        The Main Theme has no lyrics, so you might only find ways of listening to
        it, here. This song is long and much diversified inside itself, sometimes
        you have an action-like fast music and other times you get a slow
        orchestrated song, you might find it difficult to recognize it every time,
        the best way is having the song somehow

        ====  LYRICS  ====
    
    
        What a thrill
        With Darkness and silence through the night
        What a thrill
        I'm searching and I'll melt into you
        What a fear in my heart
        But you're so supreme!
    
        I give my life
        Not for honor, but for you (snake eater)
        In my time there'll be no one else
        Crime, it's the way I fly to you (snake eater)
        I'm still in a dream of the snake eater
    
        Someday you go through the rain,
        Someday you feed on a tree frog,
        It's ordeal, the trial to survive
        For the day we see new light
    
        I give my life
        Not for honor, but for you (snake eater)
        In my time there'll be no one else
        Crime, it's the way I fly to you (snake eater)
        I'm still in a dream of the snake eater
    
    
        == MEANING ==
    
        SPOILERS: If you didn't beat the game, DO NOT read from here on.
    
        What I'm writing here is nothing official, it's just my interpretation of 
        what it could mean. If you have another point of view or disagrees with my 
        opinion, you can send me an e-mail and I'll see what I think of your 
        interpretation.
    
        This song has a really deep meaning, and totally obscure until you beat the 
        game and be aware of what's really going on. Here I'll quote some lines of 
        the lyrics and write a brief explanation of what it's suposed to mean (in 
        my interpretation).
    
        The lyrics are The Boss singing to Jack.
    
    
        "I give my life
        Not for honor, but for you (snake eater)"
    
        Interpretation: We know that The Boss died with no honor at all. He died as 
        a war criminal, although she sacrificed herself and her honor as a soldier. 
        She died knowing it all, and wanted Jack to know it all. She'd didn't die 
        for honor, but would die for Jack.
    
    
        "In my time there'll be no one else"
    
        Interpretation: When she died, Jack was the only one with her. He did kill 
        her.
    
    
        "Crime, it's the way I fly to you (snake eater)"
    
        Interpretation: She'll be known in History as a war criminal, but she     
        doesn't really cares, since Jack knows who she trully was and how honorable 
        she was.
    
    
        "Someday you go through the rain,
        Someday you feed on a tree frog,
        It's ordeal, the trial to survive
        For the day we see new light"
    
        Interpretation: Speaking about the unconfortable situations that Jack is 
        going to pass, surviving in the jungle, but at the end he'll see a new 
        light.
    
    
        That's pretty much it. Thanks for your attention, and let e know about what 
        you think if you disagree, so I can include in the guide, maybe.

        ==== LYRICS ====
    
    
        Son, you've got a way to fall
        They'll tell you where to go
        But they won't know
    
        Son, you'd better take it all
        They'll tell you what they know
        But they won't show
    
        Oh, I've got something in my throat
        I need to be alone
        While I suffer
    
        Son, you've got a way to kill
        They're picking on you still
        But they don't know
    
        Son, you'd better wait to shine
        They'll tell you what is yours
        But they take mine
    
        Oh, I've got something in my throat
        I need to be alone
        While I suffer
    
        Oh, there's a hole inside my boat
        I need stay afloat
        For the summer long
    
        (Break)
    
        Left my Sweet Soul
        Beneath the bed clothes
        I'm not coming down.
    
        Walls have ears but
        No-one hears when
        Nobody's around.
    
        Son, you'd better wait to fall
        They'll tell you where to go
        But they won't know

        How can you say good bye, my love?
        When we haven't even said hello
        I see your face
        I feel your sadness
        I feel your pain inside of me
        Why are you so afraid?
        How can you go on living in the past?
    
        I see your eyes
        I feel your pain
        I feel your sadness inside of me
        Open your heart and smile for me
        You're not the only one afraid to fall in love
        Dance with me again
        And walk this way
        Don't be afraid to love again
    
        Why can't we start all over?
        How long can we go on, feeling this loss of love?
        Why are you so afraid to feel the pain of love?
        Why are you so afraid to feel the joy of love?
    
