Lyrics

A shadow of myself, just who am I?
Scan horizons
A tragic mystery
You could've left me here, sealed inside the pod
No one would ever know
The Chaos Control
My true identity
The power that is me
We all danced in fire
Trapped in this machine
Don't know how long we've waited
As the Eggman's watching
We all danced in fire
Looking through a screen
Don't know how long we've waited
As the Eggman watches
With Rouge in the fight - electric vibes
Change surroundings
A jewel in history
A treasure disappears - as she goes
Miss her as we look away - and no one knows
This power is a key
This power changes me
We all danced in fire
Trapped in this machine
Don't know how long we've waited
As the Eggman's watching
We all danced in fire
Looking through the screen
Don't know how long we've waited
As the Eggman watches
Chaos Control
Chaos
Chaos
Chaos
Chaos
Chaos Control
Chaos Control
Chaos
Chaos
Chaos
Chaos
Chaos Control
E-123
You didn't know - now I'm going to show you
The power that is me
You tried to take me down - stop the show
Seems you've never tasted fear - or loss of control
The power lives in me
The power that is me
We all danced in fire
Trapped in this machine
Don't know how long we've waited
As the Eggman's watching
We all danced in fire
Looking through the screen
Don't know how long we've waited
As the Eggman watches
(Ending electric noises)
