D012FF - Cantata Mortis & God In Fire
Trouble with the audio sample?

"Cantata Mortis & God in Fire" (死の唄&火中の神, Shi no Uta & Katyu no Kami?) is a theme attributed to the Chaos of Scenario 000, depicting the madness he has suffered by the hands of the war with Cosmos and Shinryu's constant cycle of rebirth , the God of Discord, in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy Original Soundtrack. "Cantata Mortis", is a section of Latin chanting before transitioning into "God in Fire", itself performed by the Kidneythieves and is written by Tyrone Prince. After "God in Fire" ends, it loops back to Cantata Mortis.

"Cantata Mortis & God in Fire" plays during the battle against Feral Chaos in Scenario 000, both during the manikin version at Southern Lufenia Gateway and the true version at the Edge of Discord. It also plays during the unwinnable tutorial battle against Feral Chaos that occurs if the player chooses "I am a master!" to the moogle's final question. After defeating the real Feral Chaos, this song may be selected by the player during random battles.

"Cantata Mortis" LyricsEdit

LatinEdit

Lux! Umbra!
Vita! Mors!
Concordia! Chaos!
Chaos, Deus Mortis.
Spiritus illius producit Mortem.
Chaos, Deus Exitii.
Tenebrae illius devorant omnia.
In palma Creatoris,
Proelium aeternum prodit.
Creare rem Ultimam!
Deletrix Omnium!
O, Chaos!
Progenies Belli!
Corpus incensum tuum fluctuat
In mari inanitatis.
Scitote finem Vestrum fieri
In prece sola mortuorum.
Lux! Umbra!
Vita! Mors!
Concordia! Chaos!
(Repetitio x7)
Lux! Umbra!
Vita! Mors!
Concordia! Chaos!
Mors! O, Mors!
Delete! Delete!
O, Chaos, Deus Exitii!
Devastate! Devastate!
Chaos, Deus Mortis!
O, Chaos!

English translationEdit

Light! Shadow!
Life! Death!
Harmony! Chaos!
Chaos, God of Death.
His spirit brings Death.
Chaos, God of Ruin.
His darkness devours all.
In the Creator's palm,
Eternal strife springs up.
To create the final thing!
The destroyer of all!
O, Chaos!
Spawn of war!
Your fiery body surges
In the sea of emptiness.
Know that your end will come,
In a lonely prayer for the dead.
Light! Shadow!
Life! Death!
Harmony! Chaos!
(Repeat x7)
Light! Shadow!
Life! Death!
Harmony! Chaos!
Death O, Death!
Destroy! Destroy!
O, Chaos, God of Ruin!
Lay to waste! Lay to waste!
Chaos, God of Death!
O, Chaos!


"God in Fire" LyricsEdit

Gone in a second
Ultimate destruction
Gods are warring
Sorrow never-ending
Endless chaos
For an eternity
Welcome to the abyss
Backwater town where nothing happens
Don't let disguises fool you
Evil is coming from everywhere
Destroying all that we believe is good
My mother's ghost still haunts me now
Fortune abandoned by God
Nothing can bring her back to me
Now I will seek to rage heaven's doors
There is no mercy, compassion in the world
Embrace the chaos
For in the end that is All
Now the universe is broken, lost its force
Turn your back on all you have loved
For it is
Gone in a second
Ultimate destruction
Gods are warring
Sorrow never-ending
Endless chaos
For an eternity
Welcome to the abyss
Creation desperate
Waiting for a
Miracle to transcend all war
Watch how the bloodlust of the divine
Throw out its hatred for all time
There is no mercy, compassion in the world
Embrace the chaos
For in the end that is All
Now the universe is broken, lost its force
Turn your back on all you have loved
For it is
Gone in a second
Ultimate destruction
Gods are warring
Sorrow never-ending
Endless chaos
For an eternity
Welcome to the end, to the abyss
End as beginning
And so it will be
Alpha Omega
The end that you see
{Gone in a second}
{Gods are warring}
Gone in a second
Ultimate destruction
Gods are warring
Sorrow never-ending
Endless chaos
For an eternity
Welcome to the end, to the abyss
