Lyrics for Final Fantasy XIV’s The Worm’s Tail

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 “The Worm’s Tail” which is the music that plays when you fight Shinryu at the end of Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood’s main scenario.

Come don the mask of blind betrayal
E’er does the head devour its tail

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 (I am 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 (I am 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 head
Heed the call to arms
Ringing in your heart

Storm of blood
Sworn in blood
Forged in fire and thunder

‘Neat 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 head
Heed the call to arms
Ringing in your heart

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