My name is Jonas
I'm carrying the wheel
Thanks for all you've shown us
But this is how we feel

Come sit next to me
Pour yourself some tea
Just like grandma made
When we couldn't find sleep
Things were better then
Once but never again
We've all left the den
Let me tell you 'bout it

The choo-choo train left right on time
A ticket cost only your mind
The driver said "Hey man, we go all the way,"
Of course we were willing to pay

My name is Wepeel
Gotta box full of your toys
They're fresh out of batteries
But they're still makin' noise, makin' noise

Tell me what to do
Now the tank is dry
Now this wheel is flat
And you know what else?
Guess what I received
In the mail today
Words of deep concern
From my little brother

The building's not goin' as he planned
The foreman has injured his hand
The dozer will not clear a path
The driver swears he learned his math

The workers are going home
The workers are going home
The workers are going home
The workers are going home

The workers are going home
The workers are going home
The workers are going home
Yeah, yeah yeah!

My name is Jonas

    My InterpretationI agree that this is about growing up, he says many things to point to this.

    "I gotta box full of your toys, They're fresh out of batteries, But they're still makin' noise"

    As is he left his toys when he grew up, they are out of batteries as in he doesn't need them as he has outgrown them, but they still are a memory. Something like this.

    "Pour yourself some tea, Just like grandma made, When we couldn't find sleep, Things were better then, Once but never again, We've all left the den."

    They out grew up, but they can still go back and remember their roots.

    "The choo-choo train left right on time, A ticket costs only your mind, The driver said hey man we go all the way, Of course we were willing to pay!"

    They left, but it cost their sanity to grow up, they had to go all the way.

    Again this is just my basic idea.
