about

A nice slab of heavy with a solid groove.

The song is about the importance we seem to be placing on getting to Mars and other planets because we have wrecked this one. Why not invest in our future here.

The song is set from the perspective of the new wave of colonists trying to terraform the planet, but agonising over their mistakes, wishing they were home on the Blue planet and not the red. They are sitting around playing music and drinking, much like we do here. So very human, but now new Martians. Homesick Martian Blues.

lyrics

HOMESICK MARTIAN BLUES

ALL MY HEROES ARE DEAD, LIKE THE EARTH AND THE LIES, LEFT BEHIND WHEN WE LANDED.
ALL THE MARTIANS ARE GONE, PUT THE CROWN ON THE SON AND THE DAUGHTER THAT EDEN REJECTED.

THERES NO PARADISE,
LIKE WE’VE LEFT BEHIND,
THERES NO PARADISE.

THE RAIN HAS COME.
THE RAIN IS FALLING

ALL THE MUSIC IS HERE, CELEBRATE WITH A BEER,
SING SONGS ABOUT THE OLD LIFE,
SO FAR FROM THE SUN, COLOUR RED AND THE MOANS,
ITS LIKE A FOG ON THE BRAIN,
WE’VE GOT THE BLUES AGAIN

IM NO CRIMINAL
I CHOSE THIS NEW LIFE
ITS NO PARADISE
THERES NO PARADISE,
LIKE WE’VE LEFT BEHIND,
THERES NO PARADISE.


SO HERE WE ARE, SO FAR FROM HOME,
WEVE COME SO FAR, TO BE ALONE.
