Garbage – Not Your Kind Of People lyrics

We are not your kind of people
You seem kind of phony
Everything's a lie

We are not your kind of people
Something in your makeup
Don't see eye-to-eye

We are not your kind of people
Don't want to be like you
Ever in our lives

We are not your kind of people
Find when you start talking
There's nothing but white noise

Running around trying to fit in
Wanting to be loved
It doesn't take much
For someone to shut you down

When you build a shelf
Build a mummy in your mind
You can't sit still and you don't like hanging 'round the crowd
They don't understand

You drove by as I was sleeping
You came to see the whole commotion
And when I woke I started laughing
The joke's on me for not believing

We are not your kind of people
Speak a different language
We see through your lies

We are not your kind of people
Won't be cast as demons
Creatures you despise

We are extraordinary people
