My endless flight Lyrics

12. My endless flight
Some people would say that I’m gifted
While others would think I am cursed
‘Cause all of my lives end in violence
But every time I am reborn

My soul was bound
To this plane forever
By the strongest chain
That cannot be severed
Like a guinea pig for a force beyond our wildest dreams
I have crossed the ages but I never held my memories

Luca:
I am a warrior coming from the past
Dave:
But I’m living for today
Both:
And now I understand
The final part I have to play

My endless flight
Will shape a destiny for all of mankind
For every wight
My endless flight
Will carry me to prove that we got the right, and we're no blight

Gods of thunder descending on Earth
I will show you we're worth

Inside their temple of metal
While fires burn my whole being
I face the ghosts of my fears
I see the point in their game
Re-live all deaths I have suffered
It's not to test our boldness
And feel the worst man can give
It is to see where we aim

Will we end up destroying
All the good that we build?
Are we ready to change, or are we bound to repeat?

Through my eyes now they see
That despite all our flaws
There will always be those
Who will strive on and on
To make a better world

I'm tired and empty
And yet, somehow relieved
I feel their decision is fair
They've seen potential
In humanity
So... thus, I am finally free

They're returning all
To the state it was
Before their machines
Landed on the Earth
Guardians of the stars, they have deemed that our history
Can follow on, 'till we solve their big mystery

Gods of thunder descended on Earth
I have proven we're worth

(Storyline from the booklet)

Time, 2238 A.D.
Place, inside the Armageddon Machine

The strange chair starts to move. The shining aliens
move towards him, but Hal is not afraid. Their warm
presence is strangely reassuring, more than it is terrifying.
A telepathic link is established. Hal feels his whole
being burning. and finally understands the purpose of
his plight. He is under examination... He is under trial,
and it's not just his fate that hans in the balance, but
that of humanity as a whole. The Space Gods are, in
fact, the oldest race of the universe, and the, self-appointed
Guardians of the Stars. In order to protect
the peaceful development of the galactic community,
they keep under close watch every planet inhabited by
intelligent life forms. They do this by transforming a
single being into an immortal living recorder of historical
events. Then, if and when they have developed so
much that they're about to discover a technology to
travel great distances through the stars, thus becoming
a potential threat to the universe, the Space Gods come
back. Examining the memories of all lives lived by the
subject through their unique point of view, they decide
if their race can be allowed to grow further and leave
its home planet, or if it is too dangerous and must to
be confined. or destroyed.

So, through Hal's eyes, the aliens re-live the story of
the luunan race, its nobility and its wickedness, its best
and its worst. Ultimately, the Space Gods see the great
potential of humanity, its willingness to improve and
grow despite all its flaws, and decide that it can be
spared and allowed to discover hyperspace travel,
which they know is going to happen soon. Having
reached their verdict, the Space Gods are about to leave.
But before doing so. they revert all the damage caused
by their arrival. In the space of a few minutes. every
broken bridge is fixed, every collapsed building is rebuilt,
and everyone who was supposed to be injured,
even dead, reappears in perfect health.
