They Might Be Giants (sometimes abbreviated as TMBG) is an American alternative band formed in 1982 by John Flansburgh and John Linnell.

Currently, the members of TMBG are Flansburgh, Linnell, Marty Beller, Dan Miller, and Danny Weinkauf. They are best known for an unconventional and experimental style of alternative music.

Draw the curtain, look, you're only sleeping 
Or is this only what the other you is dreaming? 
Either way 
Hard to take 

Ashen features unmistakably your own 
Familiar posture, recast in skin and bone 
Person from today 
Here is you in 2082 

Remove your helmet, first equalize the pressure 
No, but first, take readings to be sure 
The atmosphere is safe 
Yes, it's safe 

As the ancient one cranes his head to look 
You see his hand's been replaced with a hook 
But it's clear you're very much alive 
It's 2105 

No, it's 2240 
No, it's 3415 
How can you still be living? 
What does this mean? 

You must honor and respect the older fellow 
Even as you suffocate him with his pillow 
Though you're strong 
He was wise 

There is much you can learn from the sage 
And though you'll leave and travel back to your own age 
You will meet again, you two 
In 2082 

What was the look he gave intended to convey? 
Was there something else he was trying to say? 
It will all be revealed to you 
In 2082
