Off He Goes Lyrics

Know a man, his face seems pulled and tense
Like he's riding on a motorbike in the strongest winds
So I approach with tact, suggest that he should relax
But he's always moving much too fast

Said he'll see me on the flipside of this trip he's taken for a ride
He's been taking too much on
There he goes with his perfectly unkept clothes, there he goes

He's yet to come back, but I've seen his picture
It doesn't look the same up on the rack, we go way back

And I wonder about his insides
It's like his thoughts are too big for his size
He's been taken where? Where, I don't know
Off he goes with his perfectly unkept hope, there he goes

And now I rub my eyes, for he has returned
Seems my preconceptions are what should've been burned
For he still smiles, and he's still strong
Nothing's changed but the surrounding bullshit that has grown

And now he's home and we're laughing like we always did
My same old, same old friend

Until a quarter-to-ten, I saw the strain creep in
He seems distracted and I know just what is going to happen next

Before his first step... he is off again
