Unknown from M.E. is a rap-like song and the theme of Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic Adventure 2. Another version of the song was used in Sonic Adventure. It is performed by Hunnid-P and Marlon Saunders. Unlike the version for Sonic Adventure, this song is much more programmed, with more electronic loops.

This song is one of the reasons why the game was given the "Mild Lyrics" warning (along with "Deeper" and "Kick the Rock!"), because Knuckles raps "It ain't a damned thing funny."

Lyrics

Something is calling me
I don't know what (Yeah)
Something is talking
But I don't know who (Yeah)
Something is calling me
More and more
No one stops Knuckles' feet

Something is calling me
I don't know what (Yeah)
Something is talking
But I don't know who (Yeah)
Something is calling me
More and more
No one stops Knuckles' feet

K-N-U-C-K-L-E-S
Was born for a lifetime
On Angel Island (yeah)
His duty's to protect
Master Emerald diamond
Hold the climate
He's searching for shinin'

But everytime he look for the sun, can't find it
Is this the way?
The path I chose?
Then why am I living with my heart so cold?
All that I see is a storm of stones

I like to dig holes in search of gold
(Born on an island in the heavens)
Large pots of treasure make me feel much better
(The blood of my ancestors flows inside me)
If I fight Eggman, Rouge, whoever
(My duty is to save the flower)
Clench my fists tight
Become more redder
I don't wanta hurta
My passion observed
Been lonely all my life
Does it matter?
Here for the mission
Whoever want it bring it
Call me stubborn but I'm still gonna live it
(From evil deterioration)

Doing anything to get
The pieces of the Emerald
Gonna* climb the mountain, through the valley, around the hill

Wild and hungry, ain't a damned thing funny
My philosophy's my knuckles and feet!

Streaking lights, loud sounds, and instinct
Are the elements that keep me going
I am fighting my own mission
Nothing's gonna stand in my way (No)

Something is calling me
I don't know what (Yeah)
Something is talking
But I don't know who (Yeah)
Something is calling me
More and more
No one stops Knuckles' feet

(Yeah)
(Yeah)

Won't be frightened I'll stand up to all the pain and turmoil
Just believe in myself won't rely on others
I get this power to wipe out the havoc and anarchy
This is my planet, gonna fight for my destiny

Something is calling me
I don't know what (Yeah)
Something is talking
But I don't know who (Yeah)
Something is calling me
More and more
No one stops Knuckles' feet

I have no such things as weak spots
Don't approve of him but gotta trust him
This alliance has a purpose
This partnership is only temporary

Won't be frightened I'll stand up to all the pain and turmoil
Just believe in myself won't rely on others
Freedom will be waiting when serenity is restored
This is my planet I shall not surrender

I was born like this to fear no-one
I'm straight thugged out
Only live to my ones
Diamonds and gems
We 'ka battle to the end
You best to be aware of the knuckles that I send
Once they penetrate, they'll put you to your death
They hard as iron and my feet is like fire
You'll never see me run and I won't surrender
I'll just fly away like it's no other contender

Won't be frightened I'll stand up to all the pain and turmoil
Just believe in myself won't rely on others
I get this power to wipe out the havoc and anarchy
This is my planet, gonna fight... Ah!

Won't be frightened I'll stand up to all the pain and turmoil
Just believe in myself won't rely on others
Freedom will be waiting when serenity is restored
This is my planet, I shall not surrender

Something is calling me
I don't know what (Yeah)
Something is talking
But I don't know who (Yeah)
Something is calling me
More and more
No one stops Knuckles' feet

Something is calling me
I don't know what (Yeah)
Something is talking
But I don't know who (Yeah)
Something is calling me
More and more
No one stops Knuckles' feet

Something is calling me
I don't know what
Something is talking
But I don't know who
Something is calling me
More and more
No one stops Knuckles' feet

Something is calling me
I don't know what
Something is talking
But I don't know who
Something is calling me
More and more
No one stops Knuckles' feet
