Foundations of Stone
by Howard Shore

Mettanna
Irkat-lukhud ma
katabrikihu
Ulfat-atam ma
tanakhi uduhu
bin-nât aznân tarsisi

Bazar udu agânî-furkhîn
Gurd!
Ma nîd sakhu!
Ma satf unkhai!
Atkât zatagrafizu
Zatablugi sulluzu

Mettanna
Nárendur!
An mauya mahtie.
Mettanna!

ENGLISH:
'No shaft of light
Can breach it
No breath of air
Comes from it
Only an endless dark rises

Deep from the beginnings
Of the world.
Have fear.
Do not look down
Nor step too close
The silence will take you.
It will swallow you whole.'
