Will you fear the darkness, will you fear the night will you chase the star-born, will you sleep tonight? The darkness, your hunger, the nine billion names of god Your heaven, your lifetime, the nine billion names of god take you away! Now you are forgiven, now you are the light, now you are unholy, now you are divine The darkness, your hunger, the nine billion names of god Your heaven, your lifetime, the nine billion names of god take you away! The darkness, your hunger, the nine billion names of god Your heaven, your lifetime, the nine billion names of god The darkness, your hunger, the nine billion names of god Your heaven, your lifetime, the nine billion names of god Look to the horizon, the stars are gonna die the light is fading out tonight, the light is gonna die.

Tell no lies, don’t tell the truth Realise you’re going through All these lightyears away Time has lost its grip on you Now what are you gonna do As you fall through the maze Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all as the night surrounds you? Life is just a cosmic dream, Turn around you know you’ve been Chasing ghosts in the shade One last breath before you sleep In the sky you fall beneath Now you’re slipping away Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all as the night surrounds you? Never-ending space, never-ending time Never-ending space, all you see is your mind Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all as the night surrounds you?

If you were taken through the skies and outa view far beyond the starlight I would climb to you you're falling through the dark You're never coming back somewhere beyond the stars Driving down the road, crawling the A17 or through event horizons - makes no difference to me If the sky refused to part and the earth refused to move I don't care for all those rules I'd be coming right for you If You're falling outa sight If you're light-years far from home I would fight against the night just to be right where you are If you never understand If you ever wonder why you will feel it in my heart you will see it in my eyes And if I’m flying blindly and I don’t know where to go Sirens from the deep sing me songs I used to know calls to me, calls to you sings of all the things you do now i'm following that tune and i'm on my way to you If You're falling outa sight If you're light-years far from home I would fight against the night just to be right where you are If you never understand If you ever wonder why you will feel it in my heart you will see it in my eyes If You're falling outa sight If you're lightyears far from home I would sail into the night just to be right where you are If you never understand If you ever wonder why you will feel it in my heart you will see it in my eyes

Somewhere over head, breaches the horizon, Comes forth the savages of time Somewhere far below lays a frozen people, Drowned by the flooding of the light But you wish you want to die, All the darkness in your eyes, And your brain Now you’ve seen this all before Devils knocking at your door, For the orphans of the sky, The orphans of the sky, Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night, The orphans of the sky, Now you want to see, Now you want to hear, Sounds that have echoed long ago, All this make believe, All the time you suffered, Clinging on to what you used to know, But it tricks you in the end, Puts the key back in your hand, again, Never meant to fade away, But the darkness will betray For the orphans of the sky, The orphans of the sky, Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night, The orphans of the sky, For the orphans of the sky, The orphans of the sky, Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night, The orphans of the sky, The orphans of the sky, The orphans of the sky, Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night, The orphans of the sky.

Welcome to a time less travelled No-one sees the borders of this space Welcome to your mind unravelled It’s the dying embers of your brain You say you want it all, but you leave it all behind The stars will shine above, a life you left once real Farewell to the sunlight’s cradle Blackness is the mask upon your face Farewell to your life unstable Time a broken arrow you now chase You say you want it all, but you leave it all behind The stars will shine above, a life you left once real Universal wanderer from a place that is not real The silence of the end of time is all I want to feel The captain of the vessel; captured now in time The stowaway, beneath the deck; a prisoner to his mind Quantum memories; a mind torn apart Quantum memories; aligned are the stars All you’ve ever been; relived now as one Quantum memories; a gift from the child of the Sun Prophet of the broken skies; a torment of the soul Torn horizons, ancient eyes that watch you fall below The keeper of the secret; sentenced now to die Night surrounds you, fear it all, and let it fall behind Quantum memories; a mind torn apart Quantum memories; aligned are the stars All you’ve ever been; relived now as one Quantum memories; a gift from the child of the Sun

Look at me now, the sins of the crown, All the paths you have made are the tears of the grave Take me home It’s easy now to see the suffering and pain, It’s easy now to see the world’s so far away And Every time I can see it I just close my eyes It seems to be the end of time. Fire in the sky, screams in the night, Is the future we crave the future we've made? What do you see? It’s easy now to see the suffering and pain, It’s easy now to see the world’s so far away And Every time I can see it I just close my eyes It seems to be the end of time. Woah!!! I’m 17 and I’m still waiting for the energy to fade away, I’m 99 and I’m still sure that the universe was born today, And all at once I see through time and another world falls to decay, Another day in the life of the Universal Wanderer today. Woah!!! Look at me now, look at me now Look at me now, look at me now What do you see? What do you see? Look at me now, look at me now - It's make believe Look at me now, look at me now - What do you see Look at me now, look at me now - It's make believe Look at me now - what do you see? It’s easy now to see the suffering and pain, It’s easy now to see the world’s so far away And every time I can see it I just close my eyes It seems to be the end of time.

