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 by Nobuo Uematsu, arranged by The Black Mages' rhythm guitarist Michio Okamiya, with lyrics by Takuya Sugimoto and performed by Bill Muir. It plays during the opening FMV and a looped version plays during the battle against Braska's Final Aeon.

LyricsEdit

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, into the sand, and the dust, and the sky
Go now, there's no better plan than to do or to die
Free me, pray to the fayth, in the face of the light
Feed me, fill me with sin, and 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
BRACE
