Song parody based on Closer to Fine, the Indigo Girls Can't Post

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. –Gandalf the Grey, FOTR.

FRODO’S BURDEN (Closer to Fine, the Indigo Girls*)

I’m tryin’ to tell you something ‘bout my life,
Maybe give me insight between Dark and Light.
As Gandalf said, all for you to do
With the time that fate has given you
Is yours to decide, after all. (yeah)

Well Darkness has a hunger that’s insatiable,
Its power makes the Light side hard to hear.
The One Ring’s wrapped around me like a blanket.
I try to stay myself until I sank it
In fire where it was forged.

I went with a gardener,
We went to the mountain,
We looked for the chamber,
Its fire like a fountain.
There’s more than one ending to this quest, Sam,
It stands upon a razor line.
(The less I stroke this wheel) The less I stroke this wheel within my fingertips,
The closer I am to fine.
The closer I am to fine.

I brought with me a phial-glass from Galadriel
That could light my way in places where all other lights would fail.
She showed me a mirror, the lidless Eye was flaming,
I was warned of the others, the one who would betray me.
I said take the Ring. She said: If that were mine,
In the Dark Lord’s place, a Queen!

I went with a gardener,
We went to the mountain,
We looked for the chamber,
Its fire like a fountain.
There’s more than one ending to this quest, Sam,
It stands upon a razor line.
(The less I clutch and stroke) The less I clutch this circle in my fingertips,
The closer I am to fine.
The closer I am to fine.

(instrumental)

I ran to Sammath Naur, there at the end,
To seek solace from this burden, and respite for my friends.
I struggled with the shadow in my weakened, tainted soul,
Twice as tortured as I’d been the night before,
I claimed the Ring belonged to me.

I went with a gardener,
We went to the mountain,
We looked for the chamber,
Its fire like a fountain.

And I fought with a creature,
We fought in the mountain,
He took on my burden,
And fell to the fountain.

Yeah I go with the gardener,
We run from the flow-out,
At the end of all things started,
We’re airborne from the pull-out.

There’s more than one ending to this quest, Sam,
And I feel it’s come to mine.
(The sooner from this world) The sooner from this world my final voyage,
The closer I am to fine.
The closer I am to fine.
The closer I am to fine.
