The Abyss
(Featured in "Foundations of Stone")


Irkat-lukhud ma
Ulfat-atam ma
tanakhi uduhu
bin-nt aznn tarsisi

Bazar udu agn-furkhn
Ma nd sakhu!
Ma satf unkhai!
Atkt zatagrafizu
Zatablugi sulluzu

No shaft of light
Can breach it
No breath of air
Comes from it
Only an endless dark rises
Deep from the beginnings
Of the world
Have fear
Do not look down
Nor step too close
The silence will take you
It will swallow you whole

The Fight
(Featured in "Foundations of Stone")

(Quenya)    (English)
Cuiva Olrin    Awake Olrin
Nrendur    Servant of fire
Tira nottolya    Face your foe
Tulta tuolya    Summon forth your strength
An mauya mahtie    For you must fight
Ter oiomornie    Through endless dark
Ter ondicilyar    Through chasms of stone

Mettanna    To the end
Nurunna!    To the death!

Gollum's Song
performed by Emiliana Torrini

Where once was light
Now darkness falls
Where once was love
Love is no more
Don't say goodbye
Don't say I didn't try

These tears we cry
Are falling rain
For all the lies you told us
The hurt, the blame!
And we will weep to be so alone
We are lost
We can never go home

So in the end
I'll be what I will be
No loyal friend
Was ever there for me

Now we say goodbye
We say you didn't try

These tears you cry
Have come too late
Take back the lies
The hurt, the blame!

And you will weep
When you face the end alone
You are lost
You can never go home
You are lost
You can never go home


(Sindarin)    (English)
Naur vi eryn,    'The woods are burning,
lanc i dalaf.    the ground lies bare.
Mathach vi geven?    Do you feel it in the earth?
Nostach vi 'wilith?    Can you smell it in the air?
Mb le i nagor,    The war is upon you,
Bd gurth vi ngalad firiel.    Death moves in the fading light.
Dorthach vi mar han?    Are you part of this world?
Dagrathach go hain?    Will you join their fight?'
