Howling at the full moon Fight against the protests We have no function to cry... So when was that day that we lost our souls Forgot about myself, forgot about instinct Artificial landscapes are leaving us battered We just stared at the full broken skies On and on and we're rusting For we will not stop breathing the air, hello Howling at the full moon Fight against the protests We have no function to try dreaming inside of a dream burning like a bug in a flame give us the Reason to be here! To be here
Song Connections / RemixesEdit
- THE REASON marks Black Rose Garden's first non-boss song in the DanceDanceRevolution series, as well as Black Rose Garden's first song in the DanceDanceRevolution series originating from a CS release.
- THE REASON is unlocked on DanceDanceRevolution 2013 by reaching Enjoy Level 45. After reaching Enjoy Level 95, a new Challenge chart for THE REASON becomes unlocked.
- The first stop in THE REASON makes all regular 4th notes after it land on yellow 16th notes instead.
- THE REASON's Challenge chart shares many similarities with Unreal's Expert chart being that they both have a very high number of jumps. Coincidentally, both songs are made by Black Rose Garden.
- Unlike most of the other Wii transplants in the DDR arcade series, THE REASON's album art uses a different font from its DDR HOTTEST PARTY banner.
- As with all other DDR HOTTEST PARTY and DDR HOTTEST PARTY 2 songs that appear on DDR X2 and later arcade versions, THE REASON does not have its special dance routine from DDR HOTTEST PARTY. The reason for this is currently unknown.
- The Air value for THE REASON's Single Challenge chart was originally 136.667 (136) when it debuted. As of August 1, 2013, it has been lowered down to 124.176 (124).
