Relation with the Bourne seriesEdit

"Extreme Ways" is a song by American electronica musician Moby. Released on August 19, 2002, it was the second single from his studio album 18. It is also included on disc one of the American release of Go -- The Very Best of Moby.

The track is notably used at the conclusion of all three Bourne films; a new version of the song was recorded for use on the closing credits of the third, The Bourne Ultimatum, and released on the film's soundtrack. "Extreme Ways (Bourne's Ultimatum)" was also released as a one-track CD single on September 17, 2007. It samples the drum break from Melvin Bliss's "Synthetic Substitution", one of the most popularly sampled drum breaks in the history of music. It also samples the strings from the beginning of Hugo Winterhalter's cover of "Everybody's Talkin'".

LyricsEdit

Extreme ways are back again
Extreme places I didn't know
I broke everything new again
Everything that I'd owned
I threw it out the windows, came along
Extreme ways I know move apart
The colors of my sea
Perfect color me


Extreme ways that help me
That help me out late at night
Extreme places I had gone
But never seen any light
Dirty basements, dirty noise
Dirty places coming through
Extreme worlds alone
Did you ever like it then


I would stand in line for this
There's always room in life for this


Oh baby, oh baby
Then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby
Then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby
Then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby
Like it always does, always does


Extreme songs that told me
They helped me down every night
I didn't have much to say
I didn't get above the light
I closed my eyes and closed myself
And closed my world and never opened
Up to anything
That could get me along


I had to close down everything
I had to close down my mind
Too many things to cover me
Too much can make me blind
I've seen so much in so many places
So many heartaches, so many faces
So many dirty things
You couldn't even believe


I would stand in line for this
It's always good in life for this


Oh baby, oh baby
Then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby
Then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby
Then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby
Like it always does, always does
