Ian Knapp If the Aliens Came Lyrics

I turn on the TV - it's some talk show about rising crime
The audience is shouting: "We should lock them up for good."
Some guy who steals things is trying to convince us that it's all because he's misunderstood
Is it me, or is everyone feeling confused?
The DJ on the radio is spouting out statistics
About how my health is failing and my soul has given up
A lady from the government's evading his questions but we all know she's really messed things up
Is it me, or is everything coming unstuck?

If the aliens came here they'd think we were crazy insane
They would turn 'round their s***eships, head back in the direction they came
With a mark in their notebook to never come here again
Oh, if the aliens came...oh, if the aliens came...oh, if the aliens came

Am I by myself again? What are we turning into?
Am I by myself again? What are we turning into?
Am I by myself again?
I walk into the shopping mall
A guy dressed as a doughnut's handing slices of America to all the hungry kids
So parents who just want an easy life can spend their wages on the very things they said they would forbid
Is it me, or is everything starting to slip?

If the aliens came here they'd think we were crazy insane
Well, they'd turn 'round their s***eships, head back in the direction they came
With a mark in their notebook to never come here again
If the aliens came...oh, if the aliens came...oh, if the aliens came
Am I by myself again? What are we turning into? If the aliens came
Am I by myself again? What are we turning into?
Am I by myself again?

Well, I keep getting telephoned
By people selling things for which they tell me I will never have to pay
And back on television some guy's asking if I've had an accident for which I'd like to make a claim
Is it me, or is everyone feeling ashamed?

If the aliens came here they'd think we were crazy insane
They would turn 'round their s***eships, head back in the direction they came
With a mark in their notebook to never come here again
Oh, if the aliens came...oh, if the aliens came...oh, if the aliens came
