"In a world long abandoned by the gods,
many lands float high in a sea of clouds. Long ago,
the Astral beings kept the world at their
mercy with their formidable power.
But after great conflict and resistance from the Skydwellers,
the Astrals disappeared and the world enjoyed peace once again.
"

"And now on the mystic island of Zinkenstill,
our hero prepares to journey to the promised land,
guided by a short missive and one remaining member:
the red-winged dragon Vyrn.
But the adventure starts off with a surprise,
as their island home is suddenly engulfed in flames.
"

"A warship of the militaristic Erste Empire casts down
a shadow from above and amongst the calamity,
our hero encounters a mysterious girl named Lyria.
Their fates now tied, the two embark on a voyage
to reach dreams much bigger than this realm,
and beyond the sky.

"What... What makes the sky blue? For thousands of years, people have wondered... And even once they grasped the science, they continued to ask... It struck me... Perhaps a question is really just a wish."
Remains of Lucifer (What Makes The Sky Blue II: Paradise Lost)

"What makes the sky blue? You were so captivated by the question that grew into a wish... Perhaps beasts like us simply envy the ability to harbor such illogical thoughts. The Astrals who gave us birth didn't grant us that faculty. Nor the potential to dream of an independent future... You wanted to see where evolution would lead. So I'll follow that path in your stead."
Sandalphon (What Makes The Sky Blue II: Paradise Lost)

"The winged hosts...
...gather at the summit of Pandemonium.
Wings drenched in calamity...
...transformed curses into prayers.
Providence and Chaos. The intervention of the immortals.
The defiled Etemenanki. The rejected world.
What is a 『God』?
Why was this 『World』 created?
What is the meaning of 『Mortal』 life?
What Makes the Sky Blue Part. III
The conclusion of the Primarchs' saga.

Gran and Lyria summoning Proto Bahamut (Anime)

Isaac: I'll tell you another interesting tidbit about those of us with moon origins, Ducky. You and I are probably related.
Zeta: Who're you calling Ducky!
Isaac: There's no real way to tell where your ancestors came from after about the fifth generation.
Raybury: It's hard to believe, but there are quite a few things that originated from the moon.
Isaac: The world is full of connections, like a big plate of tangling spaghetti.

Song Lyrics

English Vocals

These covers the songs which are sung completely, (or mostly in The Ultimate's case) in English
    Defend Order - Offensive Defense 
"Gather here you knights, soaring higher.
Race and fly into the sky.

Take your shining glory knights, flying freer.
Bet your pride and honor.
People of the sky, rise up!

A thousand battles we have seen,
With swords, spears, hammers and bows in hand
We fight to be... the reigning champions of the sky!

Scream your name out to the ends of the sky.
And carve your glory into legend!
Resound your swords to the ends of the sky.
Devote your passion to the stars
"
Defend Order - Offensive Defense

    New World Order 
"The World now has come, and change is at hand.
Destiny's pulsing fragments awake and await commands.
My soul will rise to a new dimension. It's burning with possibility.
Twenty-two disciples of light and dark have set the portal free.

Justice! Let the scales deal harsh equality.
Hanged Man! Endure his foolish crucibles.
Death! Let love burn to its silent end.
Temperance! Reign over havoc, weal, and woe.
The Devil! Fear the vortex swallowing all.
The Tower! Tear it down with the wicked ones.
The Star! Rend dark paths to distant wars.
The Moon! Turn it on its head. Reality's a lie.
The Sun! Worship the mercy that outshines sick truths.
Judgment! Sound the trumpets to the empire's end.

The World!
Ah, how far away the ideal world!
Ah, how far away the eternal world!

So, Karma weaves fate into a third world. I know the road is unforgiving.
So, Karma weaves fate into a third world. I know the road is unforgiving.

He told me so, but I gave my word. Ah, how far away the ideal world!
He told me so, but I gave my word. Ah, how far away the ideal world!
"
New World Order

    Black Silver Wings 
"A blaze of carnage
The dragon's might is gone
And its eyes, and its maw, and its memories are gone.

Knocking on the door of truth.
A red-scale wyrm and girl in blue.
Chiaroscuro chaos awakens me.

Rebirth and destruction, here at my command.
Rebirth and destruction, again and again.
Rebirth and destruction, here at my command.
Rebirth and destruction, again and again.

I'll shatter this sky when the last chain breaks
In the ashes and the ruins, we'll abide to recreate
An age of evolution will dawn!

