You might be a starship captain or an alien first mate
Or a smuggler with a heart of gold
You might be the misfit heroes standing up to face your fate
Where you find it in the black and cold

We have been them every one,
Where we stand beneath our sun
Gazing up into that never-ending sea

We know nothing's as it seems
For the pieces of our dreams
Will one day build the ship that sets us free

When the engines engage and the stars slip to sunward
Where Falcons take wing and Serenity flies
We will never give up, we will never surrender
While we sail that ship of dreams across the skies

We have felt the grav plates shudder when the compensator's jammed
We've been blinded on the sands of Dune
We have tasted mudder's milk, sung the song of Hugh Valland
We have walked upon the goddamn moon

It's been forty years and more
Since we heard the engines roar
And an Eagle took a world upon its flight

But through fire, frost and fears
Pain and politics and tears
Still the children of Apollo claim the night


When all hope has been lost
Raise your eyes
For no matter the cost
Nerds shall rise
They can take our names, take our games
Take our future
But they... can't take... the sky!
