Buddy pleads his case, explains why he felt he had to run away.


I don’t want to rule the world, let alone two…
She was the beauty of the universe, so what could I do?

No one says no to her…
I had to go to her…

It may be wrong
What I have done
but I don’t belong
to anyone

I have to be
my own Martian.

Outer space is a cold and lonely place.

But if that's what it takes
to be free

Then I'd rather be alone

stuck out there on my own

as long as I'm me.

I have to be my own Martian.

Because a martian's got to do what a martian's got to do
and I have to be true to the martian who I am

I have to be my own Martian.
