Lyrics for Loving The Alien
By David Bowie

Mail these lyrics to a friend

Watching them come and go
the templars and the saracens.
They're travelling the holy land opening telegrams.
Torture comes and torture goes

knights who'd give you anything.
They bear the cross of coeur de leon

salvation for the mirror blind.

But if you pray all your sins are hooked upon the sky

Pray and the heathen lie will disappear.

Prayers they hide the saddest view.
Believing the strangest things - loving the alien.
And your prayers they break the sky in two.
Believing the strangest things - loving the alien.

Thinking of a different time
palestine a modern problem.
Bounty and your wealth in land
terror: in a best laid plan.
Watching them come and go
tomorrows and the yesterdays.
Christians and the unbelievers hanging by the cross and nail.
But if you pray all your sins are hooked upon the sky
. . .
Prayers they hide the saddest view. . . .

You pray till the break of dawn.
Believing the strangest things - loving the alien.
And you'll believe you're loving the alien.
Believing the strangest things - loving the alien.
Believing the strangest things - loving the alien.
