Beneath the Sun and the burning sky
The higher you go the further you'll fly
Turning away with your private smile
Seemed you could see for a thousand miles

And while the World falls down around you
You shroud yourself in clouds of smoke
You drink a toast to those beside you
But your amity is like a private joke

You mark a circle in the dirt
Like you were tied to a tree
The same movie plays over again
With different actors in the scene

You thought you'd made a break
From the things that weigh you down
But if you dam a river
The water finds a way around.

Now you've got your own gravity
Your orbit fills up the room
We join you in your vanity
And sing with you out of tune
