John Grant & Midlake - ( I Wanna Go to) MARZ...
(One, two, three, four)

Bittersweet strawberry, marshmallow, butterscotch
Polar bear, cashew, dixieland, phosphate, chocolate
Lime, tuttifrutti, special raspberry, leave it to me
Three grace, Scotch lassie, cherry smash, lemon freeze

I wanna go to Marz
where green rivers flow
and your sweet sixteen
is waiting for you after the show

I wanna go to Marz
We'll meet the Gold Dust Twins tonight
You'll get your heart's desire
I will meet you under the lights

Golden champagne, juicy grapefruit, lucky Monday
High-school football, hot fudge, Buffalo, tulip sundae
Almond caramel frappé, pineapple, root beer
Black and white, Big Apple, Henry Ford, sweetheart, maple tear

I wanna go to Marz
where green rivers flow
and your sweet sixteen
is waiting for you after the show

I wanna go to Marz
You'll meet the Gold Dust Twins tonight
You'll get your heart's desire
I will meet you under the lights

    My InterpretationI think song is about the Illuminati and how they are trying to manipulate us through mind control conducted by the CIA, The Council on Foreign Relations, The Bilderberg Group, The Club of Rome, The Think Tank: Project for a New American Century, The Trilateral Commission, and through various forms of silent weapons against critical thinking, shaping and conditioning our minds to numbing down so we can continue to devaluate and degrade other human beings for the sole purpose of consuming alot of things we don't need, and to create shame and install fear in us to use a divide-and-conquer strategy so the powers that be can continue to build up a global totalitarian government and patent everything from the seeds we eat and tax every single use of any carbon in the universe, and just continue to practice their hierarchy through manipulating consensus through mass media and entertainment, and to continue to lull people into favoring all this instead of educating themselves, so they can achieve their final goal:

    Eat all the popcorn they want.

    My InterpretationFrom what I know about Grant, this seems to be about his teenage years growing up gay in a small town (Parker, CO to be exact). He contrasts the cloyingly sweet "malt shop" young, straight love scene with his real desire to "go to Marz" where "your sweet 16 is waiting for you after the show...where you'll get your heart's desire...(and) I will meet you under the lights." If you know the small town high school scene and its alienation, you can relate to this song, particularly if you are gay.
