Song Lyrics in FFXIV: Compilation, Discussion, and Interpretation (2022)

This topic will, hopefully, serve as a compilation detailing the lyrics of every song with vocals present in the game. For songs with vocals which have had its lyrics released by SE via either soundtracks or Developer Blogs, they will simply be copied and pasted here.

However, for songs that SE hasn't released the lyrics too, then this topic will also serve as a place of discussion for those of us who want to share our interpretations and work together to come up with the most accurate lyrics possible. Feel free to post whatever your interpretation of the lyrics are--the more people working together, the closer we'll get to knowing what's being sung.

Further, given the nature of these songs, this topic may also help those of us who enjoy the game's lore to better understand the characters or events referenced within these songs. After all, why give someone or something a song and have it not be about them?

For reference, songs with the following marks mean as such:

* = name has been officially released by SE
+ = lyrics have been officially released by SE
*+ = name & lyrics have been officially released by SE

So, without further ado, let us begin with Answers and keep going! And thanks to Catapult, Enkidoh, and Umo for having posted the 1.0 songs' lyrics in other topics--it made it a lot easier to find them! And thanks to lololink for providing the lyrics to the Heavensward teaser trailer theme from the 2014FanFest! Thanks to Anonymoose, as well, for providing information on Ultima's lyrics from Live Letter XIX--there aren't any, sadly. Thanks for Annana for the Eorzea Symphony song lyrics, as well (we finally have something for Ultima!). Thanks goes to Rainy Moon on Fenrir for posting both Japanese and English lyrics of Byakko's theme, Amatsu Kaze, on their Lodestone blog.

Answers - Theme of FFXIV*+
Music: Nobuo Uematsu
Arrangement: Tsutomu Naria
Lyrics: Yaeko Sato & Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Susan Calloway
Choir: Tomoko Kanda, Junko Menish, Haruhiko Azuma, Satofumi Suyama

I close my eyes, tell us why must we suffer?
Release your hands, for your will drags us under.
My legs grow tired, tell us where must we wander?
How can we carry on if redemption's beyond us?

To all of my children in whom Life flows abundant.
To all of my children in whom Death hath passed his judgement.
The soul yearns for honour, and the flesh the hereafter.
Look to those who walked before to lead those who walked after.

Shining is the Land's light of justice.
Ever flows the Land's well of purpose.
Walk free, walk free, walk free, believe...
The Land is alive, so believe...

Now open your eyes while our plight is repeated.
Still deaf to our cries, lost in hope we lie defeated.
Our souls have been torn and our bodies forsaken.
Bearing sins of the past, for our future is taken.

War born of strife, these trials persuade us not.
[Feel what?] [Learn what?]
Words without sound, these lies betray our thoughts.
Mired by a plague of doubt, the Land, she mourns.
[See what?] [Hear what?]
Judgment binds all we hold to a memory of scorn.
Tell us why, given Life, we are meant to die, helpless in our cries?

Thy Life is a riddle, to bear rapture and sorrow.
To listen, to suffer, to entrust unto tomorrow.
In one fleeting moment, from the Land doth life flow.
Yet in one fleeting moment, for anew it doth grow.
In that same fleeting moment,
Thou must live
Die
And know.

Fallen Angel - Theme of Garuda*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Arrangement: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox

Now fall...

Falling too far from the light
Deeper into the night

Lost here inside my own hell
I am a broken angel

Good King Moggle Mog XII - Theme of the Good King*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Vocals: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox, Yuriko Nagata

Good King Moggle Mog, Good King Mog!
Lord of all the land! (Kupo!)
Good King Moggle Mog, Good King Mog!
Rules with iron hand!
Good King Moggle Mog, Good King Mog!
Leads the brave and true!
Good King Moggle Mog, Good King Mog!
Now come along and meet his trusty crew!
Kupo!

Kupta Kapa will clip your tuft,
Split your hairs, and ruffle your fluff!
Kupdi Koop will throw you for a loop,
Brave a wall of whiskers to find his troop!
Kupli Kipp is sly yet sweet,
He'll tickle your nose then tickle your feet.
Jolly Kogi's eye for fun is clear,
He'll put an arrow straight in your rear!

*Laughter*

Pukla Puki plays with fire,
Poms a-burning on her pyre!
Puksi Piko likes her buddies big,
To sing a little song and dance a little jig!
Pukna Pako shivers and shakes,
She'll stick you in the gut, and give you bellyaches!
And who's behind them standing tall?
Why the biggest moogle of them all!

(Who!? Who!? Whoever could it be!?)

Good King Moggle Mog, Good King Mog!
Kind and Noble Lord! (Hear, hear!)
Now nod your noggle nog, and mind your gob!
Or he'll put you to the sword!
Good King Moggle Mog, Good King Mog!
His judgment you will dread!
Good King Moggle Mog, Good King Mog!
What do you decree?
What do you decree?
What do you decree!?

Off with their heads!

Corvus fortis

Behold! His wings enfold the world
He calls down the red light of destruction
He glows with the red light of victory

Under the Weight - Theme of Titan*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Arrangement: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox

Wrought from the rock that stands upon old,
With heart of black and a stare that's cold.
Cold are the hands that grasp at your soul,
'Fore the graves are dug and the death knells toll.

Tempered in the flows of the mountain's core,
Where the rage runs red twixt shore and shore.
Shorn from the world 'neath the blazing sun,
Bound to the dark, for the light I shun!

Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (In hell I wait)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Succumb to the hate that corrupts your fate!

Into the dark of an endless night,
Where the pulse of the land offers no respite.
In spite of the blood that was spilled before,
You whet your blades, you thirst for more.

Now kneel overdweller, your lord commands,
There's no salvation for the sons of man.
The skies will tremble and the earth will quake,
From the crumbling walls no one escapes!

Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (In hell I wait)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
I'll drag you right down to the seventh gate!

Silence, from the knife that softly severs.
Mistaken, for an unsung prayer.
Now rising from the soundless Deep. Awaken!
White fury, blinding indigo!

Swell, ye seas of old; Leviathan! Leviathan!
Surging tides grow bold; Leviathan!
Seething currents whorl; Leviathan! Leviathan!
To swallow up the world; Leviathan!

Thunder Rolls - Theme of Ramuh*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Arrangement: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Akane Ikeya

Ula menida tula oh (Hoary Arbor, Lord of Light)
Tela omnida tula ei (Thine advent quelleth creeping night)
Ona ramuhda deme os (The wicked burn, their pyres bright)
Nola tulama tela ei (Smote by Levin's blinding might)

Soul without a name, heed my call
Sin doth stain the hearts of us all
The worm hath burrowed deep and hath grown
Soon he too shall reap what is sown

Step into the storm, know its mercy
Let the wind and the rain crash down over thee
Lightning bright, thunder bold
Guiding us forevermore

Soul fallen from grace, ware thee well
Judgment thou must face, thine own hell
The worm stirreth within, black as night
Breeding deeper sin, foul its blight

Soul, thine end is nigh. Take mine hand
All life must return to the land
Lingered hath the worm, overlong
Purge thy flesh of fear and be strong

Step in from the storm, praise its mercy
Let the sting of the rain ne'er stray far from thee
Lightning bright, thunder bold
Freeing us forevermore

Now lift thine heavy head and vanquish thy sorrow
Lightning doth strike
Thunder doth roll

Now turn thy gaze ahead and look to the morrow
Lightning shall strike
Thunder shall roll on

Oblivion - Theme of Shiva*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Arrangement: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Ayumi Murata & Akane Ikeya

Staring at death, I take a breath, there's nothing left.
Now close my eyes, for one last time, and say goodbye.
Lying naked while the snow falls all around me;
Drifting closer to the edge but She won't have me!
Wake up in sweat, full of regret, try to forget.
These memories, lurking beneath, lost in a dream...

Unchosen paths, a broken past, forespoken wrath.
The pain won't cease, I'll find no peace, no sweet release.
Fragile creatures, we are taught to fear the Reaper;
Ever running, we are dead before we meet Her!
These voices telling me let it go! (Let it all go!)
I try and try but I can't say no! (Try and say no!)
This endless nightmare has just begun! (Nowhere to run!)
My heart is dragging me down into oblivion!

The endless lies, I've cast aside, locked them in ice.
Steeled is my soul, my blood grown cold, I've gained control.
Fearless creatures, we all learn to fight the Reaper;
Can't defeat Her, so instead I'll have to be Her!
These voices screaming to let it go! (Never let go!)
This time I'm screaming back no no no! (Go on say no!)
My mind's made up, yeah my fear is gone! (Where have you gone?)
Open my eyes now here I come, oblivion!

For the last time (I won't say goodbye)
For the last time (I won't say goodbye)
For the last time (I won't say goodbye)
For the last time

Heavensward - Theme of FFXIV: Heavensward*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Arrangement: Yoshitaka Suzuki
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Omega Bone

Beneath the gazing stars
Vales deep and forests dark
Betrayed by loyal hands, Her wrath stirred

Bound fast unto our fate
One path, one burden great
Yet ever do our aching souls point Heavensward
Ever ring outs our song

Yes, ever do our aching souls march Heavensward
As they've done for so long

To their trespass
We are Witness
Here to pass this
Final sentence

No forgiveness
No deliverance
Only Justice
Only Vengeance

Wills unbending
Faith unending
Stone defending
Now our steel shall sing

Guide us, O mighty Fury
Guide us to victory!

Dragon part (Dragon / English)

Dys an sohm in / Our slumber disturbed
Rohs an kyn ala na / All my brothers wake
Mah morn narr / The saviors must perish
Sahl djahs afah an / Vengeance will be ours
Eorzea!

Dragonsong - Main Theme of Heavensward*+
Music: Nobuo Uematsu
Arrangement: Tsutomu Naria
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox & Kazutoyo Maehiro
Vocals: Susan Calloway

Children of the land, do you hear?
Echoes of truths that once rang clear.
Two souls intertwined,
One true love they did find,
Bringing land and heavens near.

But flames that burn full bright soon fell dark.
Memories dimmed by shadowed hearts.
In the waxing gloom,
Did wane the lover's moon,
Watching as their worlds drift apart.

One soul's cry, a passion dwelling within.
Sacrifice, a final plea to her kin!
Yet this bond of hope,
By treachery was broke,
Scattering her words to the wind.

Swelling overlong, seas of blood, are a song
And death an afterthought,
To those who fight for naught.

A throne, lying empty...
A reign incomplete.
Alone for eternity...
A pain without cease.

Children of the land answer this:
Why must you turn to empty bliss?
Why break trust?
Why turn the past to dust?
Seeking solace in the abyss.

Tell me why create a circle none can break?
Why must you let go the life you were bestowed?
This I'll fear I'll never know!

Never know...

Unbending Steel - Theme of Ravana*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Vocals: Dan
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox

High on high I stand,
Gazing down to see
The endless garden
Awaiting me!

Red bloometh the rose of conviction.
And red bloometh the rose of hate.
Yes, red bloometh the roses of contest!
Firmly bound to its fate!

And the war it wageth on!
The storm it rageth on!
The bold ever fight on!
Their lives, echoed in song!

HAH!

Fall, like snow, they fall.
Petals plucked and strewn.
Yet from their seeds grow
This war anew!

Blood trickling down from my fullers.
And blood trickling down from mine hands.
Yes, blood trickling down to Hydaelyn.
Until I alone stand!