        I see your face
        I see your sadness
        I feel the pain inside of you
        Why are you so afraid to start?
        Don't be afraid of killing me with pain of love
        Don't!
        Don't be afraid to fall in love again
    
        Don't be afraid to fall
        I'm falling
        I'm falling in love again
        Falling in love again
        How can you say good bye?
        When we haven't even had a chance to say...
        I love you!
        Yes I do!
        Don't!
        Don't be afraid!
        Don't be afraid to love again

        ---- DESCRIPTION and "WHERE YOU HEAR" INFO ----
    
    
        :: Disc 1 ::
    
        01 - Snake Eater
        This song is the Bond-like song featured in the game's opening...which 
        you unlock 45 or so minutes into the game.  Part of it is also used 
        during the last battle, a tiny bit of it is used during the campfire 
        scene, and an a capella version is sung on the long ladder leading up 
        to the mountains.  It is *not* the main theme of Metal Gear Solid 3....
    
        02 - ”Metal Gear Solid” Main Theme (Metal Gear Solid 3 Version)
        ...This is.  It's the third Main Theme, and what a worthy addition!  
        This song, unfortunately, never makes it into the game in its full form. 
        It is cut up into segments and scattered throughout the game.
        The three parts of the game you hear this during are, in the order they 
        appear in the song: When the Shagohod jumps back out of the river during 
        the chase, when Snake is running at the end of the sewers, and at the 
        end of the credits.
    
        03 - CQC
        This is the music that plays on the title screen.  A slightly more 
        interesting version of this song plays in the Camo Index Demo.  The 
        other song featured in that demo never made it into the game.
    
        04 - Virtuous Mission
        This starts off at the very beginning of the first cinema of the game 
        all the way through to the landing at Tselinoyarsk.  The interruption 
        for Hideo Kojima's director credit and the mission briefing is not 
        heard.  The opening part is used a couple other times throughout the 
        game, such as after Granin's "interrogation", but nothing really worth 
        noting.
    
        05 - One The Ground ~ Battle in The Jungle
        This track begins with the shedding of Snake's gear, then launches 
        straight into the outdoor Caution song.  The outdoor Alert theme that 
        follows isn't actually the one used in the game, but is the same one 
        featured on the First Bite CD in "Infiltration Into The Jungle".  The 
        actual Alert theme is quite similar, but not exactly the same.  The 
        outdoor Evasion song never appears.
    
        06 - KGBVSGRU
        This is an extremely shortened version of when Ocelot makes his first 
        appearance.  Oddly enough, this doesn't play during the KGB vs. GRU 
        part of the cinema, but when Snake takes on Ocelot and his soldiers in 
        Rassvet.  It's rearranged a bit, and the guitar comes out much more 
        clearly on the CD version.
    
        07 - Shagohod
        This first plays when Sokolov informs Snake about the Shagohod.  It 
        plays again shortly when Snake and The Boss are reaching towards each 
        other.  It comes up a few more times in the game when people talk about 
        the Shagohod.
    
        08 - Operation Snake Eater
        This plays right after the "intro" sequence, just before the Snake Eater 
        briefing.
    
        09 - Mission Briefing
        Plays during the Snake Eater mission briefing.  I'm not sure if this is 
        the song that plays during the Virtuous Mission briefing or not, but I 
        don't believe so. This song also splays in Groznyj Grad in the 
        Shagohod's hanger once Snake has been subdued and Volgin tells Snake 
        that he knows that Eva is the spy.
    
        10 - Across The Border ~ Snake Meets The Boss
        The first part plays when Snake is shot from the plane and back into 
        Tselinoyarsk.  
        The second part plays when you meet The Boss shortly after landing, as 
        well as in Groznyj Grad when you meet Volgin in the Shagohod's hanger.  
        The final part never shows up in the game, but is featured at the end 
        of the GC trailer (the one with the English voice acting).
    
        11 - Eva's Unveiling
        This starts playing the moment you step out of Sokolov's room.  It 
        includes Eva's introduction on the bike, her massacre of the soldiers, 
        and her formal introduction.
    
        12 - Ocelot Youth ~ Confrontation
        A combination of the music that plays in the pre-Ocelot battle cinema 
        and the Ocelot boss battle music.  This is definitely my favorite boss 
        battle song.
    
        13 - The Cobras In The Jungle
        The beginning of this song is what pays in the cinemas before you fight 
        The Pain and The Sorrow.  It also plays after the event with The Sorrow, 
        where you hear him and The Boss talking.  The last part plays before the 
        battle with The End, when The End dies, and very briefly when Snake's 
        made it to shore after The Sorrow event.
    
        14 - The Pain
        The boss battle theme for The Pain.  I'd like to note that when 
        uploaded from a CD, the ending appears to be cut off a little short. 
        This is because the very last fraction of a second is at the beginning 
        of the next track.
    
        15 - The Fear
        The boss battle music for The Fear.
    
