1. Once and Future...

We are the Walkers beneath the trees,
We are the Singers under the stars.
We are the Firstborn kin,
The Undying Ones.

We are dwellers under the mountains,
We are the hewers of rock and stone.
We are the Dwarven kind,
Keepers of Secrets.

We are the race of passion and pride,
We are the Builders, cities of stone.
We are Men, the Edain,
The Inheritors.

Where are you now, Walkers in starlight?
Where are you now, Smiths under mountain?
We all are gone from you,
Long since departed.

Look to your dreams and you will find us.
Look to lost memories, we shall awake.
We will return to you,
And sing in your heart.
