The Man Who Fell to Earth

 

The man who fell to earth

The creature from another planet

A monster giving birth

We never want to talk about it

 

Until that fateful scene

When horror show meets science fiction

The nightmare in the dream

The alien and the warm reception

 

In the fifth dimension

Everything looks weirdly normal

The man who fell to earth

Smiling in a drinks promotion

In the fifth dimension

Everything looks weirdly normal

The man who fell to earth

Lounging lizard sheds his old skin

 

Message from outer-space

We come in peace with noble purpose

A zombie eats your face

The scientist who tried to warn us

 

The man who fell to earth

An innocent in awe and wonder

Our everlasting thirst

For the necessary monster

 

In the fifth dimension

Everything looks weirdly normal

The man who fell to earth

Smiling in a drinks promotion

In the fifth dimension

Everything looks hunky dory

The man who fell to earth

Lounging lizard sheds his old skin

 

The man who fell to earth

The man who fell to earth

The man who fell to earth

The man who fell to earth

 

Your face to face

Your face to face

With the man who fell to earth
