We are such little people
We have such little brains
The tiniest thought can set off
A heartbomb of giant pain
Keep the blast self-contained

Big life - terrifying place to be left alone
Headcase - tripping over worries in the great unknown
Set it all down in stone
Searching for the perfect rhyme

Strange sounds - would you love me more if I were a ghost?
Why not - terrify the one that you trust the most
My head is splitting right in two
Spilling/Spitting out a perfect blue

Little people - crawing ’round in my mind
Tiny people - having such a good time
They’re building tiny homes and tiny schools and tiny prisons
They’re building roads and bridges, tiny highways, filling stations
Someday I’ll kick them out and knock it down and plant some flowers
