Sturgill Simpson – Best Clockmaker On Mars lyrics
[Verse 1]
Wanna grow old in the mountain view
Wanna make babies 'til you say you're through
Warm, bare, and naked when you pull me through
Turn off the tv, there ain't nothin' new

[Chorus]
Gonna wake up every day and be the best clockmaker on Mars

[Verse 2]
Some days, I hate everything I am
But your love holds a mirror to me
Show me a love I can understand
Make sense of the world I see

[Chorus]
Gonna wake up every day and be the best clockmaker on Mars

[Verse 3]
Wanna grow old in the mountain view
Wanna make babies 'til you say you're through
Warm, bare, and naked when you pull me through
Turn off the tv, there ain't nothin' new

[Chorus]
Gonna wake up every day and be the best clockmaker on Mars
Gonna wake up every day and be the best clockmaker on Mars

    I can't possibly be sure without an interview or something confirming it, but I have to assume the title is a reference to Alan Moore's graphic novel, Watchmen. Wherein the character of Doctor Manhattan is the son of a watchmaker and the imagery of clockwork is woven throughout his part of the story, and makes allusions to the theological analogy of the watchmaker in regards to intelligent design of the universe. Doctor Manhattan retreats to the planet Mars to be away from humanity, despite his nigh-unlimited power, he prefers to be in a barren environment that he can control instead of the chaotic world of human society. He builds a great, clockwork castle on the Red Planet, he tries to bring his lover, Silk Specter, to the castle with him to keep her as part of his perfect, controlled world.

    The song doesn't seem to make any other references specifically to the character, but it does seem to express a similar desire to move out somewhere remote with his lover and live quietly in a place where the narrator can control his environment.
