A long, long time ago
I can still remember how
The outdoors used to make me smile
And I knew if I got to share
That I could make all people care
And maybe they would spread it everywhere

But Future Fridays made me shiver
With every schoolstrike they’d deliver
Bad news on the social web
I couldn’t take one more step

I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about how politicians lied
Something touched me deep inside
The day the planet died

So,
Bye, bye, Mother Earth, goodbye
We are sorry we have killed you, just don’t ask us why
And them million species we have let them die
Singin’ this will be the day that we fly
This’ll be the day that we fly

Did you build the ship of hope
And do you have faith in kryo dope
If your captain tells you so?
Do you believe in space and stars?
Will you be safe from alien wars?
And can you teach me how to get to Mars?

Well, I know that you will not give up
Cause I saw you staring at that pup
You hid him under your shirt
Man, I know he was badly hurt
I was a crazy young mad activist
With a dangerous virus and a bloody fist
But I knew I was out of luck
The day the planet died
I started singin’

Bye, bye, Mother Earth, goodbye
We are sorry we have killed you, just don’t ask us why
And them million species we have let them die
Singin’ this will be the day that we fly
This’ll be the day that we fly

Der Originalsong “American Pie” von Donald ‘Don’ McLean wurde im Jahre 1971 veröffentlicht und seit damals viele, viele Male gecovert.

Ein Cover aus dem Jahre 2033 (Künstler unbekannt, jedoch in Umweltschützerkreisen vermutet. Nannte sich ‘DER Zauberfee’, zeigte sich aber nie) beinhaltete bereits den hier abgebildeten Songtext.

Im Jahre 2055 schuf die Band Astrovirus dann daraus die im Buch erwähnte Coverversion in gängigen Tesla-Beat-Rhythmen, wie sie u. a. im Lieblingsclub der Jugendlichen, dem ‘Kaleidoscope’ an der Tages- bzw. Nachtordnung sind.
