Now when I was born, Dad said to me son you must never fear
Things people say, things that they do, things that they never hear
They can be so unkind, they can poison your mind
Someday you might end up like me

All of his plans, all of his schemes, meant to enlighten me
Searching for storms and weather balloons,
That never frightened me
Till he took to the air on a wing and a prayer
and he told the whole world it was me

Over the hills and trees,
Oh tell me, please this gust of wind won't disappear
Further with every mile and all the while
I can see my house from here

See them down there running around like their ant hill was just kicked in
The media scurry like rats through the town in a race they will never win
But up here I'm free, no one can get to me
unless these old rafters cave in

Then everyone will see
Oh please tell me that gravity won't interfere
Above this garage floor and through the door
I can see my house from here

Mom starts to scream, Dad starts to shout
How long will it take till they both figure out?
I'm through with this game I don't want to play
Please let this stupid balloon drift away
Just lift me up, off of the ground
Spin like a big floating merry-go- round
Flashing red lights following me
Sirens that seem like a calliope
Now copters and cameras and satellites beam
the images over an internet stream
They told the authorities I was up there
till it gently touched down without moments to spare

I don't want to be on TV
I don't want Wolf Blitzer to interview me
The story was flimsy and not very clear
I was in the garage, I see my house from here
