Track Name: Undertale
Once upon a time
When magic was alive
There were two noble races
That ruled over earth
Coexisting with unease
Divided but at peace
Lay the kingdom of monsters
And kingdom of men

But the humans feared for their own frailty
The power of monsters with a human soul
Their attack was sudden and merciless
Without warning or control - no

Without a single death
The final force was sent
Seven masters of magic
To seal them away
With surrender made at last
The barrier was cast
And the humans rejoiced
For the dawn of the day

When the world they fought
Was gone and buried
The mountain sealing
All their shame away
And as time went past
Human life outlasted
The memory of the war

Our history evolved into legend
The legend evolved into myth
All that was left was the story
Of the monsters who once shared the earth
The souls that are drawn to the mountain
Climb up there and never return
But one human soul stays
Determined without end

In this world your soul is powerful
As the heart of life or death
Through love and hate
Deciding fate
A power beyond belief
Sing the legend of the undertale
And the child who fell from earth
The mountain and the tale that lies beneath

We were buried
And forgotten
So many lives ago
Climb the mountain
That entraps us
And we'll see the sky once more

They have buried
Not just monsters
But lives and hearts as well
When our time comes
We will take their souls
And make our return

Sing once again
Of the war between monsters and men
Keep belief within your heart
And hold on to your soul

In this world your soul is powerful...
The tale of the hidden hearts
Shining in darkness
Buried souls
The tale that lies beneath
Track Name: Kill or Be Killed
Child of the kingdom
Prince of the monsters
Raised with the fallen human

Victim of malice
Killed by deception
Walked a false path to freedom

Waking reborn as a flower
Trapped unmoving in the ground
All alone
And he cried out to the darkness
For a sympathetic soul
But nobody came

Brought back to life
But robbed of emotion
Feeling no love
For the ones he once knew

Missing a soul
But strong and determined
He found eternal life

Now he's here
Exploring every timeline
Walking every path
He kills for curiosity

Restoring and repeating
Driven by a force
The child who stole his soul

Kill or be killed
The law of the underground
Fear or be feared
The choice is on you
Kill or be killed
The memories misguiding your soul
With flowers of gold
You'll kill or be killed

Throughout the underground he hides
And in the corner of your eye
You'll see his twisted smile
Hear whispers in your mind
Together you could end it all
Repeat the other human's fall
Another tale from down below
Another flower takes your soul

Determination takes a hold of you
And now the world's no longer
His to command
Through every timeline
Every universe
He's seen it all
Knows how this story must end

Kill or be killed...

Turn them to dust once again
Here there's no trust in a friend
The memories misguiding your soul
With flowers of gold
You'll kill or be killed
Track Name: Delta Rune
Years ago
In forced retreat
We braved the ice and searing heat
Till we came to the place we now call home

Here below
Away from light
We suffer in eternal night
But we wait for the sign to bring us home

In these halls beneath the earth
We will struggle on and wait for the angel
Signs delivering our fate
When they descend on holy wings

And we live and die under skies of stone
The ruins on to the king's new home
To redeem us all and restore our lives
The prophecy decides
Delta rune

Years went past
Our sadness grew
We saw another meaning, too
That the angel could bring our final day

Living on
With no reply
We're withered by the march of time
And we turn into dust and fade away

In these halls beneath the earth...

And we live and die under skies of stone
The ruins on to the king's new home
To erase the world and to take our lives
The prophecy decides
Delta rune

The one who's seen the surface
Will reappear again
The underground will empty
Silence will remain
Angel of death or justice
Descending down from earth
To free us from our torment
Or from this mortal realm

Live and die under skies of stone
The ruins on to the king's new home
To redeem us all or to take our lives
The prophecy decides
In the end, the toll of the bell will sound
The final flight from the underground
To redeem us all or to take our lives
The prophecy decides
Delta rune

An angel of death or light
To end our eternal night
Rain fire into our tomb
The word of the delta rune
Track Name: Seven Human Souls
Humans live without
Compassion, love or hope
They'll never know the magic
Buried in our souls
There's weakness in their strength
Their souls' persistence after death
A power we can take from those
Who tread within our home

Without sight of the angel we're lost
We waste in the dark and then crumble to dust
In desperate hope, we all look to the king
To break down the walls from within

Seven human souls
Seven hearts to break against the wall
Force of those who fell
To fuse and free us all

From the underground
We'll rise again
To break down the barrier
And pay back their pain
Finally end these years untold
Return to the light
With seven human souls

Thousands of years ago
We wished upon the stars
They stole the sky from us
And left us in the dark
And we will not forget
We'll strike them down without regret
With seven souls in hand
We will retake what should be ours

Seven human souls...

