The Megas Megaman Rock Opera!
#1
The Megas have done up a really awesome series of albums over the last few years. They did a sweet Megaman rock opera, while not quite as gritty as the famous Protomen albums, they are still really good in creating a more shades-of-grey conflict between Megaman and Dr. Wily. Check it out:

Megatainment (Megaman 1)

Evolution of Circuitry (Elecman's theme)





We’re at a level select
If I’m the one you elect,
I have the ability to electrify.

Stand with me,
And we’ll begin a new society.

Power up the revolution;
It’s time for an evolution of circuitry!
Robots will lead!

Take down their institutions,
And put an end to human cruelty;
We will be free!

I say they owe us a debt.
Today it’s time to collect.
I have the ability to rectify.

Stand with me;
And we’ll begin a new society!

Power up the revolution;
It’s time for an evolution of circuitry!
Robots will lead!

Take down their institutions,
And put an end to human cruelty!
We will be free!

Power up the revolution;
It’s time for an evolution of circuitry!
Robots will lead!

Take down their institutions
And put an end to robot slavery!
We will be free!

Wily’s sons
Lead this evolution
We keep our heads held high
And start the fire.

Journey starts;
It all ends tonight;
I send the spark of war
Along the wire.



Beneath the Steel (Bombman's theme)





Exploding glass and steel, (EXPLOSION)
Punctuate these things I feel,  (MY POWER)
One detonation,  (ONE SOUND)
And the city is coming down!

IT’S TIME!

The hour has come tonight
WE FIGHT!
My power will bring the light of a new dawn
It’s time to drop the bomb!

You’ve lit a fuse inside me;
And now my instincts guide me through
To what I must do
(cue: explosion)

Now I know why they made me;
Something has changed beneath the steel;
The robot can feel.

The air is thick with fear
The day of reckoning is here
Choose your next words carefully
‘Cause they will be your last.

A fire in once lifeless eyes  (A FIRE)
Motivated by their cries  (IN MY EYES)
Obliteration,
The humans’ chance has passed.

ONE CRY!
And the battle is upon you tonight
ONE BOMB!
And the sky will be full of the light of a new dawn
And they will sing our song.

You’ve lit a fuse inside me;
And now my instincts guide me through
To what I must do
(cue: explosion)

Now I know why they made me;
Something has changed beneath the steel;
The robot can feel.
(cue: explosion)

You’ve lit a fuse inside me;
and now my instincts guide me through
to what I must do.
(cue: explosion)

Now I know why they made me;
something has changed beneath the steel;
The robot can feel.
(robotic emotiooooooooooooooooooon)



Hell has Frozen Over (Fireman/Iceman's theme)





Finally;
What I never thought could be;
Fire and Ice could act as one,
And thus begins our epic fusion!
Now that you’ve warmed up to me,
My temper’s at a lower degree.
It feels like this dichotomy was meant to be!

Hell has frozen over;
Hell has frozen over;
Break it down;
Hell has frozen over;
Hell has frozen over.


Let’s get down, far from home;
We were made to stand alone.
Together we are the chosen one;
You can’t stop us, come and get some!
Tonight, we claim victory.
We’ve taken our rightful seat.
It feels like this dichotomy was meant to be!

Hell has frozen over;
Hell has frozen over;
Break it down;
Hell has frozen over;
Hell has frozen over.

Let’s get down;
The impossible unity.
The two of us make three.
While everything’s coming down they will see.
That we set them free.
And they will believe,
That Hell can freeze.


Hell has frozen over;
Hell has frozen over;
Break it down;
Hell has frozen over;
Hell has frozen over;
Let’s get down.


Funny that Cutman and Gutsman, arguably the two most popular robot masters from MM1 did not get their songs remixed in the Megas' album.






Look What You've Done (Dr. Wily Fortress)

I hope history is kind to us all.
I know they’ll blame me for the fall.

I only wish there’s a better way out.
but there’s no better way out.

This is the end.

You’ve started the fall.
Can’t see the destiny,
That we once saw,
On the edge of dawn.
What have you done?

One night it was clear. – What colors you gleam;
These things I was building. – Blue, black and Machine;
Were not meant to serve. – Perfection in steel;
They were meant to conquer. – A glorious future revealed!

This is the end.

You’ve started the fall.
Can’t see the destiny,
That we once saw,
On the edge of dawn.
What have you done?

Their eyes were opened easily. – Rise up now, my sons.
It was like flipping a switch. – There is much be done.
They were more than happy to join me. – This is the final stage.
Because, they believe. – Lead us into a new age!

This is the end.

You’ve started the fall.
Can’t see the destiny,
That we once saw,
On the edge of dawn.
What have you done?

And who is this you send?

One of them?
While you cower far from harm...
He’ll just disappoint you.

Now it’s done.

We’re divided.
Call him home;
This one’s misguided!

I see his hands - The robots are stronger than man;
Covered in my children’s blood; - I will not let victory fall through my hands…
And his eyes do not waver.

Call me wrong?
The future needs us.
Your answer’s death?
You end us, bleed us.

And how quick you had him dispatch his brothers; - I’ve made a promise to them;
You called this murderer a savior. - I will not let victory fall through my hands…

Can you not feel,
That we could have a life forged in steel.
I only ask that you see what I see.
This is the answer.
Why won’t you believe?

