Alien Christ
You're invited to the party
 down by the rocket crash. 
No one knows what happened there
,cause the thing went down so fast. 
And they've gathered up the pieces
, still burning with blue radiance. 
Some say it's just a missile
. Others say it must be aliens.

And the only eye-witness 
Is a Russian widow, and she says 
"It's clear that he has come again
.Sell your SUVs for Jesus"

But the merchants were the first to come
, with popcorn stands and freakshows
. Selling everything from religious relics to plastic UFOs. 
And the news teams come with cameras cameras cameras thick as flies. 
A Pulitzer Prize to the first of you who talks to the alien Christ.

And the days they came and went 
With no sign of the mystical
. So they all went back to the daily drone 
Of the practical and predictable. 
And Farmer Johnson built his rambler house upon that rocket hole. 
As if to prove man's domain
 o ver everything unknown

. And he fell in love with the neighbor girl and had a baby shortly after
. That kid never made a single sound except the sound of laughter. 
And the words first came at 8 years old 
when she spoke about the crash
. And she said and she said and she said, 
"Someone as God came 
And ran its fingers through my hair"
