"The Greater Good"

[First Officer:]
You could lay down, in this hole you dug
Just fade away into the red sand
But we all know, it's not who you are
You've come too far to be stranded on this star

But we're not here to take a prize
You know, just open up your eyes
The things that got us here have little weight

Perhaps a chance to be a man
You dream to be, you know you can
Come on, suit up and we won't let you fail

For the greater good
For the greater good
For the greater good
For the greater good

[Locomotive:]
I hear what you're saying
You know that I do
But this is so much bigger than anyone imagined -
Can't you see?

[First Officer:]
But you are not here on your own
We've got your back, we'll make it home
We're wide awake, there's so much to be done

[Locomotive:]
If you believe then I will too
And if the pieces come unglued
They'll know we gave it everything we had

For the greater good
For the greater good
For the greater good
For the greater good

[First Officer:]
One day this place may be our grave
But if we die, by the gods, we'll be saved
(We will be saved, we will be saved)
We'll be saved
(We will be saved, we will be saved)

For the greater good

[First Officer:]
We need you back with us
For the greater good

[Locomotive:]
I believe, I believe
For the greater good

[First Officer:]
'Cause you know you're strong enough
For the greater good

[Locomotive:]
Yeah, everything's gonna be alright