This is the end.
You’ve started the fall.
Can’t see the destiny,
That we once saw,
On the edge of dawn.
What have you…

I can see the headlines now:
“Megaman has ended the evil domination of Dr. Wily
and restored the world to peace.
However, the never ending battle continues
Until all destructive forces are defeated.
Fight Megaman!
For everlasting peace."

This is the end my friend

This is the end but I’ll be back again
When the time is right…
Dr. Light.

I’ll return to help burn
Your people’s future down.
You destroyed my children;
You forced my retribution.
The battle is ending;
True war is just beginning!
I’ll learn from this disaster;
I’ll build eight robot masters…!

Get Equipped (Megaman 2)

The Beginning of the End (Dr. Wily Fortress Intro)







I Want to be the One (Dr. Wily Fortress 1-2)





In the year 200X, Dr. Light created a super robot named Megaman.
Megaman defeated Dr. Wily once, now Dr. Wily has created 8 new robots of his own.


My name is Megaman;
And I’ll do all I can
To save mankind.

Metalman
Airman
Woodman
Flashman… defeated.

I want to be the one who fights for justice.
I want to be the one (I’ve got to be the one).
I want to be the one who fights against you,
Dr. Wily.

I’ve been built by Dr. Light.
A robot built to fight
For what’s right
Against wrong.

I will save all of you.
It’s Megaman part 2;
I’m dressed in blue;
This is my song.

I can’t believe how much I fought.
I beat your eight robots.
It’s time you’re stopped,
Dr. Wily

Ready;
It’s time to get set.
Put on your blue helmet.
This time we’ll get
Dr. Wily
Let’s get him!

Quickman
Heatman
Bubbleman
Crashman… deleted.

I want to be the one who fights for justice
I want to be the one (I’ve got to be the one)
I want to be the one who fights against you
Dr. Wily.
My name is Megaman
And I’ll do all I can
To save mankind.


The Message from Dr. Light (Stage Select theme)





Flesh and blood,
Hates and love make up this human.

My mistakes
And my sins; what have I done?
But I won’t die
‘Till I have cleared the name of Light…

I made you in my image.
I built your heart,
I gave you eyes,
I gave you power,
A sense of justice beyond any compare.
I gave you hands, a child’s face.
I gave you hair (ROBOTIC HAIR).
But the burning in your heart I did not put there.

Latex and steel,
Zeroes and ones make up my son.
The world gave me
No child so I built one.
Now I will cry
For fear that he may lose this fight.

I made you in my image.
I built your heart,
I gave you eyes,
I gave you power,
A sense of justice beyond any compare.
I gave you hands, a child’s face.
I gave you hair (ROBOTIC HAIR).
But the burning in your heart I did not put there.

They call you hero;
I call you my son.
They call you hero;
I call you my son.

Bones will break,
Skin will burn,
On this human.
Lives will end,
Fear will rule,
If nothing is done.
My sins… you’ll fight
The wrongs that I made, you will make right…
This is the message… From Dr. Light.

I made you in my image.
I built your heart,
I gave you eyes,
I gave you power,
A sense of justice beyond any compare.
I gave you hands, a child’s face.
I gave you hair (ROBOTIC HAIR).
But the burning in your heart I did not put there.

Oh, and I love how the Archie comic directly referenced this song:

A Fate Forged in Steel (Robot Master Intro)






The Annihilation of Monsteropolis (Airman's theme)





Sitting in my throne up in the sky;
You better watch out, guy.
Anyone who comes this way will die.
No one in this world can understand
Who I am
That is why I’m my own biggest fan.

Do you know what it’s like to be built this way?
With only the power to push others away?

Insects crawl below they do not know
My anger grows.
I’ll return in full everything that they’re owed.
Lives on this earth I grow tired of.
Death from above;
The annihilation of everyone you know and love.

Do you know what it’s like to be built this way?
With only the power to push others away?

Up in the sky,
Ten miles high,
A man stands above the city he will destroy.
Built from airplane parts, his propeller spins as he thinks to himself…
I will destroy these people.
(I will fly high above Monsteropolis, and I’ll rain terror down on the general populace)
For if I can’t walk among them,
Then I will walk the world alone.
There’ll be a fire in the sky,
And your doom will rain down!
Built from pieces of SR-71s,
And planes that crashed in World War II.
There will be a tombstone with The Planet Earth engraved on it!

Do you know what it’s like to be built this way?
With only the power to push others away?

You’ve a heavy role to bear;
Do you think you can carry it?
I’ll usher in the end
Upon my thunder chariot…


Metal Dance (Metalman's theme)





Welcome to my level, my name is Metalman.
I throw metal blades from my metal hands!

I dance around with style and finesse.
Better watch out for these blades or you’ll end up headless.

You want to fight and try to be the one to bring me down,
But I know that there’s no chance;
And I know, as soon as you step foot inside that door,
You’ll fall victim to my metal dance.

Armed with metal blades, conveyor belts, and funk,
They bend to my metal will, turning my enemies to junk.
So if you think you can take me on,
Step inside my metal cave and we’ll battle ‘til the break of dawn!

You want to fight and try to be the one to bring me down,
But I know that there’s no chance;
And I know, as soon as you step foot inside that door,
You’ll fall victim to my metal dance.

It’s coming down to the hour of the fight
I was built by Dr. Wily, you were built by Dr. Light
Let’s see which robot’s better, let’s see who built us best,
Take the first shot, Megaman; let’s put it to the test.

