[Lyrics by Timo Kotipelto. Music by Matias Kupiainen]

[Computer:] Warning! Event horizon ahead. Warning!

Standing outside
In darkness my breath is steaming
The sky's open wide
I hear the silent screaming

Deep in the dark, somewhere in space
Spinning around, leaving no trace

Nothing escapes
And the boundary's been breached
All matter and shape
Destination's reached

A star dies, collapsing in its core
End of the journey, it won't be seen anymore

I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Light years away, there is no concern
A force of gravity, event horizon lies ahead

[Solo ? Matias / Duet / Jens / Duet]

[Computer:] Alert! Destination's reached

I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Light years away, there is no concern
A force of gravity, event horizon lies ahead

I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Light years away, there is no concern
A force of gravity, event horizon lies ahead

[Computer:] Warning! Imaginable impact. Please evacuate immediately.
Counting... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

    General CommentAn event horizon is a Black Hole. This song is about approaching a black hole, which means certain death if too close, although there are some theories that black holes lead to other universes. The "point of no return" means the point at which the black hole's gravitational pull is so strong, kt cannot be escaped.
