Alien Blues Lyrics

Was it the best you ever had?
Was it the worst? You'd never know
I try to tell you what I think and play it off like it's a joke
Oh no, more surprises, guess it's like this
I'd do anything for you, Mrs....

    “ I only talk to dogs because they don't understand me
    My teeth are yellow, hello world
    Would you like me a little better if they were white like yours?
    I need to purge my urges, shame, shame, shame”

    Yellow teeth may highlight drug use of the speaker. “i need to purge my urges” of drug use and the “shame” is the aftermath

    In my personal opinion, I think its about being different in ways other people dont understand. I just thought of this because of the line, "My teeth are yellow, hello world! Would you like me a little better if they were white like yours?!". Like being shamed for being different.

    Much like the other interpretations of this song, it feels very much like a song a bout insecurity, mental illness and drug abuse of sorts: "Was it the best you ever had? Was it the worst?" is a saying or phrase which could be displaying uncertainty and in context of the song, insecurity- further lyrics such as "I'd do anything for you, Mrs. Highness," seems like the person is addicted to approval in a sense. This may sound wrong, but it for sure feels like the lyrics are making a connection between mental illness' relationship with common drug abuse and 'addiction'.

    "I only talk to dogs because they don't understand me" very much sounds like the person is only able to talk and 'vent' in a way to another living creature (a dog) that can feel emotion towards someone, but nonetheless, cannot understand them; the inability to communicate their feelings to another person has to do with the fact that they cannot socially understand their struggle, but more so because in addiction to approval and struggle with insecurity (and obviously in a literal sense of addictions to drugs, etc), they do not want to be shut out by the average ("normal") people who are the societal beings of ultimate judgement. This closely relates to the idea of mental illness portrayal and later in the lines "My teeth are yellow, hello world
    Would you like me a little better if they were white like yours? I need to purge my urges, shame, shame, shame”. These lines, once again, describe (possible) drug abuse and with context, assumed that drug abuse stemmed from the person's struggle with mental illness, they are upset in the way that their coping mechanism is not deemed 'okay' but any other strategy is seen in the same light, ultimately causing the person to struggle in getting back to the 'norm' of society if they are not given the chance to.

    I think this song is a representation of the creator's past/current struggle with mental health and possibly drug use. The lyrics:
    "I only talk to dogs because they don't understand me"

    Might refer to the inability to feel comfortable when talking about your feelings and thoughts.

    "My teeth are yellow"

    This might be a reference to drug usage and they decaying of your teeth. Your smile is on of the first things people notice about you so it makes sense that the next lines would be-

    "Hello, world. Would you like me better if they were white, like yours?"

    I think that Alien Blues might be about being Antisocial and mental health struggles, and it may just be me projecting onto the song, but some of these lines I really can't deny, like 'I only talk to dogs because they don't understand me,' describes an uncomfortability in communicating in others, and 'purge my urges, shame shame shame' feels a lot like intrusive thoughts. 'I need an alibi and somebody to blame' could probably interject some sort of themeing to the song, like maybe it's about a murder, and the rest of the album plays along with it, but honestly, I really think it's about instability. The other non-lyrical parts of the song seem like they support this too, in several parts throughout the song the singer in Vundabar starts singing 'na na na na' which kind of feels like spiraling, and towards the end the guitar gets intense and it feels like it's hung by a thread. -Crys

    I think the part where it says "I need to purge my urges, shame, shame, shame" is when someone feels insecure about something, or they are having some sort of mental breakdown, it makes them feel as if the only thing they can do it self harm. then when it say "I need an alibi, to justify, somebody to blame" it means that they don't want to take it all of themselves, and they wish they could have someone else to blame, or take it out on because of how much they've already taken on themselves.
