In man's last hope of survival, a life boat space craft, the CV-FLT1 is on a one way mission into deep space. It's mission: the final chance to seed the galaxy. Succeed and save the human species, fail and all of humanity is extinguished.

lyrics

10 tons of thrust
too much is never enough
No matter how fast we go
its way to slow
In speed, we trust

Its light speed of bust
Too much is never enough
No matter how fast we go
its way to slow
In speed we trust

Resting on the launch pad site
Staring through the clouds
Seconds from now we’ll be in flight
beginning the count down

We’re moving through the atmosphere
No longer gravity bound
Heading towards the stratosphere
at the speed of sound

Into space a new frontier
the throttles open wide
Gauges giving the all clear
the speed is amplified

Instruments and green means go
G forces pin us back
Into the void in our new home
We’re never coming back

10 tons of thrust
too much is never enough
No matter how fast we go
its way to slow
In speed, we trust

Its light speed of bust
Too much is never enough
No matter how fast we go
its way to slow
In speed we trust

Acceleration always increasing
without a limit in sight
Engines pushing, never decreasing
a metal meteorite

All the burners at 100 percent
No time to waste
All components at their maximum rating
We disappear from site

As we’re cutting through space and time
the universe unfolds
It’s enough to blow one’s mind
as the fuel explodes

Gauges click off each light year
we leave it all behind
The future becomes crystal clear
for what we hope to find

10 tons of thrust
too much is never enough
No matter how fast we go
its way to slow
In speed, we trust

Its light speed of bust
Too much is never enough
No matter how fast we go
its way to slow
In speed we trust

We have got to propagate
The human race
We have got to populate
in outer space
There has got to be a future
for all mankind
All the war on earth is
Left behind

Deep into interstellar space
Out home no longer in sight
Looking forward to another place
The future is so bright

Escaping earth without a minute to spare
our home is poisoned and black
Foreboding doom hanging in the air
Nature is under attack

The next great war is always impending
Politicians flexing their might
It is sad to see it ending
We wish they could unite

We’ll spread the seed as far as we can
Humanities only hope
Fulfilling the prophecy of man
Into the kaleidoscope

10 tons of thrust
too much is never enough
No matter how fast we go
its way to slow
In speed, we trust

Its light speed of bust
Too much is never enough
No matter how fast we go
its way to slow
In speed we trust