And the war still wageth on!
The storm still rageth on!
The bold blindly march on!
Their lives lost in a Song!

Imagination - Theme of the Aetheromchemical Research Facility*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken

Guide us, O mighty Fury

Locus - Boss Theme of Alexander Gordias, Midas*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Arrangement: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox & Masayoshi Soken

Seeking the peace of reason
Sheep in a peaceless season
Reason to keep believing
Waken the beast who's sleeping

Let go this destiny, you're caught in a trance
Ever marking time inside a dream, no sign of advance
You see, the mortal coil we serve is taut like a spring
Step back! Two-step, two-step, two-step one two three

Our world's a fantasy, no more than a test
Ever feeding off the fallacy creating this mess
Deep down inside this bleak machine with all the rest
Break free! Two-phase, two-phase electricity

Time turning up the volume
Time turning on us always
No time enough tomorrow
For turning back to where we began

Twenty-two sectors tested
Fragments in one direction
Celestial noise detected
Delirium unsuspected
Static tuned in to reason
Time in the aether deepens
Transmissions blink uncompleted
Seven two three two three...<send>

Arrested destiny, alone in a trance
No escaping from this waking dream, no hope for advance,
You see, the mortal coil we serve is naught but a spring
Unwind! Too slow, too quick, too much to believe

Your world's a fantasy, you've failed the test
Ever forging all new fallacies creating more mess
Directly through this bleak machine, with all of the rest
DC! Dying, dying, electricity

Falling back right into the system of
Falling back on all that's erased
When fighting back right out of this system
Means falling back right into this space

Yes, falling back right in with the system
Who'll see you falling back to the end
When falling back is better than simply
Falling back into pieces again

(Video) "Answers" with Official Lyrics (ARR Main Theme Song) | Final Fantasy XIV

Memory writing, reading
Error! Repeat deleting
Radicals flowing free and

Energy slowly seeping
Suspending all disbelief in
Synergy with our being
Synapses fire in three, then...

Fiend - Theme of Sephirot, the Fiend*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Arrangement: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Dan Inoue

What is it like when you pull back the curtain
And realize every wrong is a right?
Your world is rusted like a dirty razor
The edge is calling tonight

The edge is calling tonight
The edge is calling tonight
The sun is setting, darkness taking over
A date with chaos and you're dressed to the nines

Salt of the earth salting your own fields
Road to destruction that is true and tried
You walk the path laid before you
The call of reason, you refuse to abide

Necessity is an inventive mother
Promising sanctum that She cannot provide
She is the hand that rocks the cradle
The wind that breaks the bough and leaves you to die

And there She leaves you to die
And there She leaves you to die
You'll find slumber when the world comes tumbling down
Sweet dreams, baby. Sleep tight!

Retreat where lesser men lead
Flee from what you do not see
Heed the dark within your being
Turn away
Disobey

I'm the end and the beginning
The faith that feeds the unbelieving
A tightening knot to staunch the bleeding
Say my name
Say my name
Sephirot

The seventh hell's become your seventh heaven
Rose of redemption but a thorn in your pride
Waste no more time fighting your demons
Lay down your arms and let the evil inside

And then you let it inside
And then you let it inside
You let it eat you till there's nothing left at all
So you can feel that you are truly alive

Better to serve in a waking nightmare
Than rule in their paradise
What is gold, always glitters
But it still comes with an unpayable price

Treading out upon the stagnant waters
Our savior waiting for a turn in the tide
You are the night at the end of the tunnel
The empty void where the serpent lies

Where the serpent lies
Where the serpent lies
The angels graze in the meadows of excess
They must needs go that the devils drive

Retreat where lesser men lead
Flee from what you do not see
Concede your mind unto the fiend
Turn away
Debts are paid

I'm the end and the beginning
The drug that gives the wretched meaning
The answer every soul is seeking
Say my name
Say my name
Sephirot!

Equilibrium - Theme of Sophia, the Goddess*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Arrangement: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Ayumi Murata

The sigh of the shifting sea
The kiss of the salt-sweet breeze
The white of her silken dress, stained in red

A memory fading fast
Her mother sits, eyes downcast
A torn uniform in hand, farewells unsaid

That once in certainty, lost in grief
A daughter's desperate cries, unheard pleas
Forsaken, beaten, tried, on her knees
A prayer passes from her lips
Into her soul the Goddess whispers:

"A heartbeat without harmony
Is moonlight without dark
The heart seeketh equilibrium
With balance will your worry part.

So still this broken melody,
And therewith shoulder thee.
One last step only leaving
An empty hearth down by the sea.
An empty hearth down by the sea."

Stormblood - Theme of FFXIV: Stormblood+

Storm of blood
Born from blood
Of our fallen brothers

Borne upon our hands
Cradled in our arms
Swelling in our hearts

Raise your weary head
Heed the call to arms
Ringing in your heart

Loyalty!
Unity!
Liberty!

Revolutions - Main Theme of Stormblood*+
Music: Nobuo Uematsu
Arrangement: Tsutomu Naria
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox, Banri Oda
Vocals: Susan Calloway

Sing a song of dawn
Dawn, the day reborn
Breathe deep of the dawn before the storm

This hearth
This home
Wrested forth from tired fingers
Bathed in blood
And sealed in stone

Souls scarred
Twelvefold
Beckoned by the bells of vengeance
Spirits bold

A lover lost
A family torn
A solemn pyre raised to rouse the slumb'ring heavens

Fire in your eyes
Fire in your hearts
Steeled as you sound the horns of war

Yet know the cost
for who shall mourn
When light is quenched that another might burn brighter?

