David Bowie - Loving The Alien (Official Video)


Taken from Bowie's 'Tonight' album released in 1984, which featured the singles 'Blue Jean', 'Tonight' and 'Loving The Alien'.

LOVING THE ALIEN

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
Pray and the heathen lie will disappear

Prayers the  hide the saddest view
(Believing the strangest things, loving the alien)
And your prayers will break the sky in two
(Believing the strangest things, loving the alien)
