What is the meaning of "scheming" in the Imagine Dragons' song "Thunder"? The song is about the singer whose dreams about being a musical celebrity have been oppressed in his childhood.
I would guess "scheming for the masses" means in the context something like "I was planning big concerts" or "I was being formed to be a rock star" but I'm not really sure.
Kids were laughing in my classes
While I was scheming for the masses
Who do you think you are?
Dreaming 'bout being a big star
