A recurring theme with me seems to be manipulating video game audio to form coherent sections of narrative that strongly relate to the story. This specific song does the same thing I did with "Extinction" except much more detailed..

The audio in this (as well as the clips in the songs preceding it) are taken from BioShock: Infinite, a personal favorite game of mine. The story's relationship between its two protagonists so strongly mirrors the one between Vincent and ASI I could not pass it up.

There is even a line I wrote prior to playing the game, "What I've done cannot be undone" and almost those exact words were used in the audio I ripped from the game, too perfect to pass up!


My powers shrivel as my regrets blossom
By the time I realized how far I had gone
It was too late to stop it
But there is still one last chance at redemption
For both of us...
What I have done, cannot be undone
I cannot stop what I have put in motion
But perhaps, I can keep it from ever starting
He was my first hope, and now he is my last

All of this has to end
Will I be strong enough to see all the doors
And open whichever I choose
And if I bring him here
Who Is to say he would be any match
for the monsters I have created?
But in the end he is the one
Who will have to pay down all of our accounts
won't he?

Where does his guilt start...and mine end?
