[Chorus:]
got money on the mind no fear in my eyes
AVALANCHE the squad, so it's time to rise
I'm just going forward, no time for going backwards
the mission: Destroy the mako reactors

they brought it on themselves, we gotta take em out
all in, but we might not all make it out
ending the Shinra, and closing the chapter
the mission: destroy the mako reactors

I never got their names, and I didn't really care to
I just want the money so the mission I adhere to
is simple, I'd join some resistance clique
blow up the reactor, then we split, that's it
and they go on about saving the planet
all the precious resources we been taking for granted
I'm doing me, It's not that i don't understand it
but i'm trying to carry the job out just how we planned it
and in my line of work there's no time for softies
these treehuggers better wake up and smell the coffee
been around the block man, i'm far from a beginner
been in reactors back when i worked for Shinra
and they don't trust me, and I don't like them
and i don't blame them, cause I ain't like them
war? they ain't built for it, trouble's like my wallet
i only find it when I'm never looking for it
so as i set the bomb i start to get a premonition
some kinda feeling this shouldn't be a part of the mission
but i do it, 10 minutes remain
before reactor one is going down in flames
and so we out, we escape to the train to rest
part one of the mission is a complete success
So for now it seems that the good guys are winning
but this ain't the ending, it's only the beginning

[Chorus]

we get back to the hideout later in the day
and the boy Barret's acting kinda shady with the pay
I don't need this, fam, ya'll can go on without me,
halfway out the door when Tifa comes up and stops me
tells me bout a promise that I made back in the day
that if she was in trouble, then i'd be there with no delay
and now here i stand walking out on my chance,
so I agree to take the mission, and
we're leaving town I bump into a dude named Johnny,
childhood friend who found the need to remind me
to take care of Tifa, and yeah I willingly oblige
and next on the agenda is reactor number 5
we hop up the train begin to take a ride,
but not long after that, we in for another surprise
something suspicious, they locking down the train cars
makes it exciting cause i know its bout to pop off
but we run to the first car and hop off,
near miss, we escape unscathed,
unharmed so we continue right on our way
gotta move fast get it done, I ain't got all day
inside the reactor and heading to the core
and the layout is the same as the reactor before
and again when i reach it i feel another light flash
i'm on the floor weak, paralyzed right fast
get up, set the bomb bust out the premises
until we get surrounded by soldiers and the president
he's monologue-ing about taking us under
summons a robot that he calls Airbuster,
we triple team it and eventually defeat it
but the explosion ripped the ground apart between us
I'm hanging in the balance, and i hear Tifa's screaming
i slip, and that's the last thing that i remember seeing...
