Lyrics

Mars
Words and music by Carrie Ferguson

Green was the color of the grass that grew
Blue was the color where the sky birds flew
Fragrant and muddy how the river rolled
Wistful with longing are the stories told

And we’re up here on Mars, and they say
This time it’s a man’s world
And we count our lucky stars each day

They pulled out the water from beneath our feet
Forests to desserts and dust to eat
Dirty rain falls into a rising sea
On the sub-urban prairies ghosts of buffalo run free

And we’re up here on Mars, and they say
This time it’s a man’s world
And we count our lucky stars each day

They sold us hero legends, manifest destiny
We bought natural selection, greed and vanity
We traded all our days for this future of night
Recycled air and artificial light

And we’re up here on Mars, and they say
This time it’s a man’s world
And we count our lucky stars each day

And we’re up here on Mars, and they say
This time it’s a man’s world
And we count our lucky stars each day

Sing this song of sorrow, what is this we’ve finally lost
We are our own echo, proved our size and here’s the cost
Sing this song of sorrow
