"Lusus Naturae" is a song from the RWBY: Grimm Eclipse video game soundtrack, released as part of the Horde Mode update on October 13th, 2016. It is incorporated in the RWBY: Volume 4 Soundtrack.[1][2]

It was written and performed by Jeff Williams. The full song plays over the video game credits (accessible from the main menu). An instrumental version of the song is used as background for the main menu.

It is presumably written from the point of view of Doctor Merlot, the main antagonist of RWBY: Grimm Eclipse.

LyricsEdit

Gnarled and mangled
Warped deformed
They see nightmares
A mutant swarm
I see beauty
Underneath
I see promise
In nature's freak

A mystery of blood and bone
Soul-less, origin unknown
Twisted devil villains lost in time
Mindless born of bubbling ooze
Intelligence I will infuse
A curse upon the world but now you're mine

I will raise you up de-
sign the perfect beast
Elevate the savage
Use you to bring peace

They don't know
They don't understand
There's a goal
It's my master plan

These simple minded fools just see my plans abstruse
I'll give the monster's life a use

Awaken my brood
Today you will rise
I've given you life
My lusus naturae
Open your eyes

Created in a netherworld
Into this realm you were hurled
But scientifically misunderstood
I will decode and knowledge gain
Your mysteries I will explain
I'll lucubrate and change you for the good

The fools they've placed in power
Try to halt my dreams
They will fail to stop me
Grimm I will redeem

I'm your god
I will make you grow
You're my own
twisted embryo

They call me sick obsessed
A madman with no proof
In triumph I will show the truth

Awaken my brood
Today you will rise
I've given you life
My lusus naturae
Open your eyes

When evolution fails
Science will prevail
What nature warped
I will restore
I will love
What all abhor

They call me sick obsessed
A madman with no proof
I'll give the monster's life a use

Awaken my brood
Today you will rise
I've given you life
My lusus naturae
Open your eyes
