Condemned to Live Lyrics
[Historian] I can't believe it really happened, it’s all slowly sinking in
I left behind a hopeless race to fight a war they cannot win

[Chemist] My petty life, it seems so trivial, a whole world is about to die
If all those billions fade away , then who am I... to stay alive

[Historian] Condemned to live, doomed to leave my world to die
[Chemist] The guilt weighs heavy on my mind
[Historian] Trapped in this void, deprived of dignity and joy
[Chemist] Their secret hopes and dreams destroyed

[Diplomat] We’re about to start our journey, so focus on what lies ahead
[Chemist] Liquid Eternity
[Diplomat] We have the chance to save our future, we’re alive, the past is dead
[Chemist] The Source will set us free
[Diplomat] We need to find a way to thrive there, preservation of our race
[Chemist] Liquid Eternity
[Diplomat] An alteration, gene mutation, transformation of our strain
[Chemist] The Source will set us free

[Counselor] Condemned to live, doomed to leave our world to die
The guilt weighs heavy on our mind
Trapped in this void, deprived of dignity and joy
Their secret hopes and dreams destroyed

[Opposition Leader] Condemned to live, doomed to leave our world to die
[Biologist] A fate we could not avoid
[Opposition Leader] The guilt weighs heavy on our minds
[Biologist] But we had no other choice
[Opposition Leader] Trapped in this void, deprived of joy
[Biologist] Now we need to think of ourselves
[Opposition Leader] Their secret hopes and dreams destroyed
[Biologist] We need to break out of this hell!
