Prelude 03:16
Verse 1 Look around and see Is this everything you want to be? Fate does not look bright Under this cold dying light We will fear the night Verse 2 Under these caves of steel Our lives keep turning the wheel We face the consequence of our past We know this can’t last Chorus Won’t you see the world how it is And stop believing in A past life long gone We don’t even know why You see the world how it is And stop believing in A past life long gone We don’t know why
Redshift 05:03
Verse 1 We look to the sky Everything is fading away Light years of blackness have passed Aeons of pain We are bound to die We wasted all those years of pray Now is the time to take action There’s hope to regain Verse 2 Something is calling Something is driving us to the end Embracing the darkness It’s leading to our new land. The clock is ticking, Without realizing our purpose. Think of our lives and meaning, Our loved ones existence. Chorus Searching for the dying light That will take us there Nothing will be so bright Dreams turn in despair Bridge Despair! Chorus x2
Verse 1 Conflicts reveal our true nature As every ideal turns into failure Prosper times are no more Cries are heard in this rampage and war Verse 2 We are so deeply blindfold Something greater is about to unfold Crowds whisper in distress The decision has been made We are going through Chorus Is anybody there for me? Is there any life for us? How many years we have to wait For our people to wipe this fate
Verse 1 All our lives are now gone. New ones will rise to atone. As we are looking through the window, Holding to a memory To overcome the skies. Verse 2 In hopeless days in misery We shed tears driven by gravity. Towards the promised fields Above the shiny waters And the greenest hills. Verso 3 Fueled by what we care the most We are flying on our engines’ thrust Propelled by our will and sorrow We now travel for a new tomorrow. For a new tomorrow Propelled by our will and sorrow (x2) We travel for a new tomorrow. Chorus Running to the unknown Leaving the darkest sun Hoping for a new dawn A brand new world redrawn Running to the unknown Leaving the darkest sun
Verse 1 The great cloud suddenly appears on our sight, We see the great giant brightening the night. As flashes become clearer we are growing weak, Gravity is tearing us until we become sick. Verse 2 This slingshot effect makes us think we’ll have a life. We have a place to go in this lightspeed flying hive. We grow a sickening desire to attain A new world that is free from agony and pain. Chorus Here we go In this slingshot dive The faster it pulls The sooner we arrive Here we are Ready to thrive A stunning power That keeps us alive
Verse 1 My quiet night is no more It’s time to fight this new war A new threat knocks at my door Bring down the walls on our way We’ll make it to a new day And heal the scars again Verse 2 Try to realize where we are. The abyss is getting near, We’re all invaded by fear. Together we must proceed We must plant the seed There’s no choice but to succeed Chorus It’s too late now to look back It’s too late now to forget It’s too late now to regret The reason why we’re now here, it’s too late. Bridge We must plant the seed There’s no choice but to succeed (Suddenly the death sneaks, Turbulence felt and fuel leaks. The journey must end quick.)
Verse 1 After so many years in the night For the first time we have a sight. We’re close but not yet. Might be the cause for regret, Or maybe sightings we won’t forget. We’re close but not yet. (Prepare for landing Approaching landing site) Verse 2 We’re the legacy of a past pride After many generations that lived and died We’re close but not yet. Memories of who we are Made us able to reach this far We’re close but not yet. Bridge We’re close but not yet. We’re close but not yet. Chorus A new sun is shining, Through a new cloudy sky, And a new day is rising Through a new cloudy sky, But we will remember What we have lived But we will remember What we have lived far from home
Verse 1 Another reason has brought us to the past: Memories are so deep and vast And we are… Verse 2 Another season passes through our eyes But the ghosts keep shading the skies Time now to fill our new place with hope, And seeing life through the telescope. And we are… Chorus Under our brightest sun We remember what has been done All those years have passed away Darkness turns into a new day
Verse 1 How could we have been so wrong? Consequences are so strong. Our new home seems not to be That promised land we wanted to know. Oh, our chances seem so low Days go by and life does not fit in We tried so hard to strive and to begin Verse 2 We sailed right into our extinction After all this time we failed the mission This wasteland now holds Chorus The songs of tomorrow Are made of today’s tears and sorrow. The chants of the future will echo in the stars No fairy tale will wipe out these scars. We need a new beginning.
Verse 1 I am the one Who left my own land Through the void and against The darkest omens After all these years Dreams were paid with tears And after all the struggle we are Verse 2 I wander in loneliness Through this endless nothingness The sorrow of the regress After all that we have passed (The end is approaching fast After we arrived at last) Bridge For so many years of darkness No one ever heard a sound Chances give rise to a new hope A new humanity Is rising constantly Chorus Anywhere that I roam Nothing is all I can see Growing the seed is the key This is nothing like our home And nothing is all I can see This is all that's left to be. Verse 3 My homeland. My pride. My two worlds now collide. The shadows moved on. With me, by my side. If the dusk we’re now on, Is the same that we ran of The sun won’t shine.


This is the untold story of our ancestry. A painful journey of survival in the majesty of cosmos, but also a delicate introspective about the human nature. When these two worlds collide, something new emerges. Hope, a mission and a destination.
