-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-Introduction-

Sonic Heroes is the latest installment to the "Sonic the Hedgehog" game series,
created by Sonic Team.  If you don't know that, though, you should probably
just leave now.  In this new game, the engine takes a break from the single-
-character break-neck speed the last two 3D games used (Well, four if you
include ports/remakes).  This time, everyone is broken down into teams of three
(four teams in total) each with a character who specializes in speed, flight,
and strength.  As with the past two "Adventure" games, each team has its
own vocalized theme song.  And, also like before, they're all pretty cheesy.
But people like them (or at least want to know the words), thus I wrote
this FAQ...and you're reading it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Updates-
Version 2.01
Various spelling and typos fixed.

Version 2.00
I suppose this counts as a big update.  Being the lyrics are all upgraded to
the official versions...


Version 1.00
Um...none yet?  This is the first version of the FAQ, so there's a lot that
needs work.  Such as (but is not limited to) the following:
- Correcting mistakes.
- Correcting grammatical mistakes.
- Getting the names of those who wrote the lyrics, played the music, etc.
- Etc.

If you notice a mistake, e-mail sonic_heroes_lyrics@yahoo.com.  Tell 'em what
they'll win, Kelpy!
Kelpy:  *blink blink*
That's right!  Your name in the spiffy "Credits and Legal Junk" section!  But
that's not all!  It will also -specify- what you did!  Ooooh!  Aaaaah!

I'll cut the sarcasm now. Back on subject, that is the e-mail address I have
set aside for use with this FAQ (No, you spam-hungry folks out there, this is
not my normal e-mail address.).  Oh, and opinionated e-mails...such as...

"dood i lizned 2 teh song S0nic Heer0z Th33m a millyon toimez it definitly
says 'im not impresed witout asoound" becuz i tink so n mah frend sayz!!!11"

....will be completely ignored.  Hmmm...or insulted.  Spellcheck is your
friend, people.  And... um... nonsense isn't!  On to the music!

-Song Lyrics-


Sonic Heroes
Performed by "Crush 40"
Written by Jun Senoue & Johnny Gioeli
Author's Notes:  The official lyrics, straight from Sonic Team.  The only thing
I have to say is that it STILL sounds like "stand strong" rather than "stand
tall".  Considering the clarity and mistake in Follow Me, I'm leaving it
"strong". 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What comes up, must come down;
Yet my feet don't touch the ground!
See the world spinnin' upside down!
A mighty crash without a sound!

I can feel your every rage;
Step aside I'll turn the page;
Breakin' through your crazy maze;
Like a laser beam, my eye's on you!

Watch me rule the night away!
Watch me save the day!
Feel my storm is gettin' close.
Headed your way!

Sonic Heroes! (Sooonic Heee-roes!)
Bind you; Confine you; defying your reign!
Sonic Heroes! (Sooonic Heee-roes!)
Setting the stage for a heroes' parade!

I won't even hesitate;
A second left to alter fate;
And you try to strike, but a bite too late;
I've got you hooked by my own bait!

Watch me rule the night away!
Watch me save the day!
Feel my storm is gettin' close
Headed your way!

Sonic Heroes! (Sooonic Heee-roes!)
Bind you; confine you; defying your reign!
Sonic Heroes! (Sooonic Heee-roes!)
Setting the stage for a heroes' parade!

You can bet there ain't no doubt, as the words spill from the mouth:
Of a Heee-roe!
I can chase another day, fight you all the way!
Like a hero!

And together, we stand strong, no matter how!
No one can bring us down!
Heeee-eeey!

Sonic Heroes! (Sooonic Heee-roes!)
Bind you; Confine you; defying your reign!
Sonic Heroes! (Sooonic Heee-roes!)
Setting the stage for a heroes' parade!
Sonic! - Heroes! (Heroes!) (Heroes!)
Sonic! - Heroes! (Heroes!) (Heroes!) (Heroes!)
Give us a reason and we'll run away!



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



We Can
Performed by Ted Poley & Tony Harnell
Written by Jun Senoue & Ted Poley
Author's Notes:  The minor mistakes have been corrected thanks to the official
lyrics sheet.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Woo!  Alright!

Ooooh yeah!

Look out, down below!
Sonic is on the go!
Can't stop this party, 'til we save the world!
This time, not alone;
We've got some friends along
And as a team, we can become even stronger.

Together: we can - overcome all the odds!
It's never as hard as it seems!
Everyone can do something special;
The secret is sharing your dreams!

Yeah!

We can make it, if we all stick together!
We won't give up; not ever!
And everything's gonna be alright!
We all bring out - the best things in each other
Together we are stronger, than anyone else could be on their own!

So much better than alone!

Sonic's in the lead!
Giving us greater speed!
Tails keeps us flyin' high, to stay above troooo-ouble!
And Knuckles by our side, makes this a safer ride
We'll save the world and teach that Eggman a lesson!

Together: we can - overcome all the odds!
It's never as hard as it seems!
Everyone can do something special;
The secret is sharing your dreams!

