i hear you calling my name
‘cross the red desert planes
‘cross the crystallized refrain

on a sky ark
we sailed the ocean of black and stars
we choked on the habit of our cars
so we broke the orbit of the earth
and then we settled on Mars

we have colonized a new land
sowed the seeds with our hands
raised our young to stand tall and proud

you only get what you give
in this vast unforgiving place
you fight for the right to live

oh we haven’t changed a bit
moved ourselves around
moulded and paved the ground to suit our needs
inside we’re still weak

and corrupted
when we dry out what we have
it’s time to seek out more to grab
this never-ending quest
is bound to be our arrest
can’t settle for second-best
we settled on Mars
