Deathcry of a Race Lyrics
[President] It’s time to awaken, the journey’s almost done
The quest is over, a new one’s begun
And when we reach our destination, our lives won’t be the same
We’re on our own now and free of the ‘Frame

[Captain] We’re closing in on Sirrah’s halo
Behold the glow of our new sun
An arc of light, a cosmic rainbow
[Captain and Biologist]
But far beyond, buried in space
I hear the deathcry of a race

[Opposition leader] Alpha is shattered, their suffering is done
The trial is over and nobody’s won
We’ve got a brand new world at our disposal
This time we’ll do it right, we're starting over and no one will die!

[Captain] We’re closing in on Sirrah’s halo
Behold the glow of our new sun
An arc of light, a cosmic rainbow
[Captain and Biologist]
But far beyond, buried in space
I hear the deathcry of a race

[Preacher] وقال يجب ألا يكون هناك ضوء وكان هناك ضوء
English: “He said ‘let there be light’, and there was light” (Genesis 1:3)
[Counselor and Biologist]
Time halts as we yearn for the fallen, souls weep as we grieve for the dead
Hearts bleed as we cry our last goodbye, in our hearts they will never die

[Preacher] Fa kaala falyakon nur fa kena nur
English: “He said ‘let there be light’, and there was light” (Genesis 1:3)
[Counselor and Biologist]
Fire dies as we mourn for the perished, love drowns as we ache for the lost
Life stops as we cry our last goodbye, in our hearts they will never die

[Biologist] Ooooh, I can see our future star
[Opposition Leader] We’re closing in on Sirrah’s halo
[Biologist] I can feel the force within her heart
[Opposition Leader] Behold the glow of our new sun
[Biologist] I can feel her rays caress my skin
[Opposition Leader] An arc of light, a cosmic rainbow
[Biologist] I can feel her power draw me in
[Opposition Leader and Biologist]
But far beyond, buried in space
I hear the death cry of a race
