Area 11 - Euphemia Lyrics




As I looked into the burning sky,
A tear forming in my eye
Memories of fallen dreams
And all those that have died.
Demons are possessing me.
Robbed of my eternity.
A cloud of ash that pierced the night;
I feel my hate take flight.

I'm choking on my own words and
I'm scared of backing down
Because the hope within us all
Is up in flames.
Twisted by my warring conscience,
The situation's pushing onwards.
Genocide
Forever taints your name.

This can't be, was this me?
I think I've lost control.
I caused this, I forced this,
Can I continue on?
I have caused this, I have forced this.
I caused this, I forced this, I caused this.

Mou oshimai da.
Betrayed by trust, forever left to scream.
Oh hold me closely and die in my arms,
And then take this secret with you,
And then take this secret with you.

I became your puppet master,
As you stared into my eyes,
Then stood and watched in horror
As you ordered them to die.

This could fuel The Revolution
This could be my last solution,
And all good victories
Come with a price.

Mou oshimai da.
Betrayed by trust, forever left to scream.
Oh hold me closely and die in my arms,
And then take this secret with you, woah
And then take this secret with you.

[Instumental Break]

Mou oshimai da.
Betrayed by trust, forever left to scream.
Oh hold me closely and die in my arms,
And then take this secret with you, woah
Then take this secret with you.
Just take my secret with you.

Area 11 Euphemia Comments
  1. Alfie Smith

    Just here for a nostalgia hit...

    Man it hurts

  2. Charlie Taylor

    Who thought the Yogscast made this song?

  3. Logan Blackwell

    I remember watching pirated episodes of Code Geass out of order on Youtube back in 2013 because of this song and Knightmare/Frame. I was 11 at the time and that show confused and terrified me, but I watched every damn episode. Now it’s on Netflix and I really don’t know whether I should watch it again or leave it as this surreal memory.

  4. ImARoadcone

    You all making references to shit but for me this was just randomly recommended on spotify

  5. Heinz Guderian

    Poor, poor... euphie

  6. Hot Shame

    Some came from Code Geass and some from the Yogscast.
    I was lucky enough to come from both sides, my favorite anime Code Geass and my favorite youtubers The Yogscast. I had a tear in my eye when i heard this song first time.

  7. Zslot The Gamer

    ;~; AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!

  11. rpgamer987

    I had really hoped that after the animatic, they'd maybe see a small boost in sales.

  12. TheGloryous Fencenail

    This song was meant for Shadow of Israphel no.43 😔 MOU OSHIMAI DA

    Its That guy

    4 weeks ago? you starting your year off right? xD

    Dikke Damp

    @Its That guy the video explaining what would happen in part 43 was uploaded 4 weeks ago so it makes sense he comments that now

    TECKNOMANIA

    @Dikke Damp What video?

  13. Jamie Aubrey

    I thought more people would have came back to this after that awesome animation

  14. Megalolpoo

    WE SAW IT FIRST, OLD PECULIAR LIVES!

    Johnny

    HE'S ALIVE

    JenkoRun

    Saw that too, that animation would have gained legendary status back then. 😕

    Zslot The Gamer

    @JenkoRun it was so damn close to being complete, but it was the damn world corruption that ruined most of their world

    Filip Gasic

    @Zslot The Gamer as they would say

    Zslot The Gamer

    @Filip Gasic perhaps

  25. Will Hush

    Honestly, these guys are shitty but this was my childhood.

  26. Stripnieks

    Everyone is here cause of anime, some are here cause of the yogscast, i'm here cause of the music.

  27. None_yo_business

    Hey Sparkles, if you ever read this, know that I always love to come back from time to time and enjoy your older songs. They remind me of my teen years, remind me of how I loved listening to them on the Yogs christmas streams and it just brings many many memories. Thanks guys!

  28. Phoenix Deux

    Man holy shit... The openttd stream! lewis and his boat endeavour.. The memories!

  29. Andrew Szlagowski

    Just listen closely to the drums near the start! SO GOOD

  30. Lewis

    This song made me want to watch Code Geass, I just finished it and now the lyrics suddenly make sense XD

  31. Odraheim

    I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS SONG FOR YEARS AFTER I HEARD IT ON THE YOGSCAST
    I POSTED A QUESTION ON REDDIT, AND FOUND IT
    FUCK
    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  32. Nick Currie

    I wish this version had the intro.

  33. doc of war

    anyone going to the Manchester one today ?

  34. RedVexX Gaming

    i love this song so much

  35. Perion Robinson

    R 3 B O I S

  36. Samli

    Now that I'm watching Code Geass these lyrics are spoilers lol

    Lytre_

    Season 3 confirmed WOOO!!!

