Lyrics: The rebels keep coming - they try They’re fighting without god’s soul inside - with lifeless eyes With everything this war has taken from us My soldiers look at me with broken trust like they’ve already lost - i scream The sun is not the end oh no This war will kill us before then If we don’t make a stand right now my friends oh no Take pride don’t lose yourself yet, just hang on The pain will not stop me again I must keep fighting them until - this rebellion is dead With everything I’ve killed and lost She can’t understand why i can’t run away - i whisper The sun is not the end oh no This war will kill us before then If I don’t make a stand right now we’re dead my love Take pride don’t lose yourself yet, just hang on Wait for me, my love, please, i can’t stop this now Don’t turn away, I’m so close, our child will be safe, just hang on Because The sun is not the end oh no This war will kill us before then If we don’t make a stand right now my friends oh no Take pride don’t lose yourself yet, just hang on

Lyrics: Mechanized enemy - they’ve grown stronger than I’d ever believe Hysteria, empire collapsing, I send mine all to fight for nothing You can take away the final scar of my faith In this God forsaken place you tear apart the human race And I must rise up but I can’t save my love In the end the stars will send us all to hell Take my child, she is not well, she can’t grow up, in this hell, My love is a traitor, brainwashed, insane, And I’m the only one to blame You can take away the final scar of my faith In this God forsaken place you tear apart the human race And I must rise up but I can’t save my love In the end the stars will send us all to hell Science was right, stars die just like us The death of a giant, this all turns to dust Give us another world give us another time No one ever listened when we saw the signs Take me to another world, send us to another time We were never able to stop this, we all were blind You can take away the final scar of my faith In this God forsaken place you tear apart the human race And I must rise up but I can’t save my love In the end the stars will send us all to hell

Lyrics: Underneath this fortress ruin All is lost, I assume She sleeps so softly I’m tired too, tired of me She’d be better off alone This lab can never be a home I can’t take anymore I’ve lost the will to rise from this floor Want to sleep forevermore This lab, the answer lies within I take a whole syringe Close my eyes, I cringe I feel a change inside my chest, organs die Suddenly a spark ignites the rest, burns away the past The skin of failure melting off replaced, with metal from within it My brain expanding with a shock, I feel like God for a minute I rise from a pool of ash She cowers in the back My voice still familiar She calms and wonders

Lyrics: Have we become mechanized? Are we the only two survived? Have I become something I hate? Did my soul die? Don’t be afraid my little one it’s alright She said... Pray hard for the dead star Pray his soul has ascended up into God’s land Her eyes were bright like explosions in the sky And she smiled as I took her metal hand We walked out into a barren station We couldn’t feel the radiation Enemies were dead the light had shut them all down But all our comrades lay lifeless on the ground She said… Pray hard for the dead star Pray his soul has ascended up into God’s land Her eyes were bright like explosions in the sky And she smiled as I took her metal hand We wandered through the ruined world Looking for any signs of life Though the eyes of my little girl Made it hard to forget my love, my wife Suddenly, a figure on the horizon I pushed my little one behind She took my hand and she said “Daddy it’s alright” My love was standing there before us, mechanized She said… Pray hard for the dead star Pray his soul has ascended up into God’s land Her eyes were bright like explosions in the sky And she smiled as I took her metal hand

Lyrics: This dead world can’t sustain us anymore All that’s left are memories of war A life that’s a shade of ourselves And each other as we climb out of hell And I, I want to leave behind this place And we, we’ll redefine our race I need a new sun on my face… to wash over me Hear the silence as we fly through the endless space The journey ahead will be long and hard To survive we must heal each other’s scars This ship is just a means to an end And the destination m ay find us dead But I, I see a future that we make And we, we’ll give it all it takes And even though we aren’t the same beings as before We will adapt, we will evolve, we’ll love each other even more
