On the basic level this is an adaptation of the song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, though was inspired by how said song was used in the game. Quite effectively I might add...
Originating from Aegis far,
Under the shadow of its star,
Terror dwells in the ship high,
A dark omen in the sky.
To those inside all hope is gone,
On whom no sunlight shines upon,
Power failure, the loss of light,
Only leaves the darkest night.
The creatures scuttle through the dark,
Extinguishing life's feeble spark.
Is there safety? Which way to go?
The living scramble to and fro.
Vigil over their ship keep,
New bodies, that's what these creatures seek.
The survivors do not shut their eyes,
They keep them open and simply cry.
And as their hope, that little spark,
Is lost to the roaring dark,
To creatures that have not come far,
The things that life knows not what they are,
Out towards the windows look,
To light that shines through tiny nooks,
They sing about what is so far,
Twinkle, twinkle little star…
