The breath of the morning I keep forgetting The smell of the warm summer air
I live in a town Where you can't smell a thing You watch your feet For cracks in the pavement
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 Uptight Uptight Uptight Uptight Uptight Uptight
I wish that they'd swoop down in a country lane Late at night when I'm driving Take me on board their beautiful ship Show me the world as I'd love to see it
I'd tell all my friends but they'd never believe me They'd think that I'd finally lost it completely I'd show them the stars and the meaning of life They'd shut me away But I'd be alright Alright I'm alright Alright
I'm just Uptight Uptight Uptight Uptight Uptight Uptight Uptight Uptight Uptight

I think this song is about why the f*** not?
Hebrew from St. Paul, Mnhere's an idea, we are to proud to admit there is a God, so let's invent a fantasy that there is aliens who will save us from ourselves. The drugs obviously ain't working, so this one has to end up good. "Faith in aliens... yeah... lets do it."
David from Austin, Txthis song is about a person that fantasizes about being abducted by aliens to escape the misery of his life on earth (a theme covered on all of ok computer, such as "no surprises" where the person kills himself to escape his miserable life). he dreams about seeing the stars and the meaning of life, but society would "shut him away," symbolizing their closed-mindedness and cold herats. "i'm just uptight" is perhaps a deceiving lyric, since the person isn't truly uptight - he's just different than other people because he wants to find spiritual truth and others don't, so his way of rationalizing this difference is that he's just "uptight."
Luis from Ctz,gto, MexicoI lived in Toronto, Canada for a while and I got this album (Ok Computer) on my first winter. "I live in a town where you can't smell a thing, and you watch your feet for cracks in the pavement" And I felt like that alien walking on the frozen streets of TO. Great song...
