exendum est, intrum

Dear T Cooper,

this is the briefest way to say it; as you say Latin does not need much words :)

Exendum est: You have got to go out (to be out) - Passive periphrastic construction

Intrum: Supinum for "intro" : enter, go in --> "to go in" (final clauses showing one's wishes can be expressed, among other ways, with a single supinum)

Hope it helped :)
