Mother” is the last song in the anime Carole & Tuesday, featured on episode 24: A Change is Gonna Come. It was produced by Ertegun and performed by  Carole & Tuesday (Vo. Celeina Ann & Nai Br.XX), Angela (Vo. Alisa), Crystal (Vo. Lauren Dyson), Pyotr (Vo. J R Price), GGK (Vo. Madison McFerrin), Flora (Vo. Harlœ), Desmond (Vo. Marker Starling) and Lonesome Clarence (Vo. Mocky) in the Mars Immigration Memorial Hall, where Carole & Tuesday first gathered an audience.

The track has a theme of freedom, made to push back against the political decisions happening on Mars. Their performance was later known as “The Miraculous 7 Minutes”, a moment built since the first episode.

Carole & Tuesday spoke about the song’s concept in episode 23: Don’t Stop Believin':

C: I never met my mother, but “Mother, mom” doesn’t only refer to parents, it can also mean where we come from. For example, Earth and Mars are fighting right now, but we were all originated from Earth.

T: And even though we were born and raised in a different way, everyone was born because of a mother. Sometimes, she’ll embrace us softly. Sometimes, she’ll confine us.

C: All of that summons up what a “mother” is.

T: We were all born because of a mother.

C: I’m sure we were all born free.

Voices From Mars 「Mother」 歌詞


[Verse 1: Carole; Tuesdayboth]
Sometimes we are all afraid to fly
Freedom is a rocket in the sky
Take a leap of faith

'Cause there's no reason not to try
Let the stars be your guide
Let the love be your life

[Pre-Chorus: Angela; Crystal]
Take your soul
And let it shine
Across the universe
Let the stars align
When you're almost out of fight
Let your fire burn
Let your voice be heard
Singing

[Chorus: Everyone; Angela]
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you free me from my chains?
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you come show me the way?
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you free me from my chains?
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you come show me the way?
Mother, Mother, Mother

Won't you come show me the way?


[Verse 2: Pyotr; GGKLonesome Clarence]
It's easier to run than stand and fight
Freedom is the strength to make you right
Hope is all we have
But it's all worth the sacrifice
A million voices are strong
But together we are one

[Pre-Chorus: Flora; Desmond]
Take your soul
And let it shine
Across the universe
Let the stars align
When you're almost of fight
Let your fire burn
Let your voice be heard
Singing

[Chorus: Everyone; Tuesday]
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you free me from my chains?
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you come show me the way?
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you free me from my chains?
Mother, mother, mother
Won't you come show me the way?
Mother, Mother, Mother

Won't you come show me the way?


[Bridge: Crystal; Flora]
Together we can change the world
Together we're the missing piece
Mother, come and heal this Earth

Mother, you're the love we need

[Pre-Chorus: Carole; Tuesday]
Take your soul
And let it shine
Across the universe
Let the stars align
When you're almost out of fight
Let your fire burn
Let your voice be heard
Singing, oh-oh

[Chorus: Everyone]
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you free me from my chains?
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you come show me the way?
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you free me from my chains? (Hey, hey)
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you come show me the way?
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you free me from my chains?
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you come show me the way?
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you free me from my chains?
Mother, Mother, Mother
Won't you come show me the way?


[Post-Chorus: Angela; FloraTuesday]
Won't you, won't you free me, mother?
Show me the way
Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother
Mother

[Outro: Everyone]
Mother, Mother, Mother
