Bush Plans Missions to the Moon, Mars
A newspaper burns in the sand and the headlines say "Man, this story's mad!"
Extra, extra, read all the bad news on the war for peace that everybody'll lose
The rise and fall of the last great empire, the sound of the whole caught on fire
The ruthless struggle, the desperate gamble, the game that left the whole world in shambles
The cheat, the lies, the alibis and the foolish atempt to conquer the skies
Lost in space, but what is it worth? The president just forgot about earth.
--Grandmaster Melle Mel and the Furious Five, "Beat Street Breakdown" (1984)
