Track Name: Arrival on Crateria
I am Samus Aran, the Bounty Hunter. Let me tell you a story. The story starts when I was on my way back to planet Zebes. My mission. To end the space pirate threat once and for all. My arrival on Zebes awoke memories of my past. I remembered the invation on my home planet K2L. I remembered my youth and my training with the Chozo people.
I remembered my years of service in the galactic federation army. I remembered defeating and destroying Mother Brain. And I remembered how I found the last Metroid Larva on SR388 after I destroyed the Metroid Queen. But no matter how hard I tried I couldn't look past the fact that all these events had led me up to this point. I was back on planed Zebes and it was too late for me to turn back. I had to come full circle and face that witch started it all. I'm Samus Aran, and this is my story.
Track Name: It's Overgrown
it's overgrown
it's growing throught the stone and
I'm all alone
I'm all alone and I feel

I feel like running
geen shadows linger by my feet
I feel like screaming
but I'm alone and I have to move on

It's overgrown
but my will is hard as stone and
though I'm alone
I'll make it back to my home

I feel like running
red critters flying by my head
I feel like screaming
but I'm alone

it's overgrown
It's growing throught the stone and
I'm all alone
I'm all alone and I feel

I feel like running
geen shadows linger by my feet
I feel like screaming
but I'm alone and I have to move on
Track Name: Walking on Red Soil
you're falling down in red and
thoughts keep flying though your head
is this for real is this a dream
are you alive or are you dead

and no matter how hard you try
you got this feeling deep inside
will you survive when you arrive
with obstacles sky high

it's not getting any better
but at least you got your moves
until you lose or you choose to
push a litte harder

but you can't concider to fly
unless you tell yourself a lie
that no matter how slim a chance
you have to dance I'll tell you why couse you're

walking on red soil, dead soil with toil
falling free and climbing flying
but you got your head spoiled
walking on red soil, dead soil with toil
falling free and climbing flying
but you got your head spoiled

you're thinking of the prime time
when you hit your high time
keep it up real time
now slippi'n like on lime slime

stuck here now for all time
deep inside a hole
it's like inside colemine
eating at your soul

failing only adds to the growing frustration
wish you were on top of the whole situation
but you really can't succeed
unless you cut yourself and bleed
and no matter how slim a chance
you have to pump up your speed when you're

walking on red soil, dead soil with toil
falling free and climbing flying
but you got your head spoiled
walking on red soil, dead soil with toil
falling free and climbing flying
but you got your head spoiled
Track Name: Red Hot Lava
As I left the decaying body of the spore creature and made it down towards Norfair, a thought struck my mind. What if the Metroid larva I collected on SR388 was looking for me. What if it felt like I deserted it on that research station. I don't know if the Metroid larva had awoken my maternal instincts, but I suddenly stopped and realized the cheer absurdity of the though. I was raised by the Chozo and taught that Metroids were an abomination, a perversion of their lust for power and knowledge. They also told me that their fatal mistake of creating such an abomination had to be corrected. The heat of the lava and the frustration of not having immediate access to all areas of Norfair interupted my thoughts. It was clear to me that I had to return to Norfair before this mission was over, but in order for me to do so I had to upgrade my power suit to be able to resist the heat of the volcanic areas. In my heart I knew this journey was far from over.
Track Name: The Sea Inside Me
a prisoner inside my flesh and bones
I want to shed the frail skin
to unravel all of me
I'm going outside
to hide from the sea inside

I will become fearless
and watch this darkness
surround me

It will not overtake me
I will watch it die
I will not drown
Track Name: Intergalactic Warrior
I don't know what's ahead of me
but I don't care to look back anymore
what will become of this task I keep asking myself
I guess I'll have to wait and see

I have to strive forward
there's no turning back
intergalactic Warrior
that it my name

I don't know what's ahead of me
but I've made it this far I'm not turning back
some things are simply meant to be
I'm gonna make it
gonna make it or fade away

I have to strive forward
there's no turning back
to hunt evil destroyer
that it my game
Track Name: Derelict Spaceship
I found myself wandering a dark corridor of a derelict spaceship. I wondered what its purpose was and where is originated from.
The spaceship seemed old. very old, but that also struck me as odd since I had been here before and I had never seen advanced construction of any kind. At least not a huge derelict spaceship sticking out of the sea. Feint sparks of electricity fell from the ceiling to the floor in the corridor were I stood. It provided a small source of light in the dark, but not to any great extent. Somehow I felt like was being watched, but I couldn't tell if my premonitions were correct. The silence and absense of life started to freak me out. I felt a chill down my spine, right through the thick layers of my power suit. I usually feel calm in the dark, but there was nothing calm about me in that dark forsaken place. I begun to focus my thought on a single goal, to push away the growing fear tht I felt. I needed to restore the ship's main power source and turn the lights back on.
Track Name: Deep Beneath Maridia
deep beneath Maridia
tumbling, trembling avoiding the sand
aand, drawing me in, pulling me closer and closer
a maze of pipes, pipes with metal stripes reflecting
I reflect on past troubbles floating with boubbles
they burst at the touch of the surface above

