Track Name: Es-cop-ay (Mega Man X5 & X8)
[Ok, there’s no way out, there’s gotta be a way out!]
[Look, here’s something! “Es-cop-ay.” I wonder what that means? It’s funny, it’s spelled just like the word “escape.”]


escape route
hiding from the great unknown
cause I am an actor and life’s a show
don’t hate you
but when the scene’s unscripted
all your good, can you please restrict it?
get straight through
all I want is the end
like being average is the trend
create truth
it’s easy to fail the test
when you are so afraid of success


complete the trial to the very end
and you know it’s final, can’t be done again
but I know I’ll lose it on the final test
I’ll never prove myself on this quest
what’s the point of even going through this
open door I’ve been appointed to
I’ll only fail and fail again
hey look, the trail opens up ahead

so now I’ve got something to decide
try it, or throw away my life
I don’t think I can handle the strife
but the other way, well, it cuts like a knife
through butter in my imagination
guess I really should be patient
until my confidence comes around
and I really can’t let my family down

I gather my strength and push on through it
I hope I make it, I hope I do it
but then I trip and stumble and fall
*sigh* I knew I couldn’t do it at all
you can try your best to encourage
but it only serves to discourage
I won’t throw myself in the bottomless pit
but now you plainly see where we sit

self-defeat is the name of the game
cause it’s not so neat to fell ashamed
cause there’s always the chance that I could fail
so I’d just rather not set sail
I’ll push it aside and get on with my days
I’ve got too much pride so I’ll just stay the same
and you know what’ll happen? Ill just forget
and do it all again the next chance I get


don’t know what I mean by “escape route”?
well, give me a minute and I’ll show you
gotta prepare, make sure I’m ready
endless reparations for when I’m unsteady
huh? what? I guess I can go now
um, but, I really can’t show how
great I am if you don’t give me time
how spaced I am if you don’t give me mine

think about driving your car in traffic
think about how far there is havoc
defensive driving 101, now
always looking for the way out
disaster’s right around the corner
I’m passionate as a hoarder
of all these moments that could go wrong
count em all up, they’d be a googol strong

anxiety runs
high in this town
you never know
when it’ll come around
if there’s chance I won’t succeed
that’s when it will come and get me
I can’t do it, see, I cannot be
the man that you really need from me

maybe something will cut through the noise
maybe I should go play with my toys
what? no, don’t call me a boy
now let’s pretend it’s the fall of Troy
if I try harder, it might happen
sudden clarity, instead of trapped in
a box I built myself, now strapped in
safe and secure, try to free me - I’ll zap him


if I press on every day
then maybe I will find a way
and if you think you know then say
how to make this thing go away
I need to find some clarity
but everywhere I look, I see
chaos, confusion, and deceit
who is there who can help me?

need to find my confidence
my faith in God never made sense
because everywhere that I went
I let others invent me
but now I have to find time each day
to put my foot down and I’ll say
that I will stop being afraid
of my mistakes I’m unashamed


[Let’s go!]
[Ah!]
[Here’s Brucey!]
Track Name: Main Finger - This Is Madness! (Feat. KingTiger, ladyWildfire) (Sonic CD)
ladyWildfire:
(Ohh, yeah!)

[Verse 1]
KingTiger:

Yeah, yeah, this place is here
because of you, and he's going through
He's gotta get through, you know the deal
You got your due, he's gonna get through
Get yourself ready for life
That's the deal, so here we go
Yo! We outta here! I said, we outta here!

This place is here, and he's going through
You know the deal, he's gonna get through
(Ohh, yeah!)

[Chorus]
ladyWildfire:

You can't do anything, so don't even try
Get some help
So do your Sonic best
Don't even try
Sonic, dead or alive, is mine

(Ohh, yeah!)

[Verse 2]
KingTiger:

Time distortion, you got your portion
Think you got it made, but you're just forcin'
things to go through the the motions
Here he comes, 'cross the ocean to
stop you. He's doin' his part
You wanna give life a mechanical heart
He's gonna tear your plans apart
You had it lost from the start

Use your machines to try and stop him
It don't matter you double cross him
with sawblades or put him in your crosshairs
Blowin' it all, and you haven't lost him
yet. Your prize creation
Your metal blue blur to rule the nations
He wrecked it, no hesitation
You'll lose when you try to race him

[Chorus]
ladyWildfire:

You can't do a thing, so don't even try
Get help
Do your Sonic best
Don't even...
Sonic, dead or alive, is mine

[Verse 3]
KingTiger:

