Our Wounded Bodies Shall Advance Towards the Light (called We Wounded Follow the Light on the Revival disc and the in-game jukebox in Shevat, sometimes unofficially referred to as The Wounded Shall Advance into the Light) is Disc 1, Track 22 on the Xenogears Original Soundtrack and track 23 on the Xenogears Original Soundtrack Revival Disc -the first and the last-. The track was remixed for CREID (the album) as CREID (the song). A vocal remix of the track, We, the Wounded Shall Advance into the Light (Revival Version), was made for the Revival disc, and was also performed at the Xenogears 20th Anniversary Concert -The Beginning and the End- and is the 10th track on the associated Blu-Ray disc. Finally, A Prayer for the Joy Man Desires is a remix of this track for organ. The track is one of the tracks playable in the Nortune jukebox, under the option 'Requiem'.
