Quotes / Guilty Gear

Quotes

"It may look like anime, but it definitely sounds like metal. What's more, an absolute multitude of references point to the fact that the man who wrote the storyline, designed the characters and composed the music for Guilty Gear has metal in his blood. In one character you'll find nods to two different members of a German power metal band, called Helloween, a super-move named after a Metallica album and a theme song that's one word different from the title of an Iron Maiden track. If you where to put a metal detector next to a Guilty Gear game it just might explode."
Gametrailers, Top Ten Most Metal Games

Watching someone play Guilty Gear at the competitive level, you would think they were playing a completely different game than the one you screw around with at home. Proper GG play is really a kind of philosophy. Since it's 2D, like many other fighters you have played, you think you're in for a certain kind of experienceóthen it castrates you.

This castration comes as a total surprise.
Jerry Holkins of Penny Arcade

Lyrics

    Heavy Day 

Detonator will come out of nowhere, yeah!
Trick, Cheat, Fraud, Lie? Sulfur in the air...!

"So let it be, oh let it be", says all debaters.
Six times knocking on the door,
No response but, "Hey, you ready?!"

Back to Back! Death comes riding on a midnight train!
Back to Back! Conscience is screaming to the end!
Back to Back! Can not let anyone do it again!
Back to Back! I can no longer pretend!
Give me a break, you damned!
Just wanna get back my dice again.
Blazing down,
What a heavy day...

Now, you hear the rumble from the ground, yeah!
Trick, Cheat, Fraud, Lie! Clown is dancin' 'round, yeah!

"So let it be, oh let it be", seems I'm the traitor.
Six times knocking on the door,
One last chance you've got to stand!

Back to Back! Death comes riding on a midnight train!
Back to Back! Conscience is screaming to the end!
Back to Back! Can not let anyone do it again!
Back to Back! I can no longer pretend!
Give me a break, you damned!
Just wanna get back my dice again.
Blazing down,
What a heavy day...

Hey! Hey! Hey!

We made a contract with a clown and had a high old time.
No body doubted his true purpose, oh yeah!
Not knowing we had given up everything we had left,
All odds and options denied, trapped here in this dead end-

Back to Back! Death comes riding on a midnight train!
Back to Back! Conscience is screaming to the end!
Back to Back! Blade is already on your jugular vein!
Back to Back! It's now or never, last chance...!
To stand...!

Give me a break, you damned!
Just wanna get back my dice again.
Blazing down-!
What a heavy day...

    Lily 

Lily, you've not changed a bit.
The sky is not the same no more today.
There is no turning back.

Lily, you've not changed a bit.
Covers are all we judge books by today,
If they're shiny or not.

Every page inside is meaningful as always,
But no one's gonna read them out again.

Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Stay out of the cold rain,
Or your heart may become rusty!
Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Don't stand there in this heat!
Your soul is drying up!

You don't need to wait,
Need to wait,
Need to wait for us!

Lily, you'll never change.
The winds are not so soft no more today.
They've changed to cold and sad.

Lily, you'll never change.
They all want a brand new box today,
No matter what's inside.

All these pieces that meant so much to me those days...
The tide has washed them all away today.

Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Stay out of the cold rain,
Or your heart may become rusty!
Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Don't stand there in this heat!
Your soul is drying up!

You don't need to wait,
Need to wait,
Need to wait for us!

What is there to say? Everything's too late,
And we all accepted it that way, so be it.
Time marches on,
Really...

Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Stay out of the cold rain,
Or your heart may become rusty!
Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Just stay safe and sound,
And as long as you are there...

I will figure it out,
Figure it out,
Figure it out for you once more!

Lily, Arcade Staff Roll Theme

    Big Blast Sonic 

Get down to rock!
Get up to burn!
Stand up with pride! Never fear your desire!

One day I noticed that my life was broken.
It was not me who was controlling this body!
Oh! I want, to know whatís really real to me!
Before we vanish like a wave!

Get down to rock!
Get up to burn!
Stand up with pride! Don't be the waste maker!
You must have heard it!
Grasp the truth!
Hold it high!
Raise your fists! Thatís what itís made to start with!
You havenít heard it go!

Donít be afraid to listen to your own heart!
Big Blast Sonic!
Thatís my heartbeat anew!

One day I noticed that the world was broken.
Spoiled as hell, we had our senses dumbed down
OH! I want, to see this whole world in full bloom!
Not this place smudged in black ink!

Get down to rock!
Get up to burn!
Stand up with pride! Don't be the waste maker!
You must have heard it!