        16 - Fortress Sneaking
        This first plays during the cinema on the docks (when Volgin electrocutes 
        Eva), when Ocelot is twirling The Fear's crossbow at Eva after Volgin 
        leaves from "interrogating" Granin, and again when Sokolov hands the 
        Shagohod data over to Eva.
    
        17 - Underground Tunnel
        This plays when we are introduced to The Fury, just before his boss 
        battle.
    
        18 - The Fury
        The Fury's boss battle theme.  The fast, "infuriated" part doesn't last 
        very long, unfortunately.
    
        19 - Surfing Guitar
        One of the Healing Radio tracks.  It's my second favorite, right after 
        Sea Breeze.
    
        20 - Sailor
        One of the Healing Radio tracks.
    
        21 - Salty Catfish
        One of the Healing Radio tracks.
    
        22 - Old Metal Gear
        This is the song Granin is listening to in his office when Snake sneaks 
        in.
    
        :: Disc 2 ::
    
        01 - Battle In The Base
        This is the Alert and Caution that plays in the indoor areas like 
        Graniny Gorki and Groznyj Grad.  Once again, the Evasion music is MIA.
     
        02 - Volgin, The Torturer
        Plays during the torture sequence, when Volgin punches the Warehouse 
        wall when he hears that The Pain has been killed, and when Volgin 
        beats the living daylights out of Snake in Sokolov's room.
    
        03 - The Sorrow ~ Everlasting Fight
        This song is played suring The Sorrow event, the first part is
        througout the battle, and the second part is played when he and Snake
        talk.
        (thanks to Nathon Peldomsc who told me where the second part plays)
    
        04 - Clash With Evil Personified
        The Volgin boss battle music.  It's one of my favorites (though Ocelot 
        beats him out).
    
        05 - Sidecar - Escape From The Fortress -
        The first of the sidecar event tracks.  It plays from the time you start 
        until you get to the bridge.
    
        06 - Sidecar - On The Rail Bridge -
        The second of the sidecar event tracks.  It plays when you have to snipe 
        the C3 on the rail bridge, as well as during the forest chase sequence 
        after fighting the Shagohod.
    
        07 - Takin' On The Shagohod
        The Shagohod boss battle music.  It was known as "The Treading Behemoth" 
        on the First Bite CD.
    
        08 - Escape Through The Woods
        The first part of this song is the Caution music from the last 2 areas 
        of the game (where you lead Eva around).  The second part is the Alert 
        music for those 2 areas.  The Alert music was a standalone track called 
        "Escape" on the First Bite CD
    
        09 - Troops In Gathering
        This is the song that plays during the scene when enemy soldiers find 
        the wreckage of your bike and start looking for you.  
    
        10 - Life's End
        This plays twice: once when The Boss reveals her scar, and then 
        immediately after the last battle.  The song that plays after her 
        passing is not present (or even on the OST, for that matter).
    
        11 - Last Showdown
        This first plays during the sewer scene under Groznyj Grad when Ocelot 
        up.  It plays again on the WiG when Ocelot wants another shot at 
        shooting Snake.
    
        12 - The Return Of The MiGs
        Pretty self-explanatory.  This plays during the part of the ending when 
        the MiGs show up to start some trouble.  
    
        13 - Don't Be Afraid
        This plays during the romantic scene between Snake and Eva, and is also 
        a Healing Radio track.  It's the only Healing Radio track with lyrics.
    
        14 - Eva's Reminiscence
        The ending sure is long, isn't it?  This plays the morning after when 
        Snake finds and listens to Eva's recorded confession.
    
        15 - Debriefing
        The very last leg of the ending.  This starts as Snake is entering his 
        award ceremony and plays all the way until the credits start.  Too be 
        honest, I was getting a little worried the last part (which plays at 
        the end of the E3 2004 trailer) wouldn't show up.
    
        16 - Way To Fall
        This is the first non-original credits theme in Metal Gear.  "Way To 
        Fall" is a song off of British group Starsailor's album "Love Is Here".  
    
        17 - Rock Me Baby
        One of the Healing Radio tracks.
    
        18 - Pillow Talk
        One of the Healing Radio tracks.
    
        19 - Jumpin’Johnny
        One of the Healing Radio tracks.
    
        20 - Sea Breeze
        One of the Healing Radio tracks, and my personal favorite.
    
        21 - Snake vs Monkey
        The "Alert" music for the Snake vs. Monkey minigame.  I'm not real fond 
        of this track, but probably only for the fact that I was always a 
        pretty upset when I heard it.

