Lyrics:

Bill Nye:

We are at a time in history where we can change the world

What do we want to pass on to future generations?

That we just stayed here on Earth, that we didn’t look out

to find out where we come from and are we alone?

No!

We want to pass on this joy. This excitement.

Neil deGrasse Tyson:

When a nation dreams big, everything falls into place.

Nye:

Beyond the horizon

Over the next hill

That’s where we make discoveries

Tyson:

That’s the next frontier

Nye:

It is in us to look farther and deeper

It’s deep within us

That is why we are all here

Over the next hill, beyond the horizon

Tyson:

Dream of tomorrow

Long for the open seas

Call for this adventure

Dream big

Dream of tomorrow

Long for the open seas

Emily Lakdawalla:

There are lots of huge frozen worlds

Caught beyond Neptune

Huge frozen worlds

Seek out these other worlds

Hundreds of other worlds

Caught beyond Neptune

Seek out these other worlds

Tyson:

Audacious visions have the power to alter mindsets

To change assumptions about what is possible

[refrain]

Nye:

If we are to discover life on another world,

It will change the way everyone feels about what it is to be a living thing in the Cosmos.

Tyson:

Is a virus alive? Is crystal alive?

Does life need this, does life need liquid water?

Is a virus alive? Does life have metabolism?

Does life need, life need, life need, life need this?

Is a virus alive? Is crystal alive?

They’re asking these questions

Bill Nye:

Working together I claim we can

Change the world!

Carl Sagan:

There’s just a tremendously exciting prospect called solar sailing

And it works exactly as an ordinary sailboat does

It takes you to where you wanna go

It’s a whole new kind of idea

It travels on the wind from the sun

X2

Tyson:

These dreams prevail in the citizen’s ambitions.

It is time to set sail for the 21st Century.

[refrain]

Tyson:

Find your place in space

Space is vast and unexplored

And there’s a lot of work to do.
