"Exodus 04" as written by Hikaru Utada and Timothy Z Mosley....
With you these streets are heaven
Now home feel so foreign
They told me I was mistaken, infatuated
And I was afraid to trust my hunches
Now I am ready

Daddy don't be mad that I'm leaving
Please let me worry about me
Mama don't you worry about me
This is my story

Through mountains high and valleys low
The ocean, through the desert, snow
We'll say goodbye to the friends we know
This is our Exodus '04

Through traffic jams in Tokyo
New music on the radio
We'll say goodbye to the world we know
This is our Exodus '04

Landscapes keep changing
History teaches something
I know I could be mistaken, but my heart has spoken
I cannot redirect my feelings
The waves have parted

Daddy don't be mad that I'm leaving
Please let me worry about me
Mama don't you worry about me
This is my story

Through mountains high and valleys low
The ocean, through the desert, snow
We'll say goodbye to the friends we know
This is our Exodus '04

Through traffic jams in Tokyo
New music on the radio
We'll say goodbye to the world we know
This is our Exodus '04

I'm listening to a music never ending
My baby don't you know I'll never let you down
You've opened me to so many different endings
But baby I know that you'll always be around

Through mountains high and valleys low
The ocean, through the desert, snow
We'll say goodbye to the friends we know
This is our Exodus '04

Through traffic jams in Tokyo
New music on the radio
We'll say goodbye to the world we know
This is our Exodus '04

    General CommentI think this is about leaving the Place you grew up in or lived several years of your life. Exodus (= Removal). SO she is leaving her Home where she lived with her Parents and tells them not to worry cause she wants to "worry about herself". :D

    My InterpretationThis song is about a young woman moving out of her parent's house for the first time to live with her boyfriend (this is OUR exodus). Her parents are concerned that she's not ready or that he isn't right for her but she is asking them to trust her to take care of herself now and not to worry too much.
    This is one of my favorite songs from Utada and the best song on the album; there's lots of imagery and the song has a strong hip-hop undercurrent.
