I was born a thousand million miles away
In the forest they called Amsterdam.
I'm a direct descendant of the kings and queens
though they won't say that I am.

And if they ever find me, they will know. (x4)

That I didn't tell them anything.
They asked me to but I pretended
I was sick or blind or deaf,
That I had nothing in my head
That I was just a normal man,
Who floats in space because he can.
Who doesn't know just where he's from
But knows these questions are all wrong.

But (ooh) we were wrong. (x3)
We're not alone.

I didn't tell them anything. (x8)
I'm sitting in the room with the light in my face.
I'm sitting in the room with the alien race.
I'm sitting up here a thousand million miles away.
I'm sitting in the room with the light in my face.
I'm sitting in the room with the alien race.
I'm sitting up here a thousand million miles away.
I'm sitting up here a thousand million miles away. (x4)
