Mars Attacks

Album: American Psycho (1997)
  • Their eyes for many centuries
    Peered in from space
    Sincere the hope, their wise believed
    They could teach our race

    But yet on Mars, a darker side
    Like all things that God made
    Their tribe of war, would heed them not
    "Earth they must invade"

    The fire in the skies
    Them devastate the land
    The warlord chief commands

    The humans fight and die
    Our planet laid to waste
    Monsters invade the earth from space

    It was then, in our darkest hour
    When everything seemed lost
    The hearts of men would not concede
    No matter what the cost

    They forged a sword of sound and steel
    Upon the Martian doors
    The voice of war would thunder there
    And "Mars would be no more"

    The Martian cities fall
    The death of the warrior tribe
    Mars attacks, now their planet won't survive

    Their world turn into ash
    The terror on their face
    Mars explodes, cast out as rubble into space

    Whoa-oh, oh, oh
    Whoa-oh, oh, oh
    Mars Attacks: monsters invade the earth from space

    Whoa-oh, oh, oh
    Whoa-oh, oh, oh
    Whoa-oh, oh, oh Writer/s: DAVID CALABRESE, JERRY CAIAFA, MICHAEL C. EMANUEL, PAUL CAIAFA
