An Alien Planet

I can play your music box
Although it's quite unusual
We only play an instrument that is familiar to you
But not to me
 
That is the eleventh music box
Or just tenth
It is hard to keep track of
I can play your music box
Although it's quite unusual
 
When I come here from an alien planet
Can I choose my own path?
(The non-stop sound makes everything unfold) Do you
(The non-stop sound makes everything unfold) Know that
(The non-stop sound makes everything unfold) From others' perspective
(The non-stop sound makes everything unfold) Your planet is the alien one
(The non-stop sound makes everything unfold, the non-stop sound makes everything unfold)
(The non-stop sound makes everything unfold, the non-stop sound makes everything unfold)
 
When I come here from an alien planet
Can I follow these two paths?
Do you know, oh, do you know that
The similar may be in fact different
 
Thanks!
