Lyrics[edit]

The final line of the English lyrics only plays on the soundtrack, never in game, as the in-game music loops over the penultimate line. The piece also has official Japanese lyrics according to the booklet of the Xenoblade Chronicles Original Soundtrack Trinity Box, as follows. Curiously, and uniquely to this track among the booklet's Japanese lyrics, these are significantly different in meaning from the English lyrics used in the song.

English lyrics[edit]

Shadows of the lowland leading to the cold and darkened days
Without any hope, without a light for long
Will this suffering ever come to an end one day...?

Even so, pride keeps us strong today, glory will be with us
Now the time has come to fight and seize the day
When will our prayers be heard high up in the sky above?
Soon fate will show us the place where we belong

Suddenly, a gleam of dawn
Can you feel the power of faith?
Our native land, here we stand as one

Shadows of the lowland leading to the cold and darkened days
Our path...

Japanese lyrics[edit]

ルクスリア 光の民
雲海の底へと 身をひそめ
幾星霜の年月を 耐え忍び
光無き空を 仰ぐ民たちよ
さあ 光射す大空へ

ルクスリア 光の民
誉れ高き 曙光の英雄
その血を引きし 民たちよ
今日 その時が来た
さあ 光射す大空へ

Literal translation[edit]

Tantal, People of Light
Hiding at the Bottom of the Cloud Sea
Enduring for Many Months and Years
Peoples Looking Up at the Lightless Sky
Now, Towards the Light-Shining Heavens

Tantal, People of Light
Renowned Hero(es) of Dawn
Peoples Descended from That Blood
Today, That Time has Come
Now, Towards the Light-Shining Heavens

雪に囲まれた神秘的な街ルクスリア王国で流れるこの曲は、最初から声のみで勝負したいと思っていました。20年も前からいつか一緒に作品を作ってみたいと思っていたアイルランドのコーラスグループ「ANÚNA」と奇跡的な出会いがあり、もうこれはANÚNA以外考えられないと思いました。僕の中に染み付いたANÚNAのサウンドがメロディを湧き出たせ、一気に曲を書き上げることができました。
