Story Overview Edit

The humans look out the window of their ship to see this new planet it found. They have survived their century-long journey in space. They're overcome with hope and a new outlook on the future. They will start fresh; Earth will be forgotten.

Story Details Edit

We are the children of Hyperion

Children of Hyperion, or, children of the sky[1]. The name for the people who will be born and live on the ship while Acheron is being terraformed.

Lyrics Edit

Arise, feeble relics of old earth
Those reborn upon the shoulders of gods
We are the children of Hyperion
Ashes of old earth

A century draped in black
A bloodline stained by tyrants and man
oh, how feeble and cruel
are hopes and dreams to begin again

We are the children of Hyperion
Fragments scattered beyond the sun

See this world
Free of man
How does it feel to abandon the dead?
A world left to rot
The world that we lost
Earth, betrayed by us all

We sailed upon endless waves
And set our eyes upon distant horizons
The ashes of old earth
Someday, will be forgotten

Dissent, within every breath
Fear guiding every step
Her eyes behold a world never seen before
A gem found in a sea of coal

Her body, reflecting the light
Cast by the distant horizon
Remember child
As our generation dies
The essence of life
Came from the Sky

We are the children of Hyperion
Fragments scattered beyond the sun

See this world
Free of man
How does it feel to abandon the dead
A world left to rot
The world that we lost
Earth, betrayed by us all

We sailed upon endless waves
And set our eyes upon distant horizons
The ashes of old earth
Someday, will be forgotten

See this world
Free of man
How does it feel to abandon the dead
A world left to rot
The world that we lost
Earth, betrayed by us all

We sailed upon endless waves
And set our eyes upon distant horizons
The ashes of old earth
Someday, will be forgotten X2
