The Lyrics

This is based on the 1970s Filmation TV series "Ark II" which dealt with the ruined world of the 25th century. The Intro to the show explains all: For millions of years, Earth was fertile and rich. Then pollution and waste began to take their toll. Civilization fell into ruin. This is the world of the 25th Century. Only a handful of scientists remain, men who have vowed to rebuild what has been destroyed. This is their achievement --- Ark II, a mobile storehouse of scientific knowledge, manned by a highly trained crew of young people. Their mission: to bring the hope of a new future to mankind. JONAH'S VOICE: Ark II Log, Entry #1: I, Jonah, Ruth, Samuel, and Adam are fully aware of the dangers we will face as we venture into unknown, maybe even hostile, areas. But we’re determined to bring the promise of a new civilization to our people and to our planet.
Radiation, ozone, devastated humanity
Insanity, It’s the apocalypse
It’s the apocalypse

In the 25th century hardly anyone survives
Humanity is in decay
There’s no looking back
Life used to be good
But scientists say it's a mess
Its a mess
It's a mess
Now what comes next?
It's a mess
It's a mess
It's a mess
It's a mess
(End of the world)

But we got a second chance with the Ark
'Cuz when it's travelin'
The rebuilding starts
We got a second chance with the Ark
(Now a new world)

Running, running
Into scavengers, food is running thin
The Jet-Jumper on the way, while the Roamer is searchin’
Crops are bad
But land tyrants still make harsh demands
Harsh demands
It’s a trap!
But still there is resistance
Harsh demands
It’s a trap!
But still there is resistance
(Same old world)

But we got a second chance with the Ark
'Cuz when it's travelin'
The rebuilding starts
We got a second chance with the Ark
(No end of the world)
With the Ark
We got a second chance with the Ark
With the Ark
We got, we got a second chance with the Ark

Jonah
Ruth
Samuel
Gonna start a brand-new world!

Work your body, make the soil good
Proper nutrients, it will produce food
Find your freedom in a new age
Don’t use weapons
Don’t be a savage
It’s a brand new start
Peace is still alive in our hearts
Don’t let humanity fall apart
You’ve got a second chance with the Ark

Yes, we got a second chance with the Ark
'Cuz when it's travelin'
The rebuilding starts
We got a second chance with the Ark

Yes, we got a second chance with the Ark
'Cuz when it's travelin'
The rebuilding starts

Yes "Ark" is a good name of something to build for exile from the Earth. :-) Great job with this one Rob! :-) 5's!

My main fear with this one is that only people who grew up in the 1970s _might_ remeber the show. To anyone else this isn't gonna make a lot of sense. I wish they would make a new movie for this and also "ISIS"!!!

You know, even though I was born after that era, I'm still a big fan of TV shows from the 70's. This one sounds quite interesting! I'll have to check it out sometime.
