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 experience- then it castrates you.

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

    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!

    Storyteller 

Warm in the day, have a good time.
Cold in the night, have a good time.
That's what I keep on saying
Till I lose my mind.
Feel like a bird in a sea breeze,
Shine like a moon in the night sky
Can you believe that
Till the end of your life?

Go with some bucks into her room
That's enough for satisfaction.
(We) already know how to have fun,
No need of explanation!

Ooh! What's so worth nothing?
Ooh! What's worth a bad thing?
Surely that doesn't matter!
Oh! Storyteller!

Ooh! What's so worth nothing?
Ooh! What's worth a bad thing?
Oh no, it doesn't matter!
The song we will never lose!

That I'd never be taller,
That she'll love someone other,
Just cause you think know me
Don't try to change my mind!
Happiness of seeing a newborn,
All futures that could be dreamed of,
Everything will be judged
By our mortal life.

Go with some rainbows in our hands
Grey papers are not in need for.
Don't mind if we make mistakes,
Make jokes of them, have a laugh!

Ooh! What's so worth nothing?
Ooh! What's worth a bad thing?
Please spread these words forever!
Oh! Storyteller!

Ooh! What's so worth nothing?
Ooh! What's worth a bad thing?
How can it not matter!
The songs we lost one by one!

Look around,
Run around,
There's nothing left to smile for.
Look around,
Run around,
There's nothing left to cry for!

Ooh! What's so worth nothing?
Ooh! What's worth a bad thing?
Don't ever let it fade out!
Oh! Storyteller!

Ooh! What's so worth nothing?
Ooh! What's worth a bad thing?
There is no need for sorrow!
Great songs will never die!

    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

    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 is 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

    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

Dust 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!

    Wanna be Crazy 

Behold! I'm sharp-witted.
Those in charge don't try to see.
Speak up? Not worth the risk and time.
Blockhead! Don't make me angry. What a bother.
Use those telescopes.
Bring it on! Deep inside of you
You know it's crazy, why not say so?

King's Chair! Time to pull them down.
Prove wrong those silver ties.
Cry for the moon, and keep being troubled.
World wouldn't change if no one acts.
Don't waste your time on trifles.

You wanna be crazy? You Wanna be freak out?
You don't wanna break down? Ignite rusty heart
Shred the bindings, don't turn around.
You need to lose once to see. Let's get down!

Behold! I'm fast as wind.
But who can I chase and overtake?
Can't move. Just checking the scale all day.
Back down! Can't stand to run watching your rear.
Use the kinescope.
Bring it on! Deep inside of you
You know it's crazy, why not say so?

King's Chair! Time to pull them down.
Prove wrong those silver ties.

Cry for the moon, and keep being troubled.
World wouldn't change if no one acts.
Don't waste your time on trifles.

You wanna be crazy? You wanna be freak out?
You don't wanna break down? Ignite rusty heart.
Shred the bindings, don't turn around.
Dig out again what you've lost! Let's get down!

Do not say a word.
I know what you're thinking.
I'm Terrified to see the man in the mirror.

Are you feeling sick?
The Doctor asks me.
Why can't I give him an answer?

You wanna be crazy? You wanna be freak out?
You don't wanna break down? Ignite rusty heart.
Shred the bindings, don't turn around.
You need to lose once to see the truth.

You wanna be crazy? You wanna be freak out?
You don't wanna break down? Ignite rusty heart
Shred the bindings, don't turn around.
Dig out again what you've lost! Let's get down!

    Sky Should be High 

I just tried to take the PATH
that led me to be FREE and ended in this bind

The PAST is what it's called
FILTH is what it is.
That's the wall of the CELL

Fades away
Fades away like footsteps on the shoreline
why? They try to bring me down.
Sky should be high Backflow

HERE we go again CON—tradiction
Should I stay or should I die

TRIED to pave a path
DUG a huge hole
had no clue that was my GRAVE

Fades away
Hands and feet are bound Can't even see
why? They try to bring me down.
Sky should be high Backflow

Backflow
Backflow As dark shades are made by the sun
Backflow good booze is making it just worse.
Backflow

The more words, the less I get
This world is built in brimstone

Can't you see
The innocent may find the way
Wise men lose track of the single path
No one knows tomorrow

I'll never ever kneel down

Stairway
Jaded town of god. What the heck
Stay away Not going there
Sky should be high

Oh Fade away
Fades away like footsteps on the shoreline
(Yeah) Fades away just one moment left
Sky should be high Backflow

This is space base.
This is space base, Can you hear me
Air is enough. No need to worry.
At least enough for two

This is space base.
Information, resources, You have everything
Find what's lacking's far more difficult
Except one little thing.

