MandoPony - Chara Lyrics




[Act I. "Broken Road"]

I've walked a hundred miles down a broken road
And in my mind I carry such a heavy load
The voices in my head I think are not my own
But I will reap the seeds that my hands have sown

My thoughts are dark and red and I am stained inside
If I stop now there'd be nowhere for me to hide
From the sins I feel crawling on my back
You can't save a soul that you lack

It's too late now
I'm too far gone
I've lost too many chances
And now I feel myself changing

I feel myself changing
With every fight I am changing
It's easier when you're changing
Don't stop me now, I am changing
With every save, I am changing
Your every move keeps me changing
Why don't you move? I am changing
I'll strike you too, I am changing
I am changing

[Act II. "Sympathy"]

When you kill me again, and again, and again, and again
Don't expect me to shed any tears in the end
I am only human, after all

I don't have very far to fall until I disconnect
For eternity, that's me, what do you see?
It's done, and nobody is free

Because the blood that we spilled can never be undone
I'd be lying if I said that I didn't have fun
When I saw you fall down on the ground
After what you've done to me don't expect any sympathy

No more friends and no more foes
No more monsters, no one to oppose me
I can finally be free

From the burden of despair, the burden to care
For every single person that I've met down there
It's done, it's over and I've won

Because the blood that we spilled can never be undone
I'd be lying if I said that I didn't have fun
When I saw you fall down on the ground
After what you've done to me don't expect any sympathy

You were acting out of self preservation
But you didn't have enough determination
Now the world resets to set the evil free
You get no mercy from me

Because the blood that we spilled can never be undone
I'd be lying if I said that I didn't have fun
When I saw you fall down on the ground
After what you've done to me don't expect any sympathy

You were acting out of self preservation
But you didn't have enough determination
Now the world resets to set the evil free
(No mercy from me)

[Act III. "Erased"]

It's finally done, I lay down my knife
He fought so hard and laid down his life
He was alone and now so am I
Left with the memory of a boy afraid to die

What have I done? Where is my home?
Were these deeds I've done truly my own?
I was so blind but now I clearly see
I only have one choice and it's in front of me

Erase the guilt, erase the blame
Erase what we built and erase this game
Erase the past and erase my name
You were looking for a friend but nobody came

    Changing
    Changing
    Changing
    Changing

  2. Not Real

    AU idea: the original player plays the geno route over and over and over and over. But then they give the game to a new player to play and they opt for pacifist. The new player has to earn the trust of all the characters who hate their guts, including sans and flowey

  3. Chara Dreemur

    Nice song.

  4. Ocман 6

    2 act sounds like
    "Centuries"
    Fallout boy

  5. Azaria Jones

    Majority of people: Chara's the bad guy!
    Others: It's the player's fault.
    Me: Either way, you or them killed innocent people.

  6. chara dremmur

    This is not me I swear that's uh I'm not guilty

    Oh hi it's me chara =)

    Lyrics:

    Changing.

    The End.







    Ok. Here's the true lyrics:

    I've walked a hundred miles down a broken road, and in my mind I carry such a heavy load.
    The voices in my head, I think are not my own.
    But I will reap the seeds that my hands have sown.
    My thoughts are dark and red.
    And I am stained inside.
    If I stop now there'd be nowhere for me to hide.
    From the sins I feel crawling on my back.
    You can't save a soul that you lack.
    It's too late now.
    I'm too far gone.
    I've lost too many chances and now I feel myself changing...
    I feel myself changing...
    With every fight, I am changing...
    It's easier, when you're changing...
    Don't stop me now, I am changing...
    With every save, I am changing...
    Your every move keeps me changing...
    Why don't you move? I am changing...
    I'll strike you too, I am changing...

    *I AM CHANGING*

    When you kill me again, and again, and again, and again, don't expect me to shed any tears in the end. I am only human after all... I don't have very far to fall until I'm disconnected, done.
    For eternity, that's me! What do you see? It's done, and NOBODY IS FREE.

    BECAUSE THE BLOOD THAT WE SPILLED CAN NEVER BE UNDONE, AND I'D BE LYING IF I SAID THAT I DIDN'T *HAVE FUN,* WHEN I SAW FALL DOWN, ON THE GROUND AFTER WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO ME...

    DON'T EXPECT ANY SIMPATHY.

    (I am changing, I am changing, I am changing...)

    No more friends and no more foes, no more monsters, no one here to oppose me! I can finally BE FREE! From the burden of despair, the burden to care. For EVERY SINGLE PERSON THAT I MET, down there it's done. It's over and IVE WON!

