    In the episode in SAC when they have to find the girl who has been missing for 16 years, but still looks the same, what is the song playing in the backround when they are facing the soldiers?

    The words are by Tim Jensen, the music is by Yōko Kanno, and the song is sung by HIDE.

    I'm guessing you are talking about 2nd GIG's opening by Origa? The song's name is "Rise", and is an incredible song. The TV size version is the last song on OST+ while the full length version is on OST 2.

    The words are in English and Russian (not Japanese, as some people assume it is). The following is taken directly from The Yōko Kanno Database. It lists three sets of the lyrics; The first set includes both English and Russian (written in Cyrillic), the second set is written in all English characters, and the final set includes a translation of the Russian lyrics:

    ===================================================
    「Rise」
    Words by Tim Jensen / Origa. Music by Yōoko Kanno
    Transliterated and translated by roxfan


    I'm a soldier, значит я
    И ответчик и судья
    Я стою на двух концах огня
    Огибая виражи, обгоняя смерть и жизнь
    Я бегу сразиться с тенью лжи

    Сколько б нитей не плёл обман
    Покажет лик света истина

    *Save your tears
    for the day
    when our pain is far behind
    on your feet
    come with me
    we are soldiers stand or die

    Save your fears
    take your place
    save them for the judgement day
    fast and free
    follow me
    time to make the sacrifice
    we rise or fall

    I'm a soldier, born to stand
    in this waking hell I am
    witnessing more than I can compute

    pray myself we don't forget
    lies, betrayed and the oppressed
    please give me the strength to be the truth

    people facing the fire together
    if we don't, we'll lose all we have found

    *repeat

    За мечтою на край пропасти
    Лишь только так можно мир спасти

    Ты не плачь,
    Слёзы спрячь,
    Ведь настанет новый день
    Твой огонь
    Согревать
    Будет тысячи сердец
    А сейчас поднимись
    Спрячь подальше боль и страх
    Победит тот, кто прав
    Знай, что всё в твоих руках

    *repeat

    -----------------------------------

    I'm a soldier, znachit ya
    I otvetchik i sud'ya
    Ya stoyu na dvuh kontsah ognya
    Ogibaya virazhi, obgonyaya smert' i zhizn'
    Ya begu srazit'sya s ten'yu lzhi

    Skol'ko b nitej ne plyol obman
    Pokazhet lik sveta istina

    *Save your tears
    for the day
    when our pain is far behind
    on your feet
    come with me
    we are soldiers stand or die

    Save your fears
    take your place
    save them for the judgement day
    fast and free
    follow me
    time to make the sacrifice
    we rise or fall

    I'm a soldier, born to stand
    in this waking hell I am
    witnessing more than I can compute

    pray myself we don't forget
    lies, betrayed and the oppressed
    please give me the strength to be the truth

    people facing the fire together
    if we don't, we'll lose all we have found

    *repeat

    Za mechtoyu na kraj propasti
    Lish' tol'ko tak mozhno mir spasti

    Ty ne plach',
    Slyozy spryach',
    Ved' nastanet novyj den'
    Tvoj ogon'
    Sogrevat'
    Budet tysyachi serdets
    A sejchas podnimis'
    Spryach' podal'she bol' i strah
    Pobedit tot, kto prav
    Znaj, chto vsyo v tvoih rukah

    *repeat

    -----------------------------------

    I'm a soldier, and that means
    I'm both defendant and judge
    I am standing on the two ends of fire
    Bending over the steep turns, overtaking death and life
    I'm running to fight the shadow of the lies

    No matter how much threads deceit weaves
    The truth will show the face of light

    *Save your tears
    for the day
    when our pain is far behind
    on your feet
    come with me
    we are soldiers stand or die

    Save your fears
    take your place
    save them for the judgement day
    fast and free
    follow me
    time to make the sacrifice
    we rise or fall

    I'm a soldier, born to stand
    in this waking hell I am
    witnessing more than I can compute

    pray myself we don't forget
    lies, betrayed and the oppressed
    please give me the strength to be the truth

    people facing the fire together
    if we don't, we'll lose all we have found

    *repeat

    Chase the dream to the edge of the abyss
    This is the only way to save the world

    Don't you cry,
    Hide your tears
    Because there'll be a new day
    Your fire
    Will be heating
    Thousands of hearts
    Now, rise up
    Hide your pain and fear far off
    The one who is right will win
    Remember, everything is in your hands

    *repeat

    In case there was a misunderstanding, the opening song for 1st GIG is called "Inner Universe". It is also sung by Origa:

    (Editor's Note: I also added the Cyrillic, English translation, as well as a few other things. Thanks for adding the lyrics SaphireMoon!)

    =======================================
    「Inner Universe」
    vocal: Origa, words: Origa / Shanti Snyder, music: Yōko Kanno

    Ангелы и демоны кружили надо мной
    Разбивали тернии и звёздные пути
    Не знает счастья только тот‚
    Кто его зова понять не смог •••

    I am calling calling now, spirits rise and falling
    Собой остаться дольше •••
    Calling calling, in the depth of longing
    Собой остаться дольше •••

    Stand alone ••• Where was life when it had a meaning? •••

    Stand Alone ••• Nothing’s real anymore and •••

    ••• Бесконечный бег •••
    Пока жива я могу старатьсяна лету не упасть‚
    Не разучиться мечтать ••• любить •••
    ••• Бесконечный бег •••

    Calling calling, for the place of knowing
    There’s more than what can be linked
    Calling calling, never will I look away
    For what life has left for me
    Yearning yearning, for what’s left of loving

