7. Death

What's the point of living?
Life is just a living hell
I envy people who are dying:
Leaving the world; their cell.

Maybe death is our gift
Or just the next adventure.
But I would cause the fatal rift
So I could take that venture.

There's nothing that I have seen
That could repay the debt
No one, no where I have been
No body I have met

Only in death can I find peace
And give the balance due
If only I could cut the lease
And leave this pain to you

(Realtions to LotR in this are very obsure, I'm afraid, and it's hard to describe them. The obvious one is "maybe death is just our gift", and that line is refering to the Silmarillion, but I'm not sure I can describe the rest of them.)
