4. Can He Feel the Ring Tonight?
Hobbits in cave with Faramir
Frodo: I can see what’s happening.
Frodo: And they don’t have a clue.
Frodo: He’ll find the Ring and here’s the bottom line:
He’ll take it and we’re screwed.
Frodo: The Ring is quite persuasive.
It’s magic’s everywhere
And when it meets the sons of Denethor,
Disaster’s in the air.
Can he feel the Ring tonight?
Does he know it’s near?
Steal the Ring for his own country’s use
Will this Faramir?
Faramir: He’s holding back, he’s hiding;
But what, I can’t decide.
What does he hold he won’t let on about?
What precious does he hide?
Ring: Oh, good, the Man is listening
At last, my chance arrives.
Now, Man, just think, with me you could protect
Your people’s homes and lives.
Will you heed my pull tonight?
You needn’t go too far.
There I am, in the halfling’s little hand,
Mere feet from where you are.
Frodo: Can he feel the Ring tonight?
Does he hear it’s call?
When he knows what lies within his grasp,
Will he stand or fall?
Sam: And if he takes the Ring tonight,
It can be assumed
Our carefree days in the Shire are hist’ry.
In short, our world is doomed.
