In the twilight
Shadows lengthen under forms
Of soldiers waiting in olive uniforms

Army of Mars
Under the stars
Looks to the skies
With glimmering eyes

Oo, alright
Say a prayer tonight
For the gentle ones
Crushed by Earthling guns

Fear of death
Dissolves with every passing strain
Of music piped through electrodes in their brains

Army of Mars
Under the stars
Peacefully wait
For their violent fate

Oo, alright
Say a prayer tonight
For the people dulled
By music in their skulls

Boarding spaceships
Bound for Earth, they say a prayer for humans
Fraught with violence and care

Army of Mars
Fly through the stars
They'll be destroyed
They're making a point

Armies of Earth
Set right to work
Requisitioning tanks
The armies fill out their ranks

Army of Mars
Dead under cars
Shot in the streets
Their bodies, hamburger meat

Oo, alright
Say a prayer tonight
For the martyred ones
Their daughters and their sons

Oo, alright
Say a prayer tonight
