lyrics

Who would have believed that in the year of our Lord 2017
Hot red people would come from Mars
To seduce and destructify the simple peoples of earth?
Failed pockets of resistance antagonised the alien invaders further
Causing the almost extinction of the human race

I remember a time before
Before she offered me wine
Looking back I should have seen
Her bright red crimson skin

She was part of an invasion force
Also, she had red horns
Now I think about it red teeth too
I can no longer blame the wine

Red is the colour of our blood left as a hazard on the floor
Hot red people from Mars destructify our world

It was time to retaliate
An expedition to Mars
Mars, the red, red planet
Full of hot red people

We were part of an invasion force
But we failed to find our foe
In our anger, we only saw red
Making it impossible to find them

Red is the colour of our blood left as a hazard on the floor
Hot red people from Mars destructify our world

I am lupine soldier now - my posting, Olympus Mons
I'll search the Tharsis region for the Red Riding Hoods
My disguise is that of an alluring human grandma
My nightdress is cumbersome, my disguise ineffective
I trip, my visor cracks, the icy world creeps in
I'll think of the hot red girl and what could have been
As my blurry vision fades, I hold on to a final thing:
If I had got to second base could I have been
The Martian king?

Red is the colour of our blood left as a hazard on the floor
Hot red people from Mars destructify our world
