Ever feel that you don't quite belong?

lyrics

I’d like to start by saying that I’m real,
I’d like to tell you that I’m just like you.
But I’m not, you see.
I’m an alien.
I don’t know where I come from
‘Cause I don’t know where I’ve been.
I don’t know where I’m looking
‘Cause I don’t know what I’ve seen.
Because you see,
I’m an alien.

I’ve been and gone and found out that I’m an alien,
I didn’t want to know the secret isolation.
Dreams haunt me now that I know that I’m an alien,
You can’t escape from who you are.

You can’t escape from who you are.
With masks, or fashion, or television.
Just voices, bad voices.
Weird voices in my head.

Just voices, bad voices.
Weird voices in my head.

I’ve been and gone and found out that I’m an alien,
I didn’t want to know the secret isolation.
Dreams haunt me now that I know that I’m an alien,
You can’t escape from who you are.

My head spins around and around.
Everything is alien, everything is false.
What I took for my home
Is just a catacomb of my own humanity.
You can’t escape from who you are,
I can’t escape from where I am.
‘Cause you see, I’m an alien.
Don’t you see, I’m an alien.
Can’t you see? That I’m an alien.
Don’t you see, that I’m an alien.
Can’t you see? That I’m an alien.
