"Alien" as written by and Nick Kelly....
With my faded map thirty years old
And the landscape's changed and I am moving too slow
And people notice my quaint dress
I ran the last five miles breathless
And the sky looks like oil and the warm rain hurts
As I stumble along past the haunted dirt
Of the broken pavements of this couldn't-care town
No orders came down with me when I was beamed down here

[CHORUS]
I am alien
I was built for another world
I am alien
I'm the kind of creature dogs never bite
Women don't run to men never fight
A translucent hitcher with nothing to say
I was born yesterday I was born just yesterday

[CHORUS+]

I carry messages in language
I do not understand
I am alien
Come hold this alien's hand
With my worn-out name in another man's shoes
And these alien streets I wander through
Grattan hausmann la guardia wren
Proud departures garbled ends
Just stone to clean just stone to mend

[CHORUS+]

Are you alien as well?
