Trouble with the audio sample?

"Otherworld" is a song from Final Fantasy X. It was arranged by The Black Mages' rhythm guitarist Michio Okamiya, with lyrics by Takuya Sugimoto and performed by Bill Muir. It plays during the first FMV of the game and a looped version plays during the battle against Jecht as Braska's Final Aeon.

Lyrics

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 faith 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 it, you know it, you know it, you know it, that you will
You know it, you know it, you know it, you know it, 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

Meaning

"Otherworld" is generally thought to be a retelling of Tidus's journey. Many verses point out facts and events in the game. The following is a list of quite explicit references in the lyrics:

An otherworld awaits you

Spira

You bite the hand that feeds you

Tidus hated Jecht and, to a certain extent, Auron, both of whom raised him.

All alone, cold fields you wander

Tidus finds himself alone upon arriving in Spira.

Memories of it, cloud your sight

Dream Zanarkand

Fills your dreams, disturbs your slumber

Zanarkand fills the dreams of the fayth

Lost your way, a fallen knight

Jecht is Sin

One thousand years, you ready?

Tidus initially thinks that he has been flung a thousand years into the future.

Free me, pray to the faith in the face of the light

Yuna is freed from her sacrifice

Feed me, fill me with sin, and get ready to fight

Jecht feeds upon death and longs to die.

The otherworld, it makes you

Tidus is created by the fayth of Spira

The otherworld, it hates you

Tidus upturns Yevon with his ideas

Free now, ride up on it
Up to the heights, it takes you
Go now, if you want it
The otherworld awaits you

The entire section is a reference to Tidus's disappearance at the end of the game and his return (his return is shown briefly at the end of Final Fantasy X and is shown entirely and the end Final Fantasy X-2).

Other Versions

Dissidia Final Fantasy

This song appears in Dissidia Final Fantasy. It appears as a background music that can be chosen for a battle, or may be automatically chosen when Tidus or Jecht are fought, or if a battle is fought at Dream's End.

The Black Mages

The Black Mages created an alternate version of "Otherworld" in their second album, The Black Mages II: The Skies Above featuring Kazco Hamano as a guest vocalist.

Trivia

  • At the end of the original version, Muir is heard screaming "Straightedge! Till I die! Lost Cause!", a reference to his favored genre, his band and his last recorded album with it.
  • A common misconception is that the German band Rammstein is the performer of this song. This could easily be proven false, however, due to the fact that Rammstein is usually seen performing in German rather than English.

The otherworld as shown through the window of the Sunstar.

The Otherworld was a planet that resided within a rip in space, most likely otherspace. It was the home of the Wizards of the Night Spirit after their banishment from the forest moon of Endor. The area on the planet where the Wizards lived was a devastated wasteland filled with bones of dead animals and no vegetation. They stayed there until they were finally able to find a way back though the rip in space to attack Endor. However, the attack failed, and they were forced back to the otherworld.
