On Our continent three hundred thousand people die of starvation every day. Tell me-- why don't you send our continent the food and goods you send to the moon? That was the point of our political uprising. We may have been defeated in the African war, but we will get our message across--by force if necessary. Comet – Orbit

Caught in space alone and by myself One chance only left for me to live Dave my partner just died in his sleep Sliced by an asteroid's tiny piece I'm like a kite whose string's cut off Millions of kilometers from the birthplace of mankind A tiny spider walking along a huge web It's too early to give up on Earthians I'm Frank C. Borman, an astronaut Riding the maelstrom of solar wind Release when I face the sun

Colourful dreams, unending in unending slumber Somewhere beyond the solar system deep in space Faster than light how can I be still alive It's only my mind that's soaring through these endless galaxies On a distant planet, a small life, breathing its last, saw it all in an instant-- the vast universe, the shapes of other life forms... She had the same experience as every dying being in the universe, and every person sleeping in a hibernation capsule. She made her rendezvous. But there is no one to remember, no one to tell. The Milky Way, a magnificent river Lethe...

Amen! The Pope wants to send a mission to Mars But Mars just covers up this Faustian farce The Antithesis, enemy of who believes in Trinity And our Saviour Lord Jesus Christ The Black Morning Star is rising at last The final event 'fore the apocalypse starts But we won't timidly await the things to come No, we will face the great deceiver eye for an eye! Lucifer!

Then i saw it. Those things mimicked the appearance of strong creatures. If a stronger predator came along, then those things changed as well. I couldn't forgive it. Even if they were harmless creatures, I couldn't forgive them for taking Stella's face, her body. I'd kill every last of them. I should have realised then...! Even after it had breathed its last, this Stella didn't change its shape. Then it was me, they'd all become me! The same eyes were quietly staring at me...endlessly!

I was born on the moon I am growing old Three centuries passed And we leave soon Take you - children Take you - with us We are new generation Can't settle down Pushing across the sea of stars Our bane and boon Gene pool - old blood Ages - voyage Children of earth - you must not die Children of earth - you must be free under the sun on days and stars in the night Solo: Vasari

What am I? For what reason do I exist here? So many little beings - swift and free. Do they know what they are? A complex and strange flavour. I will wait eternally...

Stars in the night Shining like love so bright Lazarus, oh Lazarus I've made it in time, I've made it in time

Now, it is still again. Endless space and infinite time are spreaded out before me. It is impossible for me to either slow down or return. My name is Rocket. I am Rocket. For you who should arrive on this planet 300 years from now, I leave this message. Brothers and sisters, my yet unborn brothers and sisters, travelling toward this, your new home, from somewhere in the darkness of space! Please accept this small gift. And please remember, your father, your mother, and I are with you.
