lyrics

All up on they high horse like equestrians
A lifetime ago we used to be the best of friends
But things change, now I'm feelin stressed again
Got my sword leveled up let the quest begin

I was born in the sewage of the slums
In war time sought peace, no one ever knew if it would come
We were war buddies, workin on the same team with the same goal, but wit slightly different means
When he hit the scene, he commanded respect, needed something done, every hand hit the deck
Took the first shot, nobody fired back
Accepted no crap, i admit I admired that
He was a legend, his story spun far and wide
And it Scarred my pride down to my heart inside
I took every mission I could accept
Just to make my mark, cause I wanted the power and respect, that he had,
But I was just a plebian, then the war ended 'fore I could to leave again
Then I heard he found some documents
About his true origin and then he got convinced he was not of this earth, bred to be a soldier
The spawn of an alien life form, jenova
Infused with the cells while genres still in the womb
heard the newsand was hellbent on sealing the doom
Of any one who had participated
So he tore the town apart until everything was dissipated
I gave chase, and the saga begun
He released jenova and they both untited as one
Sealed himself in his lair beneath the earth
Plans to take over the world but Not if I stop him first


So Tifa tells me she can reconstruct the pieces of my past
fill in the gaps cause I'm sick of wearing a mask
framerate's mad spotty like a PS1
the story's still cloudy, sorta like my namesake
so wait-- it turns out that what was in my mind
was a memory, a dream, that wasnt even mine
this cant be, I close my eyes it looks so clear to me
apparently nothing is as it appears to be
So in fact i was kidnapped by Shinra
beat down and tortured so I couldnt remember
now i'm hot as a scolding pot, all of us were en-hanced
Mako showers jenova cell implants
crazy part is that the cells duplicate
information, so what was in my head was a mistake
the man i see in my flash backs in fact isn't me,
that would be a cat named Zack
my best friend and confidant, who died in battle
asked me to live for him, and and I mustve agreed to
so i've lived a double life for the past 5 years
told lies to the people and they believed you
but i was manipulated, by Seph
gotta find him, kill him and i'll do it myself
if i have to, but I found a group of survivors
what they lack in skill, they make up for in desire
now we on a quest to unlock this mystery
We mount up, and I guess the rest is history