  37. Aynessa Valerion

    For those wondering, "mou oshimai da" means "it's hopeless" or "it's all over." Basically a statement of sheer despair.

    Area 11 really did an awesome job of conveying Lelouch's despair and horror alongside his conviction to utilize it to the utmost for the Black Rebellion. Freaking love this song!

    Chris Campana

    i think this is from Euphemia's pov

  38. Neftimoon

    All hail Code Geass!

  39. carissa e

    Literally everyone that hears me play this thinks I'm listening to a power ranger theme

  40. astrangeparrot

    Area 11 don't make 'rock music' but if they did, it'd sound like this! <3

    astrangeparrot

    It's a quote from Sparkles, sorry I forgot the inverted commas.

    Timman97

    I kinda wonder what Euphemia would sound like if they tried remaking it in their current style. I wonder if it would sound better or worse

    Jorick2u

    probably worse tbh, still really wanted a new version of Euphemia on the album. i mean, how many diffrent versions do they have? Let's count:
    1. Euphemia Blackline Edition (Demo)
    2. Euphemia Blackline Edition
    3. Euphemia ATLITS Edition
    4. Euphemia ATLITS Edition (Off-Vocal)
    5. Euphemia Yogscast Edition
    6. Euphemia (Live session)
    7. Euphemia (Commentary)
    8. Euphemia (Sparkles* Trance Remix) *oh god the horror...*
    They really need a minimum of 3 other version xD

    Timman97

    Euphemia Eurobeat Discopunk edition and Euphemia Cowbell edition at the very minimum

    Jorick2u

    +Timman97 Euphemia dubstep edition? Euphemia death metal edition?

  41. Austin Reeves

    inthelittlewood brought me to minecraft, then to yogscast, and they brought me here, and this was my childhood

    Austin Reeves

    *gets nostalgic, sniffs, and goes and finds old yogscast videos, then plays .8 minecraft

    Soul

    Got that right. Remember his Kingdom let's play?

  42. RedFox51

    "Oh hold me closely and die in my arms" favourite area 11 line of all time

  43. TheDJPoulsen

    i'm here because i generally like area 11

    Enkog Neato

    nice pic bro

    Parker Mial

    Im here because they are amazing and this is my second favourite by them

    ghostbiitch

    Me too =D, I just found this out today, I'm new here c:

    Useless Shoe

    Me too m8

  44. Brutal Jake

    3:09 :'( I died. I remember back in 2013 when this band was my life. I just wish they would make a normal album, rather than an Anime based album.

    William Cuthbertson

    they are

    William Cuthbertson

    +William Cuthbertson well, have

  45. Brutal Jake

    3:09 :'( I died. I remember back in 2013 when this band was my life. I just wish they would make a normal album, rather than an Anime based album.

    Ethan Sarien-Averin

    Well there's the Modern Synthesis and it's original based I think.
    But overall it's a good album.

    Brutal Jake

    Yeah, My comment was before it came out lol, but Thanks.

  46. gabriellefoketi

    this was my jam in 2013 omgg ahah xD

  47. Nathan Mccallum

    why did they get rid of the badass old yogscast outro bit? that was my shit

    pokemonpasta

    That's at the end of Vectors

    Nathan Mccallum

    +pokemon pasta I was thinking of the older version of this song but thanks

    Gunnernacho118

    officially and originally its the buildup to this song in the older version. for some reason they put in as a "bonus segment" at the end of vectors. i dont know why

    Andrew Snashall

    They mentioned in one of their videos that they did this so that you could get straight into the song without having to listen to the intro if you select track three on the CD. Also if you have the CD version you still get the intro as vectors comes before euphemia.

    Spade-kun

    Pretty sure it ends of Vectors on YouTube tracks, they go together well too.

  48. Black Dragon

    All this music is free to use right?

    Shelby1414

    +Black Dragon No? It's an officially released, copyrighted album, so not at all.

  49. gothams finest

    eden thank you holy shit

    Joseph White

    loads of you have been talking about this guy called eden 😂 guessing you're all friends or something?

    petelexy may

    theyre a youtuber, actually.

  50. joei

    I don't like this comment section, I believe we should focus on the music, not why we're here.

  51. Molly Mix

    👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  52. ToxiK Owen

    I only paid for spotify premium for this :)

    Scrubttt

    Could've just got the album

    ToxiK Owen

    @incredibleguy i know but theres other area 11 songs i want and im so cheap

  53. fairyhaven13

    I'm here because of Yoglabs

  54. Zelimar

    is this song based on code geass?

    The Beandit

    +Zero Obviously.

