"Alien" as written by David Jost, Dave Roth, Patrick Benzner, Tom Kaulitz and Bill Kaulitz....
I feel lost in myself, there's an alien in me
Who are you? Who am I? Blood is that I see
The words in the mirror are making me shiver

Save me with your love tonight
Come and bring me back to life
(Alien)

I lay down on the edge, feel my whole life on rewind
See your face in the crowd a million times
I'm drownin', I'm Fallin', I hear myself calling

Save me with your love tonight
Come and bring me back to life
Save me with your light tonight
You can make the darkness shine

Come and kill the dream gone bad
Alien to love
Come and wake me from the dead
Alien to love, to love
Need your love

Save me with your love tonight
Come and bring me back to life
Save me with your light tonight
You can make the darkness shine

Come and kill the dream gone bad
Alien to love
(Alien)
Come and wake me from the dead
Alien to love, need your love

    My InterpretationThis song is really pretty, but really simple. Nothing too cryptic to me.

    The narrator is lost and fallen. He doesn't know himself anymore. I think the "blood" line paints it out to be pretty dark. Is it his own blood (cutter)? Or is it someone else's (turned killer)? I lean more toward the second option, but it's intentionally vague so someone can interpret it the way they want which is always nice. Whatever his demon is, he's calling out to his love to save him from it and bring him back to life.

    General CommentI think its about how someones world fell apart when their lover broke up with them.

    Save me with your love tonight
    Come and bring me back to life --A plead, asking them to come back, so their world won't be so painful.

    I lay down on the edge
    I feel my whole life on rewind
    See your face
    in the crowd
    A million times
    I`m drowning, I`m fallin
    I hear myself callin --Looking over the memories that they had, both good and bad.

    Im not exactly sure. These lyrics can be put into different meanings. Literally (xD), Theoretically, Figurativley.. ect ect.

    General CommentI think that this song is about the narrator not recognizing his inner self anymore, and is reaching out for some kind of help... possibly from somebody he loves or is close to, or trying to reach the person who he actually is, getting in touch with that person, and becoming that person again.
