I've got crop circles under my eyes,
And this morning in the bath I scratched my thigh,
It felt like rotting flesh,
I thought my fingers my go right through down to the bone,
Where it's shaved dry,
Send back the sky,
It's too blue,
Besides, I ordered black,
Didn't you?
Didn't you?

Listen,
Listen,
Not to me,
The sky,
Don't you hear it shrieking with banshee glee?
I can't sleep!

We were watching Rawhide at midnight,
And then all of the sudden,
I saw these strange taillights in the sky,
Was there an abduction ordeal,
Or confunction anele?
But somehow, we ran through the field,
And we never looked back,
Never looked back

And then this one time,
I was in a waste dish full of silver trays,
And inside it was like white walls and brown reclining chairs,
So you don't fall out,
Because you could fall right out,
Because the drink they give you,
It turns from orange to green,
And it's square and then it's round,
And it makes you trip,
It makes you see things,
It makes you see things like tomorrow

And then only they are real,
You aren't even real anymore,
And only the aliens are real,
And then you aren't even real anymore,
And only they are real,
And you aren't even real anymore

And then this one time,
I saw a black cat on my windowsill,
And then I saw this light,
On the hill,
And then I saw this tiny black dot in the sky,
It looked so far away,
But it came down so fast,
And it chased me,
And it chased you,
And we ran through the field,
And we never looked back,
Never looked back
Never looked back
Never looked back

But now I never question frozen greens of stringy strands,
And strange footprints in my bathtub,
I'm not so scared of aliens anymore,
I know why the plants get broken,
I know it's nightclub hands,
It's men that go bump in the night,
There's the mister of your missing time,
They're the aliens,
They're the ones that do all the real abducting

And then you aren't even real anymore,
But those men aren't even real,
Only you are real now,
Only me and you are real now,
Only me and you are real now,
Only we are real now,
Only we are real,
Only we are real now,
Only we are real,
Only we are real now,
Only we are real,
Only we are real now,
Only we are real now,
Only we (you) are real now,
Only we (you) are real now,
Only we (you) are real now,
Only we (you) are real
