SUBTERRANEAN HOMESICK ALIEN

The breath of the morning
I keep forgetting
The smell of the warm summer air
I live in a town
Where you cant smell a thing
You watch your feet
For cracks in the pavement

 

And up above
Aliens hover
Making home movies
For the folks back home
Of all these weird creatures
Who lock up their spirits
Drill holes in themselves
And live for their secrets

 

They're all up-tight
Up-tight

Up-tight
Up-tight

Up-tight
Up-tight

Uuuup-tight

 

I wish that they'd swoop down
In a country lane
Late at night when im driving
Take me on board
Their beautiful ship
Show me the world
As id love to see it

 

Id tell all my friends
But they'd never believe me
They'd think that id finally
Lost it completely
Id show them the stars
And the meaning of life
They'd shut me away
But id be alright
Alright
Alright
Alright

Im just up-tight
Up-tight

Up-tight
Up-tight

Up-tight
Up-tight

Up-tight
Up-tight

Uuuuup-tight
