Chorus
For centuries this simple truth has passed us by despite the proof,
Perspective and perception, and the art of self-deception.
From Galilee to Galileo centre of the wheel;
Turn your eyes to starry skies and tell me what you feel.

Verse 1
I wake up, I laugh I cry,
I eat, I sleep, I wonder why;
I'm happy and sad
And crave the things I've never had.
You wake up, you shower and dress,
Make a call, amends, a mess;
You're selfish and sad
And crave the things you've never had.

Chorus
For centuries this simple truth has passed us by despite the proof,
Perspective and perception, and the art of self-deception.
From Galilee to Galileo centre of the wheel;
Turn your eyes to starry skies and tell me what you feel.

Verse 2
I walk, I run, I sit and drive,
In flight I fight to stay alive;
I'm filled with awe,
I have it all, I long for more.
You're disappointed, cold and hot,
You talk about yourself a lot;
You're selfish and sad
And curse the things you've never had.

Chorus
For centuries this simple truth has passed us by despite the proof,
Perspective and perception, and the art of self-deception.
From Galilee to Galileo centre of the wheel;
Turn your eyes to starry skies and tell me what you feel.

Coda
I won't burn for my beliefs,
There is no more heresy,
Your world turns about a point
A billion miles from me.
Venus has her aspect,
Mars a point of view,
The universe turns about a point
A billion miles from you.

I won't burn for my beliefs...
