"Loving The Alien" as written by Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, David G Kushner, Scott Richard Weiland and Mathew William Sorum....
Sometimes I think I'm scared
Sometimes I know
I feel like making love
Sometimes I don't

I feel like letting go
Maybe not
I feel like giving up
Is all we got

Sometimes is all the time
And never means maybe
Sometimes is all the time
Maybe

And I'm moving on
And I'm moving on
(Sometimes I feel alone)
And I'm moving on
And I'm moving on

Sometimes I make believe
When we're alone
Machines have taken hold
Can you get me to a telephone
It's just the little things
You used to see
Am I still that man who makes you who you want to be

Sometimes is all the time
And never means maybe
Sometimes is all the time
Maybe

And I'm moving on
And I'm moving on
(Sometimes I feel alone)
And I'm moving on
And I'm moving on

[Repeat: x2]
I never noticed
How lovely were the aliens
Lovely were the aliens

(2x)
And I'm moving on
And I'm moving on
(Sometimes I feel alone)
And I'm moving on
And I'm moving on

[Repeat: x4]
And I'm moving on

    General Commentgreat mellow track... I hope this band stays together cause it could save rock... not yet, their first cd is only alright, but you can def see the potential.. hopefully they will put a stop to all that poppy rock thats on top now

    General CommentA Beautiful track, When I went and bought the cd I wasn't expecting to pop it in my cd player and have a track such as this on a velvet revolver cd. Still this song grew on me a lot and i'm really touched by it. I just would hope somebody could tell me what it's about because I honestly have no idea.

    My InterpretationThis song is the same reason I have such a disconnect with a lot of people. It's actually pretty straight forward; He denies/masks how he really feels.

    Translate:
    - sometimes = all the time
    - never = maybe

    examples:
    - (Sometimes I feel alone) = (I always feel alone)
    - (I feel like letting go, maybe not) = (I never feel like letting go)
    - (sometimes I think I'm scared) = (I feel scared all the time)

    General CommentI think it could be about leaving a relationship, and the alien part, could be about how he never noticed how lovely other women were. LOL, that's just what I get out of it...

    General Commenti think when he says "i never noticed, how lovely were the aliens" he means that throughout his life he never noticed anything that was out of the ordinary, ie aliens. to him, finally noticing and seeing the stranger and more out there things in life is such a "lovely" thing. the whole "moving on" over and over part is probably about scott trying to get off of drugs and so many other things and that now is the time to truly move on after all the addiction.
