    "Answers" Answered!

    To commemorate the release of the End of an Era trailer, we'd like to (finally!) post the official lyrics to Answers.

    As many of you already know, the version used in the trailer is actually significantly shorter than the original. The lyrics below are for the full version, with the 'cut' lyrics highlighted in red.

    Music: Nobuo Uematsu
    Lyrics: Yaeko Sato & Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
    Vocals: Susan Calloway


    I close my eyes, tell us why must we suffer
    Release your hands, for your will drags us under
    My legs grow tired, tell us where must we wander
    How can we carry on if redemption's beyond us?

    To all of my children in whom Life flows abundant
    To all of my children to whom Death hath passed his judgement
    The soul yearns for honor, and the flesh the hereafter
    Look to those who walked before to lead those who walk after

    Shining is the Land's light of justice
    Ever flows the Land's well of purpose
    Walk free, walk free, walk free, believe...
    The Land is alive, so believe...

    Suffer (Feel) Promise (Think) Witness (Teach) Reason
    (Hear) Follow (Feel) Wander (Think) Stumble (Teach) Listen
    (Speak) Honor (Speak) Value (Tell) Whisper (Tell) Mention
    (Hope) Ponder (Hope) Warrant (Wish) Cherish (Wish) Welcome
    (Roam) Witness (Roam) Listen (Roam) Suffer (Roam) Sanction
    (Sleep)
    Weather (Sleep) Wander (Sleep) Answer
    Sleep on

    Now open your eyes while our plight is repeated
    Still deaf to our cries, lost in hope we lie defeated
    Our souls have been torn, and our bodies forsaken
    Bearing sins of the past, for our future is taken

    War born of strife, these trials persuade us not
    (Feel what? Learn what?)
    Words without sound, these lies betray our thoughts
    (See what? Hear what?)

    Mired by a plague of doubt, the Land, she mourns
    Judgement binds all we hold to a memory of scorn
    Tell us why, given Life, we are meant to die, helpless in our cries?

    Witness (Feel) Suffer (Think) Borrow (Teach) Reason
    (Hear) Follow (Feel) Stumble (Think) Wander (Teach) Listen
    (Blink) Whisper (Blink) Shoulder (Blink) Ponder (Blink) Weather
    (Hear) Answer (Look) Answer (Think) Answer together

    Thy Life is a riddle, to bear rapture and sorrow
    To listen, to suffer, to entrust unto tomorrow

    In one fleeting moment, from the Land doth life flow
    Yet in one fleeting moment, for anew it doth grow
    In the same fleeting moment
    Thou must live
    Die
    And know

    Everybody, check out the lyrics for Answers! I used to sing this all the time around the office and with this post, I think I need to bring that back!

    Thanks as always, Fernehalwes!

    "Thy life is a river to bear rapture and sorrow
    To listen to suffer to entrust until tomorrow
    In one fleeting moment, from the land doth life flow
    Yet in one fleeting moment for the new leaf doth grow"
