Eorzean Symphony version[]

English
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
Japanese translation
我らが影は、光の中に消えた
この生涯は、儚い口づけの知し
聞け! 誘惑の鐘の音を!
悪徳の果実を掴む手より、美徳が滑り落ちる
情熱が腐敗し、罪なき魂さえ芯まで黒く染まる
暗き水底に沈みて
肺は水に満ち、我らは苦しまん
溺れて、溺れて、溺れて、溺れて
手枷は断たれた
楽園は略奪された


歓迎せよ
歓迎せよ
この運命を
悪徳の果実を掴む手より、美徳が滑り落ちる
情熱が腐敗し、罪なき魂さえ芯まで黒く染まる
死神の鎌は天の門を損ない、庭地は忘れ去られ、
絶えず咎人を探し続け、不和を刈り取る
二人が一人となりて
この地は、我らが旅の終着なり
然れとも終わることなく、前へと進め!
見よ、我らが離脱を
我らが離脱を、我らが離脱を
我らが離脱を、我らが離脱を
我らが離脱を、我らが昇天を

Etymology[]

Heaven is a common religious, cosmological, or transcendent place where heavenly beings such as gods, angels, jinn, saints, or venerated ancestors are said to originate, be enthroned, or to live.
