"Fallen Angel" (堕天せし者, Daten seshi Mono?) is the boss theme of the primal Garuda from Final Fantasy XIV. It was composed by Masayoshi Soken with lyrics by Michael-Christopher Koji Fox and vocals by Fukiko Sekine.

It opens with an organ section accompanied by a haunting chorus, and becomes increasingly faster until it suddenly stops, a female voice says "Now fall...", and a heavy guitar starts playing for a few seconds, giving way to a softer riff as the proper song begins, combining the initial chorus with faint lyrics that can be heard on the background.

Lyrics[]

English
Now fall...
Falling too far from the light
Deeper into the night
Lost here inside my own hell
I am a broken angel
Japanese translation
堕ちなさい
光から遠く
闇の奥深くへ
己の地獄を彷徨う
わたしは、壊れた天使......

Etymology[]

A fallen angel is a wicked or rebellious angel that has been cast out of heaven. The term "fallen angel" does not appear in the Bible under that exact term (with the closest instance of it appearing under that term being Nephilim, which translates to "Fallen" in Hebrew), but it is used of angels who sinned (such as those referred to in 2 Peter 2:4, "For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment ..."), of angels cast down to the earth in the War in Heaven, of Satan, demons, or of certain Watchers. The term has become popular in fictional literature regarding angels.
