Our Darkest Dreams

You’re Not Alone! (Final Fantasy IX) / Time’s Scar (Chrono Cross) — Rock Vocal Cover

Rock vocal cover / medley of songs by Blake Inc.:
You’re Not Alone! – Final Fantasy IX OST – Nobou Uematsu
Scars of Time (aka: Time’s Scar) – Chrono Cross – Yasunori Mitsuda

I’ve previously dabbled in video game vocal covers before and this time it’s no different: A game music tune (two actually!), loud guitars and – you guessed it – vocals. This time, we did a three-minute progressive rock opera heavy symphonic metal kind-of-thing. I hope it sounds better than it reads! We also submitted this to OCRemix and since they only accept original song titles we came up with the name ‘Our Darkest Dreams’.

And so, after another two year absence, we finally got around to make another video! For that, we also got to test-drive our new camera. We’re pretty excited about the outcome and we hope you are too. 🙂

Matti has been handling bass (and backing vocal) duties on some of our previous songs. And here he is, back in action. This time, he also contributed the lyrics, which I’ve listed further below.

Filmed in Bonn, Germany.

Song lyrics:

Lost so far from home
Tell me, are you friend or foe?
Ever growing colder
I’m just an empty shell

Now all hope is gone
Left in here to die alone
Banished to the shadows
Where all is barren and bleak

Now the die is cast
Caught within my distant past
Plagued by these illusions
Of days I’ll never see

Help me break these chains
Now it’s time to turn the page
Save me from the shadows
I put my trust in you

Come with me, my friends
This war I can’t fight alone
Guide me with your light

There’s no turning back
We must face all our darkest dreams
I am so afraid

But I’m not alone in this barren place
When all fades away, you’ll stay by my side

And I was blind, but now I can see
The future that lies just ahead of me
