Track Name: Waiting for the Fall
Hard to imagine, hard to believe
i've heard old stories of an earth at peace
on my horizon humanity explodes
some remain hopeful that i won't have to go, but...

world war is knocking at our door
and soon enough i won't be here anymore
waiting for the call
waiting for the fall
waiting...

and as the chosen one; a gift or curse, you decide
i'll find a brand new home to culture and colonize
i'm in an awkward space, it's like i won the lottery
from my extinction.

Should you have to leave this place
Take with you our human race
Be the light we wish we were
Godspeed you traveler

i know it's coming, our time is short
they call me captain of the Last Resort
they see a hero to carry out these plans
but i’m just escaping a wasteland

Should you have to leave this place
Take with you our human race
Be the light we wish we were
Godspeed you traveler

can't look them in the eye, can't look them in the eye
knowing they're gonna die, knowing they’re all gonna die
and i keep those feelings in
from my family and friends
‘cause i want to enjoy them while i have them
and life ticks day to day
or until the sirens say
Track Name: Sirens
Beyond the border they've all been enslaved
eager to plant their flags on our grave

can't stay immune to the wicked
all of the evil they wield
finally building momentum and
breaking the barrier shield

woke by a notion but i don't know what's wrong
smell of the war in the air is too strong

rumors and panic are spreading
breach is the word going 'round
i get the call and i realize
all our defenses just came crashing down

people to your battles stations
me to my ship
this is not a drill, this time

“10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.”

through the rearest window
my planet falls away
but not before i witness
their wicked weaponry
they don’t feel shame,
they don’t feel proud,
as they unleash
their mushroom cloud

the world is getting smaller
the world is getting smaller
the world is getting smaller
my world is getting smaller
Track Name: Remnant
How can you be homesick,
when you're all that's left of your home?
just remnants of some mankind
like driftwood thru space and time

don't know where this is going
i don't know where i'm supposed to be now
just remnants of some mankind
like driftwood thru space and time

am i trapped? did i escape?
don't know to mourn or celebrate
fucked by the fickle finger of fate

just remnants of some mankind
like driftwood thru space and time

“stasis chamber ready, begin hibernation sequence.”
Track Name: The Stasis Chamber
Will the answers come in sleep? so much unforeseen
as i make this astral leap, just as haunted by my dreams
and the vigilant faces of my home
mission incomplete, maybe a good thing

‘cause i've seen what we do when go to extremes
the rise and the fall
now it's all up to me to deem us a second chance
to start again

should be grateful i'm not dead, the last one of my kind
they never got inside my head, no implant in my spine
repeater ready to begin
as soon as i descend, but why should i bother

when i've seen what we do when go to extremes
the rise and the fall
now it's all up to me to deem us a second chance
to start again

i hear the scientists
i hear the passionates
i hear the masses saying
be the light that they wish they were
it's ringing through my mind
like an echo back in time
they count on me to shine
but this is too much to endure

an alien without a home, my planet disavowed
i've never truly been alone, the way that i am now
i could win or lose the human race
and i'm sinking like a stone, a million miles per second

i've seen what we do when go to extremes
the rise and the fall
now it's all up to me to deem us a second chance
to start again

“approaching destination, open stasis chamber.”

i got my mind on fire from all their fading faces
it's like a rush of horror waking up from stasis
gonna shake those feelings, get this mission back on track
i'm more determined than ever ‘cause there's no going back
no going back
Track Name: Momentum
A few decades older
and not a wrinkle of proof shows on my face
now days from arrival
i’ll do my best to make a home out of this place

like a child, all is new
now I embrace, what I must do
Mother Earth, and Father Time
have trusted me with all mankind

we saw the ending was coming
in war that no man could win
so while the whole world was fighting
we built the means to begin

struck with wonder
i’ve been hauling some mysterious machine
teaming with energy
these vitals are like none i’ve ever seen

like a seed, going to sow
feed it well, watch it grow
it gives way, to branch and bone
to all the sights and sounds of home

we saw the ending was coming
in war that no man could win
so while the whole world was fighting
we built the means to begin

all the passionates long dead
left a message and it read:
“Congratulations, you’re alive,
and so is the struggle to survive.”

all my faith, all restored
i’m not hopeless anymore
time has carved a humble soul
i’ll stay worthy of my goal

we saw the ending was coming
in war that no man could win
so while the whole world was dying
we built the means to begin
Track Name: Terminus
I see the blue dot in the distance
i can’t believe i’ve come this far
if my peers were still alive they’d be so proud that i’ve arrived
i feel them with me in the stars

creation station at destination
i weep for the view, all the green and blue
like home but different, i’m closing distance
and soon i’ll commence this landing sequence

all this space and all this time in my wake
what's done is done, i’m so relieved the Grand Escape, it ends today

i see the surface and slow the engines
i’m not alone nor am i saved
there’s a mean lump in my throat as i’m making my approach
i spot the flag of the enslaved

i can’t believe it, they beat me to it
i failed our gambit to take this planet
what can i do now? nowhere to touchdown
last chance for free man already ruined

all this space and all this time in my wake
what's done is done, i’m so relieved the Grand Escape, it ends today

attention captain of the last resort
we've waited years for your arrival
surrender now, and you'll survive, come take your place among the hive
or be exploded in the sky

i can't get away, fighting is suicide
panic is the only thing that's keeping me alive
cause there's no mission now, there's no paradise
i am failure incarnate of all their sacrifice

i scan the landscape all tattered and raped
i spot a fleet of ships and repeaters
they're planning to spread once this planet's dead
what have we become? where did this come from?

all this space and all this time in my wake
what's done is done, i’m still relieved the Grand Escape ended today
and if I'm meant to die then maybe I should try
to score a few points for humanity while I'm still alive
you won't assemble me into your war machine
to do to another world what you've done to me
Track Name: Nova
From out of nowhere their ships ascend
the welcome crew to escort me in
could set these engines to self destruct
up here in orbit it won't do much

but somewhere on the surface this ship could be the bomb
repenting our existence until everything is gone

this ship could cure that enslaved disease
if only i could get it up to speed
if this repeater didn’t slow me down
i’d drive this ship right into the ground

“defense protocol 3206 initiated.”
a conscious calculation

“detaching repeater.”
for self preservation

my jaw left open, can't find the words
no time to process what just occurred
that precious cargo drifts off in space
and soon to be the last of our race

a few more revolutions, nosedive through the atmosphere
i'll start the chain reaction to kill everything that's here

world war is knocking at my door again
feels like forever I've been traveling
and i've grown weary of living all alone
the last resort is going to take me home

i'll be the light they want
like a shining sun
i'll be the last to blink
will remain vigilant
i bet they've never seen a
suicidal supernova soldier
they never will again

fate, it may seem inhumane,
but someone has to end this pain
better dead than enslaved
when endless worlds are saved

i'll be the light they want
like a shining sun
i'll be the last to blink
will remain vigilant
i bet they've never seen a
suicidal supernova soldier
they never will again

my racing mind, my beating heart
my makeshift bomb, shaking apart
my homemade sun begins to shine
