Lyrics:

The EXODUS of the CHILDREN

(Intro by a robotic cartoonist)
Many millennia ago
There was a peaceful, beautiful world
That world
Is now abandoned

(Verse 1)
Millenia ago, when Earth was set to die
And painful mass extinction stared us in the eye
Ancient humanity in a final act of love
Swore to save the innocents and send them up above

(Pre-chorus)
Humanity's most selfless act
To keep their legacy intact
And save the lives of all the young ones

Out into space to a new world
All of the little boys and girls
Would save humanity from death by the sun

(Chorus)
The Exodus of the Children
The youngest race, sent into space when the sun grew dark
The Sacrifice of the Parents
To save their spawn, started a new dawn upon the Arks

(Verse)
Many years in cryostorage, the earth's children slept
As the myriad rockets sent them off into the depths
At last they landed on distant Muraga-Five
And there, they awoke, to rebuild and to thrive

(Lift-off sequence)
Alpha 5 9 we're cleared for launch in
5
4
3
2
1
We have liftoff

(Pre-Chorus)
Children rebuilt society
Innocently and mightily
Without the war and hatred plaguing Sol-III

But they never forgot the past
Or the parents that let them last
As they grew they remembered their history

(Chorus)
The Exodus of the Children
The youngest race, sent into space when the sun grew cold
The Sacrifice of the Parents
To save their spawn, started a new dawn, as legends told

(Solo? Solo!)

(Bridge)
Centuries onward
Humanity grew stronger
We've lasted longer
And farther on we'll saunter

It's history written
How Earth saved her children
So while we're living
Remember the brave men and women

(Pre-Chorus)
Humanity, it will live on
Look straight into a hopeful dawn
On our happy home, Muraga-Five

But as we live, lest we forget
The old world whose sun long has set
And the sacrifice that allowed us to survive

(Chorus)
The Exodus of the Children
The youngest race, sent into space when the sun was dying
The Sacrifice of the Parents
To save their spawn, started a new dawn, which is now thriving

(Outro by a robotic cartoonist)
The future is bright
And is always being written
God bless the children
And the future
Of Muraga-Five
[Exit]
