"Heroes" is a 1977 song by the British singer David Bowie (husband of Iman) and covered by British singer Peter Gabriel.

It was featured during the normal day at school portion of the Short Treks episode "Children of Mars".

The lyrics heard in the episode are as follows:

I, I wish you could swim
Like dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, will keep us together
We can beat them forever and ever
Oh we can be heroes just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive us away
We can be heroes just for one day
We can be us just for one day

I, I can remember
Standing, by the wall
And the guns shot above our heads
And we kissed as though nothing could fall

And the shame was on the other side
Oh, we can beat them for ever and ever
And we can be heroes just for one day