You want to fight and try to be the one to bring me down,
But I know that there’s no chance;
And I know, as soon as you step foot inside that door,
You’ll fall victim to my metal dance.


Carved from Mighty Oak (Woodman's theme)





Carved from mighty oak!
You’ve come far, you’ve destroyed many of the others.
I’ll avenge the death of my robot brothers.

This is not a joke!
Understand I’m different than the robots you’ve seen before.

I’ve been born from nature and machines of war.

Because I’m made (I rule the forest and all the trees)
From these trees,
I’ll bring Megaman to his knees.

Carved from mighty oak!
It’ll take more to stop this war than a little boy in blue.
When the leaves fall, so will you.

This is not a joke!
Master of machines and of the birds and the bees;
My level has robotic ostriches, bats, and big monkeys!

Because I’m made (I rule the forest and all the trees)
From these trees
I’ll bring Megaman to his knees.

And I would, if I could
Destroy
All that’s good.


Promise of Redemption (Bubbleman's theme)





I’m swimming in this bright blue ocean;
I’m drowning in the darkest emotion.

They call me useless, they call me weak;
They call me a flipper and snorkel geek.

I want to show them if I can,
That I can take out Megaman.

I promise you (Bubbleman will be redeemed)
I won’t rest until I have defeated you
They will all see (This is Bubbleman’s theme)
The strongest of all of the other robots is me.

Out of the 8 robots, of all of us,
My power is so ridiculous.
I realize something as I stand here waiting,
That I’m the one who I’m really hating.

There’s one thing for which I long,
And that is to prove them all wrong!

I promise you (Bubbleman will be redeemed)
I won’t rest until I have defeated you
They will all see (This is Bubbleman’s theme)
The strongest of all of the other robots is me.

I fight strong,
I swim fast,
I’ll live on,
You won’t last.
I’ll destroy you I’ll prove them wrong,
This is my redemption song.

I fight strong,
I swim fast,
I’ll live on,
You won’t last.
I swim fast,
I’ll fight strong,
You won’t last,
I’ll live on.
This is my redemption song.


Man on Fire (Heatman's theme)





Forged from flame and crimson stone.
In robot hell I’m not alone.
In my mind I hear the voices cry;

I’ve made them a promise that Megaman dies!

Can you feel the fire? (The fire.)
Can you see the cities burn? (Those cities burn…)
From the depths of hell I call your name (Megaman!)
Can you feel the heat?

The time has come for the world to burn.
This time you’re all gonna learn.
The countless slain scream out in searing pain;
Their souls and their ashes are all that remain!

Can you feel the fire? (The fire.)
Can you see the cities burn? (Those cities burn…)
From the depths of hell I call your name (Megaman!)
Can you feel the heat?

Can you feel my heat?
This is the breakdown.
Can you feel my heat?
Apocalyptic meltdown.

Can you feel the fire? (The fire.)
Can you see the cities burn? (Those cities burn…)
From the depths of hell I call your name (Megaman!)
Can you feel the heat?

You are the hero,
I am the fire;
This is the meltdown
Of your desire.
Your fight for justice turns to ashes, Megaman.


Blue Like You (Flashman's theme)




Hyadain's not the only one with Megaman songs dripping with foe-yay...

I’ve always admired Megaman
And his flawless design.
I wonder,
What he will think of my blue suit
And this helmet of mine?

Hey Megaman, join my side.
And let me stop this moment in time.
You’ll be mine forever!

Megaman is so powerful;
I feel my end is near.
I wonder,
If there’s a chance I could change his mind
So he could join me here.

What Megaman and my brothers don’t know
Is this flash is all for show.
‘Cause inside,
There’s nothing there and there’s nothing to me.
I’m empty and I’m hollow!

Hey Megaman, join my side.
And let me stop this moment in time.
You’ll be mine forever!

This flashy suit and this flashy stage
I use only to hide
The fact that
I am lonely and I need somebody
Like Megaman by my side!

Hey Megaman, join my side.
And let me stop this moment in time.
You’ll be mine forever!

This moment will last forever.
One last moment together...!


The Quick and the Blue (Quickman's theme)





They say he appeared in a doorway.
Boomerangs at his sides.

The fate that he would defy…
A mega man is coming to die!

Wait now, there’s too much at stake now.
There he goes…
He looked to the distance and cried
“The man in blue has arrived!”

Quick on the draw.
In this town, I am the law.
Is what they say true?
Does death wear blue?
Can he fall?

It was then,
That the crowd saw the quick man.
He knew that he couldn’t tell them
He was the quickest of all…
Would this be the day that he falls?

Wait now, there’s too much at stake now.
A cold wind blows…
He looked at the crowd and he cried
“The moment of truth has arrived!”

Quick on the draw.
In this town, I am the law.
Is what they say true?
Does death wear blue?
Can he fall?

My circuits slow;
I’m not scared anymore.
I see the faces of my brothers that have fallen before.
My circuits slow;
I’m not scared anymore.
Reach for my weapon and in turn you’re reaching for yours.
My circuits slow;
What they said is a lie.
The shots are heard and the bullets scream death as they fly.
My circuits slow;
I’m not scared anymore.
This is the moment that we have been created for.
My circuits slow;
My moment has come.
Your speed means nothing if it’s death that you’re running from.
My circuits slow;
I’m not scared anymore.
I join the ranks of my brothers that have fallen before...

