Everyone's gotta write a song about being abducted by aliens!


On a late night drive through the countryside
Trying to keep my eyes open 'til I get home
The hum of the road, hot sticky air
Found my car in a ditch with no service for my phone
I waited a while to see who might drive by
But it'd be morning before they would
So I set out to walk eight miles to town
To find someone to help if I could
I cut through the woods on an old bike path
That had been worn in since I was young
When I came to a clearing I was met by a sight
That stopped me as quickly as a gun

Lights in the sky
Moving at me with tremendous speed
Lights in the sky
My feet planted like they grew from seed

Ships came down and opened up
And these creatures came scrambling out
I was taken aboard and strapped down tight
And I watched to greys scurry all about
Time after that was all a blur
I was on that ship god knows how long
I remember mostly pain, bright lights, and terror
But the doctors assure me nothing's wrong


They put me back in that field sound asleep
Nobody ever knew that I was gone
When I told my story they laughed in my face
And chased me right out of town
Now I've learned to keep my mouth shut
They'll all get their turn
'Cause I know one day when the greys come back
Disbelievers are all gonna burn
