The soundtrack for Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs was written composed by Jessica Curry. The soundtrack contains 51 tracks, some of which include dialogue from in-game. It was recorded at Middle Street Studio, Portsmouth, by Philip Thompson; and at The Square, London, by Jarrad Hearman.

Aside from writing and composing, Curry played the piano for the soundtrack. She also employed several unusual instruments for the soundtrack which she played herself. These include a glass harmonica, a zither, and a waterphone.

She also had help from other musicians when creating the soundtrack, such as soprano singer Joanna Forbes L'Estrange (as heard on tracks like Dieses Herz and Mors Praematura), cellist Jonathan Byers, and her own son Oscar Pinchbeck (credited as "Boy Soprano").

The only track not written by Jessica Curry is "When I was a Laddy", which was written and performed by Cameron Clegg and the Lardons, featuring Glen Capra on pub piano.

The soundtrack can be streamed and bought directly from Jessica Curry on her bandcamp page.

Dieses Herz[]

Original german lyrics[]

Schlaf mein Kind, schlaf
Dein Herz schlägt unter meiner Hand
Und ich wiege Dich
in diesen offenen Wunden mein
Dieses Herz

Sanft weiter durch mich
Und Dein Herz gehört mir
Und ich wiege Dich
in dieser finster werdenden Liebe
Dieses Herz

Träum diese heilige Wunde
wird bluten
und die Engel trauern
nur um Dich schlafen zu sehen
Mein Kind, schlaf und ich
werde Dich wiegen.

English Translation[]

Sleep, my child, sleep
Your heart beats underneath my hand
And I cradle you
In these open wounds of mine
This heart

Softly on, through me
And your heart is mine
And I cradle you
In this darkening love
This heart

Dream this holy wound will bleed
And the angels grieve
Just to see you sleep
My child, sleep and I
Will cradle you

Christi Eleison
("This world is a machine! A Machine for pigs! Fit only for the slaughtering of pigs!")

A Child's Shadow[]

The lyrics of this track consists of in-game dialogue.

"I have stood knee deep in mud and bone and filled my lungs with mustard gas. I have seen two brothers fall. I have lain with holy wars and copulated with the autumnal fallout. I have dug trenches for the refugees; I have murdered dissidents where the ground never thaws and starved the masses into faith. A child's shadow burnt into the brickwork. A house of skulls in the jungle. The innocent, the innocent Mandus; trod, and bled, and gassed, and starved, and beaten and murdered and enslaved! This, is your coming century! They will eat them Mandus, they will make pigs of you all, and they will bury their snouts into your ribs and they will eat your hearts!"

The New Century Dawns[]

The lyrics of this track consists of in-game dialogue.

"I lay there, and watched the god I had created die. At the end when we were cold as the stone we had hewn his body from; when the lights were nearly all extinguished; we heard in the silent distance, the Manpigs singing to one another. Then, as the last lights were gone, and we lay together in the deep, they drifted away, and all was silent. Such a silence, I have never known. And as the dust settled on my open eyes and we lay together embraced forever, I heard miles above us, the sounds of the city turning over in its sleep. A church bell ringing out. And in that moment, the new century was born."

When I Was a Laddy[]

When I was a laddy, a laddy at school
With a head full of lettuce, a belly of gruel
No training to speak of, spit out a fool
Thought life was for working cheap shots and cruel.

The masters would tussle and argue and fight
Boys we made property currency blight
God forbid anyone show us the light
Avast with the caning to put us to right.

Cause they're mine, mine, You filthy old swine
Get your own pigs to feed off, These ones are mine.

And then we were men to the factory bound
A penny a week and a face pushed to ground
No matter if you lose a finger or hand
Owners and workers the fight goes around.

Cause they're mine, mine, You filthy old swine
Get your own pigs to feed off, These ones are mine.

I married a lass as my father before
And set to make babies to feed to the war
As we went to our business and knock at the door
The boss cried keep writhing, the factory needs more.

But they're mine, mine, You filthy old swine
Get your own pigs to feed off, These ones are mine.

So if you come looking for labour to spoil
Men who don't question, men who will toil
To your factories they're product, to your banks they are oil
To chew up and spit out and grind out for soil.

But they're mine, mine, You filthy old swine
Get your own pigs to feed off, These ones are mine.

Cause they're mine, mine, You filthy old swine
Get your own pigs to feed off!
These ones are mine!

This Little Piggy[]

This track contains lyrics from the old english nursery rhyme from 1760, as well as the same lyrics from Christ Have Mercy. It is the track used in the Halloween teaser for Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.

This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed at home,
This little piggy had roast beef,
And this little piggy had none,
And this little piggy went "wee wee wee", all the way home.

Kyrie Eleison Christi
Kyrie Eleison Christi
Kyrie Eleison
Christi Eleison
Christi Eleison