Pulled by fate's strands so strangely naturally
our paths crossed in far-off lands
Now my power's in your hands

Bright black wings beg to be spread
Fiery red horns and claws will melt
a frozen-over destiny into liberty

Rebirth and destruction, here at my command.
Rebirth and destruction, again and again.
Rebirth and destruction, here at my command.
Rebirth and destruction, again and again.

Are shatters of sky better back in place?
Or are they better where they lie?
How outrageous would that be?
Something made me wonder...

I'll shatter this sky when the last chain breaks
In the ashes and the ruins, we'll abide to recreate
An age of evolution will dawn!

Rebirth and destruction, beyond the evolution.

Rebirth and destruction, under the horizon.

Rebirth and destruction, here at my command.
Rebirth and destruction, again and again.
Rebirth and destruction, here at my command.
Rebirth and destruction, again and again.
Rebirth and destruction, here at my command.
Rebirth and destruction, again and again.
"
Black Silver Wings

    The Ultimate 
"Heaven's torn asunder,
and chaos tumbles down

The world turns crimson. The stirring begins.
It thrashes, it crashes into the land.
And into the skies it rises.

In the empty sky is an inferno for me.
In the world beyond is redemption.

I weep alone in a world abandoned.
I weep alone in a world abandoned!

Rebirth and destruction, here at my command!
Rebirth and destruction, again and again!

Stay blue, stay blue, stay blue!
I've seen too much blood,
and the flames have charred me through.
Protect the sprawling blue.
Keep it ever clear and pure.
"
The Ultimate

    Paradise Lost 
"I am what I am, but who am I?
Can't remember, brain tormented
Isolated, lost in my senses
[Desecrated–aching, my spirit]x2
Never, ever no–forever, this endless war
And yet, I bet, no regret, I could handle more

"Destroy it all..."

That call... So defined, so specific; carved on my mind, hieroglyphics
[Ahhh... I get it. It's proof of the truth, the darkest pact]x2
No excuse to ensue, better chew–on that; the chronic track inflicting naked fact

[Chorus]
Let me feel the power that could rip me to shreds
Can't last one more hour, how soon will I meet my end?
I can't return to those days that I've forgotten
But the memories fade, leaving me thinking...

It is what it is, but where are we?
World in my hand, palm of the damned
Chaos unleased, the fall of man
Fallen belief–deceased, demon's command
Infernal, inferno, infamous malevolence
[So evil, medieval, meticulous irreverence]x2

"Destroy it all..."

You crawl with no vision; soul burned, cruel ambition imprisoned
But I'm proud to present my ascent, your torment: the dark prince
[Ruler and ruled, king of delusion;]x2 mock me mortal? Final conclusion

[Chorus]

How many times will my world revolve, future resolved, lost child in eternity, darkness evolved?
Doesn't matter much, deception: fated, anxiety: clutch
Clutch more souls–A few thousands to live, a few million's enough
'Nough. To become, to succumb, to crumble, to plunge, to feel the hatred
To grow numb

"Destroy it all..."

[Chorus]x2

(Play in the background during the second repeat of the chorus)

That call... So defined, so specific; carved on my mind, hieroglyphics
[Ahhh... I get it. It's proof of the truth, the darkest pact]x2
No excuse to ensue, better chew–on that; the chronic track inflicting naked fact
You crawl with no vision; soul burned, cruel ambition imprisoned
But I'm proud to present my ascent, your torment: the dark prince
[Ruler and ruled, king of delusion;]x2 mock me mortal? Final conclusion

The memories fade, leaving me thinking..."
Avatar (Paradise Lost)

    Pregando Chorus 
"Travelling an endless road
Stopping here and there
Having new encounters, finding treasure everywhere....
So, never looking back...
For there is nothing there to see...
Simply journeying through where your heart leads you...
If I could have but one wish..
That's what it would be....
That's what it would be...."
Caro (Together in Song)

    Parade's Lust 
"Ah hell, welcome to my feast, time to start the hedonism
Yes, tonight you take the lead, daddy won't stop your inhibitions
Just do what you want, do what you like
Release those desires, let ‘em go higher, show me your exhibition

Evil? Who, Me? You think so? Let’s see
People wanna judge—short-sighted at best—but what do they know about me?
Just look at your grudge, forget the rest; you don’t feel the debauchery?
If the eyes are the mirror to the soul, then I’m sold, so—
Oh? You got more to say? Then spit it out, feel it loud, go ahead, ask away

Love? In this life? Passion? Yeah, right
Ideals are cheap, takes a poor soul to fall for ‘em, poorer still to creep
‘Cause the world, this house, the bed you sleep, all of it’s corrupt
Erupt, down to the core, dirty hands for dirty love, searching for some kinda carnal release
We're all rotten underneath, down to the bone, inside of you, inside of me
Then again, no doubt it's hot, I'm into that kind of thing!