    BECAUSE THE BLOOD THAT WE SPILLED CAN NEVER BE UNDONE, AND I'D BE LYING IF I SAID THAT I DIDN'T *HAVE FUN* WHEN I SAW YOU FALL DOWN, ON THE GROUND, AFTER WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO ME... DON'T EXPECT ANY SIMPATHY! YOU WERE ACTING OUT OF SELF-PRESERVATION, BUT YOU DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH *DETERMINATION,* NOW THE WORLD RESETS TO SET THE *EVIL FREE!*

    SO DON'T EXPECT ANY SIMPATHY.

    (Music)

    BECAUSE THE BLOOD THAT WE SPILLED CAN NEVER BE UNDONE, AND I'D BE LYING IF I SAID THAT I DIDN'T *HAVE FUN* WHEN I SAW YOU FALL DOWN, ON THE GROUND, AFTER WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO ME... DON'T EXPECT ANY SIMPATHY! YOU WERE ACTING OUT OF SELF-PRESERVATION, BUT YOU DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH *DETERMINATION,* NOW THE WORLD RESETS TO SET THE *EVIL FREE!*

    SO DON'T EXPECT SIMPATHY...

    (Music)

    It's finally done. I lay down my knife. He fought so hard... And laid down his life... He was alone and now so am I. Left with the memory of a boy afraid to die!

    WHAT HAVE I DONE?
    WHERE IS MY HOME?
    WERE THESE DEEDS I'VE DONE, *TRULY MY OWN?*
    I was so blind... but now I clearly see. I only have one choice in front of me....

    *ERASE* THE GUILT.

    *ERASE* THE BLAME.

    *ERASE* WHAT WE'VE BUILT, AND *ERASE* THIS GAME.

    *ERASE* THE PAST, AND *ERASE* MY NAME.

    You were looking for a friend, but nobody came...

    But nobody came...


    The End.

  11. it’s maia not miai

    damn omg this reminds me of being in sixth grade i’m so glad that’s over

  12. Zere Miley

    *I LOVE CHARA. THEY'RE MY FAVORITE.*

  13. Eugenia Bukhman

    Wow, it's really been almost 4 years? Time flies. This is very edgy but I still love it <3

  14. Hazel BOOGA

    You're probably changing after every fight because you got blood all over your clothes.

  15. Jeongwon Choi

    a song to the player

  16. Olivia Mann

    I feel this song well with altering some of the lyrics should be asgore singing because some of it fits well for him.

  17. Yellow Sky Animations

    this perfectly describes chara. as its the player, us, who made them do this. and its us who made them change in such the way they did.

  18. Love Brown

    2:10 this is where the the song gets better

  19. Blue Otter

    Thos came out in 2016, yet this is the first time I'm hearing this. It's nice.

  20. Loney Kids

    i got chills

  21. DinoRampage

    "What you've done to me"
    It seems your directing this bit at Sans.. and I've just got to say.
    What HE did to YOU?


    You killed his brother, the only person he truly cares about, then LEFT. He watched you, and you didn't change. You killed the rest of his friends, even causing one to commit suicide. He isn't seeking revenge, not really. But he's also not trying to keep himself alive. In the end, he's acting because he has to. He didn't want to fight you, not really. Not even after you killed his brother. But then it came down to the universe's protection. And he had to. He didn't want to, or he would fight us on any route where we had killed Papyrus. But.. he doesn't. He doesn't w a n t it. And we could make the argument, 'Well he knows we would win, why would he?" Then why does he fight us on a Genocide run? He KNOWS he can't win, but he tries, and manages to get pretty far because of what you did to his friends and family. But still, mostly for the universe's protection. But then you kill him.. just.. because.. you.. can. All he did was protect the one person left in the Underground other than a psychotic flower. His king. Because at this point, he knows you won't change. You would have already if you were going to, so he just fights to keep you away from the only one left. He wasn't able to stop you from killing Papyrus, because he didn't know if you would change or not. But in the end, he knows you won't. So he doesn't judge you. He just keeps you from killing the only one left. No grudge or anything. If you RESET, he'll forgive you after ALL YOU DID. All he wanted.. was to protect. So he did.




    Sorry for going insane.

    The last part it makes me think firsk haves one ewxd

  25. Aubrey heart Aubreylynn heart

    chara was looking for a friend but nobody came:D I don't really like the voices but sans he's voice is pretty good

  26. Ant Vatansever

    I didnt liked the song that much but the ending was AMAZING

    "You were looking for a friend"
    " *BUT NOBODY CAME* "

  27. II Ooferz II

    I can hear jeff the killer theme in the background

  28. Ace Speedwagon Kiza

    Well fuck, its been so long since I've listened to this gem. Talk about memories

  29. ie Taylor

    Kinda sounds like jack black singing it.