The Whole world is kind to me
But sorry sorry sorry
Wearing a fine suit,paying by a credit card
but I can not prove myself

This is space base.
This is space base. Can you hear me
The world may crumble down with
just one piece missing

The Whole world is kind to me
But sorry sorry sorry
wearing a shiny crown, paid by a blanc cheque
That still will not convince my self

This is the center of the Universe
But without her, I'm not here

Only my shell remains here
Lonely my soul left somewhere

Freesia Here I am
And sorry sorry sorry
Flying through the galaxies,
Hands shaken everywhere
But I, but I, want you by my side

The Whole world is kind to me
But sorry sorry sorry
Wearing a fine suit, paying by a credit card
But I can not prove myself

    TSUKI NO SHIHAI 

Birds fly
According to instinct.
No one has told them how or why.

To survive,
To connect,
Die a ruthless death, that's life!

Fly! (Get high!)
Dive! (Burn out!)
Before the moon's domination
Fly! (Get high!)
Dive! (Burn out!)
Before being dragged down

Don't lose your wings
Even if it turns to ash
Fly! (Get high!)
Dive! (Burn out!)
Even if you writhe
The days of just reacting
That is not called evolution.

The rules of nature
I live, but how about you?
That brain is a device,
Heart is an organ

To survive,
To descend,
A meaningless life, that's death!

Fly! (Get high!)
Dive! (Burn out!)
Before the star's demolition
Fly! (Get high!)
Dive! (Burn out!)
Before being struck down

Don't lose your wings
Even if it turns to dust
Fly! (Get high!)
Dive! (Burn out!)
Even if you starve
The days of just complaining
That is not called revolution.

Live, live,
That is life!
Die, die,
That is life!

Here are clothes and shoes,
Even a map is prepared.
Nothing left for devising,
Nothing left to find out.

Wash, wash, wash away the knowledge
Before becoming just a machine that breathes.
Throw, throw, throw away the glasses
Before becoming machine foreseeing the future.

To survive,
To connect,
Die a ruthless death, that's life!

Fly! (Get high!)
Dive! (Burn out!)
Before the moon's domination
Fly! (Get high!)
Dive! (Burn out!)
Before being dragged down

Don't lose your wings
Even if it turns to ash
Fly! (Get high!)
Dive! (Burn out!)
Even if you writhe.

    Divide My Heart 

Gathering. I picked up many wards
(I was) Absorbed in a book and didn't hear your call.
Suddenly, my journey has begun
While everyone around blessed me, how could I've known?

Day by day,
I thought of it Falling down to the abyss
The answer that I found was not right

Divide my heart Someone, dies unfairly
Divide my heart Someone burned to soul by vengeance
I don't know what has started all this tragedy
I don't know it. So I...

Gathering. You picked out many words
(You were) Thrown in to the flood of rage, hatred and all
Suddenly, your journey has begun
If everything you know was biased, how would you know?

Day by day,
You think of it Falling down to the abyss
The answer that you found was not right

Divide my heart Someone, dies unfairly
Divide my heart Someone burned to soul by vengeance
I don't know why we started all this tragedy
I don't know why. So I...

I have gathered a lot
I have gathered so much
All the pieces that fit into my box
But there was not one important thing.

Back then, I did it every day.
One day was just like another.
I believed it was my own intention,
But now, I'm not sure anymore
Suddenly, my journey has begun
While everyone around blessed me, how could I've known?

The World that I know is cut out of an album of much more
Something tends to direct me and makes me feel like
it's my choice

Wired limbs, Ears of clay
Smile of wax, Eyes of glass
Sponge brain, Ash heart
Look I'm not a bad man

Divide my heart Someone, dies unfairly
Divide my heart Someone burned to soul by vengeance
I don't know what has started all this tragedy
I don't know it.

Divide my heart Someone, dies unfairly
Divide my heart Someone burned to soul by vengeance
I don't know why we started all this tragedy
Do I?
