Now Flightless Wings begins in a rather sad manner as you realize that Dyluck is now dead, and the Sprite has left forever to the world of magic. However, the tune completely changes around 54 second in, and it becomes a happy song as the Mana Beast's remains fall to the earth as soft snow. You then watch the credits roll as the boy and girl visit all the places they came across in their journey. Before the credits finish, the music switches over to The Second Truth From the Left.

Now Flightless Wings plays a second time in the game after the Boy returns to Potos. The Boy heads back to the river where he originally found the sword and returns it.

This song is track 42 on the official soundtrack.


The American and Japanese soundtrack titles have the same meaning, but use different words.
