Track Name: I Call Next Game
Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, a, b, a, b
This is the code for a world waiting just for me
I create the story, I'm the hero, I'm the villain
What I choose defines my life in the end

Press start, jump into your fantasy
In this story, you're the kings and queens
We all band together, our memories saved
We all play together, in our world we stay

We are the soldiers.
We are the knights.
We are the soldiers.
We are the knights.
Track Name: Ronin, the Machine
Cut from the same cloth as every monster
That's bringing the world to its knees
I'll do whatever it takes to be free [of this torture]

My friends and my family helped me forget this devil inside
I was not designed to fear death
But pain is why I fight

Destructive by design
Constructive by choice
I will not believe the lies and tales
For your memory, how can I fail?

I may no longer feel,
But my heart is still real
Nothing will stop me
This is my rising

Put together piece by piece,
like a sinister puzzle
I'll show you that my big picture
is more than flesh and metal

Adrift without a challenge
Cut loose without a keeper
They've sown their own fate
And I am just the reaper

Is this the will of a people!?

Would you call me opportunistic?
Enabler of war?
I protect the weak.
I'm not a monster like before.

Liberator, I choose the needs of the few
The wind blows, the rain falls.
The strong prey, and the weak make do.

Barricade the mistakes I made
Enterprising soldier of fortune
This sword is a means to an end
To protect the ones you'd prey upon

You say war is a cruel master, but an effective teacher
Sure as the sun will rise, I won't let this slaughter continue!

Cut from the same cloth as every monster
That's bringing the world to its knees
I'll do whatever it takes to be free [of this torture]

My friends and my family helped me forget this devil inside
I was not designed to fear death
But pain is why I fight

I can no longer see
How one sword keeps another in its sheath
Nothing will stop me
This is my rising

It feels as real as anything else
I'm fighting for reasons I understand
Causes you don't believe in

Just because it's legal, that doesn't make it right
Ideals that give life meaning
Are the only things for which to die

Is this the will of a people?
Track Name: Rampancy; Reclaimer
Engulfed by the wreckage my past has created,
I'm thrilled by the invitation to meet my end
A slow dance with destiny, I'm being persuaded
Welcome enigma, I've got two ways to win again

Not a step, take a fall in the right direction
Even gravity can't hold me down
I am the catalyst of reclamation
My objectivity is leaving me now

Some call me a demon, others a machine
I won't persist after my own defeat
You might think that at my core I am broken
I've just locked up every word that was spoken

Has our nobility blinded us?
Our actions tread between honor and foolishness
Time was always on our side
Now the second hand turns to reveal a diminishing life

I know I'm supposed to know what to do right now
There's never been a problem I couldn't solve
You know asking has never been my strong suit
Just know that I will never relinquish you

Are you willing to give it all,
To undergo the only instance of emotion I could ever show?
If seven years is all I have, I won't sit back and wait
A machine won't seal my fate.

I could give you 40,000 reasons why I know
This light is not the light of a star
I will not let humanity become enslaved
By the oppression of this artificial war

We will never be panderers, but wanderers
Straight forward and reckless 'til the bitter end
So many journeys, yet one destination
I'll be the one to help us all transcend

Before this ends, we'll find out
Which one of us is the person and which is the machine

Are you willing to give it all,
To undergo the only instance of emotion I could ever show?
If seven years is all I have, I won't sit back and wait
A machine won't seal my fate.

I hope you know now that I won't recover from this
My mind is replicating, ripping away the only parts of me I have left
Our strength was a luminous sun. Our hope was a relentless flame.
If my rampancy can save you now, I won't mind thinking myself to death

Are you willing to give it all,
To undergo the only instance of emotion I could ever show?
If seven years is all I have, I won't sit back and wait
A machine won't seal my fate.
Track Name: Endure & Survive
I once held you so close to me
Never letting you out of my sight
How could this have happened to us?
When was it ever enough?
This nightmare, I never wanted to see
You go, you go, you go, don't go, don't go
I can't do this on my own

I can't do this on my own
Left to endure and survive
What heart I had left behind, lost in your blue eyes
With nothing left to lose, left to endure and survive
Lost in a world, stripped of its own rules

I will avenge you
I will avenge you

I can't do this on my own
Left to endure and survive
What heart I had left behind, lost in your blue eyes
With nothing left to lose, left to endure and survive
Lost in a world, stripped of its own rules