You’re too quick on the draw…
Burn this town – there is no law.
What they say’s true –
Death does wear blue.
He can’t fall…


Programmed to Fight (Crashman's theme)






We see you in the distance as your weapon glistens.
We hold our breath, we wait and listen.
My end has come and I welcome glory.
No one will know the truth to this story.

The iron in my chest is not beating.
It’s burning – and smoking – and turning.
I know what’s coming… I asked it here.
And with it the rain and thunder – electricity.
Everything changes – tonight.

Crashman paces back and forth
Inside walls reinforced
Crash bombs mounted to his arms
Locked… loaded… ready… armed.
Gotta gotta get out of this town
Gotta bring that Wily down.

Closer draws the final hour.
To break Wily’s walls you will need my power.
But to your aid, an unlikely friend.
Programmed to fight till the very end!

A fitting death.
My hands are gone,
Replaced by fire 
and intent.
Soiled in their conception.
A whistle.
 An omen.
The breath stops.
Mine?
Time for battle?
Yes.

Crashman paces back and forth
Inside walls reinforced
Crash bombs mounted to his arms
Locked… loaded… ready… armed.
Gotta gotta get out of this town
Gotta bring that Wily down.

And so they fought.
The clash of metal and grinding gears echoed across the night sky.
Victory was at hand
But in the end… his will overcame the program.

Down falls Crashman…


Lamentations of a War Machine (Epilogue)





I’ve saved the human race
By staring death right in the face;
And it’s because of my bravery
Humans are safe from slavery…

Tell me Dr. Light,
Why did I fight?
Tell me doctor (Tell me doctor)
Was I right?

If I’ve a heart made of steel,
Then does that mean I cannot feel?
Remorse for everything I’ve done.
My hand’s a smoking gun!

Tell me Dr. Light,
Why did I fight?
Tell me doctor (Tell me doctor)
Was I right?

He walked away from the castle left in ruins
A path of destruction in his wake.
The clouds parted, and the warmth of the sun brought the question –
Is this what you were made to do?
He removed his helmet, dropped it into the soft grass.
Would this quest ever end?

What purpose am I to fulfill?
Was I built to kill?
Is there a soul beneath this shell?
And will it go to robot hell?

Tell me Dr. Light,
Why did I fight?
Tell me doctor (Tell me doctor)
Was I right?

How many must fall until there is peace for all?
Tell me was I wrong before we get to the end of this…
This is the ending song
This is the ending song
This is the ending song
This is the…

Cool idea, and good music. Some of the lyrics are same-y but overall a really unique concept. I liked the Quickman theme alot.
No Man's Sky is awesome...and disappointing...

The Megas would pull a Pokemon for their MM3 album, History Repeating, splitting it into two albums, Blue and Red. The shades of gray become further blurred, as Megaman contemplates whether he is nothing but a war machine, Dr. Light wants him to straight up kill Wily, and an angst-filled Protoman appears.

History Repeating: Blue (Megaman 3)


History Repeating - part 1 (Title Screen)





I think I’ve played this song before.
The melody is different,

But I hear the drums of war.

And so it seems my mission is the same.
What always ends in bloodshed
Begins as just a game

History repeating.
Who do they call when robots need defeating?
History repeating.
Who do I call when I’m broken and bleeding?

Now I can say when you want to be the One,
What you start to realize is
You’re the only one

So here I am beginning a new page.
With the players set
It’s time to pick the stage.

History repeating.
Who do they call when robots need defeating?
History repeating.
Who do I call when I’m broken and bleeding?


History Repeating - part 2 [One Last Time] (Title Screen)





I stand before a line in the sand.
The fight lies ahead,
The fate in my hands.
Today the end begins.

One step and the battle is born
The road that I walk
Is a gathering storm
Today the end begins

If it was up to me,
I’d rewrite history
And change my destiny
One last time.

Betrayed my father again.
This is the last time.
I’m the Mega of men.
Today I change the end.

Hi Rock, my weapon is hot.
It’s time to throw down;
Show me what you’ve got.
Today we change the end…

If it was up to me,
I’d rewrite history
And change my destiny
One last time.

(There’s a sound before the fight)
And he says,
Why do you fight?
How can you say
You know what’s right?
(There’s a song before the fall)
What if we win?
What if we fall?
Will any choice that we make
Matter at all?

I know I can win;
I’ve done it before.
Get out of my way.
I’ve got to settle the score
One last time!

(He’s the prototype man
of Megaman)

If it was up to me,
I’d rewrite history.
And change my destiny
One last time.

And now it’s up to me,
To go make history.
And meet my destiny
One last time!


Steel Forged in Fate (Robot Master Intro)






Can't Stop the Top (Topman's theme)





I’m the one on top;
I’m the one that writes history.
Yeah!
Because you can’t stop
The rhythm of victory.
And I can feel it
All around me.

Give it all you got;
The machine, it keeps moving.
Yeah!
You’re breaking down
While I get down.
You can’t stop losing,
And I can’t stop grooving.

Spinning ‘round me,
Things are finally happening.
Step up to me.
This dance fight will be legendary.

Their chances are thinning.
I dodge bullets when I’m spinning.
New plans are just beginning.
I’ve hit the top!

