Lord Of The Rings – Pippin's Song lyrics

"Home is behind the world ahead
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadow to the edge of night
Until the stars are all alight

Mist and shadow
Cloud and shade

All shall fade
All shall fade"

    This is actually a hobbit mourning song. It talks about how the world you once were a part of is gone, and how you now you are off to go see Mandos. The fuirat verse of the song is about traveling to the afterlife, and the second verse is about how the world behind you fades. Pippin sings it because he knows that most of those men that Denathor sent out are going to die.

    This song to me is about stepping away from your home or the place you have been your entire life and explore the world/a new world. For me this song reminds me of the CW's The 100 and how the criminals end up away from home and on radioactive earth.
