Fields of Mars

Lyrics | Track Details

In the garden where he was cast out by the lord
Flames and Omni-directional sword
For he as ever failed to gather up the fruit
And thus was banished by his loot
He cantered aimlessly through endless
permutations of night
Seeking a purpose and the meaning of kin
And when it finally came to him
You could've mistook it for the meaning of sin
The women wish him well
Every time he cast off marching to hell
Now if you've never seen a terrible sight
Stroll the garden of earthly delight
Maybe we can make it right - someday I'll see
you
High above the Fields of Mars
He knelt down before the unholy mob - who
cried war is god
Gleaming outwardly with great pride - and
prepared to die
The women wish him well
Every time he cast off marching to hell
Now if you've never seen a terrible sight
Stroll the garden of earthly delight
Maybe we can make it right - someday I'll see
you
High above the Fields of Mars
Who cannot fight anymore
Will never love any less
That kid inside of murder
Must be committed
To live a life of hostility
Never asking what it means
When mother nation
Blood and religion
Sanction killing - upon the fields of mars
High above the Fields of Mars
