lyrics

Tried so hard to remember
The way it used to be
Always running and hiding
Away from authority

Pack up all your belongings
Won't you come with me
With his brothers and sisters
He'll control this destiny

Well he made that trip
He's not going back
He kinda likes it here
Where his family's at

Now somebody else is walking down the road
For the very same reason
Seems so close you can touch it
Oh they shoot you down
When you think about leaving

So once you make your decision
There is no turning back
Once you make a decision boy
Tell you that's where its at

Well he made that trip
He's not going back
He kinda likes it here
Where his family's at

Still he was a bit younger
Than he was before
Some one coming down the hallway
And he up, knock on the door

So pack up all your belongings
Won't you come with me
With his brothers and sister
He'll control this destiny

Well he made that trip
He's not going back
He kinda likes it here
Where his family's at
