Equilibrium (Sophia) Lyric Video | Final Fantasy XIV

According to Michael-Christopher Koji Fox, the lyrics describe a Meracydian family torn apart by war against the Allagans, which is further destroyed by the goddess Sophia's brand of justice and balance.

After the father is slain in the war, the mother becomes abusive. At Sophia's request, the daughter murders the mother to "restore the imbalance created by her father's death". She then commits suicide, punishing herself for murder which leaves their home empty and forgotten.

Lyrics: Michael-Christopher Koji Fox
Vocals: Ayumi Murata

The sigh of the shifting sea
The kiss of the salt-sweet breeze
The white of her silken dress, stained in red

A memory fading fast
Her mother sits, eyes downcast
A torn uniform in hand, farewells unsaid

That once in certainty, lost in grief
A daughter's desperate cries, unheard pleas
Forsaken, beaten, tried, on her knees
A prayer passes from her lips
Into her soul the Goddess whispers:

"A heartbeat without harmony
Is moonlight without dark
The heart seeketh equilibrium
With balance will your worry part.

So still this broken melody,
And therewith shoulder thee.
One last step only leaving
An empty hearth down by the sea.
An empty hearth down by the sea."
