""DISSIDIA -opening-" from DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY"

"DISSIDIA" is the leitmotif of Dissidia Final Fantasy, Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy, and Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. It was composed by Takeharu Ishimoto, and it debuted as the theme for the Dissidia Final Fantasy teaser trailer in 2007, the full theme being present in the Jump Fiesta.

"Massive Explosion" lyrics[]

The lyrics were written by Chris Ito. The official lyrics were released on Dissidia Final Fantasy -Arcade- Original Soundtrack and Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Original Soundtrack.

English
Unbroken silence
In jewel of an island
Chasing the light & found a big shadow
Standing in the darkness
Bear my loneliness
Light and shadow stare me for eternity
I'm dreaming over time
clearly to understand a calling given by the everlasting
I can't stop the urge to destroy
It infects like a rising flames
Brainwashed strange world in reality
I can't take anymore
Burning anger
I wanna be stronger
The other side of truth you need know
Deep inside me
This is my story
Give me the power to receive everything
I just can't get your face out of my head
Perfect landscape with full of love....Neverlasting
Massive explosion
Cry of sorrow
I can't stop the urge to destroy
It infects like a rising flames
Brainwashed strange world in reality
I can't take anymore
We lose track of the preciousness of our life like a shot
Fall into the slough of ruin
But I can change my future
Japanese translation
果てしない沈黙
宝石のように輝く島で
光を追いかけて
大きな影を見つけた
暗闇の中で立ち尽くし孤独に耐える
光と影は未来永劫私を見つめつづける
長い時間をかけて夢見ている
神に与えられた使命を確信することを
止められない破壊衝動
それは燃え広がる炎のように感染する
洗脳されたおかしな世界という現実
もう我慢の限界だ
燃え盛る怒り
強くなりたい
真実の向こう側を知らなければならない
私の奥深く
これは私の物語
全てを受け入れる力を与えて
君の顔が頭から離れない
愛に溢れた完璧な風景、、、永遠には続かない
圧倒的な破壊衝動
哀しみの叫び
止められない破壊衝動
それは燃え広がる炎のように感染する
洗脳されたおかしな世界という現実
もう我慢の限界だ
私たちは放たれる弾丸のスピードのように人生の尊さをすぐに見失ってしまう
破滅の淵に沈んでゆく
それでも未来は変えられる
