lyrics

Three miles high and nothing much going on
(Nothing much)
Three miles high and Nothing much going on
Three miles high and not much to talk about
(Nothing much)
Three miles high and he pulls his head wires out

And the Captain comes on the microphone
The Captain comes on the speaker again
He says:
Look to your left, that's the world passing you by
Look to your left, where your ancestors died
He says:
Look to your right, that's where your secrets lie
Look to your right, well they're scattered on the countryside

Three miles high and she pulls out her magazine
(Cosmo or Seventeen)
Three miles high, she stares at the movie screen
(So bland that it's obscene)
Three miles high and packed like a sardine can
(Living like modern man)
Three miles high and she drinks just to pass the time
(Up here it's not a crime)

The Captain comes on the microphone
The Captain comes on the speaker again
She says:
Look to your left, that's your life passing you by
Look to your left, where your ancestors died
She says:
Look to your right, that's where your secrets lie
Look to your right, 'cause they're buried in the countryside

And the Captain comes on the microphone
The Captain comes on the speaker again
She says:
Look to your left, that's your life passing you by
Look to your left, where your ancestors died
She says:
Look to your right, those are where your secrets lie
Look to your right, 'cause they're buried in the countryside


Look to your left
Look to your right
Look to your left
Look to your right
To your left, to your right..
