Track Name: Amra, The Lion
My ship! It’s here!
It appears to still be functional
AMRA, THE LION the nameplate it still reads!
If the secret underdoor has not been obstructed
I can get inside and get out of this damn place!

I got it open, turned it on
And jammed their tracking system
Cracked the code to open up the air seal in the roof
The guards have been alerted, they’re coming down the hallway!
Weapons armed and locked and with a blast I’m in the sky!

Fly into the heavens! Escape from Delthon-7!
Amra, The Lion flies again into the stars!
Fly into the heavens! Escape from Delthon-7!
Amra, The Lion flies again!
Fly away!

Their ships are right behind me
I’m under heavy fire
Amra, The Lion’s shields are hit and losing power
If I could just control her to that jungle planet
Maybe I’ll feign death and finally get out of this place!

Fly into the heavens! Escape from Delthon-7!
Amra, The Lion is hit and going down!
He flew into the heavens, and escaped from Delthon-7!
Amra, The Lion’s final stand!
Fly away!
Track Name: The Sky Is Blue
The sky is blue and so am I
Happiness? I guess I’ll try
Five more hours and I’ll get a little sleep
Perhaps my dreams will be brighter today

I’ve been shot down and left for dead
A life worth living, so they said
Endless hours pass and all of it for naught
Frustration comes and tells my throat to scream
But that would only help me in a dream

Countless parsecs but I’ve lost track of the years
I hope I get to live again tomorrow
Lost track of my memories
I chased another dream
I know I’ll see your face again someday
I wouldn’t have it any other way

The sky grows dark and I don’t care
I know you’re looking at it from somewhere
Five more hours and I’ll need to be awake
Perhaps my luck will change again today

Countless parsecs but I’ve lost track of the years
I hope I get to live again tomorrow
Lost track of my memories
I chased another dream
I know I’ll see your face again someday
I wouldn’t have it any other way

Yesterday I truly thought I wrote my final entry
Now I understand that was a silly thing to say
I fought and I was able to escape from Delthon-7
And here I am today
