Yeah yeah

Sailing across the seas far and wide
We alone pierce the gloom of the night
We search for answers to riddles all this time
And with the sunset, our land fades from sight

Heading out (we are)
Far from home (and we)
Seek to conquer the great unknown (the great unknown)
Riding steadfast (on the)
Breath of God
We'll reach for the stars and beyond

Mission status: All systems go
Counting down the engine's light, ooh
Blazing progress, our beacon sears the skies
And with the moonset our planet fades from sight

Heading out (we are)
Far from home (and we)
Seek to conquer the great unknown (the great unknown)
Riding steadfast (on the)
Breath of God
We'll reach for the stars and beyond

Yeah yeah
Ride the night

Heading out (we are)
Far from home (and we)
Seek to conquer the great unknown (the great unknown)
Riding steadfast (on the)
Breath of God
We'll reach for the stars and beyond (Reach for the stars!)

Heading out (we are)
Far from home (and we)
Seek to conquer the great unknown

    General CommentThe song is on the Japanese release of the album The Odyssey as Track #10. It's exceedingly rare and I'm lucky to have an Mp3 copy of it.

    That said, great song, though I'm not quite sure how I interpret it yet, aside from how the chorus seems to akin it to a spaceship launch into space.

    General CommentThe song is indeed about space travel, which is an unusual topic for a Symphony X song. In fact, Michael Romeo stated that the reason the song was cut from the normal version of The Odyssey is because it didn't flow with the musical or lyrical content of the rest of the album.

    If you head to Symphony X's official website, you can download this song in mp3 format.

    Awesome solo section, too. The bass playing is amazing!
