"The song came about after I got caught up in a Facebook argument about whether or not it's appropriate to say hello to people you pass on the street.  The argument was much more complicated but I just imagined a world in which nobody said anything to anyone on the streets, and for some reason the famous Austin mural "Hi, How Are You" by Daniel Johnston popped into my head.  I took some liberties with my martian however, giving it purple skin and very long arms" - Tom
