    March 4, 2005:  The first version of this FAQ got rejected as an 
                    "incomplete".  Oh well.

    March 5, 2005:  FINALLY!  This FAQ is finished!  The "JOURNEY HOME" Song
                    Lyrics will be on here!  So don't worry about sending me
                    the "Journey Home" info.   


2.  My Introduction
    
    This FAQ is all about the lyrics of the two theme songs in the popular
    PS2 hit ACE COMBAT 5:  THE UNSUNG WAR titled "Blurry" and "Journey Home".  
    I am THE PATRIOT, but for "logical" purposes, please call me JJ.  Besides
    contributing to GameFAQS (I have a life, ya?), I'm taking 14 hours
    this Spring Semester at Navarro College, which is 60 miles southeast of
    Dallas, TX.  I will transfer to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi with a plan to
    major in HISTORY.  This is my first FAQ in my life, so please don't give 
    me any grief, OK?

    My major pet peeves are COMPUTER VIRUSES and TROJAN HORSES, so please 
    don't send me any of those!  Also, I don't like a lot of PROFANITY in my
    e-mails either, so please go easy on the language.  Anything sent to me
    in any language other than ENGLISH will be summarily ignored.  My e-mail 
    for those wishing to help me out is:  maverick53100@sbcglobal.net.  Please
    write "ACE COMBAT 5: JOURNEY HOME" as the SUBJECT.  
    
    Please respect my wishes as stated in the paragraph above.  Without any
    delay, let's get on with the show!



3.  "BLURRY"--PUDDLE OF MUDD (From the album "Come Clean", 2001)

    *Credit goes out to the cool Web Site AZ-LYRICS (www.azlyrics.com)

"Blurry"

Everything's so blurry
and everyone's so fake
and everybody's empty
and everything is so messed up
pre-occupied without you
I cannot live at all
My whole world surrounds you 
I stumble then I crawl

You could be my someone
you could be my scene
you know that i'll protect you
from all of the obscene
I wonder what you're doing
imagine where you are
there's oceans in between us
but that's not very far

Can you take it all away
can you take it all away
well ya shoved it in my face
this pain you gave to me
Can you take it all away
can you take it all away
well ya shoved it my face

Everyone is changing
there's noone left that's real
to make up your own ending
and let me know just how you feel
cause I am lost without you
I cannot live at all
my whole world surrounds you
I stumble then I crawl

You could be my someone
you could be my scene
you know that i will save you
from all of the unclean
I wonder what you're doing
I wonder where you are
There's oceans in between us
but that's not very far

[Chorus]

Nobody told me what you thought
nobody told me what to say
everyone showed you where to turn
told you when to runaway
nobody told you where to hide
nobody told you what to say
everyone showed you where to turn
showed you when to runaway

[Chorus]

This pain you gave to me

You take it all
You take it all away...
This pain you gave to me
You take it all away
This pain you gave to me
Take it all away
This pain you gave to me



4.  "JOURNEY HOME"--ENGLISH VERSION PERFORMED BY MARY ELIZABETH MCGLYNN
                    (from the OST to "ACE COMBAT 5:  THE UNSUNG WAR" as heard
                     in the game's end credits; 2004)

    *Credit goes to NAMCO for hiring the right people to produce this track. 
     I don't know who wrote this song, but he (or she) deserves a lot 
     of thanks!  

    *It is also noted that I had to play the "EPILOGUE/CREDITS" cut-scene 
     seven times just so I can jot down these lyrics! 


"Journey Home"

The journey begins
Starts from within
Things that I need to know

The song of the bird
Echoed in words
Flying for the need to fly

Thoughts endless in flight
Day turns into night
Questions you ask your soul

Which way do I go?
How fast is too slow?
The journey has its time within us

If a man can fly over an ocean
And no mountains can get in his way
Will he fly on forever
Searching for something to believe

From above I can see from the heavens
Down below sea the storm rages on
And somewhere in the answer
There is a hope to carry on.

When I finally returned
Things that I learned
Carry me back to home

The thoughts that I feed
Planting a seed
Where time will begin to grow

The more that I try
The more that I can fly
The answer in itself will be there 



5.  THE PATRIOT'S Final Thoughts
    
    I seriously thought that the themes from ACE COMBAT 5 served as a cool 
    back-drop to the story.  It amazes me that one of the characters can fly
    a plane while thinking about his favorite music!  The themes tend to tell
    the story very well, even better than my favorite Tom Cruise movie,
    "TOP GUN".
