Would it make you feel much better If it was you against the world If you were an alien If it were conspiracy and would it hurt to live in comfort If you found someone to trust If you knew that you were with us If we shared a common goal But you will isolate, alienate No one can appreciate the poor miss understood Can you see that I don’t care anymore Do you ever stop to listen Are you a martyr for your pride Does it makes you fell much better When you are an alien?

    General CommentI think it's all about complaining how no one makes the effort to understand you when all the time you never share yourself so no-one can. You get a kick out of people trying to work you out but eventually they will stop caring.

    General CommentI do believe this songs about all those people who think everythings a conspiracy and everyones against them, and its asking why they cant just relax and enjoy life instead of trying to blame eveyone else for the worlds problems

    General Commenti sorta agree with thelordofsod but i think it's more like complaining about how everyone is different than you and no one agrees with you, also alien 8 = alienate, like you alienate yourself

    General Commenti guess its about abstracting yourself, being alone, but still not complaining, you have a way out, alien8 yourself. cool song, would be nice as a soundtrack.

    General CommentThis song really reminds me of someone I know
    especially "no one can appreiciate the poor Miss Understood" I reckon it's about people who think they're problems cannot be understood by anyone else, and that their problems give them some sort of depth, when really all it is is them keeping everyone at arms length. I think it's about people with an overblown sense of worth and massive persecution complex. That kind of attitude really doesnt sit well with me. I think lagwagon have some really good structured rants going on in their music.

    General CommentI completely agree with damn the man. I think everyone knows someone like that. Just as the lyrics go they think it would be better if it was them against the world.