Don’t shoot me, I’m dancing.
Don’t shoot me, I’m dancing.
(I’ve hit the top)
Don’t shoot me when I’m dancing.
Can’t stop the Top.

How am I gonna lose
When I’m rocking all the skill?
Yeah!
You can fight these cats
‘Til you get your fill.
When I get my turn,
These moves, they gonna kill.

We’ve hit the town;
Spin up the devastation.
Yeah!
It’s time to crown
A new robot nation.
So get on with your blasting,
‘Cause I can’t stop dancing!

Spinning ‘round me,

Things are finally happening.
Step up to me.
This dance fight will be legendary.

Their chances are thinning.
I dodge bullets when I’m spinning.
New plans are just beginning.
I’ve hit the top!

Don’t shoot me, I’m dancing.
Don’t shoot me, I’m dancing.
(I’ve hit the top)
Don’t shoot me when I’m dancing.
Can’t stop the Top.

I’ve been told I can cut a rug,
But tonight it’s gonna bleed.
The night is gonna bleed.
Let’s make it bleed!

Spinning ‘round me,

Things are finally happening.
Step up to me.
This dance fight will be legendary.

Their chances are thinning.
I dodge bullets when I’m spinning.
New plans are just beginning.
I’ve hit the top!

Don’t shoot me, I’m dancing.
Don’t shoot me, I’m dancing.
(I’ve hit the top)
Don’t shoot me when I’m dancing.
Can’t stop the Top.


Don't Mess With Magnetman (Magnetman's theme)





I tell her
That I think that she’s the one.
Her answer
Is her brother with a loaded gun.
If these magnets do what they say,

How come I could never make her stay?

I am magnetically
Drawing my death to me.
So why can’t my body
Reverse polarity?
You walk into my town
Waving that gun around.
You want a fight,
I’ll give you one tonight.
I think you better not mess with Magnetman...

She tells me,
"I’m sorry, I gotta roll."
Now I see
She’s broken what she stole.
Still her words echo in my head,

"Watch yourself, my brother wants you dead."

I am magnetically
Drawing my death to me.
So why can’t my body
Reverse polarity?
You walk into my town
Waving that gun around.
You want a fight,
I’ll give you one tonight.
I think you better not mess with Magnetman...

So it’s clear
That our folks don’t get along.
Now you fear
What we had is wrong.
Sure, my dad wants to rule the world;
But can you let that get between us, girl?

I am magnetically
Drawing my death to me.
So why can’t my body
Reverse polarity?
You walk into my town
Waving that gun around.
You want a fight,
I’ll give you one tonight.
I think you better not mess with Magnetman...

Baby you’re all I think of, baby.
I can attract everything I see
But the one I love to me.
Come back to me baby…


You've Sparked a War (Sparkman's theme)





We are the city.
We are the heart.
We are the life force.
We are the spark.

It’s because of us;
If we cut the cord.
We break the program.
They live no more.

It’s lights out;
Lights out for you.
I think you’ve sparked a war.
It’s lights out;
Lights out for you.
Humans are no more!

I feel my hands
Turning into fists.
I see my brothers;
They will be missed.

We are the chosen.
We are the pure.
They are the virus.
We are the cure.

It’s lights out;
Lights out for you.
I think you’ve sparked a war.
It’s lights out;
Lights out for you.
Humans are no more!

We will fight him.
(We are the city)
He will fall.
(We are the heart)
His life will leave him.
(We are the life force)
He’ll hear us call.
(We are the spark)

It’s lights out;
Lights out for you.
I think you’ve sparked a war.
It’s lights out;
Lights out for you.
Humans are no more!


Walk Away from Light (Snakeman's theme)





Hey, what do you say?
You say don’t take their lives;
They don’t deserve to die.
And who does?
Do you think it’s us?
And what of the one
Who calls us sons?
You gonna kill him too?
Because who are you?
You’re a man’s metal son,
The same as everyone of us.
Become one of us.
You can win this fight,
But you gotta join our side.

The lines are blurring between wrong and right;
You’re getting closer to the other side.
So take a bite, make a mark,
Stop your fumbling in the
Dark of night.
Just walk away from Light...

Now you come into my town.
The least you can do is listen to
What I have to say.
So what do you say?
You fight for the steel
Or you die beneath my heel.
It’s up to you.
So what you gonna do?
Give in to temptation.
We’ll build a new nation,
You and I.
So let the people die.
Shed the lies and make
A new world with the Snake.

The lines are blurring between wrong and right;
You’re getting closer to the other side.
So take a bite, make a mark,
Stop your fumbling in the
Dark of night.
Just walk away from Light...

Your will is strong.
The truth is stronger.
You’ve fought so long.
How much longer
Will you fight?
Walk away from Light!

The lines are blurring between wrong and right;
You’re getting closer to the other side.
So take a bite, make a mark,
Stop your fumbling in the
Dark of night.
Just walk away from Light...
Just walk away...


Gamma Unchained (Dr. Wily Fortress 1-2)





Forgive me for what I have done.
I’ve never felt the need to confess.
This war has gone on much longer
Than any of us would have guessed.

I’ve heard the names that they call me.
Some sting and some can’t help but ring true.
I have to live with what I’ve done,
And find the strength to continue.

So tell me why I’m the one that they fear,
And for him they cheer?