Grasp the truth!
Hold it high!
Rise to fight! Thatís how you start a new thing
You must have heard it now!

Donít be afraid to listen to your own heart!
Big Blast Sonic!
Thatís my heartbeat anew!

The world is is filled with easy answers to swallow.
Life is to gobble down, a perfect time killer!
The truth is that you are the one being eaten.
Donít need my answer to be written in that book!
OH! I want, to keep my thirst for what itís worth!
No use in passion not my own!

Get down to rock!
Get up to burn!
Stand up with pride! Don't be the waste maker!
You must have heard it!

Grasp the truth!
Hold it high!
Flash your fists! Thatís how you're supposed to use it!
You must have heard it GO!

Donít be afraid to look yourself in the eyes!
Big Blast Sonic!
Thatís my heartbeat anew!

Big Blast Sonic, Console Opening Theme

    Icarus 

She knew it all
It's a fleeting dream
No one can reach the horizon

She knew it all
It's a fleeting dream
No hands can touch the Sun

If you cannot
Stop this pathetic time
Oh bring back, bring back
All I need if proof that I lived

Take me, take me
To the end of the world
It's not mercy that I'm asking
O' please
Take me, take me
Outside of these walls
Longing for the blue sky
Even if my wings may not be spread

She knew it all
It's a fleeting dream
No way to catch the moon in the pond (Catch the moon in the pond)

She knew it all
That it's a fleeting dream
My shadow melds into the night

If you cannot
Stop this pathetic time
Bring back, bring back
For all I need is proof I lived

Take me, take me
To the end of the world
It's not mercy that I'm seeking
O' please
Take me, take me
Outside of these walls
Longing for a blue sky
Even if my wings are not my own

Dusk of night
Descends upon me
Oh please, don't look
I won't be there for you no more

Take me, take me
Outside of these walls
It's not mercy that I'm begging
O' please
Take me, take me
To the end of the world
Longing for the sunshine
Even if my wings may melt away

Icarus, Console Ending Theme

    Coming Home 

Turn around, stay away
Life is so hard, here it goes again
Time only for us or so I thought

Out of rest, out of luck, itís just the usual stuff I know
but where your footsteps gone, what am I doing here?

I donít know how youíre feeling now; hope you are not lonely
We are in the bad weather, are you crying?

Coming home, coming home,
Iíve been waiting for you all
Iíll be there, proud of you, canít wait to see you smiling
Coming home, coming home,
But those words itself have fade away
The sun has gone down long time ago

Our guard down; our school, our neighborhood places to look
Canít find anything left of you
On the highway to the border even though theyíre the seven seas
Canít find your footsteps but still looking for your trace

I donít know how youíre doing now, hope you ainít scared or alone
No one will harm you, so please stop crying

Coming home, coming home
Iíve been waiting for you all
Iíll be there, lonely too; canít wait to see you smiling
Coming home, Coming home
But those words that are now lost in nowhere
The moon has came up long time ago

I donít know what should I do now, not sure who I am anymore
Was it only me who thought weíre family

Coming home, coming home
Iíve been waiting to hear your words
Iíll be there, proud of you, canít wait to see you smiling
Coming home, coming home
But those words itself have fade away
The sun has gone down long time ago

Coming Home, Story Mode Insert Song, Episode 10

    Six Black Heavens Guns 

I will not doubt myself anymore,
I must just simply act
Just feel, just think!
Don't just say "alright"!
Why turn away your eyes?

There is no day and night
Nobody nodded in silence
World of fiction

Six Black Heavens Guns
It is the last madness, oh, of memory
Six Black Heavens Guns
It is the last justice, oh
Give it give it give it up? You bastard!

Can't you get yourself back together yet?
You must have known by now
Giving or taking
Not the same at all
Ask who was once yourself

Night has fell, stars are gone
And the sky has now blacked out
World of fiction

Six Black Heavens Guns
It is the last madness, oh, by piety
Six Black Heavens Guns
It is the last fortress, oh
Give it give it give it up? You bastard!

We got lost in the fog
Outcome of our own deeds
We got lost in the future
Blindly following this path down to hell

Ddust to dust, truth in ashes
What's found was lost and forfeit
World of fiction

Six Black Heavens Guns
It is the last madness, oh, with misery
Six Black Heavens Guns
Are we forever hopeless? Oh
Six Black Heavens Guns
Six Black Heavens Guns
Give it give it give it up? You bastard!
