When he was born
The doc said, �What's this?
He's much too small
It's like he's weightless�

When he turned 6
They ran some tests
They said it's for science
It's patriotic

Oh let's send him where no one else has gone
After all he cannot speak or walk
Let's send him at the moon
He'll do circles around the sun

When he was 12
The time had come then
And with his eyes
He said he loved them

In came the suits
In came the government
She stood and cried
She could not keep him

Oh let's send him where no one else has gone
After all he cannot speak or walk
Let's send him at the moon
Do circles around the sun

Well he came back, yeah he came back
He came back with a smile as big as the whole world
The doctors were shocked by his vital signs
She said, �Would you like to come home now?�

Oh let's send him where no one else has gone
After all he cannot speak or walk
Let's send him at the moon
Do circles around the sun

    Song MeaningAccording to Chad, this song is about a friend of the bands named Larry. Larry was born with a medical condition where he couldn't speak or walk. Apparently, the government took Larry from his family to send him on a mission to space at the objection of his mother. Little did they know that Larry was an adrenaline junkie and expressed his love for his journey with his eyes.

    My InterpretationThis song is about a boy who was born with a medical condition. The doctors said he was much too small. When an animal is born under-weight, there is a sign that it won't last past adolescence. The human boy was given tests when he was six. The government came, saying we need to operate on him, and the mother cried since she couldn't do anything about it. He came back and could smile. (I don't know whether anything had changed) but his mother was so happy and proud.
