Lyrics

No one would have believed,
In the last years of the nineteenth century,
That human affairs
Were being watched
From the timeless worlds of space.

No one could have dreamed
We were being scrutinized,
As someone with a microscope
Studies creatures that swarm
And multiply in a drop of water.
Few men even considered
The possibility of life
On other planets
And yet, across the gulf of space,
Minds immeasurably superior to ours
Regarded this Earth with envious eyes,
And slowly
And surely,
They drew their plans
Against us.

At midnight
On the twelfth of August,
A huge mass of luminous gas
Erupted from Mars
And sped towards Earth.
Across two hundred million miles of void,
Invisibly hurtling towards us,
Came the first of the missiles
That were to bring so much calamity to Earth.
As I watched,
There was another jet of gas.
It was another missile,
Starting on its way.

And that's how it was
For the next ten nights.
A flare,
Spurting out from Mars -
Bright green,
Drawing a green mist behind it -
A beautiful,
But somehow disturbing sight.
Ogilvy, the astronomer,
Assured me we were in no danger.
He was convinced
There could be no living thing
On that remote,
Forbidding planet.

"The chances of anything
Coming from Mars
Are a million to one,"
He said.

"The chances of anything
Coming from Mars
Are a million to one -
But still they come!"

Then came the night
The first missile approached Earth.
It was thought to be an ordinary falling star,
But next day there was a huge crater
In the middle of the Common,
And Ogilvy came to examine what lay there:
A cylinder,
Thirty yards across,
Glowing hot...
And with faint sounds of movement
Coming from within.

Suddenly the top began moving,
Rotating,
Unscrewing,
And Ogilvy feared there was a man inside,
Trying to escape.
He rushed to the cylinder,
But the intense heat stopped him
before he could burn himself on the metal.

"The chances of anything
Coming from Mars
Are a million to one," he said.
"The chances of anything
Coming from Mars
Are a million to one -
But still they come!"

"Yes, the chances of anything
Coming from Mars
Are a million to one,"
He said.
"The chances of anything
Coming from Mars
Are a million to one -
But still they come!"

It seems totally incredible to me now
That everyone spent that evening
As though it were just like any other.

From the railway station
Came the sound of shunting trains,
Ringing and rumbling,
Softened almost into melody
By the distance.
It all seemed
So safe
And tranquil.
