Lyrics:
Red
Red, the spark that travels across the skies
Red, the circle magnified in size
Blue, the sea and sky like prison walls
Red, the dusty wilderness still calls

  I see with perfect clarity
  it's red as rust, my destiny
  a distant destination brightly shone
  Gravity can't hold me down
  as green and blue turn red and brown
  I'll journey there and make that place my own
  and I'm never coming home

Red, my heart grown heavy as it strains
Red, the blood flows burdened in my veins
Black, the road through months of empty cold
Red, the destination's gentle hold

  (chorus)

Red, the mountain climbs beyond my reach
Red, the sand on endless miles of beach
Grey, the chariot that will take me there
Red, the fire that hurls it through the air

  I see with perfect clarity
  it's red as rust, my destiny
  a distant destination brightly shone
  Gravity can't hold me down
  as green and blue turn red and brown
  I've journeyed here to make this place my own
  and I'm never coming home
