about

Fly was written around 2014. The song is about humanity failing to advance space travel enough to escape a dying earth. As a last ditch effort to keep humanity going, we point a spaceship at the stars and simply send them off.

lyrics

(Verse 1)
The world hinders on the edge of days
And time splinters for the ones without a name

When the world is staring down the bringers of the next life
We'll see the truth hidden in the ashes of our lies

Cities crawling on their knees
Hysteria spreading like a disease
The once ignored will now be sought
People will face it like it or not

The giver of life is now your reaper
The cost, I can't imagine one steeper
Pray to your gods while you have the time
We both know your ignorance was your crime

(Chorus)
Fly
Go on and take to the sky
The burden you hold makes you divine
Our fears, our hopes, our essence with you must survive

We'll fly
Through cosmic seas and midnight sky
Without you our race would fade and die
Our planet is lost, our hopes and dreams take to the sky

(Verse 2)
See the stars, floating out in space
Our hope is out there, a chance for our race

We ignored the signs of what was coming
Now our people are lost, and left and dying

Cities crawling on their knees
Hysteria spreading like a disease
The once ignored will now be sought
People will face it like it or not

The giver of life is now your reaper
The cost, I can't imagine one steeper
Pray to your gods while you have the time
We both know your ignorance is your crime

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
So, where do we go?
Where do we fly?
So deep in the sky... will we die?

In search of new hope
Our planet's behind
Our futures alive
...so deep in the sky

(Chorus)
