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
