Got this bird's eye view and it's in my brain
Clarity has reared its ugly head again
So this is real life you're telling me
And everything is where it ought to be

I like your nerve, I like watching you
But I don't watch what I'm doing, got better things to do
So this is real life you're telling me
Now I'm lost in shock, your face fits perfectly