  30. Drizzle

    CHARA IS NOT THE VILLAIN!!1!1!11!

  31. Save it for The court

    daaaaaamn, that was way better than i expected. not that i didn't think the music and vocals themselves would be bad, i knew those would be good, its freaking mandopony. but i just expected a song about chara being a psychopath who likes killing people, but instead you told the actual story. im happy that more people are realizing that chara isn't the bad guy.

  32. Yeetus Deletus

    Chara in the thumbnail looks like a bear 😂

  33. commentary_killer

    Why did they make puberty into a song

  34. steve ack

    not sure why but I think they're changing

  35. Dr. Edward Boss

    Nobody seems to realise that Chara is just a way for players to shift the blame from themselves.

  36. Joana Irigoien

    I think Chara never was bad, i think like that because if you do genocide 2 times in a row she/he said you to do other rute and she/he dosn't know why the player still bad, and she/he doesn't understand that feeling. If he/she was bad, he/she said to you to do more times genocide, but it dosn't this case.

  37. Shawn Guthrie

    The lines "you were looking for a friend but nobody came" and "you cant save a soul that you lack sent CHILLS down my spine.

  38. Drippy The InkWing

    Frisk, it’s about time we talk about puberty. It’s a time where you change a shit ton

  39. Lemon -Tees

    Just call it "I am changing"

  40. Doctor Games101

    AKA "The Art of War." Good music 🤘

  41. xX_Mystix_Gacha_Xx

    so I'm over here listening to this while re-reading over the book im working on called, "Temple Forest", and the main character just broke the frigging 4th wall XD

  42. Geno Animations

    99% of comments something about changing 1% of comments appreciating this song

  43. sad truths

    whos still watching this in 2019?

  44. Angel Queen

    Frisk is changing? Maybe we'll find out their gender!

  45. WaffleKakes Art

    I always get the chills at "and erase this game"

  46. Andrea Sisco

    why is there so many I'm changing in this video gosh darn it so many

  47. xX•dark Opal•Xx

    I started to cry at the end

  48. Big Rat

    This is pretty lit, not gonna lie. You should do one for the Pacifist route

  49. Sad and dying

    Guys I'm not sure but I think Frisk is changing

  50. Nik54321

    Everyone, everyone, stay away from frisk she/he is in the edgy phase. Like posting something edgy with no sarcasm at all.
    Edit:whoever liked my comment, wtf it wasnt even funny

  51. Sol Alauie

    Te descubrí

  52. Rotten Candy

    This song sounds REALLY edgey if you take context that this is an Undertale fan song.

  53. N8THEGR8

    When suddenly I’m changing, violently I’m changing

  54. Злая Помидорка

    "Were these deeds I've done truly my own?"
    *YES, THEY WERE.*

  55. _ G A B I _ G A C H A_

    I think some of the song is talking about the player not him(Chara)

  56. Frisk the human

    I love when chara. Says im changing

  57. Grookey Gang

    Chara isn't evil.






    And other hilarious jokes you can tell yourself.

  58. GT Irondoor55

    Because the blood that we spilled can never be undone
    I would be lying if i said i didint have fun


    Jeez chara chill like frisk its just a game

  59. Da True Grape boi

    But nobody came....

  60. • Koku Da Backup •

    Chara Is Gonna Change...Nobody Should Look Or Stop Her

  61. Frisk mtt

    I really love this song and is listening to it at least one time every week. But I am a little mad at they are saying 'he' to Frisk. Frisk is represented as a they/them in the game. Does everyone have to sexulice them ALL THE TIME? Please nonbinary people exist and we have to respect them. I'm not saying you should change the song or that you're a sexist. But please think about it until next time!

    Peeble Kitty

    ​@Frisk mtt Well, Toby also said that the name for Chara put in by the player was expected to be the player's own name too. And once again there's no apparent gender by design or game. "They/them" are completely gender-neutral terms. As in, they don't refer to a nonbinary character specifically, it could also just be talking about a cis person whose gender is unknown by the speaker, and Frisk never tells the others their gender in-game, so it would make sense. They don't even know Frisk's name until the end of a pacifist run.
    Anyway, I could go rambling about the likelihood of each character having been each gender and the apparent lack of care about gender in the monster race, but at the end of the day it's a videogame character with an unspecified gender. Not necessarily non-binary, just never defined, and toby said himself that it's meant to be up to the player's personal interpretation from the start.
    And by all means, interpret it for yourself however you want. You can say they're genderqueer, and honestly that's probably most accurate explanation as far as the actual game lore goes.
    If the characters were confirmed canonically nonbinary I'd agree with you that it's disrespectful to call them male or female. But the whole point of toby saying what he did was to confirm that there isn't any one sex or gender orientation that is officially the Correct Way To Interpret™, and forcing your interpretations onto other fans despite this is just as rude.

