Song information

Keyboard player Scott Jason told Songfacts the track "Alien", "is the most personal song [to me] on the record. That song is about my brother. And my brother, he's a brilliant, brilliant, brilliant kid, a full scholarship to Berkeley, and he's gone through some pretty heavy stuff. So that song is really personal." [3]