You've set up your last defense
He'll break it down at every chance
He'll do it, you know, with time & rings
So you gotta go with your robots and things
One more time he'll break through walls
One more time he'll bust your balls
Run, swim, warp, or even crawl
He'll make sure you take the fall

[Chorus]
ladyWildfire:

You can't do anything, so don't even try
Get some help
(You know the deal
He's gonna get through)
So do your Sonic best
Don't even try
Sonic, dead or alive, is mine

Ohh, yeah!
Track Name: ladyWildfire - Adventure of a Lifetime (Feat. KingTiger, Sterling Ortiz) (Mega Man 9, Mega Man 4, & Mega Man 6)
KingTiger:
Adventure of a Lifetime, was so sweet
but your Lifetime Adventure ain't complete
all those little moments from day to day
don't ever let them slip away

it's what's in front of you right now that's real
even though it's over and you may feel
empty inside, won't you stay?
"big picture" is how you were made

each moment brings a brand new challenge
and the only question is, will you allow it
to bring you the thrill that you always wanted
or will you run away on an endless hunt for it?

you can search the galaxy for life
but please, just open your eyes
it's right in front of you, this whole time
the grass isn't greener, no matter how you try

ladyWildfire:
the only thing for certain is death and taxes
that along with a few natural disasters
like a tornado or a wave that crashes
into your dreams, and then they shatter

million pieces, million ways
in a split second your life can change
something as simple as a word said in haste
can bring about a great deal of pain

but don't let it all keep you down
take that pain and turn it around
give it all to the ones you love
and no matter what, don't give up

keep your feet firm on the ground
but don't be afraid to dream in the clouds
ignore all the lies and all that stuff
let your Lifetime Adventure take you above

Sterling:
take a dive deep in the ocean
or keep your feet always in motion
you just can't run, and you sure can't hide
from the pain that'll come inside

it may not be a big commotion
it may just be the tiniest quotient
of your life that'll break your stride
and you'll find yourself on a different ride

"Clearly not what you wanted?"
get it in your head to just accept it
you'll find yourself with new affections
and your heart's gonna turn resurrected

I think you will soon see clear
Adventure of a Lifetime; that what you're after!
So we'll take you, on a Lifetime Adventure
That's who we are, the Robot Master Royalty!
Track Name: Prototype #2 (Mega Man 9 & Mega Man 3)
Galaxy Man in the house
with the Robot Master Royalty
bringing it real smooth
I'm baaaack

hey!
weren't expecting this were ya??
put on your dancin shoes!

CHORUS

so battles come and battles go
this one I'll remember
how'd we make it this far, don't know
I sure hope I don't lose my nerve

now all these things have come to pass
and they won't fall in line
I know I'll be the one to last
I just hope I don't lose my mind

VERSE

listen to me now, it's you know who
beats so phat, you can't use a spoon
serve it up right, keepin it smooth
with a brand new taste for you to chew

bringin back the groove for round number 2
never thought the end would come so soon
when this started, I never knew
about how much I didn't have a clue

left the house for a newfound freedom
fightin with the mouse from the magic kingdom
all the different planets, I got to see them
now I'm back where I came from

tell you bout them all as we go along
a diff'rent story with each part of this song
but before all that, let's hit pause
to catch my breath - this level is long...

CHORUS

so battles come and battles go
this one I'll remember
how'd we make it this far, don't know
I sure hope I don't lose my nerve

now all these things have come to pass
and they won't fall in line
I know I'll be the one to last
I just hope I don't lose my mind

VERSE

"when you wish upon a star"
no one's nose could stretch that far
for all the lies they're putting forth
all it's about is Wily's forts

a business deal too good to ignore
but man, it hurts, and what a chore!
it's fine fightin villains, that's what they're for
but 101 dalmations is all-out war!

first we got the candle for fireballs
then we were climbing Moliarty's walls
most of our time was in the duck universe
never thought I'd have to fight Duckworth!

in the end, victory was won
they lost Pochohantas and Mulan
don't think anybody's really gone
be a DVD sequel before too long

BRIDGE

so right now, we're near the home stretch
a bit more to go, can't give up yet
99 reasons to make me fret
but ain't a single one gonna make me sweat

...it's cause I'm a robot... get it?
lot of shots fired and I ain't through yet
it'll go down an historical event
cause when we've won, it'll be "item get!"

