Rivers in the Desert is a boss theme in Persona 5. It is composed by Shoji Meguro, lyrics by Benjamin Franklin and sung by Lyn. A shortened instrumental version is played during the first round against Shadow Shido, the full version is played in the second round and later against the Holy Grail and Caroline and Justine. This song is incorrectly attributed as the "final boss battle" theme in the staff roll.

"Desert" being prominently featured in the lyrics is sung as /dɪˈzəɹt/ instead of /ˈdɛzɚt/ in the song even though the former is for the verb which describes "abandoning duty/obligation" instead of the noun "barren land".

Lyrics Edit

  • The official lyrics have not been provided by Atlus yet. The following is copied by ears by fans.

It's now, or it's never
And I've got to make my decision
This time, it could be my moment
Is this a mirage, or a chance to fulfill my mission?

A river in a dry land
the laughters in a lost head
A heartbeat for a demon
Oasis in a strange land

I'm giving the balance, better find them, on the razor's edge now
Real quick, or my life is over
One strike disobeying them, I'm out of his real dark vision
Don't ask why I'm ready, but I'm ready to strike them down now
And just at a new start, there's no time for indecision

A river in a dry land
the laughters in a lost head
When the hope of new beginnings burn our feet, now we need it
A heartbeat for a demon
Oasis in a strange land
Remind us what we're here for: Creating new life
Creating rivers in the desert

My heart is a furnace
How to settle it, my world of conflict?
Once it goes, what keeps me going?
Take back what I lost to the bosses of greed and fury
Don't ask why I'm ready, but I'm ready to take them down now
That time for a new start, it's constantly drawing nearer

A river in a dry land
the laughters in a lost head
When the hope of new beginnings burn our feet, now we need it
A heartbeat for a demon
Oasis in a strange land
Remind us what we're here for: Creating new life
Creating rivers in the desert

When a cool drop of water's all I need
Gotta clear my head of anger and greed
A place to refresh
Heart of mine, can't I find some time in...

Rivers in a dry land
the laughters in a lost head
When the hope of new beginnings burn our feet, now we need it
A heartbeat for a demon
Oasis in a strange land
Remind us what we're here for: Creating new life
Creating rivers in the desert
