Oh, now little girl, don't cry yourself to sleep
There's a brand new world around you
You can make it if you try
She said the trying's not enough
Sometimes it gets to me
I see people where they're not supposed to be

She thinks about dying
She is verging on the sacred
She is spinning with the sound
She has long ago abandoned
Any other way around
She is verging on the sacred, spinning with the sound
She is gone but not forgotten,
Here but not around

Oh, now little boy, don't cry yourself to sleep
There's a brand new world around you
And you can make it if you try
He said the trying's not enough
Sometimes it gets to me
But you werent supposed to see this side of me

He thinks about flying
He is verging on the sacred
He is spinning with the sound
He has long ago abandoned
Any other way around
He is verging on the sacred, spinning with the sound
He is gone but not forgotten,
Here but not around

Oh, now, I'm not going to cry myself to sleep
Take a look around you
We've got a brand new world around
Just open up your eyes and see
The wonder that is me
And she says what is that supposed to mean?

I wish I knew
We are verging on the sacred
We are spinning with the sound
We have long ago abandoned
Any other way around
We are verging on the sacred, spinning with the sound
We are gone but not forgotten,
Here but not around

We are verging on the sacred
We are spinning with the sound
We have long ago abandoned
Any other way around
We are verging on the sacred, spinning with the sound
We are gone but not forgotten,
Here but not around

We are gone but not forgotten
We are gone but not forgotten

    General CommentBecuase of the fast beat of this song, I always thought it was an underlying ecstacy reference?
