The earth Extinction:

Through their eyes we will see
With their hands we will create
In their world we will be free
With our minds we'll shape their fate

Now the die is cast, the first step taken
A glimmer of hope lights up our lives
Visions of the past, dreams forsaken
Forming right before our eyes
We're alive

Through their pain we'll learn to live
Remember all life has to give

Now the die is cast, the first step taken
A glimmer of hope lights up our lives
Visions of the past, dreams forsaken
Re-ignite the sparkle in our eyes
We're alive! So alive!

I see a planet, perfect for our needs
Behold our target, a world to plant our seeds

There must be life, first remove any trace of doubt!
They may all die, don't you think we should check it out?

We have no choice, we waited far too long
This is our planet, this is where they belong

We may regret this, is this the way it's supposed to be?
A cold execution, a mindless act of cruelty!

In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our future lies
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our hopes will rise

In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our future lies
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our hopes will rise

I see mainly reptiles, a lower form of intelligence
Mere brainless creatures with no demonstrable sentience

What makes us superior, we did not do so great ourselves!
A dying race, imprisoned in restricted shells

In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our future lies
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our hopes will rise

In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our future lies
In the World of Tomorrow Dreams, our hopes will rise

And as the smoke slowly rises
Our planet's bare and cold
But as the black sky brightens
A wondrous world unfolds

We're at the dawn of a new age
As we hear the final cries
Ready to enter the next stage
From the ashes we will rise

And as the smoke slowly rises
Our planet's bare and cold
But as the black sky brightens
A wondrous world unfolds

We're at the dawn of a new age
As we hear the final cries
Ready to enter the next stage
From the ashes we will rise!

Now the die is cast, the first step taken
A glimmer of hope lights up our lives
Visions of the past, dreams forsaken
Re-ignite the sparkle in our eyes
We are alive
