ZachVGM MM3 is a game with a premise, but no story; names, but no characters. Until The Megas got it. The characters are flawed and fascinating. The story is gripping. The music is haunting and catchy as hell. I've technically listened to other albums since I got this one, but not that many... Favorite track: Walk Away from Light.

Ligma Dragoon I usually steer clear of video game-related music with vocals, but you guys really manage to pull it off. Favorite track: History Repeating Pt.2 (One Last Time).

I think I've played this song before The melody is different, but I hear the drums of war 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... Is you're the only one So here I am, beginning a new page Let the player settle; 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?

I stand before a line in the sand The fight lies ahead; 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... And 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 got Today, we change the end... And if it was up to me I'd rewrite history And change my destiny One last time And you says, why do you fight? (There's a sound before the fight) How can you say you know what's right? What if we win? What if we fall? (A song before the 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 gotta settle the score One last time (He's the prototype man of Mega Man!) And if it was up to me I'd rewrite history And change my destiny One last time One last time And now it's up to me To go make history And meet my destiny One last time One last time...

I'm the one on top, I'm the one who writes history, yeah (Yeah!) 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 (Yeah!) 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 (Can't stop the top) How am I gonna lose when I'm rocking all the skill? Yeah (Yeah!) You can fight these cats 'til you get your fill When I get my turn, these moves, they're gonna kill We've hit the town, spin up the devastation, yeah (Yeah!) It's time to crown the 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 (Can't stop the top) Now, I've been told I can cut a rug, but tonight it's gonna bleed (Tonight, it's gonna bleed) Let's make it bleed (Let's make it bleed!) (Make it bleed!) (Tonight, it's gonna 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 (Can't stop the top) You can't stop it.

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, come on! 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, come on! 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 Baby come back to me baby

We are the city, we are the heart We are the lifeforce, 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 (Lights out!) I think you've sparked a war It's lights out, lights out for you Humans are no more I can 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 (Lights out!) 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 (Lights out!) I think you've sparked a war It's lights out, lights out for you Humans are no more

Hey What do ya 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?" Ya gonna kill him too? 'Cause who are you? You're a man's metal son The same as every one of us Become one of us You can win this fight But you gotta join our side All the lines are blurring between wrong and right You're getting closer to the other side To take a bite To make a mark Stop your fumbling in the dark of night (Dark of night) Just walk away from light Just walk away from light So now You come into my town The least you can do is listen to What I have to say So do ya say? You fight for the steel or you die beneath my heel? It's up to you What'cha gonna do? Give in to temptation; we'll build a new nation You and I Let the people die Shed the lies and make a new world with the Snake All the lines are blurring between wrong and right You're getting closer to the other side To take a bite To make a mark Stop your fumbling in the dark of night (Dark of night) Just walk away from light Just walk away from light Your will is strong; the truth is stronger You fight so long, how much longer? Your will is strong, the truth is stronger You fight so long, how much longer (will we fight?) Walk away from light All the lines are blurring between wrong and right You're getting closer to the other side To take a bite To make a mark Stop your fumbling in the dark of night (Dark of night) Just walk away from light Just walk away from light Just walk away... (Just walk away!)

Initialization complete. System activation in 3.02 minutes... 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, some can't help but ring true I have to live with what I've done And find the strength to continue Tell me why I'm the one that they fear And for him they cheer? Gamma stand for you are now unchained (You are now unchained) You'll bring peace to our world gone insane Restoring your freedom to make you whole (You are now unchained) I'll give you power you take control I've cheated, the lies that I've told Is for a future that I have seen The death, the lives that I've stole The end has to justify the means I thought I could bring the dead back Broken shell rusted red with age I gave him power, a new heart It failed 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 are now unchained) You'll bring peace to our world gone insane Restoring your freedom to make you whole (You are now unchained) I'll give you power, you take control All systems online Gamma!

You are now unchained You're out of control!

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've 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 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 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 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...

You turn and see them in the sand Your steps behind you and your hands of war 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 You know 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 You know that you would lose If it was up to you, I know You'd always choose... To continue (To continue) If it was up to you... If it was up to you, and you You know that you would lose If it was up to you, I know You'd always choose... To continue (To continue) If it was up to you... If it was up to you, and you You know that you would lose If it was up to you, I know You'd always choose... To continue (To continue) If it was up to you...
