Composition[edit]

"Face It!" is approximately one minute and six seconds long and plays at a tempo of 98 beats per minute. It has a time signature of 4/4 time and is written in the key of Gb [G flat] Major for the entire piece. "Face It!" does have a short introduction, but leads into the repeated "melody" section, allowing for smooth transitions between loops. Each loop is eight measures long, lasting around twenty seconds each. The instrumentation consists of cellos, an organ, and a timpani.

The piece is characterized by a driving sixteenth note runs in cellos, hard timpani notes on beats one and two, and a longer organ melody sitting over the underlying cello and timpani parts. The persistent sixteenth note runs creates a type of anxiety or feeling of urgency, creating a harsher tone; a tone that is perfect for a battle theme.
