"War of Wrath" as written by and Andre/kuersch Olbrich....
The field is lost
Everything is lost
The black one has fallen from the sky and the towers in ruins lie
The enemy is within, everywhere
And with him the light, soon they will be here
Go now, my lord, while there is time
There are places below

And you know them too
I release thee, go
My servant you'll be for all time

As you command
My king

I had a part in everything
Twice I destroyed the light and twice I failed
I left ruin behind me when I returned
But I also carried ruin with me
She, the mistress of her own lust

    General CommentOstensibly, about the fall of Morgoth and the rise of Sauron as the Enemy of the Valar. The ruin that Morgoth carries of probably the Silmarils.

    General Comment"I left ruin behind me when I returned
    But I also carried ruin with me
    She, the mistress of her own lust "

    The ruin he left behind is the destruction of the two trees, and the ruin he carried with him was Ungoliant. "She the mistress of her own lust" is almost a direct quotation from the Silmarillion.
