Ominous” is the theme of Ominous from the game Sonic Overload, as well as a counter to Sid the Hero's theme. It was composed by

This song has a mix of both soft rock, R&B, and ballad with a soft, dark, depressed melody and is written from Ominous's perspective. It tells you about his self-loathing and modest but usually serious and vigilant personality, dark backstory, and his hatred on the evil of everyone in the omniverse and beyond, as well as him thinking that he's the one who can fix it.

Background

This song was made to be a counter to Sid the Hero's theme in order to show them as polar opposites in terms of worldviews. It's used as a remix to his first and second boss fights in the game. A trans-siberian orchestra remix of the song is used during the first half of the final battle.

Lyrics

Verse 1

You don't know who I am
A dark, somber mistake (mistake)
A demon within
I'm filled with sins...
In every choice I make (every choice I make)
But if I could spread my power...
And rectify everything (everything)
Then, maybe then
I could begin...
To change it all within (within)

Chorus 1

Far beyond the scale of life itself
I can see it all within
Conflict and pain
I must explain...
That we all are filled with sins
It has to stop, it's time to change
Then we can all be free
I'll take my chance
With no consequence
Still, why does this feel so Ominous?

Verse 2

Deep within my background
Lies a shadow of who I was (who I was)
Repressed memories
Only I can see...
Cruel tyranny (tyranny)
Helping out the big bads
A mistake I cannot hide (I cannot hide)
Caught by the mighty
And now you see...
The darkness I have inside (I have inside)

Chorus 2

Far beyond the scale of life itself
I can see it all within
Conflict and pain
I must explain...
That we all are filled with sins
It has to stop, it's time to change
Then we can all be free
I'll take my chance
With no consequence
Still, why does this feel so Ominous?

Bridge

I don't care how or when
This isn't the time for laughs
I've got to save the day
No matter what it takes
To change everything

Chorus 3

Far beyond the scale of life itself
I can see it all within
Conflict and pain
I must explain...
That we all are filled with sins
It has to stop, it's time to change
Then we can all be free
I'll take my chance
With no consequence
Still, why does this feel so Ominous?
