lyrics

It was a day like any day, going my own way
Playing the games I play to make life less lame
I was pessimistic, though that’s okay
I was a sadistic, simplistic cliche
Then what did I see pulling on my street
Than a new neighbor I had to meet and greet
A green glow grew from his U-Haul van
As he unloaded a lab not of this land
I spy on this to see the scientist
And to give you the gist, a man-martian betwixt!
He asked me with glee if I was from this planet
And I declared, “Dammit! I took that for granted!”
He said, “I can help you escape your headache.”
He was so prophetic with his rapturous rhetoric
He said, “You’ll be like me, fancy and free.
You’ll prance with pristine, the dull dirt we’ll clean.”
Thus began my learning to ignore earning
My world was turning around and returning
To a place that’s pure, an outer space detour
I’ll be embraced by the alien race I’m sure
I'd gain greatly from my uneducating
Of all I learned from the school’s sedating
But first he said, “You gotta rap like me.”
He free-styled for miles, the eminent MC

"I am a space alien, I rap about robots and cocks
Question everything, and don't forget to sing
It's not enough to think outside the box."

He made the feds fret, they knew he was a threat
They were dead set on silencing what he said
So he was captured by bureaucratic bastards
They claimed a spinal fracture to put him out to pasture
They did experiments for the government
Without his consent, they punished his dissent
Injuries severe, they took his name and smeared it
Tried to break his spirits, but he wouldn’t hear it
He’ll still ignite the minds, giving sight to blind
Looks to the sky for signs, always live out of line
He’s my hero, an astronomical ace
He’s my best friend from outer space.
