[Damian Wilson:]
Mother Earth couldn't take no more
Sucked dry by humanity
In the end she lost a fight
She was never going to win

We set out for distant shores
Far across our galaxy
We're taking flight into the night
To the planets on the rim

A fire in the darkness
Far away from the Earth that Was
A quest for freedom in the "Verse
Seeking refuge from the earth

A fire in the darkness
A bright light on the edge of space
A desperate need to find our place
In the emptiness of space

[Damian Wilson:]

Out here on the fringe of space
The outskirts of society
We're suffering the aftermath
Of a cataclysmic war

Cast out by the human race
Nine outlaw pioneers
Making life in the outer worlds
Running from the law

A fire in the darkness
Far away from the Earth that Was
A quest for freedom in the "Verse
Seeking refuge from the earth

A fire in the darkness
A bright light on the edge of space
A desperate need to find our place
In the emptiness of space

[Russell Allen:]
I see a fire in the darkness
A ray of hope in a black forbidding night
I see a fire in the darkness
A spark of life in a cold and empty sky

A fire in the darkness
Far away from the Earth that Was
A quest for freedom in the "Verse
Seeking refuge from the earth

A fire in the darkness
A bright light on the edge of space
A desperate need to find our place
In the emptiness of space

A fire in the darkness
Far away from the Earth that Was
A quest for freedom in the "Verse
Seeking refuge from the earth

A fire in the darkness
A bright light on the edge of space
A desperate need to find our place
In the emptiness of space
