"(The Night The Sky Cried) Tears Of Fire" as written by and John D Cronise Trivett Copley Wingo....
It was a relic of another time
Plundered from an ancient tomb
Wrought by forgotten arts
Inscribed with cryptic runes

They called us fierce marauders
Warp riders and guns for hire
Before the sky cried tears of fire

Looking out across the void
We beheld a fearsome sight
Two armadas arrayed before us
Preparing to unleash their might

The Lady kept her promise
We heard the sound of a cosmic choir
The night the sky cried tears of fire

This is the hour of the Phoenix
When all must be reborn in flame
And though they did not know it
Nothing could remain the same

The captain has his vengeance
Aw we drift through a sea of pyres
The stars will always remember
When the sky cried tears of fire

    My InterpretationBasically to me this song is the end of the story. The crew has become exceedingly notorious for the spacetime bending powers they've harnessed from The Chronomancer. They've probably committed all kinds of crimes and had cults centered around them etc and now the shit has finally hit the fan. Two huge intergalactic space powers have seized an opportunity to catch them and have assembled their space fleets right where The Sword is, and they're all going to blow the shit out of it. However, the second Chronomancer "kept her promise" and tears a hole in the universe through which The Sword can escape, hence the lines about "nothing can remain the same" and "This is the hour of the Phoenix when all must be reborn in flame" because now they're starting over in a whole new universe and they can never go back to the old one after fucking around for who knows how many thousands of years.
