F F I X, F F I X, F F I X, F F I X (We'll Fly) Gona fly, fly, fly on high! Our Chocobos will reach the sky! Chocobos are so freaking cool, it's true. They're here to provide for you, a ride to the great big blue. Chocobos swim and climb through mountains high, and if you're a lucky guy, they'll take you up to the sky! There is a hope that they can save the day, and when they find their way, we're sure to leap super high and say, "Chocobos rule" and now we'll save Gaia, From a super evil man, who sure likes to speak in metaphors. F F I X, F F I X, F F I X, F F I X (We'll Fly) Gonna fly, fly, fly on high! Our Chocobos will reach the sky! Chocobos come in many colored hues. Can you find the one that's blue? Or maybe the gold one, too? Ride in the day or in the nighttime moon. Your chocobo's here for you, so hop on and sing the tune! We like to hunt for treasure in the ground, and we will ride away, to fight the evil away from town! We cannot thing of more to sing right now, so let's sing about the word; the word of the greatest bird we love! Chocobos will fly! Oh, yeah! (Chocobos will save the day!)

Memories crumble around me (Memorai lerami, yahi) Everything changes around me (Evorai sharani, nahi) Found you but only to lose you (Fayu bala luyo, yuwo) I found you but only to lose you (Fayu bala yalo, aya) Searching the world for lost love (Selowa yaha, laa) Left without you Memories crumbled around me (I searched through the highest of mountains) Nothing familiar around me (I searched through the deepest of valleys) For days I was lost without reason (All I found was traces of footsteps) I roamed with the changing of seasons (All I heard was rumours of victories) Searching the world for my past (Dragon's Oath has bound us) I have found you
Tour Guide: Ah! First time in town? Well, on behalf of Treno's Information and Tourism Commitee I'd just like to say...

I live alone, and I just met you And yet I get you like no one will Your ruffled shirt, your giant forehead Your weird detached cuffs, your twitching tail What is in that letter that you’re writing? Do you hear the siren song of love? Is there anything that’s more exciting? Do you want some help with rhymes and stuff? You’re just a nerd, and you can’t help me (And yet I’ve loved— or at least read of love— before) But this is different! Zidane is special (If “special“ means “alive” then, sure, he’s that and more) Fine. Then can you help me write this letter? (I am very educated, surely this is child’s play) I don’t really know what I am doing (I’ll go break out my thesaurus, we’ll be done before the chorus, I say You don’t seem the type to let that stop you, am I right?) What is more romantic than the night sky? (What about the moon and how it’s hanging like a jewel in there?) How can I express the way I feel? (This imparts some satisfaction; we still need a call to action; how about at nine o’clock you have him meet you by the dock?) Dr Tot! I didn’t know you knew how to play saxophone!… wow, he’s pretty good, actually… maybe you’re not such a nerd after all! “When the night sky wears the moon as its pendant, I shall await you down at the dock” (Hey! That’s pretty good!) And then I’ll (you’ll) tell him… the way I (you) feel.

Brave souls journey on Through a vortex where dimensions are forlorn Forging a new path In a world still unknown Beneath shimmering stone Lies the secret of the place where you belong What you are shall be revealed Under the light of the blue moon The glowing threads of fate will lead you to bitter truths The weight of your name is a choice that falls upon you Rejoin the cycle and remember why you exist Restore this world in crimson skies and fulfill your quest Enemy or friend? In your power hides a threat to selfish plans Their flow disrupted by the streaming blood of senseless war The glowing threads of fate will lead you to bitter truths The weight of your name is a choice that falls upon you Rejoin the cycle and remember why you exist Restore this world in crimson skies and fulfill your quest Rejoin the cycle Remember why Restore this world In crimson skies In crimson skies Fate will lead you to bitter truths The choice falls upon you Remember why you exist Restore this world in crimson skies
Free to roam, free to fly, Through the fields, through the sky, Soar through the mist now, With heart of crystal. Safety's near, shelter's here, Leave me be, I'll be here, When the time comes I will find you. Escape your fate, escape your doom, There is more than just sorrow through the door of this room, Knock down any obstacle, push through the path, So that once again you may find the light of peace. Hold on (I'll be there) Don't give up (Don't lose hope) Let the light guide you through dark times that cloud us, I will not let the mist create a dark abyss Around us, surrounding us is light.
Once upon a time With a big ol' frown Shining in the sun ~ The Capt'n of the Pluto's had arrived, Sword in hand he said; --- sweaty head and all "Fall in line, you sleuths!" --- what a friendly man Men Assembled: Noooone! Scrambled, scatter'd, missin', dissin', yup! (Improv) Clonking steps, Ooooooh, run quick! Means he's close... DASH! Run, run-run,run-run, run-run Away. from. him nununununununununun *Intelligible lyrics no one is actually sure of, but a few keywords like "stomp around" Oglop's are our friends --- squishy little saints Scares the man away --- how useful Smells a bit, but hey --- they oil our armors for us And they keep the bloody thieves away, yay! The mightiest of Jaws --- Square but oh so soft Handsome like a Flan --- Or a Gargoyle Beatrix is weird --- what does she see in Capt'n? Maybe she's delusional, like him? *Everyone agrees in some forms or another that Steiner is indeed very delusional* Uuuuh, We. should. stop. --- Why so? He stands right there! --- DASH! One awkwardly oblivious knight does not notice the escaping group and continues on the "Run, run-run,run-run, run-run. Away. from. him...... Oh, uhm, Hi Captain?"

We thought the next Final Fantasy cover album from Materia Collective was long overdue, and we both have a big love for the Final Fantasy IX soundtrack. As the game focuses so much on character development and connections, we wanted to celebrate those ideas with a theme of collaboration. Each track on EIDOLON is the work of multiple Materia Collective artists working together to develop their interpretations of the classic music of Final Fantasy IX.
