Subterranean Homesick Alien

I figure this could count for Illustration Friday's "Seperated" even though it's a bit of a stretch.
Sorry for awful photos. My camera really hates colors like this. :(


"Subterranean Homesick Alien" by Radiohead

The breath of the morning

I keep forgetting
The smell of the warm summer air

I live in a town

Where you can't smell a thing
You watch your feet
For cracks in the pavement

Up above

Aliens hover
Making home movies
For the folks back home

Of all these weird creatures

Who lock up their spirits
Drill holes in themselves
And live for their secrets

They're all uptight

Uptight.. [x7]

I wish that they'd swoop down in a country lane

Late at night when I'm driving
Take me on board their beautiful ship
Show me the world as I'd love to see it

I'd tell all my friends

But they'd never believe
They'd think that I'd finally lost it completely

I'd show them the stars

And the meaning of life
They'd shut me away
But I'd be all right
All right..

I'm just uptight

Uptight.. [x7]