            -- DESCRIPTION and "WHERE YOU HEAR" INFO --
    
            01 - Snake Eater (Abstracted Camouflage Remix)
            A hip-hop (sort of) remix of Snake Eater.  It lacks the controversial 
            "tree frog" line, so I guess it gets points for that.
    
            02 - Infiltration Into the Jungle
            This really is pretty much the same as "One The Ground ~ Battle in
            The Jungle" (Track 5, disc 1), but it lacks the part where Snake loses
            his gear, and the Alert and Evasion parts are switched. The Alert theme
            is a bit different from the one in the game.
    
            03 - Escape
            The second half of "Escape Through The Woods" (Disc 2, Track 8) of the
            OST.
    
            04 - Chivalry
            Track 11 (disc 2) of the official OST.
    
            05 - The Treading Behemoth
            Track 7 (disc 2) of the official OST.
    
            06 - Snake Eater (Japanese)
            The Japanese version of "Snake Eater".  Since it doesn't appear on the 
            official OST, I presume it never made it into the Japanese release of 
            the game.  And yes, that is a woman singing.
            I don't have the Artist Info for this track, so submissions are
            welcome (don't just add Wada Akiko to the normal "Snake Eater" info...
            I'll know if you do.

            This is the only original track of this release. While it is
            technically the instrumental version of "Snake Eater", it does
            feature the whispering "Snake Eater" line the shows up periodically
            and at the end. During the opening, you can here that line whenever
            you want by hitting R1. Part of this song was used during the last
            battle.  However, some of the lyrics were used.  It was a combination
            of the instrumental and vocal versions.

        ==========================================================================
        
        Music has played an important role in the MGS series. In this section
        we'll talk about the song in each game of this series.
    
    
        :: Metal Gear Solid :: (1998, Playstation)
    
        Already in Metal Gear Solid the songs were very efficient in its purpose, 
        setting the surrounding and environment for the player, making the player
        feel tense when he was suposed to, making the player feel relaxed when
        necessary. 
    
        MGS1 had also one of the greatest Ending Themes in game industry (the best, 
        in my opinion), actually the game started and finished with this song, 
        playing some pieces during the game itself. It was the vocalized "The Best 
        Is Yet To Come", composed by Rika Muranaka and performd by Aoife Ní
        Fhearraigh, in Gaelic.
    
        The MGS Main Theme was composed by TAPPY and was digitally-made. With fast 
        beats and a really catchy music. All the further MGS themes are based upon 
        this one. You must listen to it to understand :)
    
        Here are the lyrics and translation of the Ending Theme, in case you are 
        curious or something. The song is written and recorded in Gaelic 
        (language), and you can read below the original lyrics plus the Official 
        English Translation:
    
    
        Song Title: "The Best Is Yet To Come"
    
        ==== LYRICS (Original Lyrics in Gaelic) ====
    
        An cuimhin leat an gra
        Cra croi an ghra
        Nil anois ach ceol na h-oiche
        Taim siorai i ngra
        Leannain le smal
        Leannain le smal
    
        Lig leis agus beidh leat
        Lig leis agus beidh gra
    
        Cuimhne leat an t-am
        Nuair a bhi tu sasta
    
        An cuimhne leat an t-am
        Nuair a bhi tu ag gaire
        Ta an saol iontach
        ma chreideann tu ann
    
        Tug aghaidh ar an saoi
        is sonas siorai inar measc
        Ceard a tharla do na
        laethanta sin
        Ceard a tharla do na
        h-oicheanta sin
    
        An cuimhin leat an t-am
        Nuair a bhi tu faoi bhron
        An cuimhin leat an t-am
        Go siorai sileadh na ndeaor
    
        An ormsa na orainne a bhi
        an locht
        Ag mothu cailite s'ar fan
        Cen fath an t-achrann is
        sileadh na ndeor
        Ta ailleacht sa saol
        Ma chuardaionn tu e
        Ta gliondar sa saol
        Cuardaimis e
    
    
    
        ==== LYRICS (Translated to English) ====
    
        Do you remember the time when little things made you happy
        Do you remember the time when simple things made you smile
        Life can be wonderful if you let it be
        Life can be simple if you try
    
        What happened to those days?
        What happened to those nights?
        Do you remember the time when little things made you so sad
        Do you remember the time when simple things made you cry
    
    
        Is it just me, or is it just us
        Feeling lost in this world?
        Why do we have to hurt each other?
        Why do we have to shed tears?
        Life can be beautiful if you try
        Life can be joyful if we try
        Tell me I am not alone
        Tell me we are not alone in this world fighting against the wind
        Do you remember the time when simple things made you happy
        Do you remember the time when simple things made you laugh
    
        You know life can be simple
        You know life is simple
        Because the best thing in life is yet to come
        Because the best is yet to come
    
    
    
        :: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty :: (2001, Playstation 2)
    
        In an upgraded system now (Playstation 2), and given the good sells that 
        the previous version had, Metal Gear Solid 2 was suposed to be a super-
        production, from Graphics to Story, obsiously including the sound work.
    
