To tempt the fool into the mine
There goes the snake with antidote

Take the hand
Guide the way
Far away
Find the truth
Always
Always

I'm on my way back home
I'm on my way back home

I see your face inside the smoke
It's hard to scream and nice to choke

Take the hand
Guide the way
Far away
Find the truth
Always
Always

I'm on my way back home
I'm on my way back home

Let's rest a while inside the cave
Don't cry you'll see that we'll be safe

Take the hand
Guide the way
Far away
Find the truth
Always
Always

Take your heart into your hand
Always
Take your heart into your hand
Always

I'm on my way back home
I'm on my way back home

    Great song for a funeral. I'm on way back home. Take the hand, Guide the way, Far Away, Find the truth, Always, Always. Seems like a legit song for a funeral.

    The songs about being away from home for long periods of time. While you're gone you tend to change things about yourself and try new things like drugs, but when it's time to go back home you are back to your comfort zone.

    its all about cooking breakfast, just think about it, bacon, eggs, syrup, coca cola. Heroin, its all there. Just close your eyes and pretend that everything's fine.

    To tempt the fool into the mine,
    Let loose the snake with antidote

    Take the hand,
    Guide the way,
    Far away,
    Find the truth,
    Always | Always

    I'm on my way back home,
    I'm on my way back home

    I see your face inside the smoke,
    It's hard to scream and nice to choke

    Take the hand,
    Guide the way,
    Far away,
    Find the truth,
    Always | Always

    I'm on my way back home,
    I'm on my way back home

    Let's rest awhile inside the cave,
    Don't cry, you'll see that we'll be save

    Take the hand,
    Guide the way,
    Far away,
    Find the truth,
    Always | Always

    Take your heart into you hand,

    Take your heart into your hand,
    Always

    I'm on my way back home,
    I'm on my way back home.
