  • No need to be here
    No card to clock in
    And I can swear somebody's watchin'
    Where I go and where I've been.
    Brother I can see moses
    And all the things he did for you
    Oh brother I've been hearing voices
    That I'm probably not supposed to.
    How will I walk steady
    If the ground should come alive
    And tell me how will I be ready
    For the world another time

    Whoa alien!
    You'll be just fine,
    You've always been beautiful
    To me
    Whoa alien!
    Pay us no mind,
    We haven't the light to hold
    To see

    Am I another slave now
    To the screamin in my head
    Or is it a little strange now,
    How the moment's gone and fled
    Oh brother I gotta tell ya,
    That something here is wrong,
    Oh brother I gotta tell ya
    This place ain't a-what I thought


    I know I ain't gonna build forever
    (No I ain't gonna build forever)
    And I know you feel the same
    (And I know you feel the same)
    You'll see it when your older
    (You'll see it when your older)
    No love is not a game anymore
    So thank god we're together.

    Whoa alien.
    You'll be just fine, fine


    Whoa alien! Whoa! Yea! Writer/s: CLAYTON STROOPE, SCOTT LEE JASON
