Track 10 from 'Terminally Brave'

The Mothersphere takes control. The black clouds brought about by the mysterious blast begin to dissipate. The rebels stand in awe as sunlight fills the injured city. Children emerge from crumbling ruins, many of them reunited with their parents. The quietude however, is all too brief.

lyrics

Narrator
High, high in the sky
Black clouds, they slowly dissipate
Light rays, from the Sun
Cascade, restoring long lost faith

From under rock and stone
The children rise
Their faces black
Here in the glowing light
Time to reunite
And leave it all behind

They’ll walk a thousand miles
A thousand more
To find a place
To build a home
They'll start again
They’ll leave it all behind

A shape appears above, descending slowly. Clouds once again fill the sky, responding to their presence. The shape is a giant ship, encroaching upon the devastated city. Two strangers beam to the surface, armed with unfathomable weapons...

- Ship in the sky –

Narrator
Ship up high
Falling down
Dark returns
Nightmares call

Starr
Listen to me people
Gather all your strength
Time to fight for freedom
Until the bitter end

Strangers
End is now
End is now

Narrator
Light transports
Strangers down
Standing tall
Weapons out

Starr
Listen to me people
The tunnels underground
There within the darkness
We’ll give the run around

Strangers
Seek them out
Seek them out

- Back in the tunnels –

Narrator
Strangers follow cautiously
Too dark to run, too dark to see
Shadows disguising
Shadows distorting
Reality

A maze of tube-ways interlinked
A game of deadly hide and seek

Starr
Stay undercover
Stay out of danger
Wait here for me

Starr
Come to me you bastards
Come show me what you’re made of

Strangers
Just listen to that creature
Cunning in his madness

Starr
Come to me you bastards
You’ll never leave this dungeon

Strangers
Just try to find those children
Ignore the call of humans

Narrator
Deep within
Strangers lost

Starr retreats and turns to leave
Strangers tricked by voices echoing

Starr
Quick to the surface
We’ll head for the forest
There’s no time to waste

Narrator
Women and children under blackened skies
Heading for towering trees on distant plains
Strangers are calling
From the dark of the dungeons
Lost deep inside

City fading
Future changing
Forest haven
Tasting freedom

Mothersphere
Shakes her head

- End of days –

Planet shaking
Violent motion
Surface tension
Bleeding oceans

Starr
End is now
End is now

Narrator
They stare toward the dying sky
They stare beyond
They pray to god they ask him why
But god is gone
The world they knew it slips away
It fades to grey
They hold their nerve until the end
Terminally brave
