Long Way Down Lyrics

I've been fucking around while you've been saving the world
I've been out of my mind
I've been dreaming things and scheming things
I've been smoking the poison
You've been slinging your anecdotes
I've been fucking around while you were saving the world
From nothing

The end, the end
Things will never go away
In the end, the end
Things will never go

So take it in, don't hold your breath
The bottom's all I found
We can't get higher than we get
On the long way down

On the long way down
On the long way down

Burning night in my eyes, blinding me from the truth
If there's a shadow in me
The dark is a tidal force inside of you
Taking shots at communion
Getting drunk on your antidote
I'll save you a seat next to me down below

The end, the end
Everyone will go away
In the end, the end
Everything will go

So take it in, don't hold your breath
The bottom's all I found
We can't get higher than we get
On the long way down On the long way down
On the long way down

Oh, ooh, oh, oh, ooh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, ooh, oh, oh, ooh, oh, oh, oh

On the long way down
On the long way down, down, down
So take it in, don't hold your breath
The bottom's all I found
We can't get higher than we get
On the long way down

On the long way down
On the long way down

So take it in, don't hold your breath
The bottom's all I found
We can't get higher than we get
On the long way down

On the long way down
On the long way down

Thoughts & Meanings

In this song he is talking to his drug dealer " ive been smoking the poison, youve been slinging the antidote " " ive been fucking around while youve been saving the world from nothing " its more to exsplain but too much to type but u got the idea

The song is about how in the end, whatever you do in life doesn't matter, so you should enjoy life, drink the "poison" which could be being yourself, instead of the "antidote," which could be conforming to the norms of society. It also speaks about how, in the end, we will all suffer the fate of death.

When he says 'you' in the song, he's talking about a Christian, and he's explaining how what they're doing is useless- hence the phrase "I've been fucking around while you've been saving the world, from nothing"-and he's talking about how he's going to hell, and they will too- hence the phrase " I'll save you a seat next too me down below".

A herion addict life.

I think it has something to do with drugs.
