about

This is a send off song. Picture a bunch of people around a camp fire on their last night before they have to go on their own ways, back to the real world with jobs, mortgages, and traffic. This song is a reminder to take the world with a saltshaker's worth of grains.

lyrics

Pack your bags, we're heading home tonight!
Pack your bags, we're heading home tonight!
Pick up your coat, and stuff your throat,
With frankincense and myrrh, and gold.
Pack your bags, we're heading home tonight!

Don't you tell me
I'm past my expiry!
Pack your bags, we're heading home tonight!

Start a fire, and walk away with pride!
Start a fire, and walk away with pride!
Wipe your hands of the suit and sand.
Realize you're beyond command.
Start a fire, and walk away with pride!

Don't you tell me
I'm done one-fifth century!
Start a fire, and walk away with pride!

Look ahead! The moon is on the rise!
Look ahead! The moon is on the rise!
Walk on your way, till the break of day.
Let that compass guide the way.
Look ahead! The moon is on the rise!

Don't you tell me
Your heart has atrophied!
Look ahead! The moon is on the rise!