    C C

    the band name should give as much away

    troy north

    All of their songs are about different anime

    The Beandit

    @troy north Not all of them, but many of them. In The Blind and Versus aren't based on anime as far as I know.

    troy north

    I think versus is about people going against each other like L against light goku against his many foes but a lot of their songs are about anime and Japanese culture but I do love area 11

  55. TrashTheToaster

    Thank you Eden

  56. Lucy Spittle

    Everyones here cuz anime... But if there are Yognaughts in the comments... Imagein the Flux Buddies feels....

  57. Lucy Spittle

    AAARRRGHHHH As a Yognaught I have no idea if I pefere the start of this or the ending of Vectors.... They both hit me in the feels..

  58. LOST FOSSIL

    my good buddy is making a book based off this song

    seriously!

    Aynessa Valerion

    Um....considering this song is based off of an anime, he might need to consider possible copyright infringement issues.

  59. Angelina Lemley

    now that I have watch some of code geass this makes alot more sense

  60. Angelina Lemley

    what anime is this from?

    Sacred Stars TC

    +angelina lemley Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. Mainly focused around episodes 22 and 23 of season 1.

    Angelina Lemley

    @Sacred_Stars TC thanks

    Sacred Stars TC

    @angelina lemley
    No prob. I love spreading the word of the show that got me back into anime :)

    Angelina Lemley

    @Sacred_Stars TC :)

  61. Andreas Drake

    Hey +Area11 why did you remove this awesome album from Spotify? :(

  62. Zephyrus Mapping

    What does "betrayed my trust forever" refer to?

    Lennart Gimm

    @***** Watching movies about Irish history for my English-exam in a few days, I don't even have time to think of anything else than English and maths :D

    Lennart Gimm

    @***** I'm on a German school. And for the Abitur, there are always two topics. This year it's Irish history and Canadian history. Next year it will be something about colonies in India and about the history of black people in America, as far as I know. It's just about English-speaking countries, not just about Great Britain. It kind of makes sense, if you look at it from the point that you are there to learn the language, and the history of those countries are a means of doing so... or something :D

    Lennart Gimm

    @***** No, haven't really been watching animes lately... I started watching Tokyo Ghoul, but I couldn't really get myself to watch any more of it. You know that feeling when you are just not in the mood for animes? My feeling in the last few months :(

    Aynessa Valerion

    +Lennart Gimm sorry to just insert myself into the conversation, but if you're still looking for an amazing anime that will blow your mind just like Geass, I highly recommend Durarara!! It may seem boring at first, but stick with it. Ep 10-11+ will leave you mind-blown.

    Though, I'm sorry to inform you that you will never find anything quite like Code Geass. I've been looking for 8 years and it is still #1 (at least for me).

    Lennart Gimm

    @Aynessa Valerion Thanks :) When I feel like watching another anime (and when I have the time for it) I will think of your advice ;)

    But too bad that there is nothig out there as good as code geass :(

  63. Yoori Kim

    im here because of liketotallyeden

    Bethan Acton

    +YooRi Kim same, mainly because of phan

    moved :0

    SAME OMG

    Serenity Tam

    +YooRi Kim Same

  64. Zephyrus Mapping

    Euphemia comes from Greek (Eu, meaning "good" and pheme, meaning fame) and literally means "Good fame". Quite the irony, since in the end she ended up quite the opposite.

    Aynessa Valerion

    Huh. And here I always thought it was a play on "ephemeral" which means "existing for only a short time."

    Charlie Taylor

    Who's "She"?

    thelonelysnowelf

    Euphemia.

    Nicholas Sexton

    @Charlie Taylor Daisy.

  65. Sophie Edwards

    This is always what happens... I say 'Oh I'll put some Area 11 on while I work'.1 minute later I'm singing along doing the air guitar.*Mom walks in*Silence.

  66. Aiman Azzarudin

    Thats sad, did they have to cut out the first part because its mostly known to be a yogscast thing?

    melvin smid

    +Nitro - The Fine Gentleman it is still the begining of euphemia they just didn't want you to have to listen to a 30 seconds intro everytime you wanted to listen to your favourite song

  67. StormGaming

    brings back old yogscast memories as the first of theirs that i watched was the tekkit series on the main channel and i decided to check these guys out a couple of days ago and was so happy to find the outro song.

  68. Callum Macey

    what the hell is that thing he kept saying? Ohhhh waaaa sheeee why????? dahhhhh xD

    Filip Torphage

    At least after the solo they said "Mou oshimai da", I think that's what you meant

    Callum Macey

    +Filip Torphage yeah it was Mou oshimai da

  69. Shini Saba

    Blackline version is better

  70. MUSICBLASTROCKS

    Wait... this is Code Geass? wow

  71. Secret Steve

    I seem to remember there being less synthesizing the last time I heard this song... and less nonsense about anime... and less fanboy comments...

  72. Russell Hoskins

    Is this from an none if so what one

  73. DEAD_P1XL

    アリア‘11大好きよ

  74. ParaNoza

    All i've got to say is fuck anime.