Noooooo-hooooo! (Yeah!)

We can make it, if we all stick together!
We won't split up; not ever!
It's easier with my friends by my side!
We all bring out - the best things in each other
Together we are stronger, than anyone else could be on their own!
So much better than alone!
(Beeeeetter thaaan al-oooone!)

But together we can - overcome all the odds - its never as hard as it seems!
(Yeeeeeaaah-haa-aaah!)

We can make it!  If we all stick together!
We won't give up, not ever!
And everything's gonna be alright!
We all bring out the best things in each other
Together we are stronger, than anyone else could be on their own!
Can't stop us cause together we are strong!

(Oh yeah!)

This Machine
Performed by Julien-K
Lyrics by Ryan Shuck
Music by Jun Senoue & Amir Derakh
Author's Notes: Doo..doo...doo..doo...the system...the system--  Er, sorry.
Couldn't help but think of Strong Bad.  Complete with old movie--er...game
quotes.  All over-synthesized and such.  Anyway, real notes!  Everything has
been clarified with the official lyrics.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A shadow of myself, just who am I?
Scan horizons!
A tragic mystery.
You could've left me here, sealed inside the pod.
No one would ever know: The Chaos Control!
My true ideeeentity!
The power that is me!

We all danced in fire!
Trapped in this machine!
Don't know how long we've waited!
As the Eggman's watching!

We all danced in fire!
Looking through the screen!
Don't know how long we've waited!
As the Eggman watches!

With Rouge in the fight - eeeleeeectric lives!
Change surroundings!
A jewel in history!
A treasure disappears, as she goes
Miss her as you look away, and know one knows
This power is a key!
This power changes meee!

We all danced in fire!
Trapped in this machine!
Don't know how long we've waited!
As the Eggman's watching!

We all danced in fire!
Looking through the screen!
Don't know how long we've waited!
As the Eggman watches!

(Chaos Control!)
(Chao-)
(Chao-)
(Chao-)
(Chao-)
(Chaos Control!

(Chaos Control!)

(Chao-)
(Chao-)
(Chao-)
(Chao-)
(Chaos Control!)

E - One - Two - Three
You don't know, now I'm gonna show you.
The power that is me.

You try to take me down, stop the show.
Seems you've never tasted fear or loss of control.
The power lives in me.
The power that is meee!

We all danced in fire!
Trapped in this machine!
Don't know how long we've waited!
As the Eggman's watching!

We all danced in fire!
Looking through the screen!
Don't know how long we've waited!
As the Eggman watches!

Team Chaotix
Performed by Gunnar Nelson
Written by Jun Senoue & Gunnar Nelson
Author Notes:  Karma collector was correct.  Everything is official now.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once upon a time, you could be a bad guy,
And you'd live to see another day.
But now you never, boy, you'd be BRAIN DAMAGED
just to think that you could get away.

The power has arrived in a dream team,
A force plus one and one makes three
And when the trail's gone cold and the lies have been told
This crew'll find what you can't see.
Yeah!
Danger hides when the hyper bee flies and the ninja stars fly too.
The muscle is Vector, the karma collector, and he's sworn to fight for you!

TEAM CHAOTIX!
They're detectives, you want on your side!
TEAM CHAOTIX!
Their directive's, tracking down your crimes!
Come along for the ride,
The truth can run but not hide,
For long - the game is on - noooooow!

Remember when stealin'
Used to be a good dealin'
And the crooked life would always pay,
Well, now that the team's in town,
That's all gone underground,
But its a worry to this very day.

A challenge has been issued by the Eggman!
This mission's gonna need them all.
And though his hope's grown thin, and their outlook is grim,
These three are gonna heed his call.

Yeah, Charmy's thing is dishing out first sting
While the green one cheers them on,
Espio is clearly ready to go!
Run down who'd do you wrong.

TEAM CHAOTIX!
They're detectives, you want on your side!
TEAM CHAOTIX!
Their directives, tracking down your crimes!
Come along for the ride,
You can run but not hide,
For long - the game is on!

TEAM CHATOIX!
Sonic Heroes!
What's your problem needs?
TEAM CHATOIX!
Watch those three go make the outlaws bleed.
There's no way you can win!
TEAM CHAOTIX!
If it's trouble you're in!
(Chaotix!)
They're gon-na kick your--!

TEAM CHAOTIX!

Follow Me
Performed by Kay Hanley
Music by Jun Senoue
Lyrics by Mathilde O'Rourke
Author's Notes:  Everything here matches the official lyrics sheet EXCEPT "you
live on the edge of a knife".  The CD has it listed as "we", but that is
actually incorrect...odd.  And the "puh puh" noises are not listed, so those
are written as close to the noises as possible. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anywhere you wanna go;
Anything you need to know;
All the best in life: I wanna get it for you.

Lately I just feel so fine, I imagine that you're mine
In my world you're gold,
I only wanna protect you.

And whatever I want, I get
I want a shooting star!
Whatever I need! I have!
Wheeen I'm wiiith yooooou!

