Lift off, brave explorers. Into the void you go.
To discover great new worlds, to expand the things we know
Lift off from our planet, escape from her firm grip.
and into the dense darkness, we here will watch you slip.
Go forth, space-age settlers, and expand the human race
From the shores of our home planet to the doorstep of deep space
The many worlds that you will know, that you will come to love
are anxiously awaiting you, in the starry skies above
But remember the great journeys made by many men before,
Their sails fluttering in the wind as they reached the foreign shore,
Imagine all that’s happened as a cause of voyages past,
And hoist off your own vessel, raise your own sails and mast.
