Wolf Parade Am I An Alien Here

I had a dream you left me for someone who was mean to me

So I cried and left for Mexico

Well I tried to learn to surf by riding a machine I kept beside the window

It was not a good way to be

It was not a good way to be

I had a dream I was in school, I was learning from the best how to overcome my blues

They said, here’s a spider in a bowl, here’s Poseidon’s white bull

Now, just pretend you have the right to choose

And I say, am I an alien here?

Here in the cave of my skull

Crawling around in the dark

Dark to the ones I love

Put fodder on the fire, get water from the well

It’s a simple kind of life

And happiness is easy, it’s a story that you tell, it’s a teardrop in your eye

And I had a dream that he died, and he died, then he died, and then mama died too

And somewhere in the world an evil genius was on the rise

And then Bowie died, and everyone said

Oh, what are we gonna do

Am I an alien here?

Here in the cave of my skull

Crawling around in the dark

Dark to the ones I love

Am I an alien here?

Here in my room
