"Why are we still here? Just to suffer? Every night, I can feel my leg... and my arm... even my fingers. The body I've lost... the comrades I've lost... won't stop hurting... It's like they're all still there. You feel it, too, don't you? I'm gonna make them give back our past."
Kazuhira Miller

"I was born in a small village. I was still a child when we were raided by soldiers. Foreign soldiers. Torn from my elders, I was made to speak their language. With each new post my masters changed. Along with the words they made me speak. With each change, I changed too. My thoughts, personality, how I saw right and wrong. Words - can - kill."
Skull Face

Here's to you, Nicola and Bart
Rest forever here in our hearts

    Not Your Kind of People 
We are not your kind of people
You seem kind of phoney
Everything's a lie
We are not your kind of people
Something in your makeup
Don't see eye to eye

We are not your kind of people
Don't want to be like you
Ever in our lives
We are not your kind of people
We fight when you start talking
There's nothing but white noise

Ahhh... Ahhh... Ahhh... Ahhh...

Running around trying to fit in
Wanting to be loved
It doesn't take much
For someone to shut you down
When you build a shell
Build an army in your mind
You can't sit still
And you don't like hanging round the crowd
They don't understand

You dropped by as I was sleeping
You came to see the whole commotion
And when I woke I started laughing
The jokes on me for not believing

We are not your kind of people
Speak a different language
We see through your lies
We are not your kind of people
Won't be cast as demons
Creatures you despise

We are extraordinary people
We are extraordinary people
We are extraordinary people
We are extraordinary people
— Not Your Kind of People - Garbage

    Sins of the Father 
Light in the deepest night
Reaching out, grasping for a fleeting memory
All the thoughts keep piercing this broken mind
I fought but I'm still standing motionless

Far in the distance
There is light; like the burns, these scars of old
All this pain, reminds me of what I am
I'll live, I'll become all I need to be

Words that kill
Would you speak them to me?
With your breath so still,
It makes me believe
In the Father's sins
Let me suffer now and never die
I'm alive

Pride feeds their blackened hearts
And the thirst, must be quenched, to fuel hypocrisy
Cleansing flames, is the only way to repent
Renounce, what made you

Words that kill
Would you speak them to me?
With your breath so still,
It makes me believe

The Sins never die
Can't wash this blood off our hands
Let the world fear us all
It's just means to an end

Our salvation lies (in the Father's sins)
Beyond the truth (Let me suffer now)

In my heart I just know that there's no way to light up the dark
In his eyes...
Sins of the Father - Donna Burke

    Nuclear 
Standing on the edge of the crater
Like the prophets once said
And the ashes are all cold now
No more bullets, and the embers are dead

Whispers in the air tell the tales
Of the brothers gone
Desolation, devastation
What a mess we made when it all went wrong

Watching from the edge of the circus
For the games to begin
Gladiators draw their swords
Form their ranks for Armageddon

I'm Nuclear
I'm wild
I'm breaking up inside
A heart of broken glass
Defiled
Deep inside
The abandoned child

Standing on the edge of the unknown
Looking in the abyss
And I'm hoping for some miracle
To break out, to escape from all this

Whispers in the air tell the tale
Of a life that's gone
Desolation, devastation
What a mess we made when it all went wrong

I'm Nuclear
I'm wild
I'm breaking up inside
A heart of broken glass
Defiled
Deep inside
The abandoned child

I'm Nuclear
I'm wild
I'm breaking up inside
A heart of broken glass
Defiled
Deep inside
The abandoned child

Deep inside the abandoned child
— Nuclear - Mike Oldfield

    Quiet's Theme 
Birds, in the sky
Carry these, words for me
Life, tasted sweet
It let me live; let me breathe...

Love,
hurts so bad
But still
Saved my soul...

Flowers,
of our pride and past
They bloomed so free
Beneath the sun...

Memories,
I want to give them to you
So you can see
What we left there

When all hope bleeds out,
What remains is dark
Should've left it all for you
For tomorrow...

As your time draws near,
will you live in fear?
Could've left it all for you
But we let go...
— Quiet's Theme - Stefanie Joosten
