  • They made me put all my things in a silver case
    Took my blood and my name and asked my age
    Told me all my friends were on their way
    When I'm just late in the game

    But oh, God
    I don't wanna go to Mars
    What kind of brainwashed idiot does?
    It's all a lab rat life in jars
    They branded the dream of ages
    I don't wanna go to Mars
    Be with me here and return to dust
    We can borrow your parents' car
    And take it to all our places

    They made this terrible thing look like a train
    There's something sweet in the air what I can't say
    Would I like a drink to calm the brain?
    Oh, please stay in the chairs

    But oh, God
    I don't wanna go to Mars
    What kind of brainwashed idiot does?
    It's all a lab rat life in jars
    They branded the dream of ages
    I don't wanna go to Mars
    Be with me here and return to dust
    We can borrow your parents' car
    And take it to all our places

    (I don't wanna go to Mars)
    (I don't wanna go to Mars)
    (I don't wanna go to Mars)
    (I don't want to)

    It's been another four years and not one birthday cake
    You sometimes sleep all day and never shake
    You could hide the abyss with a friend you hate
    Oh, I miss the news and change

    But oh, God
    I don't wanna go to Mars
    What kind of brainwashed idiot does?
    It's all a lab rat life in jars
    They branded the dream of ages
    I don't wanna go to Mars
    Be with me here and return to dust
    We can borrow your parents' car
    And take it to all our places

    (I don't wanna go to Mars)
    (I don't wanna go to Mars)
    (I don't wanna go to Mars)
    (I don't wanna go to Mars) Writer/s: Charles Cave, Harry McVeigh, Jack Lawrence-Brown