Follow me inside! Outside!  Through the stratosphere!
The moon is shining for you; it knows that I adore you!
Suddenly all the - sadness - will just slip away!
And you will see what I mean,
If you just follow me in my dreeeeaaaams!

I was searching everywhere,
Suddenly I saw you there,
And my love arrived: just in the nick of time.

Life floats on a movie screen, you're the star of my scene.
You live on the edge of a knife,
Lar-ger than life!

And whatever I want, I get
No one could take your place!
Whatever I need! I have!
Wheeen I seeee yooour face!

Follow me inside! Outside!  Through the stratosphere!
The moon is shining for you; knows that I adore you!
Suddenly all the - sadness - will just slip away!
And you will see what I mean,
If you follow me in my dreeeeaaaams!

(puh puh puuh pud-pud-dah-duh-duh)
(puh puh puhdah pu-duh)

Follow me inside!  Outside!  Through the stratosphere!
The moon is shining for you; knows that I adore you!
Suddenly all the - sadness - will just slip away!
And you will see what I mean,
If you follow me in my dreeeeeeeaaaaaaams!

What I'm Made Of
Performed by "Crush 40"
Written by Jun Senoue & Johnny Gioeli
Author's Notes:  Wow.  Things all look good here...for once...I think..-_o;

And still are, because this song was correct.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't care what you're thinking, as you turn to me.
'Cause what I have in my two hands is enough to set me free! (Set me free!)
I can fight the feelin' to resist it over time!
But when it's just too much to take, you sneak up from behind!

Is it me - you say! - you're looking for?!
Let me show you who I am and what I'm here for! (Here for!)

Try to reach inside of me!
Try to drain my energy!
Let me show you just WHAT - I'M - MADE - OF!
Simple curiosity!
Try to take a bite of me!
Let me show you just WHAT - I'M - MADE - OF!
Noooooooooooooow!

Like a million faces, I've recognized them all.
And one by one they've all become a number as they fall. (As they fall!)
In the face of reason, oh, I can't take no more!
One by one they've all become a black mark on the floor!

Is it me - you say! - you're looking for?!
Let me show you who I am and what I have in store (In stooore...!)

(Hey! Hey!  Yeee-aaah!)

Try to reach inside of me!
Try to drain my energy!
Let me show you just WHAT - I'M - MADE - OF!
Simple curiosity!
Try to take a bite of me!
Let me show you just WHAT - I'M - MADE - OF!
Noooooooooooooow!

You can take another life - long - try!
You can take another trrrrrrrrrryyy!

(Yeee-ha-haaah!)

Try to reach inside of me!
Try to drain my energy!
Let me show you just WHAT - I'M - MADE - OF!
Simple curiosity!
Try to take a bite of me!
Let me show you just WHAT - I'M - MADE - OF!
Noooooooooooooow!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Question & Answer-

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q.  Can I submit help?
A.  Yes.  But think it over before you send it.  Don't give me "handy" info
    like on ~this~ (http://www.geocities.com/mecha_wobbuffet_cop/chaotix.html)
    particular webpage.

Q.  Which teams do these themes go with?
A.  Please, tell me you already know...but for those who don't:
    We Can       - Team Sonic
    This Machine - Team Dark
    Team Chaotix - Team Chaotix
    Follow Me    - Team Rose

Q.  Why are your lyrics different from the other's I read?  I've seen, like,
    five different versions of each song.
A.  That's because when the songs were first released, everyone had their
    own little opinions on what all the songs actually said.  Most of those
    incorrect ones are still being passed as correct.  In some cases, only
    parts of those songs are reused.  I have the real rough parts marked off
    in this FAQ, the parts that are hard to understand and are usually
    butchered around with each pass. But some FAQs *cough* just put their
    thoughts of what it "is", and try to tell you it's correct.

Q.  Why is this section so short?
A.  Because I don't have many questions to work with.  Send away, so I can
    extend it.  If I have more information to add later, I will.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Credits-

I'd like to thank Sonic Team for their work on the series.  Yuji Naka, this is
to you.  And if anyone at Sonic Team reads this, remove the double save in PSO

memory card!

CJayC and GameFAQs, the ever-helpful website.

My mom and brother, "TK", for listening to the music and contributing possible
words when I wanted to strangle the singers who did the un-clear parts.. XD

Ken and Isamu, for being great friends. And all you guys from our
'underground'...well....you know who you guys are.  Thanks for being great
friends, too.

Glyde for listening to my long rants on AIM...

 Davis:  Dah! Maybe it says "Find you'll confine in defining your place!" er..
 Glyde:  Eh.....still at it?
 Davis:  *Slams head into desk*

Thanks to genotheblaster, for noticing an embaressing typo in the main theme.
Thanks for the heads up...I hope I didn't miss any other mistakes like that.

...Yet I did.  DVD Smith for informing me of my mistake in Team Chaotix.
Forgot the word "manage".

GodzillaZ for various updates.



Everyone else I can't think of!  I'll add you during an update...if I think
of you, that is...
