lyrics

Laying claim to a wasteland of a planet
A desert world on the edge of these stellar maps
Left alone ever since the empire fell
A band of mercs in a 50 year old piece of scrap
Flying free if the authorities don't find them first
Dawning of a new day and the sun's coming up fast

Just a band of thieves and rogues
Or freedom fighters fighting for a sacred code
Who's to say what's the honorable road
When history favors the strong and the bold

Salvation is light years away
Another time another place
Meteor showers and blood lust will reign
Until another empire is built on these graves
20 parsecs until we're out of range
Double back targets engaged
Front line of a new galactic age
Or a supernova and what's left in its wake

Hit the atmo and it's planet fall
Pray for mercy that the brakes don't fail us now
Touch down on a good forsaken rock in a desolate void
Engines off and the air lock's sealed
Open the hatch, new planet's revealed
Some come in peace
Some come to rape, pillage and steal

Salvation is light years away
Another time another place
Meteor showers and blood lust will reign
Until another empire is built on these graves
20 parsecs until we're out of range
Double back targets engaged
Front line of a new galactic age
Or a supernova and what's left in its wake

Lost in a celestial field
Where did the others go?
Where did our brothers go?
When did we lose our way?
An empire laid to waste, through atrophy and decay

Flung farther into the great unknown
Past all the charted worlds
Into Elysian Fields
A new beginning is beginning here
Like a star explodes in which we place all hope

Salvation is light years away
Another time another place
Meteor showers and blood lust will reign
Until another empire is built on these graves
20 parsecs until we're out of range
Double back targets engaged
Front line of a new galactic age
Or a supernova and what's left in its wake
Salvation is light years away
Another time another place
Meteor showers and blood lust will reign
Until another empire is built on these graves
20 parsecs until we're out of range
Double back targets engaged
Front line of a new galactic age
Or a supernova and what's left in its wake
