Lyrics for Final Fantasy XIV’s From the Heavens

Today, the Eorzean Symphony Final Fantasy XIV Orchestral Album Vol. 2 Blu-ray was released in Japan. Within the pages of its booklet we were given the lyrics to “From the Heavens” which is the music that plays when you fight Omega at the end of Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood’s 8-man raid.

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 our escape, this our escape
This our escape, this our escape
This our escape, this our ascension
