Re: Considering Frodo and the Ring...

Thank you, Diem Kieu. No, I had never heard of this song. What a close fit the lyrics are. Was it actually written to Frodo and the Ring? This stanza in particular struck me, scrolling back through the book texts, images and poem of Jan's in the post:

Will I win my freedom if they
kill me for wanting you?
Maybe arms of hell will hound me,
just as long as I remain confined,
I will be completed when they
kill me for wanting you!

How Frodo was tormented, how bravely and doggedly he bore the burden of Sauron's Ring.

I am not a fan of rock or pop, so I don't think I'll listen to this song sung. But thank you for sending the text! It's not your usual song text. The ideas and emotions in it are thoughtfully developed.

Re: Considering Frodo and the Ring...

*Sigh...* Yes! Sadly, I don't think the members of Disturbed had Frodo running around in those wild heads of theirs when they wrote this song. I guess their dark, well-honed lyric-writing skills hit a ring-bearer's heart by (un)happy chance! I'm glad you two are so appreciative of my little posts! :)

Re: Considering Frodo and the Ring...

It might do for someone who makes Frodo videos.
