The format you need (standard longitude, latitude) can be obtained by converting the current Reference System to World Geodetic System whose identifier (SRID) is 4326. In order to do so, use the function st_transform(way, 4326) (returns a Geometry). So, for example, in a query similar to yours it would be: SELECT st_asText(st_transform(way, 4326)) FROM ...
