Best video game music with lyrics?

#1
This hasn't been asked in a while so I thought it could result a fun thread.
Anyway, there really aren't too many amazing vocal songs in video games that are composed specifically for the game. Which are your favorites?

I'll start with:

Alan Wake - The Poet and the Muse

Such a great and beautiful track. Old Gods of Asgard is Poets of the Fall in disguise for those who don't know.

We did this thread a couple of months ago, but any song with Mary Elizabeth McGlynn from Silent Hill. Lovely voice.

Also, dug Late Goodbye from Max Payne 2... and Snaaaaaaaaaaaake Eater

That game has one of the best soundtracks.

I just wanted to thank Salsa for making me think of No More Heroes and going on to look up all of Desperate Struggle's soundtrack on YouTube. This shit is the bomb.

I'll post my choices with brief samples of the lyrics provided.

God Hand - Ending Credits song

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAga2AjfZlg

"Dragon kick your ass into the milky way (milky way!)
Don't act like you don't like the ball buster (ball buster!)
My Arm, my arm, my arm, my arm, my arm, my arm
I'll summon up the power of the God Hand!"


No More Heroes - The Virgin Child Makes A Wish Without Feeling Anything

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y35Q7xXmTUQ

"Despair, the end of the world
I hear the rising phoenix in my dreams
And the virgin child made her wish upon a star
That night her mother talks no more"

Metal Gear Solid: Portable-OPs - Calling to the Night

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBvOK2ebPBo&feature=related

"In the sun we see fighting over lines
All our dreams and wishes we send home for safe keeping
Fighting for what’s right
Calling to the night"


Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

Hell Frozen Rain - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teUYh0pT6MM

"In your mind's eye lives a memory
Hard to find, blinded by sorrow
And her cold voice sings a melody
Hear her sing, hell frozen rain falls down"

Always On My Mind - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwjaab1ChbA&feature=related

"Maybe I didn’t love you quite as often as I could have,
And maybe I didn’t treat you quite as good as I should have.
If I made you feel second best, I’m so sorry I was blind.
You were always on my mind."

Acceptance - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkajjogjGu0&feature=related

"Night falls—strange colored walls: My eyes deceive what is wrong with me.
Deep in the night you think everything’s right.
Tell it to yourself—say it’s just a nightmare.
Something is telling you nothing can change where you are again."

When You're Gone - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wh5JHzlLthg&feature=related

"Objects in my room—they might be telling me something soon.
Still you ask me how I feel. I feel lost—that’s how I feel.
I know there’s something I’ve forgotten—like a time, a place, a shattered memory.
For me, it’s more than I can seem to handle: It’s the pain my mind is writing on the wall."
