What does this statement mean by "their lives back on track"?
Anyone paraphrase it for me?
For now, victims from the mud volcano are organizing demonstrations to demand their compensation money. For them, it is the only way to get new land, new homes, and their lives back on track.

To get someone's life back on track is to get it back to a reasonable standard following some kind of incident.
In this case, the volcano is the incident.
Consider it in terms of a train. If a train comes off the tracks (derails), it needs to be put back on the track to move again.

in this case, sounds like the mud volcano has ruined there lives, and to get them back on track means to get their lives back to how they were living before anything went wrong.

"their lives back on track"
Getting "back on track", means to return to normal. Return to the way their life was before they were victims.
So this sentence would be- For them, it is the only way to get new land, new homes, and return to the life they had before they were victims.
