Founder's Song is a traditional song that was sung every Friday on Founder's Island. Dr. Gross is seen singing the song in the beginning of "Hide and Seek," and later again after Frieda's ship was destroyed, albeit she was only humming. The song explains why the life on Founder's Island is the way it is: they are attempting to rescue and preserve the human race under the philosophy of the Founders. This song was written by storyboard artist Aleks Sennwald.

Chords

C
We had to leave our place because
Am
The world was dyin'
C
And everyone that wasn't dead
Am
Spent all of their time cryin'

F
Our ways had failed, nature had failed
C
We made a lot of errors
F
The Founders had some new ideas
G
That made everything better

       F
Our Founders dreamt of this island
                  C
Our ships landed on its shore
                                 F
They built our wonderful Guardian
                                    Dm
To keep destruction from our door

C
The Hiders fear these new ideas
Am
But do your best to help them
C
'Cause just outside is darkness and death
Am
Disease, monsters, and problems

      F
So come out of your hiding place
                  C
Come out of the darkness
                                    F
And we'll find a new way
                                            C
To live by the light of the Founders
