FFXIII - Born Anew
Trouble with the audio sample?
Yet, if we but summon the Maker, we will be granted the chance to begin again. All our sins, absolved - and the world, born anew!
—Orphan

Born Anew (降誕, Kōtan?, lit. Birth) is the first part of the final boss theme in Final Fantasy XIII. The song plays as Orphan rises from its slumber, assimilated with Barthandelus to form a sword-like fal'Cie. It is notably a remix of Galenth Dysley's theme.

The most important part of the song is the tenor solo part at the end. I forget what kind of inspiration helped me to make this music, but I remember making this part and thinking, 'I haven't heard anything similar!'

LyricsEdit

LatinEdit

Mihi nomen Orphanus Orphanus
Vigilans Aeternum exitum cupio (2x)
Mihi nomen Orphanus Orphanus (2x)
Diem gemitus lacrimamque divae matris (3x)
Quae spes mihi sunt
Vigilans Aeternum exitum cupio (2x)
Mihi nomen Orphanus Orphanus (2x)
Diem gemitus lacrimamque divae matris (3x)
Quae spes mihi sunt
L'Cie, pandere foris promisisti plenas lucis perpetuae

EnglishEdit

My name is Orphan. Orphan.
Forever watchful, I yearn for destruction (2x)
My name is Orphan. Orphan. (2x)
The day of suffering and the mother goddess's tears (3x)
Are what my hope is.
Forever watchful, I yearn for destruction (2x)
My name is Orphan. Orphan. (2x)
The day of suffering and the mother goddess's tears (3x)
Are what my hope is.
L'Cie, you promised to open the gate, full of eternal light!
