You're standing on your head
You're standing on your head to make amends
For something that you did
And you don't ever seem to get over it
Apologies and shame
You look up to the ones that love to blame
And you'll never be like them
You'll never get so good and confident

But in this world we have you still have to live
And in this life you have you've got so much to give

Isn't it strange
How people they look so small from an aeroplane
It's safe to say
No man is big enough to play superior in any way

With everyone around
You think you'd better try to make no sound
And the royalty is here
Searching with their eyes to find your fear

But in this world we have you still have to live
And in this life you have you've got so much to give

Isn't it strange
How people they look so small from an aeroplane
It's safe to say
No man is big enough to play superior in any way

Here comes the king
Here comes the jester of the court
Here comes the queen
She's looking better with her mask on

And in this world we have you still have to live
And in this life you have you've got so much to give
It's high time to wake up and to live

Isn't it strange
How people they look so small from an aeroplane
It's safe to say
No man is big enough to play superior in any way
