lyrics

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
