Run Boy Run

If there is one song which puts the stories of ICO, Shadow of the Colossus, and The Last Guardian into words, this is it. “Run Boy Run” by Woodkid from The Golden Age soundtrack. GMV video made by YouTube user Zillageist (prev. named Zillpyre). Song lyrics sourced from AZLyrics.

Run boy run! This world is not made for you
Run boy run! They’re trying to catch you
Run boy run! Running is a victory
Run boy run! Beauty lays behind the hills

Run boy run! The sun will be guiding you
Run boy run! They’re dying to stop you
Run boy run! This race is a prophecy
Run boy run! Break out from society

Tomorrow is another day
And you won’t have to hide away
You’ll be a man, boy!
But for now it’s time to run, it’s time to run!

Run boy run! This ride is a journey too
Run boy run! The secret inside of you
Run boy run! This race is a prophecy
Run boy run! And disappear in the trees

Tomorrow is another day
And you won’t have to hide away
You’ll be a man, boy!
But for now it’s time to run, it’s time to run!

Tomorrow is another day
And when the night fades away
You’ll be a man, boy!
But for now it’s time to run, it’s time to run!

Here is a second GMV, this one showcasing PS2 Shadow and ICO. GMV video made by YouTube user Tea.
