"Into the Unknown" is a song sung by Elsa in Frozen II.

The song has been described as the film's "answer to 'Let It Go'." Songwriter Kristen Anderson-Lopez stated of the song that "For the first time, Elsa gets to say what she wants in the song. And she takes her first step metaphorically and physically into a bigger world. It represents her growing up and taking responsibility."[1]

The song speaks of both Elsa's reluctance and urge to follow the mysterious voice that is calling to her. The artist Aurora provides the singing voice of the strange voice that is calling to Elsa.

A version of the song performed by Panic! At the Disco is played during the films' end credits.

The chant sung by the voice was inspired by the musical motif "Dies irae" and was inspired by the art of kulning - the idea that Elsa was being called like cattle.[2]

Lyrics

Voice:
Ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah, ah ah ah ah

Elsa:
I can hear you but I won't
Some look for trouble
While others don't
There's a thousand reasons
I should go about my day
And ignore your whispers
Which I wish would go away, oh oh

Voice:
Ah ah, ah ah

Elsa:
Oh

Voice:
Ah ah ah ah, ah

Elsa:
You're not a voice
You're just a ringing in my ear
And if I heard you, which I don't
I'm spoken for, I fear
Everyone I've ever loved is here within these walls
I'm sorry, secret siren, but I'm blocking out your calls
I've had my adventure, I don't need something new
I'm afraid of what I'm risking if I follow you

Into the unknown
Into the unknown
Into the unknown

Voice:
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

Elsa:
Ah

Voice:
Ah ah ah ah, ah, ah

Elsa:
What do you want? 'Cause you've been keeping me awake
Are you here to distract me so I make a big mistake?
Or are you someone out there who's a little bit like me?
Who knows deep down I'm not where I'm meant to be?
Every day's a little harder as I feel my power grow
Don't you know there's part of me that longs to go

Into the unknown?
Into the unknown
Into the unknown

Voice:
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah

Elsa:
Whoa oh oh
Are you out there?
Do you know me?
Can you feel me?
Can you show me?
Ah ah ah ah

Voice:
Ah ah ah ah

Elsa:
Ah ah ah ah

Voice:
Ah ah ah ah

Elsa and Voice:
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah

Elsa: (Voice):
Where are you going?
Don't leave me alone
How do I follow you (Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah)
Into the unknown? (Ah, ah, ah!)

Ah ah oh oh oh
Ah ah oh oh oh oh oh oh
Into the unknown
Into the unknown
Into the unknown
Ah ah ah ah ah

I can hear you but I won't
Some look for trouble
While others don't
There's a thousand reasons
I should go about my day
And ignore your whispers
Which I wish would go away, ah ah oh oh
Oh oh

You're not a voice
You're just a ringing in my ear
And if I heard you, which I don't
I'm spoken for I fear
Everyone I've ever loved is here within these walls
I'm sorry, secret siren, but I'm blocking out your calls
I've had my adventure, I don't need something new
I'm afraid of what I'm risking if I follow you

Into the unknown
Into the unknown
Into the unknown

Ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah oh oh

What do you want? 'Cause you've been keeping me awake
Are you here to distract me so I make a big mistake?
Or are you someone out there who's a little bit like me?
Who knows deep down I'm not where I'm meant to be?
Every day's a little harder as I feel your power grow
Don't you know there's part of me that longs to go

Into the unknown?
Into the unknown
Into the unknown

Ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah
Oh oh oh

Are you out there?
Do you know me?
Can you feel me?

Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah

Where are you going?
Don't leave me alone
How do I follow you
Into the unknown?
Whoo!
