Transdermal celebration
Caused a slight mutation
In the rift
It's awful domination
Left the people running for the hills
But the mutants that I see
Shine their beauty unto me
I wish you could see them

Tectonic tribulation
Formed a crust of green beyond the reef
Waves fell in formation
Cause the plants to bend with spi-ked leaves
I'm growing with the land
Time has taken my hands and let me touch them

Hey, hey,
A billion miles to Mark A
Lay on the lawn, he's already home
When the morning ray hits his face

Transdermal celebration
Jets flew in formation
I could see them
Dropping the crustaceans
Leaving trails of flames in their wake
But where is the mutation
Who once told me it was safe, I can't find him

    I am posting again to add to my previous comment, I do now believehe is saying "a million miles to Margate" . This song is so awesome, and still draws me to continue to seek its meaning, hoeever the musical part is also well written. My congrsys to Adam Phillips for the video. It was fate that led you to create this video, I feel certain.

    Well so far i feel unsure of the actual meaning. Ive read everything from drug references, to war, to end of the world. Ill give my opinion, but only the artist truly knows. I believe its about a merging of an alien culture with humans, just before a tribulation of society. To me, the video was powerful, and as someone else from another site stated, i still cant shake the eerie feeling i get when i see the part where " the waves fell in formation ". In fact, i went two months without hearing it, because i was so startled from the implications. I also am unsure if the " hey hey a billion miles to mark a" what is mark a? Originally thought i was hearing " hey hey a billion miles from our cave" but im still unsure.
