Sentenced is an Arknights music track acting as the leitmotif of Penance, performed by the American singer Allie Armstrong.

Introduction
The gavel rings out through the courtroom.
What I upheld were but a skewed set of scales...
Yes, the past asks for remedy in time.
[Sentenced], to a million confessions and cries...

Lyrics

I couldn't follow our distorted old rubric.
I tried so hard to be the one who improves it,
but the harder I fought, the worse we got.
I got lost and I let my morals get diluted.

A gavel strike can end a life,
but still my gavel falls like endless cannonballs.
The sounds echo back and haunt my dreams.
They're taunting me, telling me that I'm the one who will be sentenced,
sentenced today.

How did my own code get so fragile and fluid?
Isn't it obvious that my conscience has bruises?
I just wanna come clean, don't you see?
My hands are tied by an institution in ruins.
All the weight on my shoulder
replaced by monsters.
The face in the mirror,
I barely know her.
I became a foot soldier who swings for the ones that hold power.

A gavel strike can end a life,
but still my gavel falls like endless cannonballs.
The sounds echo back and haunt my dreams.
They're taunting me, telling me that I'm the one who will be sentenced.
Sentenced to a lifetime of nightmares.

(Oo-oh, oo-oh.)
(Oo-oh, oo-oh.)

In another life,
I would pay the price
of a million crimes
until the end of time.