Huddled in a doorway, Never seems to get much warmer, As the night begins to take you You know the stars die, as you keep crawling through the Nexus, Seeking shadows, stealing time beyond the nightfall, Before the sun comes down. Echoes on the wind, Time for you to sing, Fade away, let the tears roll down your face, Now your wondering, what the night shall bring, Fade away let the tears roll down our face, And the nexus slips away into your brain. Turning un-commanded, Through a single coloured canvas, As the dark begins to blind you, It’s just a matter of time, Before your trapped inside the nexus, Chasing echoes of the life you leave behind you, And now the sands run out. Echoes on the wind, Time for you to sing, Fade away, let the tears roll down your face, Now your wondering, what the night shall bring, Fade away let the tears roll down our face, And the nexus slips away into your brain.

Snow lies like a blanket, Frost covers every leaf, Winter is here to stay Or so we believe Night draws in around us, Ice hangs from every tree, Winter will fall upon us Or so we believe Cold seeps all around us Fire we never shall see, Winter has taken a grip here Or so we believe Wolf loose on the hunt now, Prey, lock doors in fear, Winter has fallen on us No sunlight welcome here.

Time has come on this hallowed day, All the voices I here all the passion play, And I do it all for you, all the little things you do, I have seen in your eyes, I have seen deep inside, But the battle has led me to you, I walked the fields of the dead in my sleep, All the while I hear cries on the wind, I will die in my boots should I fall on the noose, When the fields run red in the morning, And I don’t know why you don’t fall this way, And the tears I cry will be lost in the rain, When you look me in the eye, And you say it’s time to die, I have seen ships ablaze, As we open the gate, But the fire that burned was inside I walked the fields of the dead in my sleep, All the while I hear cries on the wind, I will die in my boots should I fall on the noose, When the fields run red in the morning, I walked the fields of the dead in my sleep, All the while I hear cries on the wind, I will die in my boots should I fall on the noose, When the fields run red in the morning, I walked the fields of the dead in my sleep, All the while I hear cries on the wind, I will die in my boots should I fall on the noose, When the fields run red in the morning.

Why does all the darkness fade away, black ass all the ashes in your grave Well I have been through dark horizons, you don’t wanna be You seek the night, it’s coming back for me Why is all the darkness in your brain, when I read all your memories today. I’m somewhere deep within the visions, you don’t wanna see Where time unwinds to call you in your sleep And the wanderer goes south, Well he lived there long ago, now the stars begin to show And the wanderer goes south, There’s that demon in the sky, there’s that devil in disguise I just want to know just who you are, trapped between the devil and the dark Well I think it is time to go and I’m heading through the door You can’t believe we’ve done this all before Drowning in the light beneath the sun, Drowning in the light beneath the sun, Now silent angels sing to me, but I’ve heard this song before It’s killing time to leave you wanting more The Darkness, your hunger the nine billion names of god The Darkness, your hunger the nine billion names of god Your Darkness, the hunger the nine billion names of god The Darkness, your hunger the nine billion names...

A Message to the Signal Decoder:

Dear Recruit,

Thank you once again for continuing to undertake scientific analysis of this unusual signal on our behalf.

As you well know, four Earth years ago we intercepted and deciphered a strange communication originating from an unknown vessel trapped in the mouth of a wormhole some time in the distant future.

Using Compact Disc Digital Audio, the source transmission was ecoded en-masse by members of the public participating in the Universal Wanderer Project. Now, after four years of decoding and analysing the signal, our scientists are finally able to release the transmission in it's entirety.

Preserving the integrity of the original signal, our frequency technicians have worked tirelessly to re-calibrate their devices from the best possible sources across all known dimensional rifts, roviding a vastly superior version of the strange message from the far side of the Universe.

We hope dearly that you are able to make full use of this new discovery. Perhaps in the fullness of time we may even be able to comprehend the secrets of its origin.

Regards,

William Drake, Lt. Comm.
Department of Cosmological Cryptology
NEXUS Deep Space Exploration Agency