From the underground...

Just beyond the garden
Where the golden flowers gleam
There behind the barrier
The souls of children dream

Lined up in their chamber
Still persisting after life
Six have been the sacrifice
With one more they'll combine

King Asgore will set us free
King Asgore will give us hope
Light our way from the underground
King Asgore will save us all

From the underground...

The king in the mountain
Holds all but one soul
He carries the weight of his sins on his back
Their lives for the fate of us all
Now the children of monsters are lost
He's reaping revenge for us all
Our years in the darkness
Will come to an end
We wait for the seventh to fall
To restart the war
Track Name: Of Man and Machine
I couldn't say
What I was truly feeling
Just knew I'd always been so
Helpless and wrong in my form
By chance I found her
And she showed me wonders
She worked her miracles
And from metal and magic
My life was reborn

Without shame
Without blame
Without apologies
To those who say
I can't be who I am

Her genius brings to life
What once was a dream
A perfect harmony
Of man and machine
To come alive inside
The body I desire
A shining star
To be eternally admired

Now beyond my wildest dreams
I'm shining
Want all the underground
To see me, a star in their eyes
Give the people what they want
I'll dazzle with my shine
I'll light their darkened spirits
Raise them high

Without shame...

Her genius brings to life...

Shining in the sun
The greatest spotlight of them all
The surface waits for me
I'll captivate them without war
I only need this human soul
To break out on my own
My dreams can't wait for anyone

Her genius brings to life...
From ghosts I rise
Becoming man and machine
To come alive inside...

Her genius brings to life...
Track Name: Lost Symbols
A monument shining in dusk
Mechanical wonder in neon and steel
A fountain of energy, magic and light
Where silent I disappeared

Beware the broken man
Who speaks in cryptic hands
To those who stare into the code
And understand the signs
The fragments of his soul
Are scattered throughout time
Shining through the fractures left behind

Lost symbols in the underground
They're waiting for those
Who would dare to discover
Lost mysteries that can't be found
Disguise a soul now exchanged for another
Scattered in the threads of time
Torn apart yet still alive
Watching you and speaking through
The symbols left behind

Roll the dice and you'll see the signs
Disappearing souls you almost recognize
As you approach
The missing words you'll hear

Sixty-six is the key to me
So come and open up
The door that few can see
For just a second the fragments show me
Then I disappear

Beware the broken man...

Lost symbols in the underground...

Timelines shifting
Twining, twisting
Ending just to start again
Sins undone
Determination
Saved in time, transcending death

Lost symbols in the underground...

Track Name: Save Our Souls
Seeds of madness grow in this void
Chara, chaos, Asriel in soul
Pages gone, realities destroyed
Wall of nightmares rises up
Facing him alone

In his world you'll feel
Determination's influence
In the end you'll see
There is no god but him
Let your soul embrace the void

Here in his world, unearthly void
He is god and you're his toy
And he forms himself from nightmares
More than humans could withstand
Far outside memory's confines
Broken segments out of time
Save the children
Call their hearts back to your hand
Stand to save our souls

No return to rules of the game
Determination now belongs to him alone
Overwrite your chances to be saved
Omega transformation, power from the souls

As you call to the souls
Lost in the darkness
Anger dissolves
They come to your aid
With the strength of the souls
Fighting through madness
Lost hearts could be reclaimed

Here in his world, unearthly void...

And now there's no way out
He'll tear you to pieces
All over again
You'll writhe and shout out loud
You cried to the darkness
But nobody came

A fight to bring back time
The souls of the children
And all that we know
Until you fall and die
You're facing down
The madness of his soul

Here in his world, unearthly void...
Track Name: Voices from the Underground
A last goodbye and I'm ready to leave
How I've waited for this day to come
See the sun again
Resplendent in the sky
The power hidden in one human soul
Became our angel from above
Broke the spell
That kept the monsters
From the light

Millenniums of the dark
We suffered now are gone
Now the light has come
We're standing at the edge
The rise of a new dawn

