"Under the Weight" (過重圧殺!~蛮神タイタン討滅戦~, Kajū Assatsu! ~Banshin Taitan Tōmetsusen~?, lit. Crushing Weight! ~Savage God Titan Showdown~) is a boss theme in Final Fantasy XIV for the primal Titan.

It was composed by Masayoshi Soken, with the lyrics written by Michael-Christopher Koji Fox and the chorus provided by the Tidus Seven.

Game appearances[]

Final Fantasy XIV[]

This song is the fifth and final track that plays during the fights against Titan, following "Weight of a Whisper", "Weight of His Will", "Weight of the World", and "Heartless". This track plays once the final phase begins after he uses his signature attack Earthen Fury. Befitting the Lord of Crags, the song is a heavy metal composition.

It is the 67th track in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Original Soundtrack.

The Primals' rendition plays during the Titan phase of The Weapon's Refrain (Ultimate) The Weapon's Refrain (Ultimate) and the final phase of Eden's Gate: Sepulture (Savage) Eden's Gate: Sepulture (Savage)

The lyrics are meant to depict Titan's utter hatred and contempt for the Hyur, Elezen, Lalafell, Roegadyn, and Miqo'te of Eorzea.

Bow down overdweller!!

Bow down overdweller!!
Bow down overdweller!!
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (in hell I wait)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Wrought from the rock that stands upon old
With heart of black and a stare that's cold
Cold are the hands that grasp at your soul
'Fore the graves are dug and the death knells toll.
Tempered in the flows of the mountain's core
Where the rage runs red twixt shore and shore
Shorn from the world 'neath the blazing sun
Bound to the dark, for the light I shun
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (in hell I wait)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Succumb to the hate that corrupts your fate
Into the dark of an endless night
Where the pulse of the land offers no respite
In spite of the blood that was spilled before
You whet your blades, you thirst for more
Now kneel overdweller, your lord commands
There's no salvation for the sons of man
The skies will tremble and the earth will quake
From the crumbling walls no one escapes
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (in hell I wait)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
Bow down overdweller (under the weight)
I'll drag you right down to the seventh gate