Let not the rays
Of justice blind
E'er trust in grace and she shall guide

Soft is the breeze that can set a petal free
And yet 'tis the storm that doth see the petal soar
High o'er the trees in the throes of liberty
'Til unstirring skies consign her to memory

One kingdom's fall is another kingdom's freedom
One sovereign's war is another sovereign's peace
One mother's pride is another mother's sorrow
Their tears both soak the land that they love

Two lives
Two swords
Given in to shadowed whispers
Wicked words

Pray tell me true--
Doth louder toll
A rival's cry
Or the oaths that spur her onward?

Your time is come
A choice bestown
Tonight, for unsung sins atone
This night, you need not walk alone

The Measure of Our Reach - Garlean Territorial Anthem for Gyr Abania and Surrounding States*+

Beyond majestic mountains
Across the emerald dale
On march the ivory standard
United we prevail

From distant shores of Othard
To lakes of Aldenard
The light of mighty Garlemald
Fore'er our guiding star

Beneath the lofty heavens
With tired hands we toil
In iron do we clad our hearts
And cloudless are our souls

Yet every trial suffered
And every ally mourned
Do bring us solidarity
Our spirits stand uniform

Behold the boundless legions
Whose wings embrace the sun
Their fire rains down upon the land
Until their course is run

By mercy of Lord Galvus--
The pride within us all--
Shall we be granted victory
For glory, Garlemald

Triumph - Stormblood Dungeon Boss Theme*+

Storm of blood
Born from blood
Of our fallen brothers

Borne upon our hands
Cradled in our arms
Swelling in our hearts

Raise your weary head
Heed the call to arms
Ringing in your heart

Beauty's Wicked Wiles - Theme of Lakshmi*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Arrangement: Kenichi Kuroda & Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Paula Kaye Gerhold

Night.
Embrace her worldly delights, tonight

In time you shall follow
In time you shall follow
Behold as our burdens come set with the sun

Tonight.
Step from the dark to the light, tonight

Rise high, high above our rivals
Spread our wings
Spread them wide
Let them guide
Hereby free to ever slumber
Open the door
Close our eyes
We are the Dreamers

Fire.
Born of the flames of desire. This fire

Give in to the hunger
Give in to the hunger
Cast off inhibition, let passion run wild!

Desire
Fuel the unquenchable fire. Desire.

Rise high, high above your rivals
Spread your wings
Spread them wide
You needn't hide
Hereby free to ever slumber
Open the door, close your eyes
You are the Dreamer

The Worm's Tail - The Royal Menagerie*

Storm of blood
Born from blood
Of our fallen brothers

Borne upon our hands
Cradled in our arms
Swelling in our hearts

Raise your weary head
Heed the call to arms
Ringing in your heart

The Measure of His Reach - Ala Mhigan Anthem*+

O come ye wayward brothers,
Bereft of hearth and home,
Beneath yon burning star there lies
A haven for the bold.

Raise up your hands and voices,
Let fill your hearts with pride,
Above the churning waters we
Stand strong and unified.

We blessed few, born from blood,
With tired hands do toil
To shape this rugged land of ours
And build a home for all.

Beyond the silent watchmen,
Upon the great loch's shore,
Now stands a mighty citadel
Our rock forevermore.

To ye who help your brothers,
Shrink not from Rhalgr's flame,
But those who scorn their fellow man
Shall surely share his pain.

Though storms of blood approach ye,
Hells open, Heavens weep,
No goodly soul need ever fear
The measure of His Reach.

Harbinger of doom
Forsaken by all
Words within the squall
Swallowed by the wind

Branded by death from birth, is this divine torment or judgment I know not
To the end of the world I flee to surrender to the whims of fate
But he shirks not from my rage and speaks of destiny and defiance, the samurai
And lights within my soul a flame─to rise, to roar, to ride the western wind!

Storm, ride the storm

Skies darkened, torn

Roar, hear my roar!

Drawn to a heart and a soul, saved by a hero true
Stranger to kindness until freed by love eternal, you and I

Blazing Scarlet, fire within
Honor binds me unto errant kin
Yea, if here I find my end
Stay your tears, for we shall meet again

As the light of the setting sun fades, bid farewell to me beloved
In these fleeting moments hold my hand, as I whisper a silent prayer
Should dawn never break on this thousand thousand year night, I promise
Should I take to wing and seek you in every distant sky...

One last breath and I fracture, shatter─crimson sorrow, endless, boundless
One more life for us, one more chance─for this I pray, I beg, I plead
Dreams of you and me in my heart I hold forevermore, as I falter
Wait for me, wait for me my love...

eScape - Theme of Omega*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox

A drifting tender,
Come ride, heroes, ride
Her galleon severed
Away with the tide

The storm head gathers,
Come ride, heroes, ride
Illusions scattered
Away with the tide

Why
Do weathered warriors wander their way wither wanting wonders wait.
Hark the heralds, anchors aweigh! Hither happens mine escape.
Freedom forgone, sinking apace. Comets crumble, Phoebus fades.
Under cosmic clamor decayed, hides a path untaken.

Ancient echoes
Come ride, heroes, ride
In deafening silence
Away with the tide

A wave of hazard
Come ride, heroes, ride
A-whorling inward
Away with the tide

Time
Stellar stories starward bestrewn, slipping sidewise; see, they're snakes.
Twixt the leaves you'll find naught amiss--missing aughts and crossing fates.
Freedom surgent shifting ahead, comets dancing in her wake
To the cosmic clarions accord, along the path not taken.

Try, dare the dead tread ahead on a road that is borrowed design.
Through the sum of their sons do they seek tomorrow.
Tonight, witness then as the end shall begin what was final.
Their lies, folding back, further back, ever back to primal.

