"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 CommentOh, these Teenager of the Year songs are so great! I can't believe no on has written about them. I'll take on every one, here goes...

    This song is about the terraforming and colonization of Mars. They go from Red, to Green with struggling vegetation, to Blue, with actual seas and oceans they make by melting the ice caps. You can pair this song with Punk Rock City from The Cult of Ray to make a Mars duo. I'm sure there's a Pixies song about Mars to make it a trilogy...
