Just when you make your way back home
I find some time to be alone
I go to see the place once more
Just like a thousand nights before

I climb the stage again this night
Cause the place seems still alive
When the smoke is going down
This is the place where I belong

I really love to turn you on
I've got your sound still in my ears
While your traces disappear
I climb the stage again this night

Cause the place seems still alive
When the smoke is going down
I climb the stage again this night
Cause the place seems still alive

When the smoke is going down
When the smoke is going down
When the smoke is going down

    General Commentactually, when Daron performed this song, he only sung the first 4 lines. i just thought i'd add the rest of the lines for good measure. heard from: SOAD's Lowlands Performance (at 9 min and 45 sec).

    General CommentWell if he only does the first four lines then the song is about his friend goes away and then he goes to his little place where he feels good and happy.

    General CommentI think he sings this song in their Big Day Out thing. (Toxicity, at the begining. But I'm not sure.)