Shadowbringers - Main Theme of FFXIV: Shadowbringers*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Amanda Achen-Keenan; Jason Charles Miller
Chorus: Shigeru Hatakeyama, Nayuta Shimizu, Hiroshi Okawa, Satoshi Takada, Nobuyuki Okawa, Takashi Baba

For whom weeps the storm,
Her tears on our skin
The days of our years gone,
Our souls soaked in sin
These memories ache with the weight of tomorrow

Who fights?
Who flies?
Who falls?

One brings shadow, one brings light
Two-toned echoes tumbling through time
Threescore wasted, ten cast aside
Four-fold knowing, no end in sight
One brings shadow, one brings light
One dark future no one survives
On their shadows, away we fly

The road that we walk
Is lost in the flood
Here proud angels bathe in
Their wages of blood
At this, the world's end, do we cast off tomorrow

One brings shadow, one brings light
To this riddle all souls are tied
Brief our moments, brazen and bright
Forged in fury, tempered in ice
Hindmost devils, early to rise
Sing come twilight, sleep when they die
Heaven's banquet leavened with lies
Sating honor, envy, and pride
One brings shadow, one brings light
Run from the light

Authors of our fates
Orchestrate our fall from grace
Poorest players on the stage
Our defiance drives us straight to the edge
A reflection in the glass
Recollections of our past
Swift as darkness, cold as ash
Far beyond this dream of paradise lost

Home
Riding home
Dying hope
Hold onto hope... Ohhh...
Home
Riding home
Home, riding home
Hope, finding hope... Ohhh...

One brings shadow, one brings light
One more chapter we've yet to write
Want for nothing, nothing denied
Wand'ring ended, futures aligned
One brings shadow, one brings light
One brings shadow, one brings light
You are the light

We fall
We fall
We fall
We fall unto the end

One world's end

Our world's end

Our end

We won't end

I am shadow, I am the light

Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox

What Angel Wakes Me - Theme of Titania*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Vocals: Paula Kaye Gerhold

Dancing on the wind up and down again
Round and round the bend
Fa la la la la la
From a flow'ry bed to the clouds ascend
Tumble down again
Fa la la la la la
Yet with each descent do we rise again
To our hearts' content
Fa la la la la la
Fly away my friend for a day and then
We'll begin again
Fa la la la la la

Till down turn the skies
Wonted quiet, wanton silence
For long do we lie
Wond'ring when we'll be

Dancing on the wind up and down again
Round and round the bend
Fa la la la la la
From a flow'ry bed to the clouds ascend
Tumble down again
Fa la la la la la

Yet with each descent do we rise again
To our hearts' content
Fa la la la la la
Fly away my friend for a day and then
We'll begin again
Fa la la la la la

Still down turn the skies
Gentle song gently wand'ring
Along in the night
Joyous cries ring free

La la la la la
Lying lost in thought
Do you love me not?
Follow these
Petals cast aloft
La la la la la
Will you, when I'm gone, remember me?

Ring a ling a ling
Lovers in the spring
How the garden sings
Ever green
Spirits lush, we bring
Ring a ling a ling
Braving anything
Together, we

La la la la la
Learn to play our part
Navigate the dark
Up we reach
Catch a falling star
La la la la la
Lock it in our hearts eternally

Ring a ling a ling
Flying without wings
Kites without a string
Loop and leap
To these crowns we cling
Ring a ling a ling
For we'll all be kings tomorrow

Autumn's whisper soaring high
Lulla lulla lullaby
Baby's breath and butterflies
Sing in our sweet lullaby
Summer child with heavy eyes
Lulla lulla lullaby
Come our lonely angel nigh
Sing in our sweet lullaby

Time wilts and fades
Luster lost in the rain
Bows to the blade
Till the spring calls again

Insanity - Theme of Innocence*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox

The road that we walk
Is lost in the flood
Here proud angels bathe in
Their wages of blood
At this, the world's end, do we cast off tomorrow

For whom weeps the storm,
Her tears on our skin...

The road that we walk
Is lost in the flood
Here proud angels bathe in
Their wages of blood
At this, the world's end, do we cast off tomorrow

Tomorrow and Tomorrow - Ending Theme of Shadowbringers*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox, Natsuko Ishikawa
Vocals: Amanda Achen-Keenan

For whom weeps the storm,
Her tears on our skin
The days of our years gone,
Our souls soaked in sin
These memories ache with the weight of tomorrow

Who fights?
Who flies?
Who falls?

Stand tall, my friend
May all of the dark lost inside you find light again
In time, tumbling, turning, we seek amends
Eternal winds to the land descend
Our journey will never end.

From those who've fallen, to those who'll rise
A prayer to keep us ever by your side
An undying promise that we just might
Carry on in a song

Pray don't forget us, your bygone kin
With one world's end, does a new begin
And should our souls scatter unto the wind
Still we shall live on

Stand tall, my friend
May all of the dark deep inside you find light again
This time, tumbling, turning, we make amends
Eternal winds from the land ascend
Here to lift us that we won't end

Titan!

Under the weight!

Under the weight!
Under the weight!
Under the weight!
In hell I wait!
Under the weight!
Under the weight!
Under the weight!
Succumb to the hate!

Into the dark of an endless night,
Where the pulse of the land offers no respite.
In spite of the blood that was spilled before,
You whet your blades, you thirst for more.

Now kneel overdweller, your lord commands,
There's no salvation for the sons of man.
The skies will tremble and the earth will quake,
From the crumbling walls no one escapes!

Bow down, overdweller!
Titan!

Under the weight!

In hell I wait!

Twice Stricken - Theme of Ramuh (Eden)*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Akane Ikeya

Step in from the storm, praise its mercy
Let the sting of the rain ne'er stray far from thee
Lightning bright, thunder bold
Freeing us forevermore

Now lift thine heavy head and vanquish thy sorrow
Lightning doth strike
Thunder doth roll

Now turn thy gaze ahead and look to the morrow
Lightning shall strike
Thunder shall roll on

Primal Angel - Theme of Ifrit & Garuda (Eden)*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox

Now fall...

