Ayreon - Ride The Comet (01011001) Lyric Video

Forever have modified extremophilic bacteria (likely psychrophiles, which can withstand the freezing temperatures of space) to carry their DNA. They launch the bacteria into the comet, divert the comet's path, and entrust them with their future.

The diverted comet is sent into the path of the Universal Migrator, because Forever assume that a planet suitable for life will be found at the end. They think so because the Migrator Souls are born to create life throughout the universe.

LyricsEdit

(Jørn Lande:) Find your way home, little extremophiles
(Floor Jansen:) Fly, beloved sons
(Tom Englund:) Find your way home, donors of life
(Floor Jansen:) Fly, my chosen ones

(Jonas Renkse:) You're on your own, little extremophiles
(Floor Jansen:) Ride your frozen ark
(Bob Catley:) You're on your own, cleaving the skies
(Floor Jansen:) Ride into the dark

(Magali Luyten:)
Carry out our dangerous task, sail uncharted spheres
Live out our dreams, ride the comet
Journey on the Migrator trail, cross the new frontiers
Pass on our genes, ride the comet

(Jørn Lande:) You are the future, little extremophiles
(Floor Jansen:) Fly towards the sun
(Tom Englund:) You are the future, you know what to do
(Floor Jansen:) Fly, it has begun

(Magali Luyten:)
Carry out our dangerous task, sail uncharted spheres
Live out our dreams, ride the comet
Journey on the Migrator trail, cross the new frontiers
Pass on our genes, ride the comet