    Dub? ahaha peasant
    gotta use those subs m9

    vCroix

    I watched one episode of dubbed anime and I almost died..... Subbed is so much better.

    ParaNoza

    @***** Well umm....

    vCroix

    I would say no :P

    Area 11 don't make rock music. But if they did, it would probably sound like this.

  77. Seer

    I never watched anime before i listen to this but seeing all the comments say stuff about code geass anime is the only thing i watch now

  78. kayleigh elizabeth

    I'm here bc of like totally Eden tbh

    musicobsessedcookiemonster

    +ukuleleclique same :)

  79. Bradley Smith

    Been listening to their songs for months and only just realized they were inspired by anime.

  80. RedneckThe0ry

    I'm here because of Yogscast intro/outtro

  81. Sean Smith

    THUMBS UP IF YOU THINK THEY SHOULD ENTER BRITAINS GOT TALENT TO GET THE POPULARITY THEY DESERVE!

    Laura Byrne

    y u so worried about grammar grammar police

    Eillian

    +Sean Smith I agree they should be WAY MORE FAMOUS, but I don't think that BGT would help. The judges are honestly so blind to actual talent that's unique and worthy, and A11 would probably get far, but then some pop star or boy band would win, like every other year. A11 should enter a contest meant for this type of genre, or something where the judges are actually good at recognizing raw talent. :)

    Robert Stafford

    +Eillian came because comment notifications, stayed for the music

    Soupreme

    @Erik Thorleif Hmm, that is interesting. Although my joke still works, because it is a mere play on words, and because Britain simply doesn't exist in Code Geass.

    FieryHellzGaming

    +Soupreme Compounder but Britannia does Kappa

  82. Theo Ferreira

    I really want them to do a world tour so that I can actually watch them live

  83. Beefessence

    Why is there only a few songs from you guys in sptify :(

  84. Penguincamp

    Aaaand now it's gone from iTunes.

    :(

    WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME?!????

    Glennby

    Oh good. That wasn't only happening to me. It was very confusing.

  85. Josh Pike

    So after a number of years of being a fan of area 11 I started actually watching anime a few months ago, but it wasn't until the past few days I finally watched code Geass. I'm honestly speachless, the sheer power of this song is incredible now that I've seen it.

  86. Soda !

    I'm nit sure most you guys know this but the bands, Area 11, name is named after a reference in code geas ( what they call Japan)

  87. Someone Somewhere

    I'm here for the cookies

  88. Oscar Manners

    Everyone else be like: "ANIME ANIME CODE GEASS ANIME" and I'm just like: "TAP SHRED IBANEZ IRON LABEL DOUBLE BASS PEDAL KEYTARZ"

    Ain’t song by the Youdcast

    @Minum it's called shadows of israphel nightmare awoken

    @Mr Hashshashin yeeeessssss mate

  90. Cameron Peterson

    Is this a different version? Because everything I liked about this song is gone or changed.

    BioSuffix

    @Cameron Peterson Pretty sure you're thinking of the Blackline Edition. This is the original song but the most popular version is the Blackline Edition, check that one out.

  91. Sano Kei

    Is there music copyrighted? (even if its mixed there other song?)

    BioSuffix

    @williamcraftproject/mostpopuler their* on both accounts

  92. Vikare27

    Blackline version forever.

  93. JMS Motorsport

    Everyone's chilling in the comments like "OMG this has changed my view on anime forever!" And I'm here just like... "Yep.... Haven't watched a SINGLE SECOND of anime... but isn't that guitar solo just AMAZING!?!"

    sonicshroom

    +Jordan Reck-a-cow It certainly is. As a huge anime fan, the references are cool, but as a guitarist, my true mad props have gotta go to that solo.

    Mylittlebaboon

    The vectors solo was better tbh

    Kathleen Asmussen

    This was in an anime? I don't watch anime, and I won't even ask which one. I don't care. And yes, the guitar solo is amazing. :)

    Charlie Taylor

    Oh yeah it was!
    I love Shadow of Israphel too

  94. Symbxlize

    Rest in Peace Euphemia - Code Geass

    Jason Truong

    +0rb1tal Oh, that makes sense now. Thank you

    Joan Lindsey

    wow three years late or w/e but tokyo house party is FLCL. honestly my favorite show on here, i attribute this band to introducing it to me. the song deals w/ growing up and shit, and also has a prominent bass line b/c it's FLCL she hits ppl w/ a rickenbacker

  96. Lewis Brickley

    nice meme music

  97. Alex Rae

    Am I the only one who feels like this song goes hand and hand with the puppet from five nights at Freddy's

    LemonFizz Kidd

    @Alex Youngdragon Its about an anime called "Code Geass"