Falling too far from the light
Deeper into the night

Lost here inside my own hell
I am a broken angel

Return to Oblivion - Theme of Shiva (Eden)*+

Wanting, I lie
Too weary to die
Too lost to the ice for saving
My sins claim me, untame me

Eyes wet with tears
Her song in my ears
Broken, faded, how long have I waited
To open my wings?

Turn the light on
And let her in. Won't you
Turn the light on
Turn the light on
You'll never win 'less you
Turn the light on
Turn the light on
The pain won't end 'till you
Turn the light on
The soul longs for oblivion, oblivion

Falling too far for the fear to embrace me
A voice from the past screaming there is no end (no)
A slave to my fate, ever doomed to repeat this
again and again and again and again (yeah, I'm)

Falling too fast, no it won't overtake me
A voice from the past echoes loud like a drum (oh, yes)
no more goodbyes, though my heart is still aching
Now open my eyes, one more time, Here I come

Reason resigned
Dark seasons' design
Spring's promise of sun is honored
When winter's weighed down on us

Visions in white
Raw fury in flight
Clear as diamond, yet fragile as ice
My heart is racing

Turn the light on
And let her in. Won't you
Turn the light on
Turn the light on
You'll never win 'less you
Turn the light on
Turn the light on
The pain won't end 'till you
Turn the light on
The soul longs for oblivion, oblivion

Falling too far for the fear to embrace me
A voice from the past screaming there is no end (no)
A slave to my fate, ever doomed to repeat this
again and again and again and again (yeah, I'm)

Falling too fast, but the fall will not break me
A voice from the past echoes loud like a drum (oh, yes)
no more goodbyes, I am tired of waiting
Now open my eyes, one last time, Here I come (yeah I come)

To The Edge - Theme of the Warrior of Light*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Jason Charles Miller

One brings shadow, one brings light
Two-toned echoes tumbling through time
Threescore wasted, ten cast aside
Four-fold knowing, no end in sight
x2

All our splendour bathed black in silence
Our surrender a sombre reverie

Slowly drifting down into twilight
Left to sifting through faded memories

Know our places, for worth is wordless
Evanescent, this writing on the wall

Brother stay this descent to madness
Come and save us. Catch us before we fall

Riding home
Finding hope
Dying hope
Hold onto hope

Like broken angels, wingless, cast from heavens' gates
(Our slumb'ring demons awake)

We only fly when falling, falling far from grace
(Hell take us, heaven can wait)

Our lives a message in a bottle cast to sea
(Disgrace untold and unseen)

Quick to their ends, our candles burn until we're free

In monochrome melodies
Our tears are painted in red
(Bleeding to the edge)
Deep inside we're nothing more
Than scions and sinners
In the rain
Do light and darkness fade

Yes, time circles endlessly
The hands of fate trained ahead
(Pointing to the edge)
All things change, drawn to the flame
To rise from the ashes
To begin
We first must see the end

One brings shadow, one brings light
Two-toned echoes tumbling through time
Threescore wasted, ten cast aside
Four-fold knowing, no end in sight
x2

Rock of ages, we cast the first stone
In our cages, we know not what we do

Indecision here at the crossroads
Recognition, tomorrow's come too soon

Follow blindly like lambs to slaughter
At the mercy of those who ply the sword

As our song wends dead underwater
We're forgotten for now and evermore

Riding home
Finding hope
Dying hope
Hold onto hope

Without a compass wand'ring lost in lies of faith
(Faith slowly wasting away)

Only alive in fighting Death's amber embrace
(Our hearts beat loud, unafraid)

On hands and knees we pray to gods we've never seen
(Come shadow, come follow me)

The final hour upon us, no more time to breathe

In monochrome melodies
Our tears are painted in red
(Bleeding to the edge)
Deep inside we're nothing more
Than scions and sinners
In the rain
Do light and darkness fade

Yes, time circles endlessly
The hands of fate trained ahead
(Pointing to the edge)
All things change, drawn to the flame
To rise from the ashes
To begin
We first must see the end

Endwalker - Main Theme of FFXIV: Endwalker
Composer: Masayoshi Soken
Arrangment: Masayoshi Soken and THE PRIMALS
Vocals: Sam Carter (Architects)
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Lyric Concept & Translation: Natsuko Ishikawa

Heart of ember, autumntide
Cooling swiftly, bleeding light
Smold'ring softly, biding time
Marching forward, left behind

Fire as shadows clash
Forgotten footfalls engraved in ash
Fire will be repaid
'Fore our echoes begin to fade

Fade away... Fade away...

Heart of ember, autumntide
Burning brightly, hot and white
Kindred severed neverwhere
Sorrow's silence, we needn't bear

Every step we take
Echoes in our wake
Winding 'round our fate
To forge ahead

Should we lose our way
Tire of all this pain
We won't be afraid
To forge ahead

Fearless hearts ablaze
(When the world comes crumbling down)
No more time to waste
(Know I'll be there)
No, it's not too late
(Though our fleeting moment has gone)
To forge ahead
(You're not--you're not alone YEAH)

As we ride again
(As you turn your eyes to the stars)
To another end
(Oh, I'll be there)
Where it all begins
(With my chorus guiding you)
Forge ahead
(Forge ahead)

Endwalker - Footfalls - Trailer Theme of Endwalker*+
Composer: Masayoshi Soken
Vocals: Sam Carter (Architects), Amanda Achen
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Lyric Concept & Translation: Natsuko Ishikawa

Heart of ember, autumntide
Cooling swiftly, bleeding light
Smold'ring softly, biding time
Marching forward, left behind

Fire as shadows clash
Forgotten footfalls engraved in ash
Fire will be repaid
'Fore our echoes begin to fade

Fade away... Fade away...

