Final Fantasy Wiki

The heavy metal song that begins FFX and ends Tidus's greatest battle. Its growling vocals and wild guitar would whip up a fighting spirit in anyone!

"Otherworld" is a song from Final Fantasy X. It was composed and arranged by Nobuo Uematsu, with lyrics written by Alexander O. Smith and performed by Bill Muir. It plays during the opening FMV and a looped version plays during the battle against Braska's Final Aeon.


The official lyrics were released on Final Fantasy X: Original Soundtrack and Final Fantasy X HD Remaster Original Soundtrack.

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 go into the sand and the dust and the sky
Go now no better plan than to do or to die
Free me pray to the faith in the face of the light
Feed me fill me with sin now 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
Japanese translation
望むなら、今行くんだ 別世界が待っている
あきらめるんじゃない! 飼主の手を噛んで
くじけるな 狙いを定めて 別世界が待っている
千年だぞ、準備できているかい? 別世界が奪い取る
行け 行け 砂へ、塵へ、空へ
今行くんだ やるか死ぬか、それしかない
放せ 光の前で信仰に祈りをあげよ
エサをくれ 俺を罪(シン)でいっぱいにさせて、闘いの準備せよ
やるだろう? (×5)
闘え 闘え 闘え (×4)
希望が死んで、迷う 別世界がおまえをそうさせる
夢は破けてなくなる 別世界はおまえを憎んでいる
自由になって乗って行けよ 絶頂まで行ける
望むなら今行くんだ 別世界が待っている
