Story Overview Edit

This new planet isn't yet inhabitable, it will have to be terraformed. The humans will have to remain on board until it is ready. Human lives are too short, many fear they won't survive that long. They lament their fate; to be filled with such hope only to learn they won't live long enough to visit their new home. Andara looks out the window upon Acheron and Empyrean for the first time[1] with her daughter, Enyo. She thinks about when she said goodbye to her other daughter, Alithea, as she entered cryosleep. For some reason, Alithea hasn't awakened.

Lyrics Edit

Her frozen breath
Ignited by the distant sun
Omnipotent frozen embers
Suspended like the stars above
The cold steel beneath her feet
It triggers a haunting memory
The look in her child’s eyes
When she said her final goodbye

When given the chance
To evolve or advance
We retreat to the past
Praying for ghosts to guide our hand
Our lives far too short
Our minds far too cold
Our past buried in stone
Our world absent of hope

Outlast the danger
To be rewarded by wonder
Collide and assemble
Bound by beauty and cruelty
Destined to lose
So much we won't see

Until the day we are planet bound
In search of solid ground
We cope with shattered memories
Enduring simulated gravity

When given the chance
To evolve or advance
We retreat to the past
Praying for ghosts to guide our hand
Our lives far too short
Our minds far too cold
Our past buried in stone
Our world absent of hope

Outlast the danger
To be rewarded by wonder
Collide and assemble
Bound by beauty and cruelty
Destined to lose
So much we won't see x3
