Lyrics[]

Go now, if you want it
An otherworld awaits you
Don't you give up on it
You bite the hand that feeds you
All alone, cold fields you wander
Memories of it, cloud your sight
Fills your dreams, disturbs your slumber
Lost your way, a fallen knight
Hold now, aim is steady
An otherworld awaits you
One thousand years, you ready?
The otherworld, it takes you
Go, into the sand, and the dust, and the sky
Go now, there's no better plan than to do or to die
Free me, pray to the fayth, in the face of the light
Feed me, fill me with sin, and get ready to fight
You know you will...
You know you will...
You know, you know, you know, you know, that you will...
You know, you know, you know, you know, that you will...
You know you will...
Fight, fight, fight
Fight, fight, FIGHT!
Fight, fight, fight
Fight, fight, FIGHT!
Hope dies, and you wander
The otherworld, it makes you
Dreams, they rip asunder
The otherworld, it hates you
Free now, ride up on it
Up to the heights, it takes you
Go now, if you want it
An otherworld awaits you

Trivia[]

  • At the end of the original version, Muir is heard screaming "Straight edge! Till I die! Lost Cause!", a reference to his subculture, his band, and his last recorded album with it. This is followed by a repeated scream of "Blitz, Blitz, Blitz, let's Blitz!" as the song fades out, referring to Blitzball.
  • A common misconception is that the German band Rammstein is the performer of this song.