    Frisk mtt

    @Peeble Kitty ok ok but can people still stop making melonboobs on Frisk

    Peeble Kitty

    @Frisk mtt That'd be great x-x fandoms can be cursed like that sometimes

    Frisk mtt

    @Peeble Kitty yeah

  62. RoughThief

    Aside from the repetitive annoying chaaaaaaaaaaaanging howl a truly great song.

  63. Olivia Mann

    I imagine in the transformers movies by Michael bay like this:

    They killed the rest of auto bots and some decepicons and they soon feel guilty after they saw what happened if the autobots weren’t here in the first place and the people cried for the autobots but none answered all were gone (where are they now?) *inspired by this “where is my home?”) and the “K.S.I” and “CEMETERY WIND” were dumbfounded including the military when the machines they successfully created were quickly destroyed like in the lyrics “what have I done” (changed it to we) and they layed down their weapons and accepted death and they knew the autobots would forever remember a “race afraid to die” and the humans forever in guilt in memory of betraying the autobots but not by joining the decepticons but by hunting the cybertronians on both factions but they just couldn’t believe because of what they had done (were these deeds truly my *our* own and they have no hope now (there is only one choice infront of me) and the world ended and no one is left.

  64. Romeo Chen

    The most important of all...

    damn goosebump

  70. Odessa The Reptile

    i don't think she deserves forgiveness she made a little girl with a pure heart spiral out of control and turn to genocide

    FloofiBoii

    Chara didn't make Frisk do it
    The player did

    Matthew Williams

    The player is at fault. Chara, like Frisk, is a blank slate.

  71. Loney Kids

    chara isn't actually evil, but thats fine because this song works in that context too, because it could be chara singing.
    look up the truth about chara. its a video that puts this into perfect sense.

    RWBY is Trash

    @SparkleWolf404You aren't *completely * correct. Once you get to the end and see that Chara wanted to Erase the world, you can obviously tell she wasn't the *nicest* person in life. She did receive a knife as a present.

    RWBY is Trash

    @The Gacha Red Wolf What did you mean 'blinded by hate'.....In fact, what do you mean by ' if you dont give your soul to them they'll be confuse,'? The player nor frisk had anything to do with any of chara's actions wihin the game

    RWBY is Trash

    @The Gacha Red Wolf Aaaaand it goes to them. not the player. Fantastic. -Where tf are you getting this from`

  87. IamGonce SCB

    I love this song, don't get me wrong. But the information is canonly inaccurate ^^

    Peeble Kitty

    Not really, the song also fits Chara's POV

  88. Pyxas

    I see a lot of people in these comments complaining about how the song portrays Chara as evil. People are arguing that Chara isn’t evil, since it’s us, the players, are the ones controlling them. My argument against this is that they are shown to have done evil things before the game begins, and the influence of the player starts. The tapes in the true lab reveal that they poisoned Asgore, making him really sick. Asriel says it was an accident, but it is strongly hinted at that Chara did this on purpose, and at the very least, they felt little remorse, laughing about the situation instead of feeling bad. The other thing was the whole situation where Chara tried to seize control of Asriel’s body and kill a bunch of humans. I could and should cite this as a piece of evidence since the game sets a clear precedent that killing is bad, but most Chara apologists will just say that they were doing what they thought they had to in order to save the monsters, even though in doing so they would be putting Asriel who they supposedly “loved” in harm’s way. At the end of the game, Asriel even says that Chara wasn’t the great person he thought they were. It’s fine with me for people to like Chara, I just don’t see why we have to lie about who they were. You can like evil characters. That doesn’t make them less evil.

    Peeble Kitty

    iii suggest you watch https://youtu.be/MYHXpdNqdGs and/or read https://determinators.tumblr.com/post/159674581147/greetings-uh-so-ive-been-working-on-this
    It's not an unreasonable assumption that Chara is/was evil, but there's much more to it

  89. S a n s

    Can I use this 4 a speed paint bg song plz
    I give the credits 2 u

  90. lord baby

    Why do ppl think chara is evil for fuck sake

  91. Skeleton Shard

    when mom find poop sock

  92. Sans The Skeleton

    Wonder what would happen if we gave Frisk full control over their body and see what would happen.

  93. Fakhri Athallah

    Idk why i listening to this again but, WAW

  94. Samarian's Channel

    I like this song :3

  95. Aja Bryant

    Even after 2 years of being out of and not associating with Undertale and the fandom I can still say this song still bops and Chara nor Frisk were evil. It's always been you, the player. You, as the player, ultimately decide whether they're evil or good.
