This song is played during the game's opening cinematic. It is notably one of the few tracks (if not the first and only) to contain lyrical vocals. The lyrics primarily involve the general theme of the game, with one line referencing gameplay. A shortened remix is available to listen to within the unlockable Music box option of Neo Contra.


Note: The following lyrics are from the full version of the song. The remixed tune rearranges some of the lines.
Neo Contra
Oh yeah, oh yeah, Neo Contra
The smell of dusty sand and ambition
The taste of sweet victory and volition
Sensory overload, it's time to rebel
Dangerous guys are back from hell, Neo Contra
Rebuild and destroy the hope of despair
Annihilate and exterminate an enemy's lair
Stand again soldier to protect our nation
No matter what happens you're the salvation
Moments of truth beckons the danger
Aggression and combat releases the anger
Accomplish the mission, satisfaction fulfilled
Go between life and death without getting killed
Mephistopheles induces you into hell
Join the death pilgrimage, destroy and dispel
Oh, Humanity's future rests with you
Oh, Neo Contra
