Matthew lives in an apartment in Queens
And works for the Gotham Gazette
He writes Sci-Fi novels about Space Marines
But no one has published them yet

On his day off he went to a museum
to see an exhibit from France
a flame burning bright for a millennium
He bathed in it’s strange radiance

He stares and wonders how
He stares and wonders how

Will he walk through the fire
and step into the flame
Will he journey into the unknown?

Will he sing with the choir
and join in the refrain
Will The Ferryman Take Him Home?
Will The Ferryman Take Him Home?

Nathan mines ore from a crater on Mars
to help build the generation ships
In 5 years they’ll leave for a faraway star
embark on their 100 year trip

to spread the flame far and wide
to spread the flame far and wide

So they can walk though the fire
and step into the flame
They can journey into the unknown

They can sing with the choir
And join in the refrain
When the ferryman takes them home
When the ferryman takes them home

John is the captain of the Starlight Queen
The biggest ship in the galaxy
He plots out a course on the navigation screen
heads off to Alpha Centauri

But the flame will call him home
The Flame will call him home

Will he walk through the fire
and step into the flame
Will he journey into the unknown?

Will he sing with the choir
and join in the refrain
Will The Ferryman Take Him Home?
Will The Ferryman Take Him Home?
