Perfectly in the Balance

Hello! This is Okieeomi from the Community team.

Can you believe two months have passed since the release of Patch 6.1? And 6.15 launched recently too. I guess it's true that time flies when you're having fun! Whether you're working on the main scenario, tackling the new Extreme or Unreal trial, or challenging the new Ultimate encounter I hope your time in FFXIV has been eventful!

Today we're excited to share the lyrics for In the Balance, a song featured in Aglaia, the first part of the Myths of the Realm alliance raid dungeon series!

The song plays when you encounter the final boss of the raid, but if you listen closely, leitmotifs from this track can be heard throughout the other melodies as well.

So, without further ado, enjoy the lyrics!

In the Balance

O twin gods bless this land, to us treasure bestow
City of desert sands, water and gold below

Lifeblood and rubies red, precious coins cast aglow
Four hands our fortunes mend, that want we may not know

And when we reach our ends, to scales we gladly go
Our fates are yours to bend, to hells and heavens flow

Under arid sky, with silk veils we weave a rainbow
Voices lifted high, dreams upon our backs we carry

When day beckons night (day and night dancing),
As does restless time we never slow

Trusting hand in hand, life death will follow
Stoke now nascent flame, brighter burn, dance with souls afire
May ember catch and red-gold spark rise to new heights
May we want for naught coin can buy
Never see wealth's river run dry
May we find fortune after life
For this we pray, we pray, we pray, we pray twinfold

Stoke now kindled flame, hotter burn, sing till breath expires
May those who wander paths in the dark find firelight
May we all as true equals die
Never fear unjust favor's bite
May we be judged by what is right
For this we pray, we pray, we pray, we pray twinfold

We hope the lyrics provide better insight into song's theme and allow you to grasp the feelings of those who call Ul'dah home!
