"Memoro de la S^tono" Lyrics

"Memoro de la S^tono" is unique in that it is probably the only song from a game soundtrack that has lyrics written in Esperanto. Esperanto is an interesting language in itself, and it bears some resemblance to Latin. The original Esperanto lyrics on the left are taken from the liner notes of the FFXI OST. The English lyrics on the right are a rough translation of my own, made possible with an online Esperanto dictionary I found. I learned the basic structure of the language from a set of lessons available at that same website (Esperanto is a very easy language to learn ^^). If you'd like to learn more about Esperanto, the best online resource is

Memoro de la S^tono

Fluas nun sango senkulpa,
sur Vana'diel, vasta ter'.
Tremas la tuta mond'
pro l' plago en desper'.

Preventas g^in
nenia sort'.
Haltigas g^in
nenia fort'.

Sed tra la nokto tempesta
brilas jen stelo de glor'!
Kontrau~ brutala kri'
fontas jen kant-sonor'!

Stelo brilanta, kanto sonanta:
revo kaj preg^o por ni!

Vana'diel! Vana'diel!

Mano kaj man' kunpremitaj
trans la eterno sen lim'
ne dismetig^os plu,
ne disligig^os plu!

Memory of the Stone

Now flows the blood of the innocent,
upon the vast earth of Vana'diel.
The entire world trembles
in despair because of the calamity.

Preventing it
is not our destiny.
Stopping it
is not in our power.

But through the stormy night
appears a star of glory!
Against the brutal cry
springs forth the sound of music!

Brilliant star, resounding song:
a dream and a prayer for us!

Vana'diel! Vana'diel!

Hand and hand clasped together
across eternity without bound
they will not be broken apart any more,
they will not be separated again!
