Sora is dead: Hidden Kingdom Hearts II lyrics

Some of you may be too young to remember the Beatles myth that secret messages about Paul being dead were found in several Beatles tunes when they were played backwards and that Paul was really dead and replaced by a look-a-like. Well all of that turned out to be a hoax and Paul is quite alive. But apparently you can find hidden messages in the Kingdom Heart II opening song, “Sanctuary” when you play the cinematic scene backwards.

Lyrics include “I need more affection than you know”, “I need true emotions” and “He was Ansem”. Check out the video and see how most of the lyrics actually fit with the scene going on in the opening, for example the lyrics, “I will not destroy them” are heard when Sora is running backwards down the stairs and the heartless are being reanimated by Sora’s Keyblade.
