Back From Mars Lyrics - Aqua

Review The Song (1)



Hey you, come with me, to a world of billionaires
See me, I'm da bomb, drinking champagne down at Pierre's

All the people that I'm meeting, are so friendly and perceiving
When they smile
Some are talking 'bout their feelings, and the stocks that they are dealing
So they cry, don't wanna say bye

I am coming back from Mars, where they drive in fancy cars
And the King he is okay, he is coming home today
I am coming back from Mars, where there are no cheap cigars
And Elvis has said, that I could be just like they are

Meet the stars - they're from Mars

Baby, it's glamour, throwing bills up in the air
Back off, I'm too hot, eat the oysters if you dare

Saying hi to Mister Shoe Shine, passes by a Missus Diva
Stop and stare
This is oh so just fantastic, I will live my life in plastic
sponsored links
Check the hair, and see what I wear

I am coming back from Mars, where they drive in fancy cars
And the King he is okay, he is coming home today
I am coming back from Mars, where there are no cheap cigars
And Elvis has said, that I could be just like they are

Meet the stars - they're from Mars

We are porno stars, sucking big cigars
We are the pop stars, we cannot play guitars

I am coming back from Mars, where they drive in fancy cars
And the King he is okay, he is coming home today
I am coming back from Mars, where there are no cheap cigars
And Elvis has said, that I could be just like they are

Meet the stars - they're from Mars

My Fav song | Reviewer: Jake C | 2/24/10

"Back from Mars" is not so much a song, but a mission statement.

On the surface, track 8 off the Aquarius album sounds like one's longing
for out of space travel to a land of glitter and glitz where everything is
happy and pleasant. The lyric, "All the people that I'm meeting, are so
friendly and perceiving" justifies this. The narrator has come back from
this place and wants to go back. Similar to going on vacation...when one
returns home, there is an immediate longing to go back. That is, to
continue to experience those feelings that can't be understood on our
planet. It is about longing and the human condition.

However, upon further listens, one begins to understand that this make
believe world is superficial. Instead of praising this glamourous place,
the narrator is being sarcastic. "This is oh so just fantastic, I will
live my life in plastic. Check the hair, and see what I wear." The
narrator has been swept up in this imaginary place, and doesn't like it.
It's a critique on Hollywood. We praise our movie and pop stars and put
them on this plateau. So-much-so that it is almost like they are on a
different planet then we are. "And Elvis has said, that I could be just
like they are." There is clearly no logic to this place, but everything on
the surface looks great...so we go along with it. It is a cautionary tale
about how this lifestyle can be perceived as outstanding, but when one
becomes part of this lifestyle, we see how shallow it actually is.

I personally feel the song is deeper than that. "Back from Mars" is not
about Hollywood. It's about ourselves. It's about epiphanies and
resolutions. 'Mars' is not Hollywood...it is our day-to-day lives. The
glamour and glitz is our daily agendas. We often go on 'autopilot' with
our daily routines, until one day, we realize how silly it. Upon the this
realization, we make an effort to go back to become grounded, to return to
our roots, to come "Back from Mars".

This is what a good song should sound like
