Hello, The Future! & Adam Sakellarides - Our Own Lines (VOY: Equinox)

from Song Trek by Adam Sakellarides

lyrics

It was a calculated risk, and I took it
A decision that had to be made
‘Twas an outcome I neither wanted nor chose
But it stayed
Yes it stayed

And now we are left with the pieces
The people, not pieces, that strayed
And all of us together are traveling as one
On our way
On our way

Every day I worry if we make the right choices
Or I wonder when we’ll cross our own line
Every day I know that I command all the decisions
That the choices we all make are mostly mine

Every day I must listen to a chorus of voices
The shoulders they rest on are mine
Every day I must lead us all to find life, not destroy it
We must not cross our own lines
Our own lines.

He was a captain like me and I promised him
I would offer a place to his crew
I would give them the honor he took from his ship
Which he knew
Yes, he knew

In the end he made his decision
One I don’t know if I could do
He offered his life for the lives that he took
As he flew
They all flew

Every day I worry if we make the right choices
Or I wonder when we’ll cross our own line
Every day I know that I command all the decisions
That the choices we all make are mostly mine

Every day I must listen to a chorus of voices
The shoulders they rest on are mine
Every day I must lead us all to find life, not destroy it
We must not cross our own lines
Our own lines.

So we hang up a sign in remembrance
So we share a meal and we move on
So we set our new course and we try to forget
That it’s gone
Yes, it’s gone

And Equinox isn’t that different
‘Cept I have more voices as guides
I promise that there will be a way home
That we’ll find
We shall find

Every day I worry if we make the right choices
Or I wonder when we’ll cross our own line
Every day I know that I command all the decisions
That the choices we all make are mostly mine

Every day I must listen to a chorus of voices
The shoulders they rest on are mine
Every day I must lead us all to find life, not destroy it
We must not cross our own lines
Our own lines.

And I know that whatever awaits us
I will act by the vows I have made
With the promises guiding my choices and
Showing the way
Our own way
