The boy's gone. the boy's gone home.

What will happen to a face in the crowd when it finally gets too crowded.
And will happen to the origins of sound after all the sounds have sounded
Well I hope I never have to see that day but by God I know it's headed our way
So I better be happy now that the boy's going home. the boy's gone home.

And what becomes of a day for those who rage against it
And who will sum op the phrase for all left standing around in it

Well I suppose we'll all make our judgement call
We'll walk it alone, stand up tall, then march to the fall
So we better be happy now that we'll all go home.

Be so happy with the way you are
Be so happy that you made it this far
Go on be happy now. please be happy now

Because this is something else
This is something else

I tried to live my life and live it so well
But when it's all over is it heaven or is it hell
I better be happy now that no one can tell, nobody knows
I'm gonna be happy with the way that I am
I'm gonna be happy with all that I stand for
I'm gonna be happy now because the boy's going home.

The boy's gone home.

    this song meaning speaks to going on after a loss of a loved one...I know because my boy is gone. The meaning of this song became clear after the death of my precious companion pug dog...the loss is deep and profound. Every time I hear this song I get flooded with emotions...but Jason sings it so cool...like he has it all figured out and mastered. Death is final...you can try to rage against it...but really the message is life is for the living and make the best of yours.

    Realize that the good things don't last forever... and that through all the trials and tears and grinding teeth you still might not win... but still know that even when we don't get what we want, we still become better people... the bright side is there, even in the darkest times.
