Our new world is so close
Mars has treasures we’re only just starting to find
Frozen mountains and crimson dust
Waiting for footprints that will not be mine

A hundred years to run the first tests
Another to raise the first dome
The Moon, then Mars, then Titan next
A lifetime to touch each new home

And I want it so much
Close my eyes, I can taste the Mars dust in the air
In the darkness, the space stations shimmer
In orbits that I will not share

But I’ll teach the student
Who’ll manage the factory
That tempers the steel
That makes colonies strong

And I’ll write the program
That runs the computer
That charts out the stars
Where our rockets belong

It will never get easy to wake from my dream
When the future I dream of is so far away

But I am willing to sacrifice
Something I don’t have
For something I won’t have
But somebody will someday…. somebody will someday

And it feels like a waste
All this working and waiting and battling time
And all for a kingdom that all of my efforts
Will never make mine

But brick by brick the Pyramids rose
With most hidden under the sand
So life by life the project grows
In ways I might not understand

I am voyaging too
We will need the foundation as much as the dome
For those worlds to come true

And I’ll clerk the office
That handles the funding
That raises the tower
That watches the sky

And I’ll staff the bookstore
That carries the journal
That sparks the idea
That makes solar sails fly

It takes so many sailors to conquer an ocean
And so many more when it’s light-years away

But I am willing to sacrifice
Something I don’t have
For something I won’t have
But somebody will someday… somebody will someday

It’s so easy to run
Hide away in my books, games, and fantasy plans
Let them call me a dreamer
Who can’t face reality’s grown-up demands

But if I love my fantasy worlds
It’s not fantasy love that I feel
And so much more I feel for this
The world that created them
World we create with them
One chance to make them all real

And I know we won’t stop
We’ve planned too many wonders for one little star
Though often the present
May seem too complacent to take us that far

But I’ll tell the story
And I’ll draw the picture
And I’ll sing the anthem
That banishes doubt

And host the convention
That summons the family
That carries the fire
That never burns out

There are so many chances to give up the journey
Especially when it’s so easy to stay

But I am willing to sacrifice
Something I don’t have
For something I won’t have
And not only me

We are willing to sacrifice
Something we don’t have
For something we won’t have
But somebody will… somebody will… somebody will someday
