(So you wanna know my story, huh? All right.)

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
I Got my sword leveled up, now 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 with slightly different means

When he hit the scene, he commanded respect,
He needed something done, and every hand hit the deck
Took the first shot, and nobody fired back
He took no crap, i admit I admired that
Cause dude was a legend, his story spun far and wide
And it scarred my pride down to my little heart inside

I took every mission I could accept
To make my mark, cause I wanted the power and respect, that he had,
But alas, I was just a plebeian,
Then the war ended before I could to leave again
Then I heard he found some documents
About his true origin and then he got convinced
That he was not of this earth, bred to be a soldier
The spawn of an alien life form, Jenova
Infused with the cells while still in the womb
heard the news and he was hellbent on sealing the doom
Of any one who had participated
Burned the whole town down, killed millions and everything was dissipated
I gave chase, and the saga begun
He released Jenova then they both united as one


So Tifa tells me she can reconstruct the pieces of my past
Fill in the gaps cause I'm sick of wearing a mask
The framerate's mad spotty like a PS1
The story's kinda cloudy, almost like my namesake
But wait-- it turns out that what was in my mind
Was a memory, a dream, that wasn't even mine
This can't be, I close my eyes it looks so clear to me
Apparently nothing is the way it appears to be
So in fact I was kidnapped by Shinra
Beat down and tortured so I couldn't remember
Now I'm hot as a scalding pot, all of us were en-hanced
Mako showers and 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 my best friend Zack
My confidant, who died in battle
Asked me to live for him, and yeah I must've agreed to
So I've lived a double life for the past 5 years
Told lies to the people who believed you
But i was manipulated, by Seph,
Gotta find him, kill him and i'll do it myself
If i have to, then I meet a group of survivors
What they lack in skill, they make up for in desire
Now we on a quest to unlock the mystery
We mount up, and I guess the rest is history
