about

Actually about the Mars 3 lander from Russia, which was the first lander to ever send back an image from another planet (even though the image wasn't that great).

lyrics

Red terrain clashes against the salmon sky
Parachuted oven drops from high
Transmit data -> alien world
Dust storm clouds the camera eye
Phobos!
Deimos!
Cast your sunken crater eye upon this wreckage baking in the cold sun
Blinded
50,000,000 miles away - cut off from Earth
Before the Vikings, before Mariners
Before the Yankees, we were here first
Blood of our fathers, rust soil of the land
Flag of the workers thrust in the sand
Labcoats calculate trajectory
Atmospheric pressure : gravity
Kruschev's shoe points at the sky
Footnote revisionist histori