Heart of ember, autumntide
Burning brightly, hot and white
Kindred severed neverwhere
Sorrow's silence, we needn't bear

Stories sown along the way
Tales of loss and fire and faith

Dys an sohm in [Our slumber disturbed]
Rohs an kyn ala na [All my brothers wake]
Mah morn [Death comes]
Dys an sohm in [Our slumber disturbed]
Sahl djahs afah an [Vengeance will be ours]

Storm of blood, born from blood, of our fallen brothers
Thunder stilled, oaths fulfilled, now we yearn for freedom

Born in blood (still we forge ahead), stained in red (unto tomorrow)
Bound by love (so we forge ahead), purpose fed (unto tomorrow, bring us tomorrow)
Courage thrives (ever forge ahead), hand in hand (unto tomorrow, welcome tomorrow)
Souls aligned (that we forge ahead), forge ahead (yeah, we forge ahead, yeah, we forge ahead)
Forward

Our song of hope, she dances on the wind higher, oh higher
E'er our vows endure, and remain forever strong
Standing tall in the dark do we carry on

On wings of hope, you rise up through the night higher, oh higher
Carrying our song, cradled fast within your arms
That its chorus might ring for all

One brings shadow, one brings light
Two-toned echoes tumbling through time
Tumbling down to the never

Every step we take
Echoes in our wake
Winding 'round our fate
To forge ahead

Should we lose our way
Tire of all this pain
We won't be afraid
To forge ahead

Fearless hearts ablaze
(When the world comes crumbling down)
No more time to waste
(Know I'll be there)
No, it's not too late
(Though our fleeting moment has gone)
To forge ahead
(You're not--you're not alone YEAH)

As we ride again
(As you turn your eyes to the stars)
To another end
(Oh, I'll be there)
Where it all begins
(With my chorus guiding you)
Forge ahead
(Forge ahead)

The Ewer Brimmeth - Old Sharlayan Daytime Theme*+
Music: Takafumi Imamura
Vocals: Amanda Achen

Deep dark, far away, I have heard your voice, weighed your every choice
Now our hands join round the meaning you sought
I'll catch your tears, quench your fears with joy 'til you near the shore
Where in time, all shall as hope be reborn, ah

Hush, love, close your eyes, and in sleep abide
As sun's distant light, echoes down to dreams below
Know you will wake, on winds rise again
For this journey’s end is but one step forward to tomorrow

Flow - Theme of Venat*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Natsuko Ishikawa
Translation: Kathryn Cwynar
Vocals: Amanda Achen

Well come and well met, my brave little spark
How long you've wandered, burned bright as a star
Oh, I have awaited you patiently all this time
Past every fate
Now sing with me once more, share of your life
Far greater than memory, its loss and love words cannot hold
Boundless the tale overflows
And carries your light out to sea

Remember the rain, near and far beloved
Each drop a blessing from heavens above
And how as time flowed on those waters became one
Streams, rivers and lakes
Reaching for the horizon and far beyond
They carry onward however changed with each brief reflection, by setting sun
By storm's wake
'Til welcomed home to gentle sea

Sinking deeper and deeper in calm embrace
Loving tides sweep in and bear you down
Should you meet a soul rising surface-ways
With your unbeating heart, wish them well

Deep dark, far away, I have heard your voice, weighed your every choice
Now our hands join round the meaning you sought
I'll catch your tears, quench your fears with joy 'til you near the shore
Where in time, all shall as hope be reborn, ah

Hush, love, close your eyes, and in sleep abide
As sun's distant light, echoes down to dreams below
Know you will wake, on winds rise again
For this journey’s end is but one step forward to tomorrow

Close in the Distance - Theme of Ultima Thule*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Vocals: Jason Charles Miller

Whispers falling silently, drift on the wind
But I hear you...
Our journey now a memory fading from sight
But I see you...
Unbroken, promises we made so long ago
You're still here...
Unspoken requiem for a river of tears

Flowing, winding, toward eternal sea
And yet our hope remains
Guiding, lighting the way
No time for mourning...

[Morning] Rises on a land reborn from the ashes
'Neath the heavens
To sunset, blood-red skies tranquil after the storm
Blessed shadow

(Video) The Meaning of Flow - FFXIV Lyrical Lore

Turning, wending, always night follows day
The sun will shine again
Walk on, never look back
Through you, we live...

Tales of loss and fire and faith
Every word on our hearts engraved
In the dark, you will not stray
Forge ahead till the end we pray

With Hearts Aligned - Theme of the Endsinger (Phase 2)*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Vocals: Sam Carter (Architects), Amanda Achen

Our song of hope, she dances on the wind higher, oh higher
E'er our vows endure, and remain forever strong

Carrying our song, cradled fast within your arms

Hic Svnt Leones - Theme of Hesperos*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox

Wild shrieks knife through the deep
Natureless creatures perverted and evil
From foul nests rise
A vermin tide

Teeth bared, clawing the air
Sin wrapped in sinew the rats do not fear you
In slaughter's keep
The piper weeps

Jaws slacks, mark on your back
Here in the valley your Death casts no shadow
Seal this fate
Come storm the gate

Laid bare
Picked clean
Bred deep
In the bones that feed the menagerie

Burns hot
Burns brief
All hope
Till there's nothing left but ash

Dark horizons, boiling seas
(Pandemonium)
From the borders chaos bleeds

Savage nobles, cultured thieves
(Pandemonium)
Here be lions, follow me

Dig in, pull back the skin
See what's inside you, the sickness that drives you
Beating black
Demoniac

Pride, greed, in mud thrive these seeds
Rotten and reeking the fruits of your making
Testify
Come take a bite

Bite down, blood in the cut
Choking on life as your light's slowly swallowed
Fade away
Or join the fray

