The theme for Ender’s Game. It has to be epic yet innocent: lonely, angry, somber and determined yet hopeful.

I’ve been waiting for this movie for 20 years, as both a musician and Orson Scott Card fan.

I tried to strike a balance between a huge, epic anthemic rock song (Linkin Park, Nine Inch Nails, Paramore) and a quiet, emotional downtempo track (Massive Attack, Portishead, Thievery Corporation). Every line of lyrics speaks directly to Ender’s story.

Please note: This is not the official theme to Ender’s Game

LYRICS

Turn me into your best violence machine
Without concern for how it’s sure to damage me
Your eyes wide as the third child learns to balance love and fear
Learn to fly towards an endless tide wishing Valentine were here

I don’t know who I’m supposed to be
But I’m not allowed to fail
If our future relies on me
Then I’m not allowed to fail
I don’t know who I’m supposed to be
But I’m not allowed to fail
If our future relies on me
Then I can’t afford to fail

Get more from hatred then I do from empathy
No lasting friendship as you choose my enemies
You stand by all the killing while a lack of mercy earns the crown
Somehow I learn to love them while I put them in the ground

No one else can help me
I’ll learn to trust myself
You think you can crush me?
I’ll hold my ground
What will it take to break me?
I don’t even know myself
But I know the enemy’s gate is down
