Lyrics[]

The Latin translation and the original Japanese of the lyrics were officially released on the soundtrack in the following format.

Latin
Habitavit
Dormivit
Caelo missus rex
Poena terrae motus
Error humanus
Cujus fructus foris
Cujus verbum clavis
Calamitas excitata ab imo
Cum haustus est fremitu
Cum levatus est carmine
Fatum invitans ruina sive paradisus
Preces
Clamorque
Pauci resistentes
Sola Dea fatum novit
Original Japanese
宿りしは
眠りしは
天来の王
強震の罰
人がもたらしたる業
その結晶は扉
その言葉は鍵
開かれし奥に目覚めた災厄
咆哮に飲まれし時
呪縛から解き放たれし時
招きし定めは滅亡か楽園か
祈りと
叫びと
わずかにそれに立ち向かう者達
命運は女神のみぞ知る
Unofficial English translation
He lived,
He slept.
The king sent by the sky.
His punishment is like an earthquake.
A mistake humans made,
Whose pleasure is the door,
And whose voice is the key.
Disaster is sparked by him.
As he is surrounded by roaring,
As he is summoned by chants,
So he himself can call upon ruinous fate and paradise alike.
Prayers,
And screams.
Few are able to resist.
A sole goddess could see destiny.