VERSE

now we're at story part 2, 2nd half
wound up fightin' in a cosmic death match
but even then, it couldn't last
no way Wily's plans'd come to pass

Mercury first, with all his mood swings
Venus next, who really brought the heat
then our own Earth, which was so bittersweet
next was Mars with his blushing red cheeks

Uranus and Neptune had cold things to say
Saturn's rings just got in my way
the Sun and Jupiter were full of hot air
and Pluto's not a planet anymore - don't go there

now I've always loved outer space
so I never thought I'd get such planetary hate
each and every one came to put me in my place
woulda been the big bang if not for my mates

CHORUS

so battles come and battles go
this one I'll remember
how'd we make it this far, don't know
I sure hope I don't lose my nerve

now all these things have come to pass
and they won't fall in line
I know I'll be the one to last
I just hope I don't lose my mind

that's my story
what, you want to you know about the name?
if you've heard my stuff from last year you might know
see ya!
Track Name: Foreigner (Mega Man 9 & Mega Man V)
people stay
and people go
in distant lands you and I may be

come what may
I hope you know
that you will never be a foreigner to me
you'll never be a foreigner to me


the time was served
and lessons learned
i thought i'd earned
a new reprieve

what i wanted
became so haunted
take it granted
for life unseen


every action
has reaction
and life in traction
cannot stay

despite my efforts
still there comes hurt
when one's life-worth
takes them away



time seems to always have its way I've found
life needs to always change the pace somehow

I have to lose what I have found every time
but I cannot hold you down, no, I won't try



people stay
and people go
in distant lands you and I may be

come what may
I hope you know
that you will never be a foreigner to me


if in time
you do return
I won't forget what you mean to me

a friend of mine
you can be sure
you know you'll never be a foreigner to me
you'll never be a foreigner to me



the life within
starts to breath in
it heals again
gets past the scars

from the start
with breaking hearts
it is quite hard
always so far



time seems to always have its way I've found
life needs to always change the pace somehow

I have to lose what I have found every time
but I cannot hold you down, no, I won't try



people stay
and people go
in distant lands you and I may be

come what may
I hope you know
that you will never be a foreigner to me


if in time
you do return
I won't forget what you mean to me

a friend of mine
you can be sure
you know you'll never be a foreigner to me



it's not so different
all those times as a child

waiting for the very end
though I know it takes a while

I want to be whole
so I just lose control


as we all let go
we learn about what lasts

sometimes we take it slow
and sometimes we take it fast

I want to be whole
so I just lose control
Track Name: Night Terrors (Sonic 2)
*chorus*
So many things of which I'm afraid
(woke up in a sweat from a bad dream)
(and I don't know why, but it sure does seem)
which is why I wish I had stayed
(there's all these people just staring at me)
('cause they don't like how I choose to be)
back where I was, even though I was made
(and now, it all just sends me reeling)
(even though I know it's just a feeling)
for a higher calling 'cause I don't like pain
(I can't shake it, 'cause I'm no good at dealing)
(with what all these people could be thinking)

*verse*
the pain of never living up to other's expectations
the pain of never getting to have life's celebrations
for making it big, or doing it right
and living what others call the good, good life
how could you even want to believe those things?
how could you even want to be so strange?
if that has a familiar ring, you know what I mean
cause approval means attaching so many strings

*b verse*
don't give up, don't give in
and leave the great place that you're in
I don't care if you think you're called
who do you think you are? the Apostle Paul?

*verse*
getting the approval of the ones who raised you
or seeking smiles from someone you crave to
please because of what they do
that's what matters, even though times are few
the times that you waited patiently
patiently for the world to see
just how good that you can be
at earning points for excellency

*chorus*
So many things of which I'm afraid
(woke up in a sweat from a bad dream)
(and I don't know why, but it sure does seem)
which is why I wish I had stayed
(there's all these people just staring at me)
(because they don't like how I choose to be)
back where I was, even though I was made
(and now, it all just sends me reeling)
(even though I know it's just a feeling)
for a higher calling 'cause I don't like pain
(I can't shake it, 'cause I'm no good at dealing)
(with what all these people could be thinking)

*verse*
the pain of always knowing, that the way you're going
cannot reap what everybody else is sowing
if you get success, or gold stars overflowing,
then your friends and family will just be a-glowing
don't you want mainstream approval?
don't you want negativity removal?
what's weighing you down is this crazy lie
that God's got something special for your life

*b verse*
I know you say that God will provide
but it's always good to have a plan on your side
doing that ministry is reward-less
and chock full of riskiness

*verse*
why can't you just be normal, and live like
everyone else, just right in the light
I mean, the light that we are used to
not the one with this spiritual voodoo
what are we afraid of? this crazy love
a spiritual walk with its gifts, because
we can't handle something that new
even if, Lord Jesus, it comes from You

