Santa Monica’s New Theme Song

Well, it’s probably not their theme song, but for some us, it will probably feel very fitting.

The lyrics are easy to understand. I like that over other songs which I can’t comprehend, especially rap.

The animated movie video is based off of scenes from Vampire Hunter D. The guy that rides a black horse and wears a dark hat is one bounty hunter, and the other characters are either vampires or other bounty hunters. They were both given a contract or bounty to chase down a human girl, seen in the white dress, that was kidnapped by her vampire admirer, the guy at the end dueling the longsword user.

Well, this pretty ends up as a romantic tragedy, but it was pretty touching when I watched it years ago.

Now take the lyrics and apply it to Santa Monica, with the assumption that there are warriors or killers out there a lot scarier than the Santa Rog killer. Except that just as easily as the Santa Rog killer hunted down humans that were unarmed, so the same is true higher up in the food chain when it comes to greater predators that seek out prey in the form of Santa Rog killers.

This AMV probably makes more sense if you watched the 300 movie.

Lyrics

Dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
And quietly bear this pain with pride,
For heaven shall remember the silent and the brave.
And promise me, they will never see
The fear within our eyes. (my eyes are closed)
For we will give strength to those who still remain.

So bury fear, while fate draws near
And hide the signs of pain.
With noble acts
The bravest souls endure,
The heart’s remains.

Discard regret,
That in this debt
A better world is made
And children of a newer day might remember
And avoid our fate.

I waited all day in the pouring rain,
But nobody came,
No nobody came.

(Prepare for battle)

And in the fury of this darkest hour
We will be your light
You’ve asked me for my sacrifice
And I am Winter born
Without denying, a faith is come
That I have never known
I hear the angels call my name
And I am Winter born

Hold your head up high
For there is no greater love
Think of the faces of the people you defend
And promise me, they will never see
The tears within our eyes (My eyes are closed)
Although we are men with mortal sins,
Angels never cry

So bury fear for fate draws near
And hide the signs of pain
With noble acts, the bravest souls
Endure the heart’s remains

Discard regret,
That in this debt
A better world is made
That children of a newer day might remember, and avoid our fate.

(Prepare for battle)

And in the fury of this darkest hour
We will be your light
You’ve asked me for my sacrifice
And I am Winter born
Without denying, a faith in God
That I have never known
I hear the angels call my name
And I am Winter born

And in the fury of this darkest hour
I will be your light
A lifetime for this destiny
For I am winter born
And in this moment…
I will not run, it is my place to stand
We few shall carry hope
Within our bloodied hands

And in our Dying
We’re more alive- than we have ever been
I’ve lived for these few seconds
For I am Winter born

And in the fury of this darkest hour
We will be the light
You’ve asked me for my sacrifice
And I am Winter born
Without denying, a faith in man
That I have never known
I hear the angels call my name
And I am Winter born

Within this moment
I am for you,
Though better men have failed
I will give my life for love
For I am Winter born
