Mars (And Then We Came To The End)

lyrics

I expect you all know why we're here:
The rumors are wild, the city's full of fear,
And you're all hiding, hoping someone else will make this call.
But the sky is red and the ocean's lead
And if we don't fly we'll be long dead.
So for all the world, we've got a plan to save us all.

There's the moment, it's time to fly,
The chance to reach out and break the sky,
And we'll keep on trying til this race is done.
To a fruitless cause we've pledged it all,
And believe us now, we're sure we'll fall.
So it's bottoms up and spirits down and all the rest, my son.

What are we waiting for?
The sky's falling down,
And the captured recaptured are wearing us out,
And all of our memories are buried underground
What are we waiting for?
Why are we waiting around?

Can't you see how we're still shaking?
Can't you trust that we'll be taking
Every chance on this last remaining light in our sky?
So power up those engines, boys.
We're gonna do this now, it's our only choice.
So just let it go, let it go, let it all go by the wayside.

What are we waiting for?
The sky's falling down,
And the captured recaptured are wearing us out,
And all of our memories are buried underground
What are we waiting for?
Why are we waiting around?

Counting down to the final moments,
The moon is high, we need to own this.
Engines up and we're on our way.
5, 4, 3, 2...

What are we waiting for?
The sky's falling down,
And the captured recaptured are wearing us out,
And all of our memories are buried underground
What are we waiting for?
Why are we waiting around?
