(2001 Gary Hughes)

A stones throw after midnight
Standing in the rain
Just echoes of a heartbeat
As lonely as the grave

The silence rules the halflight
With deafening resound
As the iridescent moonlight
Falls softly to the ground,

If only for a moment
There's peace on Middle Earth
'Till stepping from shadows,
They arrived without a word,

Don't make a sound; we're all out of miracles,
I shake with fear and watch the wraiths of the ring appear,
They're reaching out, They're tireless and cynical,
I smell the death and know the wraiths of the ring are here,
They know that the ring is near

A locked door should be airtight
And pull the shutters down,
Better pray that in the daylight,
We can turn this world around,

We tip toe in the footsteps
Of those who went before,
The weary and the breathless
Deny what fate befalls

A few souls in the darkness
Are faithful to the cause,
So we gather round the embers
Of a dream worth fighting for,

Don't make a sound; we're all out of miracles,
I shake with fear and watch the wraiths of the ring appear,
They're reaching out, They're tireless and cynical,
I smell the death and know the wraiths of the ring are here,
They know that the ring is near

A 'wrong move' from a graveside,
And no one dares to breathe,
We would die than ever question
The paths of true belief,

Don't make a sound; we're all out of miracles,
I shake with fear and watch the wraiths of the ring appear,
They're reaching out, They're tireless and cynical,
I smell the death and know the wraiths of the ring are here,
They know that the ring is near

Don't make a sound; we're all out of miracles,
I shake with fear and watch the wraiths of the ring appear,
They're reaching out, They're tireless and cynical,
I smell the death and know the wraiths of the ring are here,
They know that the ring is near

Don't make a sound; we're all out of miracles,
I shake with fear and watch the wraiths of the ring appear,
They're reaching out, They're tireless and cynical,
I smell the death and know the wraiths of the ring are here,
They know that the ring is near