(Oh yeah!) Bare your virtue, fake it if you like, I won't hurt you, try to keep me in line, angel
(Almost there!) Expose that soul, reveal it all
(Harder, yeah!) We've arrive; abandon all your reason, embrace that instinct, with tears and sweat, and sweet, sweet treason!
(Un! Ungh! Ungh...) Off. Call me anal retentive, but I'm bored. Later

Ah hell, let's get to the finish line, welcome to my body-on-body parade!
Go ahead, let your mind go, feel the fire between your thighs escalate
It's our hot white night, we can just melt away
Strip down to the skin, till you're ready to begin, and I'll fill the holes in tour hate

Happy wit your life right now? Sure, you might say so, raise a brow, but you know, how many fools, tools, live a life well endowed?
Gotta give it up if already you know joy, here's to good luck, here's one to your health!
Yep, ah hell, don't think about a thing, just listen to me swell
It's just us, it's just, playing with out mouths together

Bow-chicka-wow-wow... Now bow chicka bow down.
Bow-chicka-wow-wow... Now bow chicka bow down.
Bow-chicka-wow-wow... Now bow chicka bow down.
Bow-chicka-wow-wow... Now bow chicka bow down."
Belial (Parade's Lust)

    Zero 
"Give praise, for he has no equal
Worship him. A god has been born unto the world
Cower in fear. He will not forgive any vice
Devote yourself. Your fate is all but written

What is a god? Omnipotence given form
For what, did he invoke creation? So life may thrive
Then what, meaning lies in life?
What becomes of that question?

Come, watch your world drift into vivid reality
Bring your will, ready yourself for supremacy
Black wings will reign down, fulfilling the skyborn prophecy
Life and death become one, the miserable and the blessed return to the void

Receive the twilight, witness as all creation twists into new form
Now I call you, O grand chaos
I prostrate myself before you in this moment, grant my wish
Turn all, bind all until everything is black darkness
And I pray to you, for rebirth in pure, white splendor"
Lucilius (Zero)

    Existence 
"What makes the sky blue?" Who was the first to ask?
Were they a fool, a sage, or just a lonely friend?
Why was the sky made, and where is the truth?
Staring at the clear expanse, I still don't understand this world.

Red stairs beneath my feet. Blue covers the view on high.
What is real and what is fake? I can't go on confused between the two!
Now, show me your bravery. Take flight with those transient wings.
Now, throw away your pride. Take the fight with brilliant scorn.
Peace is long gone, unreachable by now.
It's too late for hindsight, too late to look back.

At the end of fate, there ends the world! The birth of a new king!
Oh my lonely friend, come witness a new birth!
Witness the sight! And what would you think?
Would you kneel for me, or would you go mad with jealousy?
Neither is my wish, but whatever happens to you will satisfy me.

Peace is long gone, unreachable by now.
It's too late for hindsight, too late to look back.

At the end of the fight is the end of the story, a new perspective!
A reconstruction of history!
What kind of dreams did you dream?
Would you tell me? Maybe I'll make them come true.
I can no longer stop. In this moment. my life will burn through the end...
My life will burn through the end!"
Beelzebub (Existence)

    Transient Butterfly Blade (Narmaya's theme) 
"A swaying, transient dream, I close my eyes and reach out
A fleeting heat haze, calling my name

Fluttering, spinning and falling, memory-like flowers
I can't stop them yet

If what the dancing butterflies seek, lays ahead of this
Please, guide this self, to farther, greater heights
Blades dance, like Kagura, reaching to my illusions of you
Believing that one day, I can reach you

Love and hate flicker on the water's surface, dissolving to silence
For a brief moment, this wish blooms, for you to love and hold me

Oh swaying, awakening, cruel dream
Know the winds, and fly!

