I Wonder What It's Like On Mars

Story Behind The Song

An electronic driven track centred around the need to escape the 'rat race' and find some breathing space for mind and body to slow down and reflect on why life has to be quite so hectic and why we have to live our lives at such an unhealthy pace.... How far does someone have to go, to find that peace of mind?

Lyrics

Life is getting me down, stress is all around
Working crazy hours, romance is yet unfound.
Surely there's more purpose, to this game called life,
Need to take some time away, to find my peace of mind

NASA can you help me?

Space crew, I need you,
Space crew, take me with you,
I need to get, miles away
I wonder what it's like on Mars,
I feel I need a brand new start,
I wonder what it's like on Mars,
'Cos that's where I'm going

I can't get no satisfaction, money seems to talk,
Life just feels like one big sprint and boy I need to walk
Everytime I stroll my city, people pass me by,
No one ever stops to speak, or looks me in the eye

Houston, the problem is me

Space crew, I need you,
Space crew, take me with you,
I need to get, miles away
I wonder what it's like on Mars,
I feel I need a brand new start,
I wonder what it's like on Mars,
'Cos that's where I'm going

So I've reached the stage where, I can't take no more,
Walls are closing in on me and I'm heading for a fall,
I need space and lots of it, to open up mind,
Maybe when I get to Mars, it's kindness that I'll find.

Red planet, I'm on my way...

Space crew, I need you,
Space crew, take me with you,
I need to get, miles away
I wonder what it's like on Mars,
I feel I need a brand new start,
I wonder what it's like on Mars,
'Cos that's where I'm going

I wonder what it's like on Mars,
I need to go now....

Very unique sound and interesting story. I enjoyed the listen.
