Way too late to prevent their fall
Are they ready for the key to it all
The mystery solved, the answer to life
The final solution, a chance to survive

We can save this ill-fated race
Who are lost in the ocean of space
Show them the way to reverse their decline
Guide them back on a river of time

Follow the wave, speed up the flight
Slow down time, faster than light
You might let the forces take a giant leap
And the stream dive into the deep

We can save this ill-fated race
Who are lost in the ocean of space
Show them the way to reverse their decline
Guide them back on a river of time

Send back visions of war and decay.
Paradigms of fear in a world of dismay.
Shape the present, alter the past.
Create a new future, one that would last

We can save this ill-fated race
Who are lost in the ocean of space
Show them the way to reverse their decline
Guide them back on a river of time

    [Hansi Kürsch:] Follow the wave, speed up the flight
    [Bob Catley:] Slow down time, faster than light
