"Dark Skies" is the action theme of Sukhumi, capital Abkhazia from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

The lyrics describe a reflection of critical changes in society, such as corruption, bribery, manipulation and power acquisition for war. The song starts at second stage, after Raiden fails in his mission to protect N'mani.

The demo version of this song is titled "Cut You Down To Size", and changed completely like Locked & Loaded.


A brave new world rising

I … I can’t believe my eyes
We’ve fallen down
We’re blinded by dark skies

It’s in the way we all exploit the weak
The justice that we seek
Accept the truth to be free

Times have changed
Don’t let fate remain the same
Life … so fleeting

The future’s ours to take when we doubt everything
No … no turning back … now!
Now find … find your own path
But don’t …. don’t give in to wrath

[Official lyrics from Platinum Games - Do not modify]
