Not of This Place

I'm alien
with human skin
I see your world
but don't fit in
I speak your words
You don't hear mine
I have no space
I'm out of time

The sea of them
I'm drowning in
A boat capsized
I'm lost within
I numb the pain
Here's not my home
but Hell's own gate

I need to leave
there's no way out
my silent scream
that muted shout
They try to make
me fit their mould
Their scattered lies
and truths untold

I pass a ship
once in a while
A signal trades
of our exile
Another alien
I see
I recognise
and they see me
Alas until
we find our home
we aliens
must sail alone