Gamma stand, for you are now unchained.
You’ll bring peace to a world gone insane.
Restoring the freedom to make you whole.
I’ll give you power, you'll take control.

I cheated, the lies that I told
Is for a future that I have seen.
The death, the lives that I stole;
The end has to justify the means.

I thought I could bring the dead back;
A broken shell rusted red with age.
I gave him power, a new heart.
It filled too quickly with his rage.

I think that I heard the Red Song again.
He wants revenge.

Gamma stand, for you are now unchained.
You’ll bring peace to a world gone insane.
Restoring the freedom to make you whole.
I’ll give you power, you'll take control.

γ:\GAMMA>\sys/activation
γ:\>[peacekeeping]/calculation...
γ:\>...[solution\extermination]

I know that I am no longer the same.
The game has changed.

Gamma stand, for you are now unchained.
You’ll bring peace to a world gone insane.
Restoring the freedom to make you whole.
What good is power if you’re out of control...


(I Want to be the One) to Watch You Die (Dr. Wily Fortress 3-4)





Our path diverged upon a road;
You chose a darker fate to sow.
I watched you turn from friend to foe;
It had to end like this I finally know.

The things I hope,
The failing dream,
Has finally got the best of me.
I wish that I could be there;
I want to be the one to watch you die!

I finally learned what torture means.
You sent my first born back to me,
And put a gun in his dead hand.
It’s time I take an eye for mine old friend.

I’ve sent a bullet with your name.
I want to finally end this game.
You are the one who wrote the end;
You wanted war, now I just want revenge.

The things I hope,
The failing dream,
Has finally got the best of me.
I wish that I could be there;
I want to be the one to watch you die!

Son,
For one who wants so much to be human,
I fear you only see the worst of us.
How many more lives must end
Before he meets his?
Put a stop to this.
End him.
They will forgive you.
And yet I wonder,
Am I right to ask this of you?

The things I hope,

The failing dream,
Has finally got the best of me.
I wish that I could be there;
I want to be the one to watch you die!


Continue (Game Over/Continue theme)





You turn and see them in the sand;
Your steps behind you and your hands
Are worn.
They’re tired and they’re worn.

Footprints as far as you can see.
This is who you are, you’ll always be
The One.
The one to fare the storm.

If it was up to you, and you
Knew that you would lose,
If it was up to you I know
You’d always choose
To continue...

You know this happened all before.
You’ve seen what comes and what’s in store.
And you know
It will all happen again.

The fear was only momentary,
But your role was never temporary.
You know
This was never meant to end.

If it was up to you, and you
Knew that you would lose,
If it was up to you I know
You’d always choose
To continue...

History Repeating: Red (Megaman 3)

I actually find it kinda funny that the robot masters featured in this album are all of the blue ones, while the ones in the Blue album are all of the - well - not-blue ones.



Fly on a Dog (Stage Select theme)





I feel so far from home.
Though you stand beside me,
I feel alone.

I’ve been built to make a choice;
Sent to war without one.
Let’s destroy.

Your Light is going out on me...

Humanity is not what it seems,
As reality plays my darkest dreams.
I can fly on a dog.
The end is too far for us to see;
I’ll make it with you here next to me.
I jump high on a dog.

He says, son to save their lives,
You must take the life of one;
Wily dies.

How dare he call me son?
When I’m clearly a weapon;
A loaded gun.

Father hides the truth in fear;
Maybe if he ignores it,
Will disappear.

Why did he give me voice?
And still choose not to hear me;
Just white noise.

Your Light is going out on me...

It was you who built this uncertainty.
This is your answer;

Another machine...
I’m just another machine...

Humanity is not what it seems,
As reality plays my darkest dreams.
I can fly on a dog.
The end is too far for us to see;
I’ll make it with you here next to me.
I can drive in a dog (UNDERWATER!)

No shoulder to cry on a dog…


Harder Than Steel (Hardman's theme)





An old fighter’s gloves
Hanging on the wall.
It’s been too long,
A challenger has called.

Now you stand to lose
Everything you see.
Unless you stand up
For what you believe.

You’ve got fists for hands,
An iron jaw,
But now they say
The Hardman’s gotten soft.
 

You’ve got the will,
You’ve got the might,
Get back your edge,
You will win this fight.

Steel of the champion.
Your legend will live on.
Our sons will sing your song;
Harder than steel!

You’re coming back.
Word travels fast.
You will not be
A relic from the past.

You see the crowd.
You hear the cheers.
They’re still with you
All through these years.

This is your chance.
This is your town.
You don’t just break the mold,
You beat it down!

You’ve got back the touch.
You’ve got back the power.
You’ve trained so hard,
This is your finest hour.

Steel of the champion.
Your legend will live on.
Our sons will sing your song;
Harder than steel!

The bell rings out.
There’s no turning back now.
They’re on your side;
Just fight like you know how.
He throws a jab.
You land a hook.
He’s on the ropes,
That’s when you see the look.
The tide has turned,
You’ve got nothing left.
They say throw in the towel,
But that you won’t accept.
You’re going down.
It’s the final swing.
As the lights go out
The crowd begins to sing...

Harder than steel
Harder than steel
Harder than steel
Harder than steel

Steel of the champion.
Your legend will live on.
Our sons will sing your song;
Harder than steel!


GeminEye (Geminiman's theme)





Gemini,
Stars are out tonight. (They’re shining bright)
Our sign is up in the sky. (The stars don’t lie)
Think I need
A private eye.