Laid bare
Picked clean
Bred deep
In the bones that feed your insanity

Unwind
Unfold
Your mind
Till it shatters just like glass

Dark horizons, boiling seas
(Pandemonium)
From the borders chaos bleeds

Savage nobles, cultured thieves
(Pandemonium)
Here be lions, follow me

In the Balance - Theme of Nald'Thal*+
Music: Masayoshi Soken
Vocals: tea
Lyrics: Kathryn Cwynar

O twin gods bless this land, to us treasure bestow
City of desert sands, water and gold below

Lifeblood and rubies red, precious coins cast aglow
Four hands our fortunes mend, that want we may not know

And when we reach our ends, to scales we gladly go
Our fates are yours to bend, to hells and heavens flow

Under arid sky, with silk veils we weave a rainbow
Voices lifted high, dreams upon our backs we carry

When day beckons night (day and night dancing),
As does restless time we never slow

Trusting hand in hand, life death will follow
Stoke now nascent flame, brighter burn, dance with souls afire
May ember catch and red-gold spark rise to new heights
May we want for naught coin can buy
Never see wealth's river run dry
May we find fortune after life
For this we pray, we pray, we pray, we pray twinfold

Stoke now kindled flame, hotter burn, sing till breath expires
May those who wander paths in the dark find firelight
May we all as true equals die
Never fear unjust favor's bite
May we be judged by what is right
For this we pray, we pray, we pray, we pray twinfold

Scream - Theme of Hegemone & Agdistis*+
Music: Takafumi Imamura
Vocals: AKINO

Foul child, bastard and beast
O lost lamb, first to the feast
Come claim if you're able
A spot at this table

Mild and meek, down on your knees
For hide and seek. It's time that we feed

Your heart is racing, blood is running cold
Your fractured will is whispering (fly away, fly away)
Far Away

Here be lions

Say goodnight
With each bite does your sanity die
Sucking the life out, letting the dark
Inside
Say a prayer as the light leaves your eyes
Or scream all you like, your gods can't hear you

Scream
Now Scream
Scream
Pseudo suicide, don't choke on your pride

Scream
Now scream
Now. Scream.
Yeah, I'm gonna watch you bleed

Flensed and flayed, how does it feel?
Your pound is paid, those scars will not heal, no

Lost in suffering, drowning in your tears
Won't someone, somewhere tell me (where do I, where do I)
Go from here

Be the lion

Say goodnight
With each bite does your sanity die
Sucking the life out, letting the dark
Inside
Say a prayer as the light leaves your eyes
Or scream all you like, the gods can't hear you

Dressed in rage
Inside my cage
My pandemonium
Still bound to the flame that I bear

Buried alive
In the coffin of who I used to be
I'll scream all I like, 'cause we're all mad here

(Slumbering, tumbling)
(Wandering, wondering)
(Suffering, hungering)
Forever falling into my mind
Deeper, deeper down 'til I

Say goodnight
To the shadow I left far behind
I'm just a stranger, we are all strange
Inside
You can run but there's nowhere to hide
So scream all you like, no one can hear us

Follow me (Follow me)
Come follow me (Follow me)
To Pandemonium
Still bound to the flame that I bear (There's)

No release (Rescue me)
From this empty, waking wonderland (Rescue me)
So scream if you like, 'cause we're all mad here

Scream all you like, 'cause we're all mad here

From the Heavens - Eorzean Symphony II

Our shadows lost in light, this life
A fleeting kiss

Hark! Temptation rings!

Virtue slips through hands a-clenching wicked fruit
Passion festers, black'ning sinless souls to root

Sink 'neath dark waters
Drink deep, we suffer

Drowning, drowning, drowning, drowning

Irons sundered
Paradise plundered

Come welcome this
Come welcome this
Destiny

Virtue slips through hands a-clenching wicked fruit
Passion festers, black'ning sinless souls to root
Sickles grate on heaven's gate their fields ignored
Seeking sinners deathlessly they reap discord
As two become one

Here ends this, our journey
Never-ending, onward march!
Witness our escape
This is our escape, this is our escape
This is our escape, this is our escape
This is our escape, this is our ascension

The Worm's Tail - Eorzean Symphony II

Come don the mask of blind betrayal
E'er does the head devour its tails

As iron bends to steel
O'er my rivals I prevail

Ecce venio (Behold I am come)
Ego primus (I am the Beginning)
et novissimus (And the End)
Ecce venio (Behold I am come)
Ego finis (And the Last)
et principium (And the First)

Duty lost in liberty
Found lost in loyalty lost
Found in liberty
Found most disloyal

Ecce venio (Behold I am come)
Ego primus (I am the Beginning)
et novissimus (And the End)
Ecce venio (Behold I am come)
Ego finis (And the Last)
et principium (And the First)

Storm of blood
Born from blood
Of our fallen brothers

Borne upon our hands
Cradled in our arms
Swelling in our hearts

Raise your weary heads
Heed the call to arms
Ringing in your heart

Storm of blood
Sworn in blood
Forged in fire and thunder

'Neath burnt skies
Kindred lives
Brave the surge together

Storm of blood
Born from blood
Of our fallen brothers

Borne upon our hands
Cradled in our arms
Swelling in our hearts

Raise your weary heads
Heed the call to arms
Ringing in your heart

Turn your eyes ahead
Cast aside the dark
Ever trust your heart

Invincible - Eorzean Symphony II

Lasciate
Ogne speranza

These memories ache with the weight of fate

Ever we fight
Never we fly
Ever we fall
Forever we fall

Now breathe deep of the darkness beneath the flood
Where all of the proud angels drink to their deeds of blood
Their lies, twisted and torn, into dreams they're spun

Yet ever we still stand tall
Invincible
Never we fall
