Time: 4:14
Style: Hard Rock
English Lyrics: Adam Pulver
On paper, this song looks very difficult to pull off, because of the frequent use of "Matrix Evolution" in English in the chorus. As I've said many times before (and was the first thing Tiffany Grant said when I told her about this operation), going from Engrish to English is the hardest part. Especially during a critical part of the song, as it is here. But I worked around it in the rest of the chorus and it turned out very well. Also note the very fun rhyming in the verses (often in the middle of words) and the not-so-subtle Evangelion reference.

One Vision

Heroes are united when two becomes one.
Merge together- matrix evolution.
Proving that our forces will not be outdone.
Undertake! And you will understand.

Defining two beating hearts- they can change and arrange their dynamic hue.
Is there any way to start? In a moment, their tone is something new.

Be ready to stand up tall. Can you trust in a justice of your design?
Be ready to give it all. You're devoured by powers in your mind.

The virtues you may hold- you may still be strong and bold.
But your story won't be told until you fight, starting today.

Heroes are united when two becomes one.
Merge together- matrix evolution.
Give it all you have 'til your battle is won.
For now! For then! For later!
Blending these two bodies of pure devotion.
Merge together- matrix evolution.
Proving that our forces will not be outdone.
Undertake! And you will understand.

Two spirits are synchonized when they're beating, repeating in harmony.
One being of greater size. It's a grand and demanding sight to see.

It's not for a simple fight; you don't need to achieve it for victory.
It helps us to see the light. Understand your companion's right to be.

Give 400 percent, in a new embodiment.
When a miracle is sent it's sent by you, starting today.

Heroes will be starting the revolution.
Bringing forth a matrix evolution.
Hoisting the whole world on the shoulders of one.
Arrive! Arise! Awaken!
Searching through the ages for one solution.
Realized power- evolution.
If your hearts are beating in pure unison.
Then unite! You never will divide.

Facing every fear you can possibly think.
Facing towards a future that lies on the brink.
Facing towards each other- your hearts are in-sync.
Arrive! Arise! Awaken!
Heroes will be starting the revolution.
Bringing forth a matrix evolution.
Hoisting the whole world on the shoulders of one.
Then protect! And you will persevere.

Heroes are united when two becomes one.
Merge together- matrix evolution.
Give it all you have 'til your battle is won.
For now! For then! For later!
Blending these two bodies of pure devotion.
Merge together- matrix evolution.
Proving that our forces will not be outdone.
Undertake! And you will understand.
