Inner Universe by Origa

This is the source for the opening theme from Ghost in the Shell: Stand-Alone Complex, and is distinctly house in its stylings. I like it because the title sequence is filled with Major Kusanagi's dreams; you see what a girl, whose body was lost to her into adulthood until there was nothing human about her but her spinal column and brain, sees as she sleeps. The dreams of a cyborg. A girl who never had the time to change into woman; it was just there one day. The dreams of something not human, not machine; transhuman.

Sentient tanks dropping their metacamo and firing at assailants. A clutching too-strong little girl's hand shattering a favorite doll. A plunge into a soaring night sky. Backup from colleagues as you descend, firing CPU-disrupting charges, into a nest of cheaply-shielded miscreants who clutch their skulls, spasm and fall.

Static, signal, prose and body. The ghost flexing in the shell.

Listen as the damned sing of heaven.

-- Lyrics --

Angely i demony kruzhili nado mnoj
Rassekali ternii i mlechnye puti
Ne znaet schast'ya ot togo,
Kto ego zova ponyat' ne smog...

Nalyubuites', nalyubuites'
Aeria Gloris, Aeria Gloris
Nalyubuites', nalyubuites'
Aeria Gloris, Aeria Gloris

I am Calling Calling now, Spirits rise and falling
Soboj ostat'sya dol'she...
Calling Calling, in the depth of longing
Soboj ostat'sya dol'she...

Nalyubuites', nalyubuites'
Aeria Gloris, Aeria Gloris

Stand alone... Where was life when it had a meaning...
Stand alone... Nothing's real anymore and...

...Beskonechnyj beg...
Poka zhiva ya mogu starat'sya na letu ne upast',
Ne razuchit'sya mechtat'...lyubit'...
...Beskonechnyj beg...

Calling Calling now, For the place of knowing
There's more that what can be linked
Calling Calling now, Never will I look away
For what life has left for me
Yearning Yearning, for what's left of loving

Soboj ostat'sya dol'she...
Calling Calling now, Spirits rise and falling
Soboj ostat'sya dol'she...
Calling Calling, in the depth of longing
Soboj ostat'sya dol'she...

Nalyubuites', nalyubuites'
Aeria Gloris, Aeria Gloris
Nalyubuites', nalyubuites'
Aeria Gloris, Aeria Gloris
