Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

"Alien", a song written by Thriving Ivory keyboard player Scott Jason, is only found on the 2008 release of their self-titled album and not the 2003 Indie release. Jason says that this "is the most personal song to me on the record. That song is about my brother. And my brother, he's a brilliant, brilliant, brilliant kid, a full scholarship to Berkeley, and he's gone through some pretty heavy stuff. So that song is really personal." In our Songfacts interview, Jason goes on to say about "Alien": "It makes me sad when I listen back to it, but it also makes me proud. And it's just very emotional, that song. And people that know me knew when I wrote that what it was about. My friends, they knew in one second what it was about." (Check out the full interview with Scott Jason)
