Susanne and Jutze are happy to present the video to their recent Song Fu entry. The challenge was to write a song about one of the 700 MOLE MEN listed in John Hodgman's second book, More Information Than You Require. Frankly, we had no previous knowledge about mole people. So please regard any deviation from the actual concept (like our mole re-enactment in this video) as artistic license.

QuickStopEntertainment.com's Song Fu is a songwriting contest and a jolly affair that lets you discover new original music off the beaten path. Votes for our song are appreciated. But please take some time and check out the other entries! You'll be surprised how diverse and entertaining they are!

423. Red

Walls to the left walls to the right
Shadows in the flickering light
At the front, at the back, everlasting night
No horizon in my sight

If only for a day, I could go another way

Dirt on my hands, dirt on my feet
Were shuffling on to the same old beat
Drops of wet, on my head
Here Im stuck, poor old Red

I see it in in my dreams
There is more to the ceiling than it seems... (on the other side)
Than it seems... (on the other side)
And when I make it to the other side
I will embrace the sunlight
And finally I will see roses of red

They call me Red, since I was a kid
The joke got old but I live with it
They talk of colours, nice and clean
When black is all theyve ever seen

If only I could spy a rainbow in the sky

Theres no dusk, theres no dawn
Time keeps marching on and on
Hanging down, stalactite
Growing upwards, stalagmite

Somewhere there is a ladder
The only thing that matters to me now (on the other side)
To me now... (on the other side)
And when I make it to the other side
I will embrace the sunlight
And finally I will see roses of red
