Quotations

"What are you trying to accomplish, putting yourselves in danger like that? Trying to see "justice" done? Is that really justice, though? Aren't you just doing this because you want a little spice in your boring lives? What's the difference between that and a criminal who gets his kicks by murdering people? You see what I'm getting at? There's still a lot of time left. Give it some thought."
The Killer giving a Breaking Speech

    Persona Awakenings 

"I knew it wasn't lying, but I was so ashamed that I didn't want to admit it. You're me, and I'm you. When you get down to it, all of this is me."
Yosuke Hanamura

"Yeah, I kinda get it now. You are me. A side of me I couldn't forgive, that I tried to ignore. But you still exist. You're a part of me."
Chie Satonaka

"'I want to run away', 'I want someone to save me'. You're right, those feelings are part of me, too. I understand now...you're me."
Yukiko Amagi

"Yeah, I know. I've known all this time I had something like you! It ain't a matter of guys or chicks, I'm just scared shitless of being rejected. I'm a total pansy who tries to make everyone hate me. C'mon, get up. Anyone who looks like me, I know they ain't so weak that they can't take a punch. I already know that you're me. You're me...and I'm you, dammit!"
Kanji Tatsumi

"I'm sorry, you must've been in a lot of pain up to now. You're part of me, but I kept refusing to admit you existed. I was trying to figure out who the real me. But I realize now that I was on the wrong track. There is no 'real' me. It just doesn't exist. You, me, even Risette, they were all born from me. All of them are...me."
Rise Kujikawa

"I'm sorry, I kept ignoring you, pretending you didn't exist. But you are me, and I am you. You've always been inside me. What I should yearn for...no, what I must strive for isn't to become a man. it's to accept myself for who I really am."
Naoto Shirogane

Lyrics

    Reach Out to the Truth 
Now I face out I hold out
I reach out to the truth of my life
Seeking to seize on the whole moment, yeah
Yeah
Naked truth lies only if you realize
Appearing in nobody's eyes till they sterilize
Stop the guerrilla warfare to keep it fair
Bro change your rage to a smarter greater cause

You know the stake is high stardom is near
Those who sympathized you die killers pass by
Do not waste your time in hating flirting guys
Use your might to AIs do justice to them all

Now I face out I hold out
I reach out to the truth of my life
Seeking to seize on the whole moment to now break away
Oh God let me out
Can you let me out?
Can you set me free from this dark inner world?
Save me now
Last beat in the soul

— Reach Out to the Truth, one of the two battle themes, composed by Shoji Meguro and performed by Shihoko Hirata

    Time To Make History 
It's a war out there everyday, you can't hide from it
You gotta play by the rules, play it cool
Gotta laugh in the face of the sad disgrace
When your friends and foes look alike

On the face of it
They missed their history
But they fight over place in it
Yeah they fight, over place in it

Hard-hit by the times
That's just how your life goes by
I know it's not your fault, you say
But there ain't no other way

So, step on up to the plate, meet your fate
Walkin' straight on into the lion's lair
Step on up, up to the plate, 'cause this ain't no game
It's time to make history, yeah!
— Time to make History, one of the two battle themes, composed by Shoji Meguro and performed by Shihoko Hirata

    Pursuing My True Self 
We are living our lives...
Abound with so much information...

Come on, let go of the remote,
Don't you know? You're letting all the junk flood in
I try to stop the flow, double clicking on the go,
But it's no use; hey, I'm being consumed -
Loading, loading, loading...
Quickly reaching maximum capacity,
Warning, warning, warning...!
Gonna short-circuit my identity

Get up on your feet, tear down the walls,
Catch a glimpse of the hollow world...
Snooping 'round town will get you nowhere,
You're locked up in your mind...

We're all trapped in a maze of relationships,
Life goes on with or without you
I swim in the sea of the unconscious,
I search for your heart, pursuing my true self...
Pursuing My True Self, opening theme, composed by Shoji Meguro and performed by Shihoko Hirata.

    Shadow World 
Truth... is elusive, it's nowhere to be found
Yeah, the truth can never be written - down
It's not in any magazine,
You can't see it on your TV screen

Truth... is evasive, oh, you might have the facts
Got it straight, you think, but then it all - cracks wide open
You can search the world far and wide,
The only truth that you can ever find

Is... in another
A soul that's got the same burning need
To find out what's 'neath the cover up.

One can't be without the true other,
So let's get together, see what we can uncover.

One... that defines your world,
Gives you truth in life.
One... that excels,
Special enough to guide your way through...
The Shadow World.
Shadow World, opening theme for Golden, composed by Shoji Meguro and performed by Shihoko Hirata.

    True Story 
You got yourself behind a door deep inside your heart, again
You wanna hide, you wanna come out, going round and round

Thinking hard about it doesn't help you one bit
Say Hello (Hello!)
You gotta say goodbye to thousand lies, yeah!

Shout, friends! Just those words you really mean
And let your voice be heard all over the world
Stand up when you hear the knock on the door
It's me, come on out;
Get ready for your True Story.
—True Story, composed by Shoji Meguro and performed by Rie Kugimiya and Laura Bailey in Japanese and English respectively.

    Heaven 
Can't get my mind out of those memories
Now time to tell them "don't take my dream"
Still music keeps on turning me from the words that hurt my soul
Removing doubts from my mind

Those long days passing by from that door
Like late summer they slowly fade away
Finding ways through the favorite tune
Played all day with my eyes closed

Those long days passing by from that door
Like late summer they slowly fade away
Finding ways through the favorite tune
Filling me with those sounds.
—Heaven, dungeon theme of Heaven, composed by Shoji Meguro and performed by Shihoko Hirata.
