E.T. Lyrics

You're so hypnotizing
Could you be the devil?
Could you be an angel?

You're touch magnetizing
Feels like I am floating
Leave my body glowing

They say be afraid
You're not like the others
Futuristic lover

Different DNA
They don't...

    I know this song is about someone she's in love with but he's so different that it's like he's from another world. No one understands him. She's curious because she's never met anyone like him which is what "could you be the devil, could you be an angel" means. People are telling her to "be afraid" or basically "Stay away from him, he's weird" but she just thinks he's different. He "opened her eyes" to more possibilities of love. The love is so different it's extraterrestrial.

    And you know what? I'm tired of people shoving this illuminati crap down our throats. So, yeah, maybe it does exist. But you can't just assume she's in the illuminati. "Poison" could very well be something that overtakes her mind and makes her see differently. She hasn't admitted to being in it so shut up. She has an amazing talent both for singing and writing and you're not going to ruin her career because you're being overly presumptuous. Maybe she is, maybe she isn't. Just don't jump to conclusion without hardcore facts (lyrics are often challengingly ambiguous so they don't count as facts).

    In my opinion, when she says "fill me with your poison," she is basically referring to semen. Thanks.

    Apparently she kissed an extra terrestrial, and she liked it!

    Two words...magic finger...nuff said!

    My interpretation comes with "love at first sight" experience. It is magnetic, drawing, and out of this world because you cannot experience it multiple times. Scientifically "love at first sight" is real and can cause one to go temporarily insane. It is an intimate, vulnerable act to stare into each other's eyes while the passion increases. You want to be a victim and risk it all for that person you just fell in love with. They are now literally a drug. It hits your brain the same way as cocaine and heroine. It can cause your pupils to dilate as we see in the video how the eyes are first eractic to dilating meanining take me now. All the lights are witnessed by those who fell in love at first sight.

    My interpretation is it’s either she’s dating the devil or a Nephilim because they’re from a different realm. Then hers so she’s either getting one or the other because how the flip how in the name of Jesus g*****n Christ are you supposed to do it with an alien

    It's about being submissive but only in a CONSENSUAL DYNAMIC. Without consent it's abusive and very wrong.

    Has anyone ever read the Chronicles of Gor?

    It's a bit bdsmy but it takes it a bit farther. it's a bit extreme

    Basically it's a series of books that was started in the 1960s by a man that wasn't pleased with all the rights women were beginning to receive​.

    In the book women were abducted from earth by men and taken to a planet where men reigned supreme and these women were treated as slaves. They had no rights, they existed to be pleasing and obedient. They were called kajira. They grew over time to accept their new role and new life.

    It's a bit extreme for my preferences but I see elements of it in the song.

    Such as the submissive mindset she adopts, the prevailing "alien abduction" theme, how free she feels, the extreme display of dominance displayed in the version with Kanye especially.

    All of the theories are fascinating. Gorean teachings also have religious undertones as well.

    Well the man talking about the fallen ones is close..but it's the "one"..not "them"...and despite what the Bible says...the one.. just like Jesus didn't know he was the one...he evolves into his true self after reconnecting with his higher self after opening up...she is a messenger..and there is no devil or jesus..he's one and the same...Jesus was an alcoholic..and he opened up and didn't doubt it or question it...he just walked...and in the wilderness...he fought his Devils in a psychosis...and the miracles aren't miracles...we all can do miracles once you unlearn and believe you made in the makers image...pure power...pure light...thus reality then becomes very malleable...and the sheep are easy to herd and convince of anything

    About a young Woman who just MET E.T's power that is out of this world that has her ''believing'' that he is the one for her, making her feel very light and floating in the glowing by his ''Amazing'' presence in front of her to be taken out of this world.

    Ugh. You guys its about Russell Brand! He's from "another world" of drugs, rampant sex, and no inhibitions, Katy comes from an insanely conservative background. Russell is English, foreign. Katy is American. It's just a play on concepts. Also if you want to look at it a little more literally because foreign people (although most often illegal immigrants) are called Aliens here. She's not really singing about having sex with little green men, people. Come on. It's not that hard to figure out.

    I think this song is about love/sex. Now what about sex? How do you have sex? Well, here's the answer. You insert a penis into a vagina and have sexual intercourse. You could also masterbate with a pillow. Just put it under your penis/vagina and start humping it. It's VERY PLEASURESOME! Happy reading!!

    My interpretation of this song is that Katy is in love with an alien-like man. I believe this alien-like man is different from other people/humans which make him like an alien, therefore concludes why Katy is singing "Extraterrestrial" in many verses. I know many of you think it is Illuminati-related. It may, or it may not. No one can know for sure. But for those out there who do not think the Illuminati exist, why do you think that? It could exist, or it couldn't. But in my opinion, just think about it, hundreds of celebrity singers pose as a member of that society. Do you find it likely that a group of singers just found it funny to make up a devil-worshipping group called the "Illuminati" just to get more money? Just think about the likeliness of that. Now I'm not saying that this song is Illuminati-based but what I'm saying is that it could be true. This society could in fact exist, and this song could in fact be Illuminati-based. Thanks for reading! :)

    Come on this song is not about aliens. This song is about how she is in love with a sociopath/psychopath/antisocial/narcissist. A manipulative man who is incapable of real love. She is totally enamored with him. "Infect me with your poison" she knows he's different but she's lost her ability to see clearly. I helped my friend get out of a relationship like this. She's good now and can't even stand the sight of him anymore as a matter of fact her eyes are so wide open she sees right through him now and feels stupid. This song is perfect at expressing just how they can come into your life and try to snatch your soul.
