"New Frontier" as written by Daniel John Vickrey, Adam Duritz, Matthew Malley, David Bryson, Charles Gillingham, David A Immergluck and Ben G Mize....
(come on children, mind the gap)

Miracle people with marvelous hair
And a knack to do anything
Better than anyone
I got a home with electrical air
And I live in a world
Smaller than any one
I got a line 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 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
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 word that you wanted was al-you-mi-ni-um

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 says I'm goin' home
And you should come home too
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
From the outside of everything to the inside of you
From the outside of everything to the inside of you
From the outside of everything to the inside of you
To the inside of you
To the inside of you
To the inside of you
To the inside of you

    General CommentI'm not afraid to say that is by far the absolute worst Counting Crows song I have ever heard. That's right, step aside Ghost Train and Hanginaround, this one takes the cake. I think I like the entire new album with the exception of this track, however.

    General Commentlyprulz you are EXACTLY right, i bought the new album the day it came out and the first thing that came to mind when i heard this song, was that it was the absolute worst i have ever heard by counting crows! they should have def. left this track off!! but the rest of the cd makes up for it ;) august and everything after is an amazing cd, i love the whole thing, including ghost train. some songs you have to listen to for a while, to truly appreciate them. (this one won't be one of those haha) and in hanginaround, there really isn't that much there to appreciate! but it's catchy i guess... oh welll this song is by far worse!

    General Commentskater, according to annabegins.com he says:

    "come on children mind the gap."

    It's what British bus drivers say when they're making a stop. No idea on what that means though.

    General Comment"mind the gap" is the british warning that conductors give on the subway-- it means watch out for the gap between the subway car and the platform.

    this song is my new york song.

    General CommentI read somewhere that they wrote this song while in England, where they were surrounded by synth-pop crap...so yeah, I guess that makes sense. Still sucks though.

    General CommentI actually like this song if you can get past the corny ass beginning. The begining reminds me of Love Shack by the B-52's and I hate that damn song. I do like this song though. Am I the only one????????
