Ghost In The Shell SAC OST

Motoko: Are you still using that revolver? You should stop worrying about the automatics jamming up.

Tosuga: I like my Matever.

Motoko: Well, effective stopping power is more important than your preference in guns. Since it's my ass on the line out there, use the Zastaber.

Tosuga: Yes, Major. There's something I've wanted to ask ever since I started. Why did you transfer a guy like me from the police force?

Motoko: Because we need a guy like you.

Tosuga: Huh?

Motoko: Number one, you're an honest cop. Number two, you've never stepped out of line. Three, you're a family man. And, except for the slight brain augmentation, your body is almost completely human. If we all reacted the same way, we'd be predictable. And there's always more than one way to view a situation. What's true for the group is also true for the individual. It's simple. Overspecialize and you breed in weakness. It's slow death.

The opening theme for Stand Alone Complex is "Inner Universe", performed by Origa, with lyrics written by Origa and Shanti Snyder in Russian, English and Latin.

Ol'ga Vital'evna Yakovleva (Ольга Витальевна Яковлева, born October 12, 1970 in Коченево, Russia), better known as Origa, is a Russian singer who works mostly in Japan. She gained popularity outside of Japan with the release of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex soundtracks.
