lyrics

I am a Martian ©Laforge/Randall

I am a Martian
Dropped in from elsewhere
Into the living room
For drinks and conversation

On my planet
The moon is always red
The sand from your desert
Reflects the blood you shed

I am an angel
Hiding in your pocket
I’ve bent the sky for you
On a chemical afternoon

Where is my place
Somewhere out in outer space
Who has escaped?
A comic-book character
A paper-weight in two dimensions

I am an octopus
Walking on the highway
Hitchhiking the galaxy
Can fish learn to fly?


I am a Spaceman
I’ve been on this planet
Since before it was born
And all this time as nothing

I am a Martian
A star without a picture
My spaceship will return
And I will be gone

Where is my place
Somewhere out in outer space
Dust on the dashboard
Inconsequential
A Dancing bear in the kitchen

Where is my place
Somewhere out in outer space
Who has escaped?
A comic-book character
A paper-weight in two dimensions
