  • Lyrics: We've come so far under this old star of oursWe've climbed through ash, cliff and gash and scaled this old faceplease don't let him goOlympus Mons won't you ever beYour face is drawn and pale, we eatas systems fail. Ask the reasons whyvolcanos in the skyRunning on a stone so close we grow alonediscuss panic and dread and mountains in our headsOlympus Mons won't you ever beThe air grows thinthe moon hangs in the sky like a closing eyeThe sky is dark and red tonightand I long to go home if I close my eyes ..The sky grows dimthe moons stare from the space with the hollow facethe soil is dark and red tonightand I long to go home if I close my eyes ..Tree on Martian soil and patterns of canalsWater streaming down a lava light canalIf I could get this helmet off I'd lay it on the sand and drink from river’s handOasis looks so grand - red camels in the sandA desert nomad stands at sleeping naiad’s hand Like Hylas I could swim to you and love you and forgetlove you and forgetthe summit beckons yet
