Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Let's ride ten miles up
Just inside the stratosphere
More sky, more blue jets
Stream by, you're gonna love it here

[Verse 2]
Let's fly ten miles up
Just outside the atmosphere
We'll climb oh straight up
Set aside irrational fear

[Chorus 1]
Goodbye, oh to a cruel world
Never again will I ever be grounded on Earth, or be bound by the hurt in your
Blue eyes, offer a brave new world
Out in the starry skies, our paradise, found

[Verse 3]
And as we rise so far above
Our little lights in miniature
Believe your eyes can be transfixed
Knock, knock, knock it down, your heavenly door

[Verse 4]
(One mile into ascent, something's pulling me back)
One mile in, it keeps pulling me back
(At two miles [?])
Have you got to ever leave?
(Five miles higher now, no turning back)
Higher now, there's no turning back
(Ten miles gone in the blink of an eye)
Gone in the blink of an eye

[Chorus 1]
Goodbye, oh to a cruel world
Never again will I ever be grounded on Earth, or be bound by the hurt in your
Blue eyes, offer a brave new world
Out in the starry skies, our paradise, found

[Bridge]
Lift me off the ground
Then I look down
Sing a sad goodbye
The city is a toy town
Left the law behind
Straight up for miles
Or you can hang down
An alternative never given very much for you
Never be ten miles high

[Verse 5]
Know the divine right by your side
Come fill your eyes with its majesty
The tears you'll cry, and the ones you missed
Leave it all behind, and come with me

[Chorus 2]
Goodbye, cruel world
Never again will I ever be grounded on Earth, or be bound by the hurt in your
Blue eyes, brave new world
Out in the starry skies, our paradise, found
