This song is about my all time favorite video game Final Fantasy for NES. I first played it when I was six and I have replayed it many times since. Specifically the song references the ruined city of Melmond before you battle the first fiend.


I am the doom bringer and I am the dark lord
I am the messenger, I am but the first.

Somewhere out there a city stands in a state of peril
gripped by a terrible plague. No place to go for shelter
seek for refuge, no food or drink for as long as I can
remember. Is there anyone to save this city, is there
anyone to save this town? Is there anyone to save
the people that really deserve it? (x2)
All the people that really deserve it (x2)

If it were me, I’d never have it end this way, the thing
about us, we never give up, NEVER GIVE UP.
Sometimes fighters get slain, yet enemies still remain.
Still so far from the end, four orbs all must shine again.
We’ll make ‘em shine.
