​Engine Failure

This song is by System Shock and appears on the album Escape (2006).

Black is the colour of sorrow
Dark is the shade that guides our deepest fears
Shading the light of tomorrow
Bringing on forth an end in tears

Now in this moments of madness
Screaming souls in glorious fate
Lost in an eternal blackness
Restore the damage... before it's too late

The end of existence
Will drive us through the deep
The basis of our mission
The engines of a ship

Now... her engine fails
Now... our future pales

Black is the colour of sadness
Never before had it been so dark
Pray that there will be tomorrow
Pray that all this won't end in black

Feeding on enormous power
Displacing the order of heaven and earth
Left for the blast to devour
Are we just a dot in a molecular net?

The end of existence
Will drive us through the deep
The basis of our mission
The engines of a ship

Now... her engines fails
Now... our future pales

A chance... to save our lives!
Deny giving up - fight!
Sure there must be a chance to turn back
One final chance to change the course of our lives
All through the night the stars will shine on
Leading the way until we're back on earth

The stars will shine
Are we divine?
The stars will shine
Tearing this state of mind!
