Son listen close
Cause you are going on a trip
You’ve got to leave the house, leave the dog
Cause you are leaving really quick

Son listen close
Take good care of mom and sis
As the man of the house, you’ve got to be brave,
it all comes down to this

Off he goes

Look at the life we’ve build
Look at the land we own
Look at our kids that play
They run they unwind
Think of the cash we burn
Of birthday wishes we never knew we had
about the last thought
That troubled your mind

Off he goes,
The little boy goes on a quest
Don’t be scared mom we’re gonna be fine
Daddy said so, and he knows best

It should be over soon
the waves will come but they will go
Don’t mind the crying people, mom
Cause they don’t know what daddy knows

Off he goes

Look at the life we’ve build
Look at the land we own
Look at our kids that play
They run they unwind
Think of the cash we burn
Of birthday wishes we never knew we had
about the last thought
That troubled your mind

He leaves all he’s ever known
At an age that he had to outgrow
Off he goes
To better life has he been told
To hold his breath the waters cold

Now look at his tiny hands
His feet stuck in the sand
Look at his lifeless face
Gentle and kind
Think of the life he knew
Think of the all the dreams he might have had
Think about the last thought
that troubled his mind
