"Heavens Divide" is the vocal theme for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. The music was written by Akihiro Honda with words by Nobuko Toda and the vocals were performed by Donna Burke. It was featured prominently in the 2009 Tokyo Game Show trailer for the game. The maxi single was released on April 7, 2010 in Japan. The main motif used in the song is heard as Snake talks to an injured Amanda Valenciano Libre and again as he consoles captured Chico. It first plays with the vocals when Snake has to take down a Hind D before attempting to get into the Control Tower near the end of the game to stop Hot Coldman's plan, again when Amanda leads the Sandinistas in chanting "Vic Boss" after saving him and finally it plays over the credits for both endings.

It was also a DLC Walkman song. In addition, it also was used as two VOCALOID DLC, one using its A Verse, and the other composed of the Chorus.

An instrumental version of Heaven's Divide is included as part of the Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker Medley in the Metal Gear 25th Anniversary Music Collection (from 6:29). This version is also included as a song that can be listened to in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and can be collected as a cassette tape in Episode 30 of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Collecting the tape during that mission will complete the related mission objective.

Lyrics

Petals of white
Cover fields flowing in grieving tears
And all the hearts once new, old and shattered now
Love can kill, love will die
Give me wings to fly
Fleeing this world so cold
I just wonder why

Cold as the dark
Now my words, are frosted with every breath
Still the hate burns wild, growing inside this heart
When the wind changes course, when the stars align
I will reach out to you and leave this all behind
When heavens divide

When heavens divide
I will see the choices within my hands
How can we ever protect and fight with our tiny souls
Let me shine like the sun through the doubts and fear
Do you feel the storm approach as the end draws near

When heavens divide
Time will come to softly lay me down
Then I can see her face that I long to see
And for you, only you I would give anything
Leaving a trace for love to find a way

When heavens divide

I will dive into the fire
Spilling the blood of my desire
The very last time
My name scorched into the sky

When heavens divide
I will see the choices within my hands
How can we ever protect and fight with our tiny souls
Let me shine like the sun through the doubts and fear
Do you feel the storm approach as the end draws near

When heavens divide
Time will come to softly lay me down
Then I can see her face that I long to see
And for you, only you I would give anything
Leaving a trace for love to find a way

When heavens divide

And for you, only you I would give anything
Leaving a trace for love to find a way

When heavens divide
