Floating on waves of static, high above your home
Somewhere in between water and ice
Looking down upon everyone you've ever known
In your whole entire so-called life

I've always thought that you were really something else
Like a presence here from far away
Unwrapped as if to draw attention from yourself
Never, ever having much to say

I know you know just what you like
And I am really not your thing
But just in case you change your mind
I wrote this song for you to sing

You always were the type to hide your head in the sand
Wary of the latest trend or scene
Despite your reticence, your name is in demand
Oblivion through a naughty magazine

I know you know just what you like
And I am really not your thing
But just in case you change your mind
I wrote this song for you to sing

I know you know just what you like
And I am really not your thing
But just in case you change your mind
I wrote this song for you to sing

    Lyric CorrectionFloating on waves of static high above your home
    Somewhere in between water and ice
    Looking down upon everyone you've ever known
    In your whole entire so-called life

    I've always thought that you were really something else
    Like a present sent from far away
    Unwrapped as if to draw attention from yourself
    Never ever having much to say

    I know you know just what you like
    And I am really not your thing
    But just in case you change your mind
    I wrote this song for you to sing

    You always were the type to hide your head in sand
    Wary of the latest trend or scene
    Despite your reticence your name is in demand
    Bleeding through hound dog eared magazines

    I know you know just what you like
    And I am really not your thing
    But just in case you change your mind
    I wrote this song for you to sing

    I know you know just what you like
    And I am really not your thing
    But just in case you change your mind
    I wrote this song for you to sing
