Persona 5 OST 100 – Rivers In the Desert

Persona 5 OST 100 – Rivers In the Desert


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 last ace in a lost hand
A heartbeat for a tin man
Oasis in a singed land
I’m keeping the balance, but I’m standing
On razor’s edge now
Move quick or my life is over
One strike, just a feint, then, i’m out of his field of vision
Don’t ask why I’m ready, but I’m ready to strike them down now
A chance at a new start, there’s no time for indecision
A river in a dry land
The last ace in a lost hand
When the hope of new beginnings burned our feet
Now we need it:
A heartbeat for a tin man
Oasis in a singed land
Remind us what we’re here for:
Creating new life
Creating Rivers in the Desert
My heart is a furnace, hot as hell in my world of conflict
One goal is what keeps me going
Take back what I lost to
The bosses of greed and fear, yeah
Don’t ask why I’m ready, but I’m ready to take
them down now
The time for a new start,
is constantly drawing nearer
A river in a dry land
The last ace in a lost hand
When the hope of new beginnings burned our feet
Now we need it:
A heartbeat for a tin man
Oasis in a singed 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 and mind
Can I find, some time in
Rivers in a dry land
The last ace in a lost hand
When the hope of new beginnings burned our feet
Now we need it:
A heartbeat for a tin man
Oasis in a singed land
Remind us what we’re here for:
Creating new life
Creating rivers in the desert

100 thoughts on “Persona 5 OST 100 – Rivers In the Desert”

  1. After having to deal with three bosses in a row you finally get to go back to reality, prepare the calling card then do ANOTHER three boss fights in a row.

    I was genuinely exhausted after this portion of the game

  2. Personally, the best boss fight in an RPG ever. I wanted to kick Shido's ass the entire game, then I get an epic showdown with a bad ass song playing over it. Yes please! I'm ready to kick this fuckers ass again in P5 The Royal

  3. A black and white van filled with teens in unusual costumes drives through a desert. Eventually a fortress looms in the distance.

    "For real?! We're doing this?" Ryuji asks.
    Akira solemnly nods. "They deserve to be free too. We need to steal the unjust hearts of these corrupt officials."
    The gang steps out, and the van transforms back into an anthropomorphic cat.

    "Area 51, we've come to take your treasure."

  4. Me In Mementos, Chilling: I like Chests.
    Nobody:
    Legit Nobody:

    Reaper: Appears
    Me: I'm so gonna win
    Reaper: OBSERVE
    **The whole party gets 1 Shotted**
    Twins: Don't Be So Cocky…..

  5. 1:59 sounds so fierce and strong. It really encapsulates the teams efforts to take down whatever stands in their way. Truly fitting for fighting such corrupt 'individuals.'

  6. game: you beat the holy grail!
    me: YAY!!! I BEAT PERSONA 5-
    game: the holy grail is a god that you need to fight.
    me: …WHAT THE FU-

  7. A river in a Dire land

    When I hop on new beginnings

    Im hoping for a demon

    Remind us how a hero creates new life

    A heartbeat of a demon

  8. "I PLAYED COLLEGE VOLLEYBALL, YOU KNOW!"
    "At some cushy Tokyo school!"
    "TRY UNIVERSITY OF KYUSHU! COULDA GONE PRO IF I HADN'T JOINED THE JSDF!"

  9. What I hate the most about this song is how desperately it screams to be played at EVO. “A River in a Dry Land?” “It’s now or its never, and I’ve got to make my decision?” I know Joker’s strangling competitive, but we NEEEEEEED this!!

  10. Is it called Rivers in the Desert because metaphorically, society is the desert and since water is scarce in deserts, the phantom thieves are the rivers trying to rebel against society? Just a thought that came to mind.

  11. "You killed my Mom and stole her research!"

    "You killed my Father!"

    "You turned your own son into a monster!"

    Joker: "You… You got me EXPELLED! "

    Edit: This is a joke, Joker is definitely justified.

  12. There are two kinds of people:

    -Joke/reference in the context of the only dungeon this theme appears in

    -"GO TO BED"

    …You can tell which ones have gotten to this point in the game.

  13. The thing I love about this song is the very beginning reminds me of an alarm almost as if the thieves have been spotted and it's time for the ultimate showdown

  14. While phantom thieves fighting the control god "Igor" aresene evolved to The demon lord him self THE GOD DAMN DEVIL if a god being bad the demon lord will punish the corrupt god

  15. If you don't dance while listening to this, you are either soulless, or a much stronger person than me. In a guess the former.

  16. If I ever decide to play Persona 5 (I'm a little nervous since I don't do well in most time management games), I will be fighting Caroline and Justine (and hearing this sweet song). Those twins are going DOWN. 😉

  17. Me and my stupid fanfics (This comment)
    Lightning:NECROMANCER SLAY THEM!
    Demon:WINTER, LITE EM UP!!!!
    My friends:I LOVE FAN FICTIONAL ROLE PLAY!!!!!!!!!
