"Violet Stars Happy Hunting!" as written by and Charles Joseph Janelle Monae Robinson....
I'm an alien from outer space (outer space)
I'm a cyber-girl without a face a heart or a mind
(A product of the man, I'm a product of the man)
Ci ci ci
I'm a savior without a race (without a face)
On the run cause they? hit our ways and chase my kind
They've come to destroy me

And I think to myself
(Impossible, it's impossible for me)
Wait, it's impossible
Now they're getting at me (and the police are after you)
They're even after you
For loving too

And all the sirens go
The sirens go
Oh baby uh you know the rules
I love you and I won't take no?

They say that Violet Stars was such a freak (such a freak)
When you're all in lost in love
Following them dark? of Neon Valley streets (of Neon Valley streets)
A pretty day makes a pretty picture
But fall in love and they're coming to get ya
Who knew 10 men with guns were at the door
They trick and treat?

Wait, it's impossible that they're coming for me (the police are after you)
And now they're after you (for loving too)
Baby, I hear the sirens go
Sirens go
Come on Baby, cause here they're coming now (You know the rules)

It's impossible that they're coming for me (the police are after you) (he loves me too)
And now they're after you (for loving too) (he loves me too)

Baby, I hear the sirens go
Sirens go
(I said uh baby)
You know the rules

    General CommentAmazing. No comment? Really?

    The song is introducting Janelle's alien-cyborg alter ego that is the central character of her Metropolis opus. Neat sci-fi influence soul-funk. Dig it.

    General CommentHere are the correct lyrics:

    I'm an alien from outer space (outer space)
    I'm a cybergirl without a face a heart or a mind
    (A product of the man, I'm a product of the man)
    See, see, see, see, see
    I'm a space girl without a race,
    On the run 'cause they're here to erase and chase out my line
    (They've come to destroy me, they've come to destroy me)

    And I think to myself
    Is it possible (Wait, is it possible)
    That they're gunning for me?
    And now they're coming after you
    (And now they're after you)
    For loving too... hard
    All the sirens go doo doo
    (Sirens go doo doo doo doo doo doo doo...)
    Oh baby, ooo you know the rules
    I love you, and I won't take no for an answer

    They say that Violet Stars will set you free (set you free)
    When you're running lost and alone
    Follow them down... up Neon Valley Street (up Neon Valley Street)
    A pretty day makes a pretty picture,
    But fall in love and they're coming to get ya
    Who knew ten men with guns were at the door?
    The droid control! (The droid control...)

    [chorus]

    Wait, it's impossible that they're coming for me (the police are after you)
    And now they're after you (for loving too)
    Baby, I hear the sirens go dooodooo
    Sirens go dooodoooo
    Doooodoooodooooo
    Come on Baby 'cause here they're coming now (You know the rules)

    [whispering]

    It's impossible that they're coming for me (the police are after you) (he loves me too)
    And now they're after you (for loving too) (he loves me too)
    Baby, I hear the sirens go dooodooo
    Sirens go dooodoooo
    Doooodoooodooooo (I said uhh baby)
    You know the rules

    My interpretation is that the song is about being different, outside of the norm; basically alien. And because of this difference from the rest of society, you're a target to be "destroyed" or "erased" like she says in the song.

    General Comment"I love you and I won’t take no for an answer" is the end of that line.

    Amazing song, incorporates so many genres into an out of this world sound... I think this genre should of music is Grippo.
