Lyrics

MONSTERS FROM PLANET EARTH (Mike Borok)

I've always been a sucker for the '50's sci-fi movies where aliens land and attempt to conquer the Earth. I was wondering what it would be like for some primitive, isolated tribe in, say, Afghanistan, to see the arrival of the modern military. It would feel like an invasion from outer space, I suspect.

Watch the sky
Someone is out there, they come by night
Their robot eyes
Can see in the dark and shoot laser light
Will they bring disease and radiation
Will they steal our souls?
Do they want our land?
Do they want our women?
Have they come to take control?

Hide your children, head for the hills
Run for all you're worth
We're being invaded
By monsters from planet Earth

They come in peace
They come with weapons, so do what they say
They speak English
They give orders - we obey
But we have sticks
And we have stones and we have faith
And we have time
And we have God to give us strength

So hide your children, head for the hills
Run for all you're worth
We're being invaded
By monsters from planet Earth

We have no white coat scientists
To find the monsters' weaknesses
We have no secret weapon
In this war of the worlds
Beneath their mighty metal claws
Our homes are turned to dust because
There is no secret weapon
In this war of the worlds
This is a war of the worlds
This is a war of the worlds

When they come tonight
Will they bring a rain of food or fire?
Or seductive words
To make us want what they desire?
And when they're gone
When they have flown back into space
We will go on
But what new monsters will take their place?

Hide your children, head for the hills
Run for all you're worth
We're being invaded
By monsters from planet Earth
Hide your children, head for the hills
Run for all you're worth
We're being invaded
By monsters from planet Earth
We're being invaded by monsters
