about

Written and recorded Feb 20, 2017

This is another day I didn’t have any ideas except that Chelsey actually picked Japonica and brought it inside. Also that day NASA announced that they would be making a big announcement that week so I let my imagination go on this one. I actually really like this song as silly as it is.

lyrics

I picked some Camellia Japonica
And gave it to a girl called Veronica
She's out of this world like andromeda
She played some sorta psychedelic harmonica

We shared a smoke outside of the carnival
Where she recalled some remarkable article
About the Higgs boson particle
The Neapolitan we shared was marvelous

We were sitting on the cusp of the equinox
When she revealed that she's kinda an astronaut
The words she painted like a modern Renaissance
That's when opportunity began to knock

I'm falling for an alien
She's an inter-dimensional reptilian
She took me to the moon and then back again
But I didn't know what I was up against

She said that earth was kinda an experiment
That we got caught up too much in arrogance
Asked her to stay but she's out of her element
Had to return to her home that's benevolent

She left me with a kiss that was interstellar
She sent me on my own helter skelter
Then with a twist of her propeller
There was so many things that I still wanted to tell her

I'm falling for an alien
She's an inter-dimensional reptilian
She took me to the moon and then back again
But I didn't know what I was up against
