"Big Red" as written by and Charles Thompson....
Have you heard about big red?
They even bought a beebread rig
To help the flowers in mean space
They're trying to make that place green
Hope the trees will take away the storm

Don't know how this whole thing started
There was a crowd and then we parted
Don't know if I'll ever go back
It's a long way across all of this black

Here I am in my bucket today
In the middle
Here I am in my bucket today
In the middle

They got a mule they call Sal
Bulldozing up canal walls
They're gonna tap that icecap too
When they do they're gonna make that green map blue
The weather is finally getting warm
And the weather is really getting warm

Don't know how this whole thing started
There was a cloud and then it parted
Don't know if I'll ever go back
That's how I felt when I left that tarmac

Here I am in my bucket today
In the middle
Here I am in my bucket today
In the middle

    General CommentI think it’s about global warming making earth uninhabitable and us moving to mars.
    The title of the song Big Red is refering to mars.
    In the first verse it’s talking about trying to make mars livable. In the first chorus, it states "It’s a long way across all of this black Here I am in my bucket today in the middle."
    Space is very black, and very big. And by bucket he could mean the bucket seat of a space ship.
    Then in the second verse it talks about bulldozing and the ice caps being destroyed, and maybe turning the "green map blue" could mean the earth flooding. If the weather gets warm, the ice caps would melt.
    Then in the last chorus, it talks about leaving the tarmac. Which is often in airports.
