PlotEdit

There is a dire urge to change the Forever's current way of life, and return to a simpler life without machines. Without a plan, back to when survival could not be taken for granted, but every day was a gift. They come up with a plan which is explained in detail: Every million years, shooting stars pass by Planet Y. The Forever intend to alter the path of the comet and seed it with their DNA. A single member of Forever speaks up and states that they have no right to play god and create life. This is met with mixed feelings, but determination dominates any doubts. The Forever decide to go ahead with the plan.

LyricsEdit

The IncentiveEdit

[Forever ®]
There must be a way to enrich our lives
A way to awaken a nation that dies
There must be a way to revive our past
A way to break free from a world that won't last

[Forever Ω]
Take me back to when we lived another life
Back to when we had no plan
Take me back to when we struggled to survive
Back to when it all began

[Forever ®]
There must be a way to reverse history
A way to resume life, return to the sea
There must be a way to win back all we lost
A way to escape this, whatever the cost

The VisionEdit

[Forever ϟ]
Explore the vastness of space
Discover a wonderful place
Enter a brand new phase
Seed the world with a newborn race!

The ProcedureEdit

[Forever ⛧]
We have no choice, life is passing us by
We should rejoice, I say we should try

[Forever ❊]
Every million cycles, shooting stars rip our sky
We could divert them, on the day they pass us by

[Forever 🕈]
And on that shining day there is a way
For our DNA to reach a world to stay

[Forever Bird]
Do we have the right to create life?
And do we have the right to take it?
Can we decide who lives and dies?
Do you think they would even make it?

[Forever ⛧]
We have no choice, life is passing us by

[Forever ❊]
We'll plant our seeds
And guide them to their goal
We cannot fail, we have absolute control

[Forever 🕈]
And on that shining day there is a way
For our DNA to reach a world to stay

[Forever Bird]
Do we have the right to play gods?
I strongly feel I have to make a stance
Do you think we should take the odds?
Would they even stand a chance?
I don't think they ever will...
ever will... no...

Another LifeEdit

[Forever ®]
Take me back to when we lived another life
Back to when we had no plan
Take me back to when we struggled to survive
Back to when it all began

[Forever ❊]
Take us back to when we lived another life
Back to when we had no plan
Take us back to when we struggled to survive
Back to when it all began

[Forever Ω]
Take me back to when we lived another life
Back to when we had no plan
Take me back to when we struggled to survive
Back to when it all began

Newborn RaceEdit

[Forever Bird]
Explore the vastness of space
Discover a wonderful place
Enter a brand new phase
Seed a world with a newborn race!

The ConclusionEdit

[Forever ®]
We found a way to enrich our lives
A way to awaken the nation that dies
