"Throw It All Away" is Shadow the Hedgehog's theme from Sonic Adventure 2. It was performed by Everett Bradley. It also acts as the ending credits theme for Dark Story, similar to how "It Doesn't Matter" acted as the ending credits theme for Hero Story. 

Legacy

Besides the standard version, an instrumental version also played during the flashback scenes showing Maria. An instrumental remix of this song plays when Sonic encounters Sir Lancelot in Sonic and the Black Knight. Another appearance is the intro of it before the beginning of the Scrap Brain court in Sega Superstars Tennis and any Final Fortress level in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. An instrumental is also played when standing in front of Shadow in the White Space in Sonic Generations.

Lyrics

Now, wake up, up, up, up...
Now, wake up, up, up, up...
Now, wake up, up, up, up...
Now, wake up, up, up, up...
Everybody tries to be straight
But things are still unchanged
It's useless to resist
Their effort will be wasted
Head straight for your goal by any means
There is a door that you've never opened
There is a window with the view you have never seen
Get there, no matter how long it takes
Oh dark the darkness that dozes in the dusk
Throw it all away!
No-one can break you, nobody can tear you
You live an endless life forever
Oh dark the darkness that dozes in the dusk
Throw it all away!
You see a light wherever you go
You have to face it again and again (and again and again)
Now, wake up, up, up, up...
Now wake up, up, up, up...
Now, wake up, up, up, up...
Oh dark the darkness that dozes in the dusk
Throw it all away!
No-one can break you, nobody can tear you
You live an endless life forever
Oh dark the darkness that dozes in the dusk
Throw it all away!
You see a light wherever you go
You have to face it again and again
You live an endless life forever
Forever
Now wake up, up, up, up...
Oh dark the darkness that dozes in the dusk
Throw it all away!
No one can break you, nobody can tear you
You live an endless life forever
Oh dark the darkness that dozes in the dusk
Throw it all away!
You see a light wherever you go
You have to face it again and again
Oh dark the darkness that dozes in the dusk
Throw it all away!
No one can break you, nobody can tear you
You live an endless life forever
Oh dark the darkness that dozes in the dusk
Throw it all away!
You see a light wherever you go
You have to face it again and again
