Everyday convince myself of everything I can and can't believe abused confused
Everyday you fee every crime just stare up at the sky and wonder why afraid deranged
Hold on to your promise you can use it for a crutch stand by while all your dreams are trampled in the dust Leave now before your slick machines begin to rust Last chance farewell among us
Everyday you get a little bit older and everything gets hard you wonder why
afraid deranged
everyday you feel every crime an endless shocking show on the parade abused confused
Where are the Aliens We're the Aliens

    General CommentI love this song, it's probably the best one on Straight Ahead if not the best ever. I think the meaning is that he feels alienated and alone in a world that's so violent and apathetic to its own violence. This is also the first song I ever learned to play on the guitar.

    General Commentsuch a great song, hear it at the PA system at the skatepark a lot.

    real good song on the observation of society. some will feel alienated and wondering why there is so much violence, why is everyone immoral, why do you have to struggle, to claw your way up to a certain station in life and if it's all really worth it? The person in this song had dreams of making it, then sees it's not that easy, that the world is a weird, cruel, and unfair place. the person just needs a release. if there is an actual "alien" as referred to the song. the band is definitley telling him to get the f*ck out of here, because this place sucks!

    General CommentPennywise are awesome as are their lyrics and this song is awesome too, however not nessecarily their most lyrically ingenius effort, as a drummer if ound the drumming to be right on the spot, Byron MCMackin does a wonderful job with this track.
    If you like pennywise and bad religion and the sorts, check out the lyrics to my band Erasa, or Everybody Rebel Against Societies Authority they are very pennywise ad br influenced it is simple just type in Erasa on the band search thing and have a read, tell me what you think and i will give youinfo how to acquire recorded versions.
    Later.

    General CommentLyrically I do like this song, musically I think its horrible and not one of their best slower songs. Who's on your side? on Land of the Free? is so much better smoother and expertly executed, and so are the lyrics. I do like the criticism this song(alien) provides: the apathy that currently plagues our society. Indirectly he's making a plea for people to change their way of life and adopt a peaceful attitude and positive state of mind. Who is the alien he is referring to? he and others who believe in and follow peace. we who believe in peace and alternative ways of living their lives are aliens in our own society.
