You don’t know what they’re like
If they know that you’re alive
They’re gonna try to take away the secrets of your planet's life
I know you must be upset, you lost your family in a wreck
But you gotta listen

from Justin Bieber (Ft. Lil Wayne) – Backpack Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In the beginning of the song, you can hear reporters and interviewers talking about the crash of the spaceship. They also say they don’t know if there are any survivors so, obviously, they don’t know about Justin’s alien girl.

In this bridge he’s telling the girl about the media and about how cruel they can be, they spill secrets all over tabloids and make you feel like crap. Justin’s been through it all:

But, he’s trying to protect the girl. He doesn’t want her to end up like him. He’s trying to make her listen to him.
