"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king."
~Aragorn's Verse, The Fellowship of the Ring


If the sky were to fall to the ground,
And the Earth were to crumble beneath you,
If I said the world was coming to an end,
Would you believe me then?

If the world were untouched,
And clouds stayed in the sky,
And plants stayed rooted in the Earth,
What would you do then?

Refrain -
Would you change your ways?
Would you accept your fate?
Or would you fight it,
As a true hero should?

Cities fall around you,
While you stand watching, helpless,
Would you find the courage,
To save strangers you don't know?

The cities still stand tall,
But crime rages all around you,
Without your life in danger,
Would you still save the show?

Refrain -
Would you change your ways?
Would you accept your fate?
Or would you fight it,
As a true hero should?

I got one line, then two, then the whole thing. I don't know where it came from. Thats the scary part.