    Собой остаться дольше •••
    Calling calling now, spirits rise and falling
    Собой остаться дольше •••
    Calling calling, in the depth of longing
    Собой остаться дольше •••

    -----------------------------------

    Angely i demony kruzhili nado mnoj
    Razbivali ternii i zvyozdnye puti
    Ne znaet schast'ya tol'ko tot,
    Kto ego zova ponyat' ne smog •••

    I am Calling Calling now, Spirits rise and falling
    Soboj ostat'sya dol'she •••
    Calling Calling, in the depth of longing
    Soboj ostat'sya dol'she •••

    Stand alone ••• Where was life when it had a meaning •••
    Stand alone ••• Nothing's real anymore and •••

    ••• Beskonechnyj beg •••
    Poka zhiva ya mogu starat'sya na letu ne upast',
    Ne razuchit'sya mechtat' ••• lyubit' •••
    ••• Beskonechnyj beg •••

    Calling Calling, For the place of knowing
    There's more that what can be linked
    Calling Calling, Never will I look away
    For what life has left for me
    Yearning Yearning, for what's left of loving

    Soboj ostat'sya dol'she •••
    Calling Calling now, Spirits rise and falling
    Soboj ostat'sya dol'she •••
    Calling Calling, in the depth of longing
    Soboj ostat'sya dol'she •••

    -----------------------------------

    (From Anime Lyrics)

    Angels and Demons were circling above me
    Breaking the hardships and starry ways
    The only one who doesn't know happiness
    is the one who couldn't understand its call •••

    I am Calling Calling now, Spirits rise and falling
    To stay myself longer •••
    Calling Calling, in the depth of longing
    To stay myself longer •••

    Stand alone ••• Where was life when it had a meaning •••
    Stand alone ••• Nothing's real anymore and •••

    ••• Endless run •••
    While I'm alive, I can try not to fall while flying,
    Not to forget how to dream ••• how to love
    ••• Endless run •••

    Calling Calling, For the place of knowing
    There's more that what can be linked
    Calling Calling, Never will I look away
    For what life has left for me
    Yearning Yearning, for what's left of loving

    To stay myself longer •••
    Calling Calling now, Spirits rise and falling
    To stay myself longer •••
    Calling Calling, in the depth of longing
    To stay myself longer •••

    Since you weren't very specific as to which episodes you are speaking of, these are best guesses:

    1. If you're referring to the final episode, "Endless GIG" then it's most likely "Know Your Enemy". It's on OST 3, track 3. The song starts slowly, but the beat is the same.

    2. I'm guessing this is from episode 46, "Fabricate Fog". The song is "turkey", and is found on OST 3, track 2.

    3. If this is a question, remember to add a question mark. Anyway, technically, the answer is 'no'. The new SSS OST is considered by many as the 4th OST.

    Heh, I was typing out a reply, but you ended up beating me to it.  Hm, for #1 though I don't recognize it, and it doesn't sound like "Know Your Enemy."  IMO it seems like it's probably an unreleased track.

    There's also the "Be Human" CD soundtrack in addition to the 4 you mentioned.

    Thanks!

    For #1, I was making a best guess, since the beat in it is the same as "Know your Enemy". It could well be a variation of it, like how "flashback memory stick" (also on OST 3) is a variation of "Inner Universe".

    Actually, I was going to add "Be Human" but wasn't sure if it would be considered an OST or not. If so, there's one more add to the list: "Get9". It's really short at only four tracks.

    The original soundtracks are labeled as such. There are four: OST 1, OST+ (which added additions to OST 1 the former was only been released in Japan), OST 2, and OST 3. The rest are extra compilations not included on the OSTs. Be Human and Get 9 are two such examples.

    Mmm, even though I know it's not labeled as such I still consider "Be Human" to be an OST for the show, I guess mostly because of how it was included with one of the SE DVD releases here.  In fact, I still have the sleeve the DVD and it came in, and right there on the back it lists it as "Be Human OST+" even.  Yeah I know they make mistakes in printing the packaging materials, so that hardly makes it official or anything, but there's at least some grounds there for counting it as such at least.

    "Get 9" I don't think of so much as one cuz it's basically a mini disc with really like just one track on it that isn't part of one of the other discs.

    Be Human does contain a lot of tracks from GitS:SAC. It even contains all of the「タチコマな日々」(Tachikoma na Hibi or Tachikoma Days) music on it as well as the great song "Cream", which plays at the end of "The True Reason for the Unfinished Romance; ANGELS' SHARE". It could be considered an OST, but it's not officially one.

    Just a bit of trivia for the Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society O.S.T. (VICL-62172) disk:

    There was an alternate ending theme for 2nd GiG that was called「Snyper」or「sniper」) by fans. This ending is different then the Steve Conte "'Living Inside The Shell" ending. Anyway, many fans were begging for 'Snyper' to be added to the next GitS: SAC OST.

    When the SSS OST was announced, there was a rumor that「Snyper」was included in the disk. However, the track list doesn't not include the song. When asked about this, an official from Victor confirmed that「Snyper」was, indeed, on the SSS OST; the name was changed to from「Snyper」to「somewhere in the silence」(track 8).

    So, if you've heard a diffent ending song to 2nd GiG and liked it, now you can get a copy of it on disk.

    Anyone know the song from "Night Cruise"(second episode of 2nd gig)? I mean the one that's playing near the end when Major is flying with Gino in helicopter through the city. I can't seem to find what song is it, even the typical "find a phrase, type into google" method has failed me, so any help would be gratly aprecieated
