When you walk through a storm,
Hold your head up high,
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At the end of the storm, there's a golden sky
And the sweet, silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on,
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone.
You'll never walk alone.
The poem partially serves as a hint for how to traverse Crisis, telling the player to "walk on, walk on," alluding to the invisible bridges throughout the dungeon.
Background and Inspiration Edit
You'll Never Walk Alone is a song from the musical Carousel by Rodgers & Hammerstein. The lyrics were written by Oscar Hammerstein II.
The song was included in version 6.5 with Crisis and was chosen for its references to storms and wind and for its comforting, uplifting message. Crisis was originally the tenth and last of the Ruptured Towers, but was changed to the ninth late in the production of 6.5. The poem was intended to end the Ruptured Towers on a positive note. In the final version of 6.5, the Ruptured Towers end with Rage and are ultimately more open-ended than if they ended with Crisis.
