Alien

Who would have thought out of all of the stars in this desert sky
I would behold such a wondrous oasis of six billion I’s?

Who would have thought the so-called dominant species
Would take paradise for granted?

Love is a word humans use all the time
Though I feel that they don’t understand it.

(chorus):
I’m an alien who’s just arrived here on this planet
Of green brown and blue.
I’m an alien amazed at where my craft has landed –
Ive come in search of you.
Now let’s fall in love so I have an excuse to stay.
Let’s fall in love so I never go away.

Space is a womb and the earth is an egg to penetrate.
Many have come; love has given its seed; still we separate.

Who would have thought the so-called dominant species
Would take paradise for granted?

Love is a word religions use all the time –
War’s the proof that they don’t understand it.

(chorus repeat)

(bridge):
Living kaleidoscope forever blossoming,
Species co-dreaming a breathing philosophy.
Destined for nothing but self acceptance,
The story of earth is a possible sentence.
She keeps writing, erasing and writing, erasing.
This is where I belong.

Only one planet with multiple worlds.
Hands reach for light, fingers programmed to curl.
Octaves of light shine through mental projections.
Crystallized truths are a lie in perception.
Here is where I belong.

(spoken):
If you want to be perceived as an alien,
Just allow yourself to be more human.

(chorus repeat)
