PlotEdit

Moving further back in time to 1969, the Colonist relives the memories of his ancestor, Mr. Lucassen, who recalls watching the Moon Landing on television with his father when he was a child. The child's idealistic daydreams of space travel and the optimism for the future that watching the Moon Landing on television gives him is contrasted with the bitter reality of life in space of the Colonist in the future.

LyricsEdit

On an early summer morning, July '69
As I dream of the planets
I hear a voice softly whisper: 'son, it is time
It's happening soon'

It's a quarter to four now and he carries me down
To our place by the telly
I see lights on in houses all over town
For the man on the Moon

One small step for man
But a giant leap for mankind
The mighty Apollo prevailed
The Eagle has landed

I go back to my warm bed, back to my dreams
But not the one of the planets
I decided this morning I don't want to be
The man on the Moon

As I lie here in this cold tank, living a dream
I'm the last on the planets
I decided this morning I don't want to be
The man on Mars
