We had just signed on and we knew that we could save the world
We were on our way to the day that we’d be heroes
I said my goodbyes, people didn’t understand
Dried their eyes, wed see them in the promised land
Sacrifice, we knew it was the end for them, oh oh oh

On a journey away from home to find somewhere to call our own
Prolong the race somewhere in space
Cant say we didn’t try

Kept our spirits high, but we knew that we had time to kill
We believed in God and we knew that this was his will
I looked at the time, twelve o’ clock since months ago
Moving fast? With no light it’s hard to know
Did what we could not to let our sinking feelings grow oh oh oh

On a journey away from home the power’s blown and we’re alone
We look around without a sound
Can’t say we didn’t try

Ooh ooh ooh ooh they said it’s compromise
Ooh ooh ooh ooh did they know what we’d find?
Ooh ooh ooh ooh and as the radio died
Ooh ooh ooh ooh we knew that they had lied

And they’ll find us light years away
We’re on display frozen in space
They’ll bring us back, through seas of black
Can’t say we didn’t try, Cant say we didn’t try
