Upside Looking Down Lyrics

Well you came on like some blazing supernova
With a flame that burned so brightly in the sky
Then you woke up and your long white night was over
And you cursed the world that dared to pass you by

Now you blame the ones who love you for your sorrows
Dealing dirty while you steal the higher ground

But you cheated and you lied
And life took you for a ride
Now you're standing on the upside
Looking down

And O the hero in disguise
Believing his own alibis
You run so scared you're standing still
I know you are — I know you will

Be the first to call it quits and run for cover
While your little world is crumbling all around

But you punked out on yourself
You can't blame nobody else
Now that you're standing on the upside
Looking down

And O the heartache of the thief
Strung out on his own stash of grief
A line for you — a flake for me
But now it's ancient history

When the sky is turning black and glassing over
As you drift so high above the lights of town

All at once it seems so clear
You can see it all from here
When you're standing on the upside
Looking down
