Lyrics by Marty the Martian

In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue...
In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue...
Yelling "look what i can do, look what I can do!"
We all the know the story -- From that day forward
The idea of movement conjoined with the thought of glory
Every time we moved, we fought till gory
We stopped for nothing -- stop is boring
And so we never stopped adoring
The thought that just around the corner
Is the land of prosper
That’s adverse to foster, freeze for a moment
And sip from the straw first
See the liquid of truth travel to the jaw
It’s tough to chew on, we turned starboards to star bursts
The right side of the ship is a trip stripped of the physical,
Not literal -- it’s a movement intrinsic
The world isn’t round, it’s cylindrical
A tube of ideas -- the force centripetal
We move, these new ideas, they do not
Stop to think
Got to think
The brave new frontier on the logic brink
We’ll start moving forward when our daughters drink
From a thought process, not a hot topic
The answers are out there
But turn inside to find them
A certain kind of blind man
Will lead the way
He tells those street-seeking they should stop looking,
And start searching
In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue...
In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue...
In 2022 we’ll also take a journey
Without needing to leave --
So breathe!
Let’s start the learning,
And maybe see the stars are turning.
Let’s start the Journey…
