  • Reconnaissance on the corner
    In the old world not so far
    First we took an aeroplane
    Then a boat to Zanzibar
    Queen cranking on the blaster
    And the Mercury did rise
    Came along where we all belonged
    You were yours, and I was mine

    Yeah, yeah
    Had to quick escape
    Had to quick escape
    Had to quick escape

    Crossed the border to Morocco
    Kashmir to Marrakesh
    The lengths we had to go to then
    To find a place Trump hadn't fucked up yet
    Living life on the back porch
    Lifting rocks to make a wage
    Every sunset paid attention to
    Not a starry night went to waste

    Had to quick escape
    Had to quick escape
    Had to quick escape

    And here we are, the red planet
    Craters cross the skyline
    A sleep sack in a bivouac
    And a Kerouac sense of time
    Oh, and we think about the old days
    Of green grass, sky and red wine
    Should've known, so fragile
    Avoided this one-way flight

    Had to quick escape
    Had to quick escape
    Had to quick escape