        Metal Gear Solid 2 got now an orchestrated Theme Song, wich is simply 
        fantastic. It was a version of the original MGS Theme, now revisited by a 
        Hollywood sound worker: Harry-Gregson Williams. The final work is amazing,
        and fits the game very well.
    
        The Ending Theme was once again composed by Rika Muranaka and performed by
        Carla White, now not that epic as the previous one, but with a lot of
        quality too. It is a voice and piano song, with a sax at the end.
    
        The in-game music work was performed by Norihiko Hibino, and he does a 
        great work composing digital music for every different situation, area, and 
        boss.
    
        Here's the lyrics of the Ending Theme, performed by Rika Muranaka:
    
    
        Song Title: "I Can't Say Goodbye to Yesterday"
    
        I stare at the stars, and the sky up above
        And think what am I made of?
        Am I full of sorrow, am I hurt and pain?
        Or am I filled with Love?
    
        I walk by myself on the streets below
        And ask every child I know--
        Do you think tomorrow will bring sun or rain?
        Which one of these will show?
    
        I Can't Say Goodbye to Yesterday, my friend
        I keep holding on 'till the end.
        Out of the darkness, there is no other way
        Than the light leading to yesterday.
    
        It's there that I'll find inner peace, not war
        And dreams that I let slip away.
        I will find the joyfulness, I'm looking for
        Way back in yesterday.
    
        Why can't each of us in the world ever see
        The best things in life are free?
        Little sounds of laughter; a warm heart; a smile;
        A kiss from you to me...
    
        I fall to my knees,
        I cry and I cry,
        Love, do not pass me by!
        Happily ever after,
        Please stay a while; make time refuse to fly.
    
        I Can't Say Goodbye to Yesterday, my friend,
        'Cause I know how good it has been...
        Facing forever
        Here I stand, come what may;
        Bring the old, bring the new yesterday!
    
        It's there that I'll find inner peace not war,
        And dreams that I let slip away
        I await the joyfulness; I'm looking for
        Way back in Yesterday...
    
    
    
        :: Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes :: (2004, Gamecube)
    
        If you don't know, this game was a remake of the original Metal Gear Solid. 
        The game was a result of a partnership between Konami and Nintendo, and was 
        developed by Silicon Knights.
    
        The game music were remade as well, by Norihiko Hibino. He made a good work 
        creating the ambient sound for each area. He also revisited the Main Theme, 
        what (in my conception) didn't fit too well, some of military-like music 
        was added, but it just isn't right. Nothing so terrible, though, it's a 
        decent song for a remake.
    
        The Ending Theme was kept unspoiled (thanks God), so they used once again 
        "The Best Is Yet To Come" composed and performed by Rika Muranaka. One of 
        the greatest Ending Themes in game industry (the best, in my opinion). It 
        was the vocalized "The Best Is Yet To Come", composed and performed by Rika 
        Muranaka, in Gaelic.
    
    
    
        :: Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater :: (2004, Playstation 2)
    
        Well, this game you should know well, since it's what the guide covers. So 
        let's start with the Main Theme.
    
        The Main Theme was composed by Harry-Gregson Williams again, the same who 
        composed MGS2's main theme, a great one. He added more action-like music, a 
        bit of new instruments and that's it. The song is brand-new, but at the end 
        it reminds (if not entirely copies) the MGS2 main theme. I like it very 
        much, and it fits the game too well.
    
        Now, about the Opening Theme. It's the first time it happens in the series, 
        having an opening theme. And this one resembles the James Bond's opening 
        themes, and it has a purpose doing so. You can find the lyrics in this 
        guide (0004), vocalized by Cynthia Harrell, composed by Norihiko Hibino and 
        produced by Rika Muranaka. It's a great song, in my opinion, and 
        acomplishes its work very well.
    
        The Ending Theme wasn't produced for the game, like it had always been 
        before, an existing song was picked up. The song is "Way to Fall", the 
        lyrics you can find in this guide (0005). The song is performed by 
        Starsailor. It's a beautiful song, I just don't know how to describe it. 
        Well, beat the game and listen to it =)
