"Floaty" as written by and David Eric Grohl....
He floats
Floats away
On the ground
He comes back down

She floats
Floats away
On the ground
She comes back down

They float
Float away
On the ground
They come back down

We float
Float away
On the ground
We come back down

That's not as big as
What's flown around here

    General CommentI think its crap so many people think almost all of the foo fighters songs are about kurt and nirvana. He has other things to write about other than the short time he spent in that band.

    General CommentI think this is about Kurt and Courtney "He floats, he floats away, he comes back down", This must mean how he was a legend but it all ended so sudden. And "SHE comes back down" means how Courtney was popular til Tom Grant came along"

    General CommentI think this track is about UFOs and possibly alien abductions. Dave once said that one of the songs off the first album referred to UFOs but didn't say which one. If that is the case, I'd say this song is a strong candidate for being the one he was referring to.

    It would also fit in with the theme behind the name of the band, Foo Fighters were the names given to the unidentifed aircraft that were present during WWII.

    General CommentIt is about UFOs, dave said it, it was a dream he had involving UFOs. It was inevitable, seeing as the album had a Disintigrator on the front

    General Commenti'm pretty certain these lyrics have been put in the wrong order. I think it should be:

    he floats
    floats away
    on the ground
    he comes back down

    they float
    float away
    on the ground
    they come back down

    she floats
    floats away
    on the ground
    she comes back down

    we float
    float away
    on the ground
    we come back down

    that's not as big as
    what's flown around here