Voices from the underground
Can you hear the sound of our souls
As we awake from the night
Jubilant and glorious
Each and every one of us
Breaking through
And back to the light

The seal of the monsters
Is shattered
And silence remains

A bright new future
Lies ahead of us all
Will you come and
Lead us on our way
Through the golden age
Of peace that's now begun
Now there's a whole
New world to explore
No dire memory can take away
All the light
And the sound
And the life
That we live in the sun

Determination kept a hold on you
It lives within your soul
And led the monsters to the sun

Voices from the underground...
Centuries' shadows fade away
The sun greets the end
Of the age of darkness
The seal of the monsters
Is shattered
We're finally home

From the moment we rise
Till the end of all time
We all welcome the golden light of day
Nothing stands in the way
Of our hopes and our dreams

Voices from the underground...
Centuries' shadows fade away...
Track Name: Asriel Must Be Saved
[i. Reunion]

[Asriel]
Here we are
He fell to this place
The human who started
This tale of the cave
Now here I stand
And I will remain
Preventing their heartbreak
All over again

So go now and leave me behind
You reached through the darkness to find

The tale
Concealed by the facade
The story told at last
The truth of it all

All the souls of the mountain
Left from the night
But still you refused to go
You appeared to me here
In the glow of the light
From flowers that caught my soul

[Frisk]
I followed his heart through the caves
To learn the words of the tale still untold
He fought back the first child who fell
And he learned you'll kill or be killed

But now I see his face
His living form
His true self revealed once again
It hurts
Still even though I know
A child without a soul
Can never be saved

The prince of the underground
Turned me away
And left me no choice but to go
An innocent soul who
Accepted his fate
To vanish in time

But I can't let him fade
Give him up and obey
Release this trace of his soul
Though the tale's at its end
I must walk the path again
It's not enough to save the world

[ii. Salvation]

Time has come
The end of darkness
Rising from the underground
War averted, light restored
By the angel of salvation
Now - as I watch
The souls emerging
Climbing back to life again
I remain determined still
That I'll find the chance to save him

Still every timeline
I could see or comprehend
Led me the same way
And to here I would return
But there's no way
That I can let this be the end
It's not enough to save the world

Lost in the night
But still he survives
I'll tear apart time
So his heart never dies
As they cast off their chains
Just one soul remains
Asriel must be saved

Walk against the streams of time
And try to find some other way
Made my choice to start things over
Rending worlds, shattering timelines
Break apart the happy ending
Start the cycle once again
Every path will fade away
But the one that's laid before us

Still every timeline...
Lost in the night...

There is a power
Human hearts hold deep inside
I felt it when I fought him
And my soul refused to die
The will to keep living
The resolve to change fate
The strength to survive
Determination

I will find the final soul
If it takes a million tries
I'll keep on coming back
Exploring the fractures in time
Make my choice, reset the world
Discard the freedom I had earned
To find true endings for us all
For us all

Still every timeline...
It's not enough
It's not enough to save the world
No!

[iii. Trepidation]

I've kept them trapped
Inside the cycle kept unseen
I'm losing count of times
I've pushed away their dreams
And as I hesitate
They start to realize
I feel them watching
Accusation in their eyes

As images bleed over timelines
Their hearts plead to stop my pursuit
Accept living on in the light
But I refuse

Cause in the twilight
I see the cavern where he fell
And I'm determined
To find an ending for us all

Here on the surface
They have the ending that they all deserve
Can my conscience let me walk it back
And steal the sun again

And the buried souls draw me back before
Through the underground I will walk once more
And the dust of time rises up again
Choices realign and the tale begins

Can one last life stolen by golden flowers
Finally return to the light
And his soul emerge on the surface
With us all
With the buried souls

[iv. Determination]

I woke too late to change the course
Of his life and final fate
Need to break through time
Before the cave where I always wake
Draw the power that haunts these halls
Where the broken man once fell
Trust my soul to time
And finally rewrite the tale

Turn the timeline back still further
Take the place of the first child to fall
Every repetition makes me stronger
I will fuel my obsession and follow the call
Break the rules of the timeline and rescue them all

I feel determination
Beating in my soul
Through the impossible
I'll try to break once more
The tale is over
Yet the pages turn again
It's not enough to save the world

Lost in the night...
The prince of the monsters
Remember his name

I won't let time turn
While his soul still burns
Asriel must be saved
