In the hands of the last high king among exiles of middle-earth From the sea to the mountains I carved a free path after the War of Wrath The first to distrust the deceiver of men my wise master a radiant star Alone of Eldar forbid Annatar Wise king lose not thy grip on me For my blade more pure than snowfall and my sting is keener than ice hold me fast among thine enemies For I am the Spear - cold Aiglos I saw Westernesse fall beneath the wave and the last of the faithful sail forth With Gondor and Arnor I joined in the war a last alliance of elves and men I bring cold death to Orc and Goblin From the gathering at Amon Sul We saw victory's ransom on the battle plain Seven years of siege at dark tower For my blade more pure than snowfall and my sting is keener than ice hold me fast among thine enemies For I am the Spear - cold Aiglos In the hands of the last high king among brave Dwarves, Elves and Men Though against me, none could withstand I fell from Gil-galad's hand For my blade was brighter than snowfall and my sting was keener than ice he held me fast among his enemies For I am the Spear - cold Aiglos

The Wanderer 04:12
Upon an icy sea I sailed far from home My kinsmen slain, serf and thane I am a wanderer alone I buried long ago In earth my lord and king Now all are gone - that once I knew And now alone my soul I sing Carried by winter’s icy breeze Wanderer wandering wintery seas In dreams the mead-hall shines The wine and honey flow Then I awake - to find myself In frost, and hail, and wind , and snow This middle earth so bright Now withers and decays And I must wait in silence great For warmer, kinder, happier days Carried by winter’s icy breeze Wanderer wandering wintery seas Like dust into the air All that lives must die But in the heart of Father God Therein all hope and faith must lie

In ages past the maker Lay me down in the mountain Created light within me The Hands of a King to Daylight bring Ten Thousand Sparks of Rainbow Light Tried in the Fire of a Dragons Might The Heart of the Mountain I remain The precious stone they famed me Ten Thousand Sparks of Rainbow Light Saved at last by the Thief in the Night On the Heart of the King I remain The Arkenstone they named me

The King Beneath the Mountains, The King of Carven Stone, The Lord of Silver Fountains Shall come into his own! His crown shall be upholden, His harp shall be restrung, His halls shall echo golden To songs of yore re-sung. The woods shall wave on mountains And grass beneath the sun; His wealth shall flow as fountains And the rivers golden run. The streams shall run in gladness, The lakes shall shine and burn, All sorrow fail and sadness At the Mountain-king's return!

lyrics In the dawn of the world When the sun first set sail And the Eldar realms unfurled Aelin-uial Twilight dreams for the elves Hidden deep their halls to delve But unquiet in his heart Turgon searched for realms apart Hidden from the dark lord's art Came wise words by the sea In Vinyamar leave thee A helm, mail and sword To the hidden valley Strong city on a hill In the hidden valley White with dazzling halls… Gondolin In the sun glittering By the moon shimmering Snow-white birds over fountains sing On the hidden rock water rings Gleaming marble and carved stone Singing rain of crystal shone In the tower Eldar King on his throne Trees of Silver and of Gold As in Valinor of old Yet their doom in fire foretold In the hidden valley Treason wakes in thy walls In the hidden valley Doom of Mandos calls… Gondolin A prophecy for the king Leave the pride of thy making From Nevrast last hope will bring The helm, mail & sword Borne by a blessed lord Signs from the sea by the king ignored In the hidden valley Fire wakes in thy walls In the hidden valley Great was thy fall Gondolin

Side by Side 04:17
Come with me into the night Through the fields on our flight Stand aside if your sword hand is lame We ride tonight into glory and fame Far away… oh so far away… Into a far country On we ride into the dream Through darkened wood and icy stream Valleys deep and mountains high In a red sunrise our banners fly Far away… oh so far away… Into a far country A far country So raise an ale and bid farewell There'll be songs to sing and tales to tell We'll ride with speed into the fight And our swords will sing…side by side Side by side we ride Side by side Side by side we ride Ravens gather the circling sky Cackling their song for men to die Across the field a thundering sound Warhorse charge pounding the ground Far away… oh so far away… Into a far country A far country
