(Come on children mind the gap)
Miracle people with marvelous hair
And a knack to do anything better than anyone’s
I got a home with electrical air
And I live in a world
Smaller than anyone

But I got a line on a new frontier
I got a line on a new America
All of the people are vanishing here
I could be huge, if I could just get home
From the outside of everything
To the inside of you
From the outside of everything
To the inside of you

Purest aluminum people
Are walking the streets of London
So hysterical
Nobody here gets a word that I say
and the problems I’m told are more than medical
But I got a friend from the new frontier
And Galen, she says, “this is not America”
You need a girl with electrical hair
And the words that you wanted was al-u-min-ium

From the outside of everything
To the inside of you
From the outside of everything
To the inside

I was in bed with
The girl at the end of the world
She said “I’m going home,
You should come home too”
But I’m at the end of a new frontier
Here at the edge of the flat earth ending
I’m getting off to get lost in the air
At the end of the world where the light is bending
From the outside of everything
To the inside of you
