Lyrics
On Thursday the battle had begun
We are the fighters to save the sun
We take now bullshit from Venus or Mars
We blow them away with our electric guitars
A couple of light years ago we were hot
We zapped the x-men and left them to rot
We had some trouble on the asteroid belt
We had to pull back before we would melt

We are the rebels on diamond ships

We landed slowly on Earth’s green ground
Without a warning of might would be found
There was anarchy, depression, and rape
Brother versus brother over trivial bait
And so we scooted back down the road until we found our landing spot
And we got in our diamond ships and set a permanent course for home

It is a journey getting back home to Troy
A five year mission to defend or destroy
No drops of honey ever rain from the stars
We get what we take, never too near of too far

On our diamond ships where forever we must roam

This is Captain Freebird
The enemy x-men have tried to invade our land
Get ready to commence operations
Fire when ready! Fire when ready!

By Tuesday the battle was won
Our fearless fighters have defended the sun
We left the x-men on Venus and Mars
With nothing to protect them but electric guitars

We are the rebels on diamond ships of gold
No we can never be sold, no no no never be sold

Analysis: This was a total left turn musically, as a borrowed a Roland synthesizer from a friend for one night and in that one night recorded the music of four full songs, of which only this made the regular collection. You can tell I went a bit over-the-top with sound effects and such with this new toy and the lyrics were kind of juvenille with the intent of matching the “space age” feel of the synths.
