(Spoken)
What does Blast Processing do exactly?

Well! Blast Processing is more than an idea, it's more than what's inside, it's thinking!

Blast Processing is taking a cartridge, slammin' it into another one to create an even better cartridge!

And Blast Processing is more than a symbol, it is the fate of all mankind. Blast Processing is your hope!

Track Name: We Ride
Hit the road on our own
Endless war is our home
With hope soon a new day will dawn
So hold me tight we'll ride into the night
All you have to do is hang on (hang on!)

Chorus:
This is our final chance for victory
Back to the past to change our destiny
Warriors fighting for humanity
How can we end this dark insanity
One after one our comrades fade away
Fighting the fight until we're in our graves
Nomads in time we make our last escape
Tyranny ends with us in time

We know not what we'll face
Crossing both time and space
We fight for the dreams cast aside
So don't look back it's our final attack
With passion and fury we ride (we ride)

(Chorus)
(Solo)
(Chorus Reprise)

Refrain:
You can run. We will find you.
To the ends of time: you will never be safe
Destiny can't be changed
Your mission is a waste of time
You'll be made to pay
Once you're in our grasp
Blast Processors!
Track Name: Scrambled Gravity
(Intro)
Mmmmmm yeahhh

(Verse)
Stand tough, hold your guard now
Don't let them ever keep you down
Don't stop, keep on going
Let loose the fire that you hide (inside)

(Chorus)
Oh when you're all alone
And you are so far from your home
It feels like ohhhhhhhhhh

But baby don't be scared
Just close your eyes and I'll be there
To keep you strong

(Verse)
Fight back! Hack the system
Don't let them get inside your head
It's time cue the curtain
Get set! They've rung the final bell
Track Name: Casualties of War
(Master System)
More power than before, sound the drums of war
I fight for what is mine, I'm taking what is yours
So give in to the night, you'll tremble at my might
I will have my way let's end this game we play!

(Saturn)
We've battled many times before
What's one more
You won't win my heart is strong

(Master System)
Every battle we've fought, all the chaos I've wrought
It's that hedgehog's fault he's stopped every plot
With me out of the way you'll surely be his prey
So join forces with me and we'll make him pay

(Mega Drive)
Fields are burning in my home
How can I stop this chaos
I've got to fight this on my own

He thinks he is fast but I am faster (keep on going)
Controlling chaos? Hah! I am its master (it's not over)
I face alone my sacred calling
Fight to the end to keep from falling

Whoa-oh until I die I'll keep us in the sky
Keeping watch over the precious Master Emerald

(Saturn)
Knuckles please listen to my cry
I am not the one who needs to die!

(Mega Drive)
What dark secrets could Eggman be holding (could he be right)
Is that doctor a wolf in sheep's clothing (he's a liar)
Has it been a ruse from the beginning?
Or is it just a tail that he's been spinning

(Saturn)
No need to stand alone you aren't on your own
I will never let him have the Master Emerald

(Mega Drive)
Robotnik you've uttered your last lie
Now I'm sure it's you who needs to die!

(Master System)
Saw through my deception no matter the reception
His emerald collection will be in my possession
They call it a crime but it's the end of the line
In just a matter of time you'll see that Mobius will be mine!

(MS&MD)
Fields were burning in our homes
But now we can stop this chaos
Not going to fight this on our own

Fields were burning in our homes
But now we can stop this chaos
Not going to fight this on our own
Track Name: The Last Stand of Dr. Ivo Robotnik
(Verse)
Welcome to my Death Egg Zone
The humble deathtrap I call home
Up in the sky...It's time to die

"Super Sonic", oh well done
I'll make your death a super one
You've ended up on the wrong side of me the great Dr. Robotnik

(Chorus)
So here's the point you must have missed
It always had to come to this

The time is nigh for you to bow down to your lord Ivo robotnik

Save the planet from my reign?
Your worthless little rodent brain

Can't comprehend
This is. the. end

(Verse)
Through Emerald Hills and Lava Reefs
My plans have ended in defeat
You've stopped me for the last time
Soon my great plan will be set in motion

So marvel at my great machine
The last sight you'll have ever seen
And when I'm done I'll mount your head
Outside the gates of Robotropolis

(Chorus)
So here's the point you must have missed:
It always had to come to this

The time is nigh for you to bow down to your lord Ivo robotnik

Save the planet from my reign?
Your worthless little rodent brain

Can't comprehend
This is. the. end
Track Name: For Family Slain
Golden Axe
ATTACK!

(Verse)
Three mighty heroes fighting through the grey
Though countless minions try and block their way

Dwarf, elf and human

Conquering foes to win Death Adder's throne
Sword, axe and magic cutting to the bone

Dwarf, elf and human

(Chorus)
Golden Axe (Golden Axe, whoa-oh)
For family slain

Golden Axe (Golden Axe, whoa-oh)
Not in vain

(Verse)
You hide in jungles cross the ocean teal
It matters not you shall not stay our steel

Dwarf, elf and human

So join the three unto this final fray
Their task - to fight and die this day

Dwarf, elf and human

(Chorus)
Golden Axe (Golden Axe, whoa-oh)
For family slain

Golden Axe (Golden Axe, whoa-oh)
Not in vain
Track Name: Afterburners Go!
(Master System)
Go into the danger zone
If we fail there is no going home
War; what we've waited for
In the air we will settle the score (they reign but not)

(Mega Drive)
Anymore, here we stand we will never back down
Engines will burn at the speed of sound

(AFTERBURNERS GO!)

