"Now recording transmission one of the SV Ex Humanus, upon desertion of Earth's gravitational field. The end is here. Humanity has been lost. The few survivors remaining on the planet have no hope, God has deserted us. There's nothing to live for anymore. We flee in attempt to find something more; heading towards the sun. All too concerned with the aesthetic, without regard for what really matters. What they don't understand, is that humanity is a disease. We're a virus. End of transmission."

Searching for the sunrise,
This vast ethereal plane I'm lost within
A sense of longing, a subterfuge,
Created in the cold.

Eyes open but I still cant see
Searching for purpose in what you call home
Lost in the void, create a new reality
Distract myself, from myself

Float away, we're heading towards destiny

Heart kept at bay, by a fear derived from within
On a course to nowhere, alter my path...
On a course to nowhere, alter my path...

Peering eyes of the universe calling my name,
Urging in conflicting tones

Confused and alone,
Weight of what feels like a thousand
Worlds on my shoulders


Knighted by the light of a thousand
A new blood burns in my veins,
Oh, it burns in my veins
Eyes wide set with purpose
