy named goo and albums before it are more "grungey" than their latter albums but their more recent albums are simply MAINSTREAMED they're not pop at all... genres describing their music overall would include hard rock, mainstream rock, adult alternative, and modern rock..no pop involved...............................

    i think this song is about a girl that left him for someone/somthing else and then she realized she was worse off than ever and wants to come back to him ...
    "Did they push you out did they throw you away?
    Touch me now and I don't care."

    ...and even though he wants her back...
    "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."

    ...he's still hurts because she left him and he dosen't want her to hurt him again...
    "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.
    I never put you down, I never pushed you away.
    Take another piece of me.
    Give my mind a new disease."