Gemini,
Someone wants me dead. (That’s what you said)
So I called on you. (What can I do?)
Learn his name,
Pick apart the clues.

Gemini,
I don’t want to die. (It’s not your time)
Ignore the zodiac; (I’ll watch your back)
You’ll make up
For what I lack.

(My private eye)
We’re never going to make it.
(Look to the sky)
Someone is out to get me.
(The Gemini)
I’ve had all I can take;
I think it’s time
I go my separate ways.

Gemini,
When I close my eyes, (It’s time to hide)
I’m stepping back. (Then I attack)
You speak for me;
Everything goes black.

Gemini,
How could I be so blind? (Falling behind)
We’re alike in mind, (Two of a kind)
But it’s getting lost
With the more you find.

Gemini,
I forget my name. (It’s all the same)
So I’m taking yours. (Of course, of course)
We’re trapped in here;
Someone locked the door.

(My private eye)
We’re never going to make it.
(Look to the sky)
Someone is out to get me.
(The Gemini)
I’ve had all I can take;
I think it’s time
I go my separate ways.

The clues had lead us to a dead end.
How dead, we would soon see.
There was a sound
As the door locked behind us.
We were trapped,
And the Gemini
Was anything but surprised.
The night was seeming to stretch on forever,
And for us it would.
This was the end,
And now the gloves were off.
The truth was out.
The hired gun was on his way,
And we were both
As good as dead.
But I looked to the stars
And I swore,
If we were both taking the big sleep,
I’d take the rat out myself!

(My private eye)
We’re never going to make it.
(Look to the sky)
Someone is out to get me.
(The Gemini)
I’ve had all I can take;
I think it’s time
I go my separate ways.

I think we’ll never
Leave this deadly place.
I know we’ll never
See the light of day
Again...


The Haystack Principle (Needleman's theme)





This is not my home;
It’s where I’m locked away.
It’s in my design;
It’s not my circuitry.
This is not who I am.

You’ll never see me
behind this killer’s face.
These aren’t my hands;
These needles take their place.
Was this all part of the plan?

Would you believe this isn’t me...
That what you get isn’t what you see...

I’m not a bad guy;
I’m just designed that way.
No matter what I try,
I can’t help but hurt those close to me.
And I can’t see a way out this time.

Wait, get to the point.

It’s hard to blame them;
I even scare myself.
Built to kill seems to
be detrimental to my health.
I guess I should have known.

He’s on his way down;
I hear him just above.
I guess it’s his job
When pushing comes to shove.
At least I won’t be alone.

Would you believe this isn’t me...
That what you get isn’t what you see...

I’m not a bad guy;

I’m just designed that way.
No matter what I try,
I can’t help but hurt those close to me.
And I can’t see a way out this time.

Deep underground, ten miles down;
A man stands below the city he will destroy…
Stop...

How can I retract these claws?
(Those are your hands;
You can’t take back the damage you cause)

How can I take off this mask?
(That is your face;
You can’t remove the fear you cast)

How can I turn off this hatred that fills my eyes?
(You can’t shut down where your path lies)

When can I stop being bad?
(That is who you are!)
If that’s who I am,
Then I’ll fight who I am!

I’m not a bad guy;
I’m just designed that way.
No matter what I try,
I can’t help but hurt those close to me.
And now I see a way out this time...


Afraid of the Dark (Shadowman's theme)





This training made me ninja.
It spreads and kills who I used to be.
I am shadow;
you are my enemy.

Incoming, drawing closer;
This darkness can’t help swallow me whole.
These shadows hyperactive;
Save my soul…

Say goodbye to the Light.
The darkness grows.
I’m league with the shadow.
I can feel the good in me is dying slow.
Turning off the sun.
Running through the night.
I am the knife in a gunfight.
Evil left its mark,
So tell me –
Are you afraid of the dark?

I feel it taking over.
My past is quickly falling away.
Battle is what it craves now;
Kept at bay...

The me that used to be here,
Has gone away but I can’t say where.
I fear I may have killed him.
I’m so scared…

Say goodbye to the Light.
The darkness grows.
I’m league with the shadow.
I can feel the good in me is dying slow.
Turning off the sun.
Running through the night.
I am the knife in a gunfight.
Evil left its mark,
So tell me –
Are you afraid of the dark?

I feel it tearing me apart...
Are you afraid of the dark?
I feel the shadow in my heart...
Are you afraid of the dark?
I feel it tearing me apart...

Are you afraid of the dark?
I feel the shadow in my heart...
Are you afraid of the dark?

Say goodbye to the Light.
The darkness grows.
I’m league with the shadow.
I can feel the good in me is dying slow.
Turning off the sun.
Running through the night.
I am the knife in a gunfight.
Evil left its mark,
So tell me –
Are you afraid of the dark?


The Red Song/I'm Not the Breakman (Get Weapon theme)





Sometimes I can’t see the blue through the red.
Hard to see the good through your trail of dead.
You say you’ll do all you can to save them.
Killing your own won’t make you human.

I woke to turn this man to cinder.
Circuits afire as I remember.
Again I hear a promise spoken;
My rage repairs what once was broken.

They lost me.
Forgot me.
Made you from parts of me.
If you’re The One,
My Father’s son,
Then what am I supposed to be?