(Both)
Bullets rip like lightning
Right across the navy sky

Bogeys on our tail but it is not our time
We are the ones with the will to survive
When we push into overdrive

(Mega Drive)
Fight, got 'em in our sights
Target locked firing into the night
But wait the air is too serene
There are more on the radar screen

(Master System)
Now we've been hit and our engine's are down
Brace for impact heading for the ground

(AFTERBURNERS GO!)

(Both)
G-Force pressing down
We're spinning out of control
But we trust in our instincts
Burned into our very souls
We are the ones will the will to survive
When we push into overdrive

(Master System)
Thought we were done did you think that we were fools
Don't you know that in the sky is where the Tomcat rules

(Mega Drive)
Now on your tail a surprise attack
Pull the trigger there's no turning back

(Both)
Bullets rip like lightning
Right across the navy sky

Bogeys on our tail but it is not our time
We are the ones with the will to survive
When we push into overdrive

Bullets ripped like lightning
Right across the navy sky

Death screamed in our face
But it was not our time to die
We knew we were born to survive
When we pushed into overdrive
Track Name: Anthem of Ages
(Spoken)
Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to the Fantasy Zone
Please rise for the singing of the Anthem of Ages
Get Ready

(SATURN)
At the end of World War II
New machines forged in blue

Brand new wave
The craze of the age
Fresh ablaze

Serving Games with such great names
Masters of the System

Sharpened blades
In the arcades
Fun in spades

Time
It passes by
Find the track and hit rewind

(Before we’re)
Lost
(We’ll) Kill the boss
Escape our fate; we’re doing great

And then In 1983
A Hero Born Under “SG”
The world was split that day
N-E-S versus S-E-G-A

But the Famicom was too brute
He took down our hero blue
A thousand blows again
And again til' the end

Time
It passes by
Find the track and hit rewind

(Before we’re)
Lost
(We’ll) Kill the boss
Escape our fate; we’re doing great

THE BATTLE BEGINS
WE PAY FOR OUR SINS
THOUGH SUPER WE’RE NOT
WE’VE COME TO END YOUR PLOT

A VICIOUS NEW SCHEME
YOUR MIND CONTROL MACHINE
OPPRESSORS WILL PAY
WE’LL MEGA DRIVE THEM AWAY

JOIN US IN HANDS
WE’LL FIND NEW LANDS
THIS ISN’T A GAME
SO GEAR UP FOR THE PAIN

In 1995 we fought to stay alive
Dreams at Night
Virtual Fights
In our sights

Peace could reign at last
But our fates in time were cast

The damage was done
War had begun
We had to run

(We will see it through)
Track Name: The Cool Spot
(spoken)
Have you heard of this new place?
It's called The Cool Spot

(spoken)
And as you dance you feel the pure, raw energy of the club
The lights, the bodies, the sounds
It's as if you were always meant to be here

You notice a figure standing across the room
Something about them just compels you
You lock eyes and that's when you realize that nothing
Will ever be the same again
Track Name: Starlight Tonight
(Saturn)
Star shining bright
There's a gleam in your eyes tonight
In this light; think we might
Have our stars aligned just right on this night

Who would have thought
We'd find peace in this place where we
Fought every plot
But my heart is locked up in some strange robot

(Gotta go gotta go now)
(Gotta move gotta move on)
(Gotta run gotta run now)
(Gotta win gotta win now)
(IT'S THE STAR LIGHT TUNE)

And here we stand
Lovers in a neon land holding hands
But our plans have demands
That we don't understand (oh man)

You're gone now too
The only love I ever knew yeah it's true
But I'll prove that I'll make my way through to you

(Gotta go gotta go now)
(Gotta move gotta move on)
(Gotta run gotta run now)
(Gotta win gotta win now)
(IT'S THE STAR LIGHT TUNE)
Track Name: The Streets of Rage
(spoken)
This city was once a happy, peaceful place
Until one day, a powerful secret criminal organization took over
This vicious syndicate soon had control of the government
and even the police force.

The city has become a center of violence where no one is safe.
Amid this turmoil, group of young police officers
Has sworn to clean up the city.
Among them are Adam Hunter, Axel Stone, and Blaze Fielding.
They are willing to risk anything...even their lives...on the...
Streets of Rage

One year after the battle
The city that had been plagued with crime
and violence was safe and peaceful

However, evil has once again cast its shadow over the city

Mr.X, the Syndicate crime boss believed destroyed by the
Three young vigilantes has come back to life stronger than ever

Thirsty for revenge, he kidnaps Adam in an
Attempt to lure Axel and Blaze into a trap.

Axel and Blaze set out to help their faithful companion
Joined by Alex's friend Max and Adam's kid brother, Skate.

Four young friends, rage burning inside them
Make a stand for friendship and peace
