Bourne Legacy theme music: Extreme Ways (Bourne’s Legacy) by Moby

For the first two Bourne films, The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy, the original version of the song was used during the closing credits. A new version, “Extreme Ways (Bourne’s Ultimatum),” was recorded for the third film, The Bourne Ultimatum, and released both on that film’s soundtrack on July 31, 2007, and as a one-track CD single on September 17, 2007.[1] It samples the drum break from Melvin Bliss’s “Synthetic Substitution” and the strings from the beginning of Hugo Winterhalter’s cover of “Everybody’s Talkin’”. Another version of the song, “Extreme Ways (Bourne’s Legacy),” was recorded for the fourth film in the series, The Bourne Legacy, and released on that film’s soundtrack on August 7, 2012. This version was recorded partly at Moby’s home studio in Los Angeles and partly at Sony Pictures Studios. At Sony, Moby worked with a 110 piece orchestra with the help of composer James Newton Howard, who scored the film, and composer Joe Trapanese. In addition to the lyrical track, the group also recorded a purely orchestral version of the song. Both versions were released as singles for digital download on July 31, 2012. Wikipedia®.

Moby – Extreme Ways Lyrics:
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 will part the colors of my sea.
Is a perfect color sea.

Extreme ways that help me.
They help me out late at night.
Extreme places I had gone.
That never seen any light.
Dirty basements, dirty noise.
Dirty places coming home.
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 sounds that told me.
They held me down every night.
I didn’t have much to say.
I didn’t give up the line.
I closed my eyes and closed myself.
And closed my world and never opened up to anything.
but that could get me at all.

I had to close down everything.
I had to close down my mind.
Too many things could cut me.
Too much could 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.
There is always room in life for this.

Oh baby, oh baby.
Then it fell apart, it fell apart.
Oh baby, oh baby.
Then it fell my heart, it fell apart.
Oh baby, oh baby.
Then it fell apart, it fell apart.
Oh baby, oh baby.
Like it always does, always does.
