lyrics

We arrive and depart all alone
on our tiny pale blue spaceship we were given as a home
our solar system looks a lot like a starter kit to the stars

but what if it’s all in your head?
what if it’s all in your head?

to and fro, dawn to dusk, a to b
we live our tiny little lives like sailors lost at sea
surrounded by the sea and sky with no land in sight
still we sail (just on a different scale)

but what if it’s all in your head?
what if it’s all in your head?

lost in your mind yeah it is time to make a sound
but no one can hear you if no one’s around
you’re one of a kind and it is time to scream and shout
you live in perception and there’s no way out

if we all live our lives in your mind
then that kind of makes you god, and it kind of makes you blind
because you live just like us behind your eyes
behind your eyes, behind your eyes, behind your

lost in our minds yeah it is time to make a sound to make a sound
but no one can hear us if there’s no one if there’s no one around
you’re one of a kind and it is time to scream and time to scream and shout
cause we’re stuck in perception and there’s no way out

if we all live our lives in your mind
then that kind of makes you god, and it kind of makes you blind
because you live just like us behind your eyes
behind your eyes, behind your eyes, behind your...