*bridge*
just go to college, get your bachelor's
or better yet, get your masters
you gotta be prepared to do quite a bit
to be successful in whatever you can get
be a good steward and work extra hard
and when you are older, you'll be glad in your heart
that you followed the wisdom of money and career
instead of the risky call of your Mighty Good Leader

*chorus*
So many things of which I'm afraid
(woke up in a sweat from a bad dream)
(and I don't know why, but it sure does seem)
which is why I wish I had stayed
(there's all these people just staring at me)
(because they don't like how I choose to be)
back where I was, even though I was made
(and now, it all just sends me reeling)
(even though I know it's just a feeling)
for a higher calling 'cause I don't like pain
(I can't shake it, 'cause I'm no good at dealing)
(with what all these people could be thinking)

*outro*
now I'm not saying don't take care of your family
I'm just saying there's greater things you gotta see
don't give up your calling, or the dream you've been given
'cause that's always the way that you should be livin'
Track Name: Gario feat. KingTiger, Syllix, Prophecy, & Brandon Strader - Stacking The Odds (Various Sonic Games)
*verse*
hello everybody, my name is KingTiger
and I"m not just some rapper for hire
if I do a guest spot, you know it means a lot
which is why I'm reppin' Sonic here on OverClocked
makin' VG mixes is my game
and it might not get me a lot of fame
but the mainstream thing ain't my aim
but at least for now, someone knows my name

*chorus*
8-bit, 16-bit, or even higher
with these zones we'll never tire
so we'll compete
to make the best beats


*verse*
now that we've got some things established
I think it's time to make a new adage
with the blue blur, you'll always manage
to have a lot of fun, any way you plan it
we're representing our fellow pancakes
serving it up any way you can take
not fake, on your plate, we will never be a flake
'cept a tender, flaky crust every time we shake 'n' bake


*verse*
now on this track with my boy Syllix
you're gonna find a lotta juiciness in it
we're doin' you a favor and bringin' you the flavors
in a blend that you're always gonna savor
you've got Gario bringin' you the mix
just like Mario does hat tricks
but instead of bopping' blocks, he's makin' your head bop
with a Sonic mix that rocks your socks off
Track Name: Ruined Puppet (Feat. Martha Irvine) (Sonic 3D Blast)
*chorus*
I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was doin' just because you thought up
something different 'cause it's not what you want

I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was called to all because you think
way too highly of what you say you see

*verse*
LOST
the battle that I tried to win
'cause here we are, on the same ride again
you don't see, you're always trippin'
you don't get that I think different
the world is upside down and spinnin' around
and when I say that I was lost and now I am found
you seem to think that all I'm makin' is just noisy sound
but I won't let you when you keep on trying to bring me down

*b verse*
I was lost
but now I'm found
and no one could ever take that away from me

I was blind
but now I see
you so clearly

*verse*
LOST
to the Oh Say Can You See
a classic case of the American Dream
How do you expect me to take you seriously
when all you say to me is "retire early"?
just give some more love to your family
I know it's not black & white like A, B, C, or D
it's not multiple choice, but if it were me
I'd give a little more than what right now I see

and what's this about always hatin' on the poor?
"they must've sinned with their money" what do you take me for?!
I s'pose they always coulda done just a little more
but ain't you ever been in that same place before?
obviously, you ain't in the same place financially,
but apparently, you don't know how to just live gratefully
take what you got and just start livin'
and stop tryin' to get more and hide this all greed and

*chorus*
I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was doin' just because you thought up
something different 'cause it's not what you want

I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was called to all because you think
way too highly of when you speak to me

*b verse*
Why are you
following the
world and all of its cultural pretensions?

you have a
higher calling
so what's your intention?

*breakdown*
aren't we all just
puppets
aren't we all just
puppets
without Christ we're all just
lost little puppets
so hey mister puppeteer
why don't you get outta here?
and get

*verse*
LOST
it is for my wife's wishes
'cause it's her wish to not hear me rappin'
I guess I just like to do what I'm not supposed to
or maybe it's just not what people are used to
hey there, I sure am pleased to
meet you, but I'm not here to please you
and if you don't like that, then please just appease me
and don't bring it up every time that you see me

*b verse*
I follow
the Truth even
if you cannot see it

thank You Lord
for taking these
chains and setting me free

*chorus*
I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was doin' just because you thought up
something different 'cause it's not what you want

I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was called to all because you think
way too highly of what you say to me

*verse*
LOST
in the amount of truth I spit?
or maybe there's too much funk in this?
well take a look, I'm living proof of this
that people are led in different directions