If what the dancing butterflies wish to protect, is here right now
Please, cut it with these hands, the path to the far high heavens
Blades dance, like Genji, to those eyes that I miss
Believing that one day, this fire will be lit to them

Ahh... if it's allowed to be, please let this illusion not fade
Grant the power to protect those warm hands to my blade

If what the dancing butterflies seek, lays ahead of this
Please, guide this self, to farther, greater heights
Blades dance, like Kagura, reaching to your shadow
Believing that one day, this dream will reach"
Narmaya (Transient Butterfly Blade)

    Pride (Beatrix' theme) 
"The light released from the blue and white,
Is reflected in eyes free of doubt.
I will never forget that which is embodied in my sword:
My gallantry, my objective.

I engrave into my heart every bitter day.
So that I may one day retake that which I've lost.

Dashing across the endless sky,
Even if I'm overtaken by the bright light,
I'll exchange this accelerating zeal into a tomorrow.
No matter what adversity stands before me, I'll cut a path open,
Faster than the Granblue.

No matter how many times I'm sullied, or suffer losses,
You'll never take away this heart of mine,
For I'll keeping clinging to it:
My one and only pride.

The vexation that slipped through my unreliable hands,
Drove my body to move.
My stubborn heart barred my way;
I lost sight, but still insisted on walking ahead.

Spinning my now rusted clock, I retrace step by step,
So as to not lose anything important ever again.

The grand blue sky is ever so vast.
Because you've made me realize the kindness of your strength,
I can face forward, trusting the hand that I grasp.
No matter the darkness, I've decided that I'll no longer stop.
Onward, to uncharted skies!

I'll never protect anything by being self-centered.
I want to protect this light that I have now.
I've finally grasped it...!

Dashing across the endless sky,
Even if I'm overtaken by the bright light,
I'll exchange this accelerating zeal into a tomorrow.
No matter what adversity stands before me, I'll cut a path open,
And turn it all into my strength.

No matter how many times I'm sullied, or suffer losses,
You'll never take away this heart of mine,
For I've finally found it:
My own personal pride."
Beatrix (Pride)

    Guidepost through the Sky (Ferry's theme) 

"The sky I'm heading towards with this small body of mine is too wide,
making my eyes overflow with tears!

Searching for you, i took a peek at this world,
that you gazed upon with these clear eyes of yours.

I was given a reason to fight for,
now that I have the power to create a future for myself.

Reaching high, high above,
until I would be able to see from within this endless dream.
I shall fly! The needle will point me towards you.
I won't lose my way anymore,
with my guidepost through the sky!

Hope gently warms the painful scars on this big back of mine.
For the sake of the people I trust, I tightly grasped my weapon in my shivering hands.

A light still remains behind my eyelids,
that gave me the courage to believe in the future.

Resounding ever so strongly,
the words from that day still keep me moving on even now.
As I trace your steps through the white map,
it can't hide from me anymore,
our miraculous reunion.

Within the limitless possibilities, (fire!) (water!)
the single answer that I choose, (earth!) (wind!)
will become the star leading me to you, (light!) (dark!) (fly!)
and turn my yearning into a destiny!

Can you see me dashing through
the ever so blue glittering sky?

Reaching high, high above,
until I would be able to see from within this endless dream.
I shall fly! The needle will point me towards you.
I won't lose my way anymore,
with my guidepost through the sky!"
Ferry (Guidepost through the sky)

    In this small, narrow world 
If our minds are calm, we'll always be able to laugh together.
I've believed that all along;
I'll keep believing that tomorrow and the next day too.

Gazing at my leaving brethren, I listen to the footsteps of ruin.
Eventually, everything will come to nothing, merely kneeling before impermanence.

 "Form does not differ from emptiness,"
 See the continually changing landscape,
 "Emptiness does not differ from form."
 See the ripening and rotting vegetation.
 "Form is emptiness,"
 Blessings for all life,
 "Emptiness is form."
 Applause for inevitable death.

In this small world,
We just want to live modestly and quietly, but we can't.
Within the gradual destruction, we'll sing a gentle song.

What if, when I woke up in the morning, everyone was saying nonsense?
I've been thinking about that too,
The whole time, again and again.

 "Without fear,"
 As one understands, one realizes enlightenment.
 "Free from all"
 The rabble becomes affable.
 "Distortion and delusion,"
 Leave it in one's heart, and it will remain for eternity.
 "[The bodhisattva] finally attains nirvana."

Oh, no matter how hellish this place becomes,
Our living radiance shall never fade!
In our dying moments, we'll gently hum our song to you.

In this small world,
We just want to live modestly and quietly; that's all we ask.
Within the gradual destruction, we'll sing a gentle song.
Come now, close your eyes.

 "Gate gate pāragate"
 "Pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā."
