Notes:

  • Stanzas 1), 2), and 3) begin at different times, in that order, and are sung simultaneously. They end at the same time.
  • * “kenme” is there on the Kajiuran lyrics at the back of the Songbook, but it’s not there in the sheet music. I personally would go with the sheet music and take out “kenme” since there is less chance for misprinting on the sheet music.
  • **”ye(e)mi” is written on its own line in the lyrics section, but I think it’s more intuitive to write it this way since the two “camine” parts begin together.
  • Lyrics from: the “Yuki Kajiura Songbook #4 – “The image theme of Xenosaga II Fiction II ver Vocal score”
  • Portions of this theme are heard in “In the Beginning There Was…” and “Fatal Fight”, but the ‘raw’ image theme itself was not used in the game. It was, however, used in preview trailers for the game.
