The Interrupters – Alien Lyrics

Lyrics The Interrupters – Alien

My bones are the bars of a jail
And I’ve never felt completely female
I sleep when the sun starts to rise
So I spend the night drying my eyes
And I watch all the humans, they move place to place
And hide in plain sight with that look on their face
Do they feel the same or is it just me?
I wish I could fly into that beautiful beam

And I don’t fit in, I’m strugglin’
I’m trying to be one of them
But I’m an alien around here

And I don’t fit in, I’m strugglin’
I’m trying to be one of them
But I’m an alien around here
I’m an alien around here

My soul’s crawling out of my skin
Yeah, this gravity’s wearing me thin
I’d probably breathe better on Mars
Floating up there above the stars
And I watch all the humans, they move place to place
And hide in plain sight with that look in their face
Do they feel the pain or is it just me?
I wish I could fly into that beautiful beam

And I don’t fit in, I’m strugglin’
I’m trying to be one of them
But I’m an alien around here
And I don’t fit in, I’m strugglin’
I’m trying to be one of them
But I’m an alien around here
I’m an alien around here

They look at me like I’m from light-years away
They look at me like I’m from light-years away

And I don’t fit in, I’m strugglin’
Now I am not trying to be one of them
I’m an alien
Around here
