If they saw my face, would I still take a bow
Will they know me, know me, know me, now

If they saw my face, would I still take a bow
Will they know me, know me, know me, now
Now I know my place, if science will allow
Will they know me, know me, know me -
Now I'm all alone, it's like some kind of test
My how I have grown, will they know me now
If the human race, with their collective brow
Will they know me, know me, know me, now

Now I'm all alone, it's like some kind of test
My how I have grown, will they know me now
If the human race, with their collective brow
Will they know me, know me, know me, now

    General CommentIt is true; this songs is actually called "The Nomi Song", whch they used as the title for a documentary on his life.

    As for the meaning, I believe that it is about being remembered and respected once gone. And this song is refere to Nomi himself since the words "know me" can be interchanged with his last name "Nomi", pronounced the same way.

    General CommentI love this song, but it makes me sad because I think Klaus Nomi was very alone when he died.

    General CommentI agree with el reeker. I also think it's about not being understood properly. And about being judged by everyone and somewhat feared "If the human race, with their collective brow
    Will they know me, know me, know me, now"
    Klaus Nomi was an alien after all.
