I'll see if the power's still on on floral street
I'll run downtown. We'll get this all straightened out
Whoever was in that thing that came over, I don't think they want us to leave here.
It was all quiet on Maple Street until something shoots across the sky. The bright light and loud noise makes it very noticeable to the people. Everyone comes out of their houses and asks each other if they knew what that thing was.
We may need this
It's the monster
When some of the people on the street try to use their radios, phones, and electricity they won't work. When they go outside they learn their neighbor's things aren't working either. They are confused because they know a meteor wouldn't cause this.
Les Goodman's the one
It's Pete Van Horn
It's Charlie, He's the one
Where's that kid get him
Some of the men try to go to town, to ask why everything is happening. But one of the neighborhood boys named Tommy stops them. He tells them that the thing that they saw was aliens and that there might be impostors on Maple Street.
Just stop a few of their machines then you just sit back and watch the pattern
We'll go from one to the other and let them destroy themselves
When it gets dark everyone is very nervous. Everyone is expecting something terrible to happen. When they see a dark figure walking towards them they feel extremely scared. Charlie thinks that the person is dangerous so he shoots him.
When everyone runs toward the figure. They see that it was their neighbor who went to see if the power was working on a different street. This is the breaking point for everybody and they start blaming everyone around them. Nobody trust anyone.
Above the town, in a spaceship the two aliens who had been causing the whole entire thing discuss their plans. They want to conquer the Earth by making the people fight themselves. This shows that fear can make people do irrational things.
