VERSE 1
Awoken from sleep colored dreams
Critical failure – alarm
Emergency meeting on the bridge
Red flashing lights – switched off to bring calm

Consensus is situations getting worse

Cartographer we need a miracle

VERSE 2
Put out the fires that still burn
Water runs deep – water runs dry
Power bleeding out switching off to conserve
Just drifting now like dust in a cosmic sea

Navigation offline time is the predator

CHORUS
Cartographer we need a miracle right now
We can only afford one more burn a trade for a home

Humanity relies we're all equals in our plight

2 of everything we needed to set up again
The earth was burned the sky turned red
History torched long since dead
Hanging lifeless in the void
We punched out and ran for the stars
