Brother won’t you look at the sky
There’s something burning so bright
And what it is I can’t see
But I think it’s coming at me

Did you get here in a rocket
And journey through space
Did your mother never scold you
Oh when she looked at your face
Do you know where you came from
Because you look out of place
In a town where only the rain comes down
You fell down to earth

Like an alien, like an alien, like an alien

Funny because I feel quite at ease
I think you come here in peace
We’re universal in smiles
You know they see it for miles

Did you get here in a rocket
And journey through space
Did your mother never scold you
Oh when she looked at your face
Do you know where you came from
Because you look out of place
In a town where only the rain comes down
You fell down to earth

Like an alien, like an alien, like an alien

    General CommentI really like this song. I think it has really good imagery, but is kinda hard to work out, I doubt if she is talking about a real outerspacey kind of alien but thats what it feels like to me.