If only you knew how much I dream of you
Knowing that theres nothing that I can do
But I see your face in a dream and I wish for a way to change the world
Maybe have a chance to escape from the same demons that took my precious little girl

I will rebuild this for you
Pick up the pieces, make them new
So that they'll remember
The last of us

Darkness creeps up on me like a chill
I don't know how many of them I'll have to kill
To clear the path,

Fueled by the memory I'll slay
With hopes of a brighter future
And in piece your body may lay

I'll take the few of you thats left,
and with you, my sweet, my promise be kept
I'll build, I'll build, I'll build, I'll build.

I will rebuild all
I will rebuild all of this for you.
Track Name: The Opposite of Despair
Break your limits.

The monsters inside are planning their escape
I can’t let this rage win
A choice, a decision to hold it back
To carry all this evil within

Alone in my heart, this message becomes clear
If I allow my vice to show, I will be my worst fear

Alone in my thoughts,
In the back of my mind it sits
That in despite of my best efforts,
This disease will run its course

Remember.

Remember to be strong
Your words hold onto me
I let you go but didn’t stop you
But now I can’t see you breathe
I accept that I was wrong
You wanted it so badly
How could I have just stood by and let you…

Tempt me, daunting apparition
Grant me my only ambition
My will is not surrendered yet
Can this really be my fate?

No, I will not fail again
I will fight till the end
No! I will not fail again
I will fight till the end
I will control my monsters
This will not be the end of me

The monsters inside are planning their escape
I can’t hide myself for long
A destiny, a fate as my curse I must remember to be strong

Remember

Remember to be strong
Your words hold onto me
I will not fail again
I will fight till the end!
Remember to be strong
They will remember me
I have conquered what's inside
Now your memory can finally leave

These same demons will be my tools
My weapons once dark, used for light
To live in regret, to live like the fools
Is no longer the battle I fight.
Track Name: Hope Is for the Weak, Pandora
This world once held my fond memories
Times where my hands were clean
Clean of this torment, clean of this torture

I'll never let this weakness show
I'll never, I'll never let this weakness show

Your time is now, you sat back and did nothing to save us
You brought this war to your door
From my hands, you shall turn to dust
Nothing will stand in my way, my blood is lusting, burning
Craving for this vengeance

Oh, I've lost my way, unwillingly brought to this fate [unwillingly brought to this fate]
I know I've disappointed you.
But I've come too far, come too far.
With this hate in my heart, I can never be found
(It is far too late) It's far too late

This world once held my fond memories
They shatter under my vengeance

I am the monster, I am destruction
I am the demon, I the weapon
I am the monster, I am destruction
I accept this role now

Nothing is left for me [Nothing is left for me]
I will always believe [That hope is for the weak]

Nothing is left for me!
This world holds lost memories

I pray this curse will end
Amongst the clouds

I pray this curse will end
I pray I see your face in the clouds!

I pray this curse will end
That I will see your face amongst the clouds
Please allow me rest, I've lost my strength
Let me accept the end
Track Name: It's Dangerous to Go Alone
Hey, listen
Resounding
Graceful waves of wind
Draws me closer to
Closer to...
Deeper and deeper we find ourselves lost
Lost in these woods with the winds of change on our backs
If only there were maps to guide me farther than I've come
I'm following a whispered melody hoping that this song will my bring me home

I'll scour every tower I swear you'll be found
Be it boss or demon, they all get cut down
The darkness holds no reign
Even the nightmares that haunt you in dungeons lay slain
In me the pieces of my heart remain pure with hope
For your return to the throne
Queen of wisdom, last of three
Return your light to these dark lands for they are in need

I'm waking up on the shores of an unfamiliar island
Wondering how I arrived to this secluded dreamland
I hear the sound calling out to me from deep beneath
My only hope is to try to find the magic that's keeping me here

And here I stand before a nightmare
My heart falters not

With every instrument, I feel the winds push me closer to my return to home

Before this all over, me and the darkness with go our rounds
Here below ground, my answers are found
This land is just a dream

Let the distant sounds wake you up
This is island is made from your dreams
I'm realizing now that you have no power
An island created in me

I'm getting myself lost so I can find you
I'm getting myself lost so I can find you
