And that's why she told me. Snake, history will never know what she did. No one will ever learn the truth. Her story... her debriefing, will endure only in your heart. (tearing up) Everything she did, she did for her country. She sacrificed her life and her honor for her native land. She was a real hero. She was a true patriot."

Song Lyrics

    Snake Eater 
"What a thrill...
With darkness and silence through the night
What a thrill...
I'm searching and I'll melt into you
What a fear in my heart
But you're so supreme!

I'd give my life!
Not for honour, but for you! (Snake Eater...)
In my time, there'll be no one else...
Crime, it's the way I fly to you! (Snake Eater...)
I'm still in a dream,
Snake Eater!

Someday you go through the rain
And someday, you feed on a tree frog
This ordeal, the trial to survive
For the day we see new light!

I'd give my life!
Not for honour, but for you! (Snake Eater...)
In my time, there'll be no one else...
Crime, it's the way I fly to you! (Snake Eater...)
I'm still in a dream,
Snake Eater!

I'm still in a dream...
Snake Eater!
Snake Eater..."
— Snake Eater - Cynthia Harrell
