    I think it means that the father is dead in a war or something and the son has to learn to get on without him. At the end, he gives up trying to get his father back and just joins him.

    Stromae wrote this about his own experience of not having his dad. His dad died when he was young. (Wikipedia)

    Papaoetai just means dead where you at. It's all about growing up without a dad and seeing other kids have a great time with their dad
