Oceans and mountains
A puddle and an anthill
What's the difference from a light year away
Relativity is shrinking me
But I'm ok

Gotta get out of bed
And go to work
Gotta get out of work
And go to bed
Wonder why a teensy thing like me
Needs so much rest

Ova and semen
A high-rise full of humans
A full hypodermic needle skyline
A swimming sea of sexuality
In the bat of an eye

Gotta get out of work
And head to clubs
Gotta dance and flirt
Gotta cut the rug
Propagating teensy human beings
Is a must

All in all
Small we are
I can't imagine how small we are
It's got me feeling as light as air
As light as air

When I think of how small we are
And now I'm thinking how small we are
It's got me feeling as light as air
As light as air

Light as air

Gotta stay in line
Obey the law
Gotta pay your tithe
And praise your god
Gotta lot of responsibility
For something so small

All in all
Small we are
I can't imagine how small we are
It's got me feeling as light as air
As light as air

When I think of how small we are
And now I'm thinking how small we are
It's got me feeling as light as air
As light as air

    General CommentAccording to Tim himself:
    "There are some fun additional elements to this arrangement, including the age-old reverse-vocal move(!) and oversaturated electronic drums set on a delay that crash through the background of the track. They remind me of meteors crashing to Earth—give it a try!

    This is a bit of a sister song to “Diving Bell” in lyrical content, but without the booze."
