Once a world endless and free, horizons unbroken
Now a world of bounded frontiers, the elders have spoken
Our home

Once a world eternal and blue, floating, escaping
Now a world that'd blinding my view, shadows, shaping

Liquid eternity courses through our veins
Liquid eternity nourishes our brains
Liquid eternity a world that does not live
Liquid eternity a life that does not give

Once a world of fear and dismay, of fleeing and hiding
Now a world that's peaceful and safe, so caring and providing
Our home...

Would you prefer the pain and suffering we had?
Would you prefer to be impaired or even dead?
Would you prefer to live the life we've learned to dread?
Would you prefer to live a mortal life instead?

I'm losing my reason to live, the essence of life

But the system's got so much to give, or would you rather die?

I am losing my pride and my joy, my will to believe

Why would you go back and destroy all we have achieved?

    General Comment"Three of the Forevers (Jonas, Daniel and Bob Catley) remember how their homeworld was before the machines, before the progress ("Once a world, endless and free/eternal and blue/of fear and dismay"). A new Forever appears (Magali Luyten), remembering the "Liquid Eternity" in which they lived. Tom's Forever bumps into them and ask if they would prefer a mortal life, if they would prefer the pain, the peril, the life they've learned to dread. Jørn's Forever is losing his reason to live and Floor's ask if they want to destroy "All they have achieved"."