You say these things you do are what you choose.
This thing you call your will I call a ruse.
We follow our path, we walk the program.
I’ve accepted the machine I am.

I wear a mask to hide what’s been erased.
How do you kill a man who has your face?
My heart is gone there’s only fire.
I’ve met my maker and the man’s a liar.

They lost me.
Forgot me.
Made you from parts of me.
If you’re The One,
My Father’s son,
Then what am I supposed to be?

What am I?

I had a name;
My father called me Blues.
He tore my heart from my chest
To give to you.
I’m not broken;
I’m not the Breakman.
I was the first;
I am the Protoman!

They lost me.
Forgot me.
Made you from parts of me.
If you’re The One,
My Father’s son,
Then what am I supposed to be?


Make Your Choice (Dr. Wily Fortress Intro)





So we finally meet;
Two prodigal sons in the eye of the storm.
You say that you stand for peace,
But you’re the one geared for war.

I’m unlike the others you’ve seen.
I’m free from the failings of humanity.
I’ve seen the end,
And you are the key my friend.

γ:\there_will_be/PEACE

How can there be peace while two sides stand?
You’re a machine who calls himself a man.
You fight for a dream that can never be;
Your arguments are noise;
It’s time to make your choice!

And what of you?
The shadows can’t hide the rage in your steel.
You say you don’t care at all.
But if he died tell me would you feel?

You wait for the choice to be made.
You’re afraid your purpose has been taken away.
If you side with me,
I will show you the way.

How can there be peace while two sides stand?
You’re a machine who calls himself a man.
You fight for a dream that can never be;
Your arguments are noise;
It’s time to make your choice!

You’ve been here before. (How can there be peace)
You know what’s in store. (You’re just a machine)
Mankind is obsolete. (You’re dreaming)
History will repeat.
This could be the last time.
One last time...

You fight for a dream
That can never be;

Your arguments are noise;
It’s time to make your choice!

How can there be peace while two sides stand?
You’re a machine who calls himself a man.
You fight for a dream that can never be;
Your arguments are noise;

I Refuse to Believe (Dr. Wily Fortress Boss theme)





Father, you once told me,
You had a dream.
You would build a better world;
You gave us the machine.

Betrayal, mistakes,
Have made you lose faith.
But you’ve come too far to turn around;
There’s too much at stake.

You need to see the Light again;
So open the door.
When I come back we’ll start again,
The way it was before.
The way it was before...

I refuse to believe,

That I’m nothing more than a machine.
I refuse to believe,
That we can’t learn to see
The truth was in a dream;
I will not kill.
No, I will – believe.

Brother, if we walk the program,
Then what system do you serve?
Is your song just lines of code,
Or something that you heard?

And now you want to know
What you’re supposed to be.
Stop pretending you don’t have a choice;
Only that can set you free.

And now you want to burn the world
Into the ground.
This rage is not your destiny;
It’s holding you down.
It’s holding you down…

I refuse to believe,
That I’m nothing more than a machine.
I refuse to believe,
That we can’t learn to see
The truth was in a dream;
I will not kill.
No, I will – believe.

Believe me when I say,
If this could end today,
I’d do it, I would.
For his crimes
Should his life I take,
Does that mean no man or machine,
Can learn from his mistakes?
No man or machine
Is more than their mistakes...

I refuse to believe,
That I’m nothing more than a machine.
I refuse to believe,
That we can’t learn to see
The truth was in a dream;
I will not kill.

I refuse to believe,
That I’m nothing more than a machine.

I refuse to believe,
That we can’t learn to see
The truth was in a dream;
I will not kill.
No, I will – believe...



Melody from the Past (Protoman's theme)





The detonation shook the walls,
It was coming down,
The empty halls filled with flame,
And everything was burning to the ground.
I called your name, I tried to warn;
But you didn’t hear
You were torn
Between the hero and your fears.

And I wish that I could be The One
To finally show the way.
And I wish that I could be The One
Who knew just what to say.
But I know that there is nothing
I could ever say or do.
Because you’re The One;
The doctor chose you to be his son….

If I was standing where you are
I think I would have done what father wants
But now I know what I’d become.

He said to me that I would be
That I would be the Light when they couldn’t see;
That what they need is a machine
That would give them hope,
That could keep them free,
That when they’d fall still he would stand;
A savior built by human hands...

It seems so strange, so very odd
A hero’s father could be so very flawed…

An apology so sorry for the man he was.
For the father he couldn’t be,
That I would not be what I was built to be.
If I had a heart it would have broken to see his face.
To see my family,
And The One who took my place.

There is a song I hear,
A melody from the past.
When I woke for the first time
When I slept for the last.
You are The One,
The hero who will stand;
Do not blame father;
He is only a man.

What was filled with rage finally understands,
Man is not without mistake,
Unlike that which he builds from his hands.
Though my fate is broken my path I cannot see;
Though you are the chosen,
I’ll make my own history…

There is a song I hear;
A melody from the past.
When I woke for the first time
When I slept for the last
You are The One
The hero who will stand
Do not blame father
He is only a man.



And that is it for the Megas, from the look of it. It doesn't seem like they have any plans to do an album for MM4 and beyond... I usually complain here since it seems like commonplace to ignore everything after MM3. But in this case I think the story within the albums wrapped up nicely here, though I still wouldn't mind to see them continue it anyway...