lost in cold, freezing water pushing ever closer
teasing space high above surface level
a cavernous place in which I drain my outer surface
the clinging green hanging, dangling
high walls looking down, dwarving my physical existence

agresive eyes moving in the dark, observing me from afar
maliciously following my metalic contour
moving closer and closer in silence
narrowing the distance on higher ground
focusing, planning, climbing and charging

washed over by plasma whining through the air
fear and adrenaline surging, thoughts converging
I act with speed and vanquish the pirate breed
but in the act I lost my grip and plunged once more beneath
deep, deep beneath Maridia
tumbling, trembling avoiding the sand
Track Name: Ancient Ruins of Norfair
Norofairi uadu neashe haka ni beosha wukrishe
Norfair the place where truth lies hidden

Norofairi haka ni beosha wukrishe
Norfair where truth lies hidden

haka ni beosha wukrishe
where truth lies hidden
Track Name: Childhood's Fear
you’ll never leave here
it’s not in your hands
let’s start a fight now
see you ain’t got a chance

deep in space
fall from grace

I will fight you and you will fall
childhood’s fear drawing near

come on beastie
let’s dance

I will fight you will fall
I will fight you will fall
childhood’s fear growing near

my childhood’s fear is drawing near
adrenaline pumping, heart thumping
it all boils down to one thing
have you got what it takes to stop me

I’m not the one to give up that easily
you made me an orphan, but i promise you
before all this is over you’ll pay for my ruined childhood

Now die!
Track Name: Mystic Statues
After I had risen above my childhood fears and defeted Ridley I returned to the center of Crateria. There, deep inside a water filled cave I found a strange set of statues. It was clear to me that the statues depicted Kraid, Phantoon, Draygon, and Ridley. All these creatures I had fought against and destroyed. Each statue had bright orbs where the eyes should be. All of a sudden the cave began to shake. Heavy rocks fell down from the cave ceiling and hit the water below. The orbs started to glow. One after another the orbs cracked and small lights flew out from inside each orb. It all seemed so magestic, but in a frightenig and foreboding way. When the orbs cracked and all lights had all but disappeared, the statue began to move, revealing a passageway hidden underneath. I knew I was close to finding answers to all my questions, but at the same time I knew, those answeres would not make any difference at this point. I knew that Ridley was just another pawn. I had to finish what I started and reveal the master mind behind the space pirate activity on Zebes.
Track Name: Mother Brain
I fell to the ground, my legs barely able to support the weight of the power suit anymore. The revived Mother Brain charged her plasma for a killing blow. Suddenly the Metroid larva who had evolved into a super metroid arrived seemingly out of nowhere and attacked Mother Brain sucking her life energy. In the corner of my eye I saw how Mother Brain turned into a pale and lifeless version of her former self. I was amazed by the power of the Metroid. Only moments later the Metroid latched on to my power suit and filled me with Mother Brain's energy. It felt like nothing I've never felt before or since. Like raw power surging through the very core of my being, but in the blink of an eye the revived Mother Brain blew the last Metroid to pieces. Small, glowing Metroid particles rained down. In anger I charged my cannon and fired a shot sraight at Mother Brain. Mother Brain was no more.
Track Name: The Escape
Loud sirens, blast walls closing. When my shot pierced Mother Brain the same blast shattered vital parts of the planet's artificial core. I heard in horror how a computerized voice stated: Warning! three minutes to selfdestruction. Blast doors closed quickly behind me as I past them, a few Zebesians tried to stop me, but they were leaderless and probably more confused then I was at the time. The computerized voice reminded me once again to hurry: Warning! 1 minute to selfdestruction. My mind raced. All the events of my life flashed before my eyes until I arrived at one single thought. I have to survive. Disoriented by the chaos I lost all sense of time and place. Without really knowing how it happened I found myself in my ship well on my way to exit the atmosphere of Zebes. My mind was in fragments. Images of my recent past replayed in my mind, it all seemed so unreal. Then it happened. I still remember the ear deafening sound of planet Zebes exploding behind my ship and how I almost got caught in the blast radius. To this day I don't quite know how I survived, but I did. Planet Zebes, Mother Brain, the last Metroid and my childhood fear Ridley. All gone, and now, it's all part of a past I can't seem to forget. I'm Samus Aran, and this is my story.
Track Name: In the Blink of an Eye
I can't believe
all the things that I've been through
it seems so unreal to me
but in the blink of an eye it all went down

A thought struck my mind
what if I could wind back time
it seems so unreal to me
but in the blink of an eye it all went down

how could I have known
and though I'm glad I'm going home
a feeling unknown
of being alone

I can't conceive
all the things that happened only moments ago
It seems so unreal to me
but in the blink of an eye it all went down

it gave me life again
but it lost it's own at the prize of mine
it seems so surreal to me
but in the blink of an eye it all went down

how could I have known
and though I'm glad I'm going home
a feeling unknown
of being alone
