Sailing across a sea of blackness, stars and sky
left to the dogs, accepted fate, this is where I die
Spirit so rich, once filled with life has fallen from grace
It is I alone, at your behest in (space)

What if there was life to live
another place to get and give
another world to call my home
If only I could prove to them
that life for me won't have to end
You call on me, I'm the prophet of my destiny

Far from what I've seen
without strife
Far from where I've been
Breathe new life
Symbols of a life once loved and lost
I believe that with your strength I'll see
A shattered glass road, an ocean's distain, I will pick up the pieces, I am through with this pain

Never forget, never surrender to society's call
People moved on, they stopped believing I would conquer this all
My world decayed, I died again, but I will prevail
I'm on my own, I'll return to find you well

There is hope, a place to live
Where trees of life don't cease to give
I'm trying to save my life
A shot of blue comes into view
Good spirits I will take in lieu
You've answered me, I'm made my own prophecy
