There walked a lonely man, silent, mute, the only man
Not knowing how, not knowing why was he the sole survivor
Why should he be alive, breathing still while others died
And the only question, why was he the sole survivor

Sole survivor, cursed with second sight
Haunted savior, cried into the night
Sole survivor, cursed with second sight
Haunted savior, cried into the night

Wind blew across the sand, he stood alone and he had no plan
And with the last rays of the sun he screamed aloud, began to run
In his tears he sees his face, I am the end of the human race
When I'm gone there'll be no trace for I'm the sole survivor

Sole survivor, cursed with second sight
Haunted savior, cried into the night
Sole survivor, cursed with second sight
Haunted savior, cried into the night

One night when years had passed, the skies shook from a fiery blast
And there a starship, safe at last, to come rescue this survivor
They beckoned him inside but only man, he would not ride
Instead he found a place to hide, for he's the sole survivor

Sole survivor, cursed with second sight
Haunted savior, cried into the night
Sole survivor, cursed with second sight
Haunted savior, cried into the night

Sole survivor, cursed with second sight
Haunted savior, cried into the night
Sole survivor, cursed with second sight
Haunted savior, cried into the night

Sole survivor, cursed with second sight
Haunted savior, cried into the night
Sole survivor, cursed with second sight
Haunted savior, cried into the night
