Stems and gears, oh how the daisies bloom
When chandeliers light up the engine room
Can you feel the drops as it starts to rain
There's an underwater Ferris wheel
Where I found the missing link to this island chain

Home will always be here, unseen, outta sight
Where I disappear and hide
I think dreamy things as I'm waving goodbye
So I'll spread out my wings and fly

Home is a boxcar
And it's so far
Out of reach
Hidden under
Umbrella Beach

Home will always be here, unseen, outta sight
Where I disappear and hide
I think dreamy things as I'm waving goodbye
So I'll spread out my wings and fly
I'll spread my wings and fly

Home is a boxcar
And it's so far
Out of reach
Hidden under
Umbrella Beach

    I think it means that there's so much beauty in the world around us and that if we open our eyes to look at it we'll find that its amazing and fun like our own little world that we will always have nearby us.

    I don't think the world is the greatest thing we have, because it can also be the worst thing we have, just in my opinion. (:
