The Lyrics

okay I apologize for how stupid this is but I hope you enjoy anyways and I really appreciate your comments : )
wondering through Emyn Muil
did we pass that rock a second time?
hoping that we will be more than
hobbitses that just gave up and died

we were meant to take the Ring to Mordor
are we lost again
somewhere in Middle Earth
somewhere in Middle Earth
we were meant to take the Ring to Mordor
are we lost again
somewhere in Middle Earth

dreaming about Hobbiton and
wishing we had bigger food supply
Frodo can see the Eye even when his eyes are open
we feel so bent and broken

we were meant to take the Ring to Mordor
are we lost again
somewhere in Middle Earth
somewhere in Middle Earth
we were meant to take the Ring to Mordor
are we lost again
somewhere in Middle Earth

all we want is to get this war over
all we want is to get this war over
and everything inside
screams for the Shire
yea-ea-ah

we were meant to take the Ring to Mordor
are we lost again
we we meant to take
we were meant to take the Ring

i laughed really hard on that, I love switchfoot and lord of the rings! i would just change the rushed line to "Frodo sees the eye even with his eyes open" other than that it's great!
