I don't mind all these blatant stares
Cuz my words are like all you
People, meaningless
Spineless like the mime, imitates
The shrine, the shrine of college
Cretin bags, yeah come pick me a winner
Mr. A&R dinero thug

Used to be that fun was our
Main objective, but Mr. old school
Will tell the new fuel, they're
Igniting in the wrong direction
Cash crop clubs in the entertainment
Section

Do you know the red planet?
Do you know yourself?
Do do do company policy
Do do do all rights reserved
Do do do funds are pending
Do do do you're a sales figure

I don't mind if you take me there
In fact I want to see the stars
We'll take the plunge in a fabric boat
And we'll sink together, just sign my
Destiny and I will seal it forever

    General Commenti think this song is about the band trying to ignore greedy record company execs who try to sign them just to make more money... either that or its how they see mainstream artists who have already made the mistake in "selling-out" thats where the line "your a sales figure" comes in

    General Commenti think this song is about how they see many mainstream artists as "selling out" or doing it all for money. "Used to be that fun was our Main objective, but Mr. old school Will tell the new fuel, they're Igniting in the wrong direction" means that before it was all about having fun but now they make music for the wrong reasons such as making money... and now "your a sales figure"...

    General CommentI love how he says, "I don't mind if you take me there
    In fact I want to see the stars" and how he uses Mars as a big metaphor because it's out in space. Ahh, Cedric is just an amazing writer!

    My InterpretationI see this as a pessimistic song about the collapse of a person's dream whatever it may be. But it does have an anti-pop music feel to it sorta like Ticklish. Slightly off topic: Red Planet is a great name for a record company, in my opinion.
