“Way Home” is describing the voyage of a prisoner on the way to his family.
At the beginning he runs, because he wants to get back home fast. (String arpeggios)
As he arrived the majestic forest he looks up in the sky and sees some passing clouds. (Winds and high strings)
His legs are getting tired more an more (Bass).
Following a small litte river (Piccolo Flutes) he has finally passed the forest and arrives at the mountains. (Strings rising)
He is sad because the way is still too long (Piano). He argues with himself. (Choir)
About to surrender he suddenly sees the valley where he lives in. (Brass is rising)
Encouraged to see his family again he gets faster and runs but he is to weak.
He dies just in the arms of his wife. You hear his final hearbeats (Deep Bass)
