(ŠJan-Peer Hartmann 1993-1994)
[lyrics by Tolkien]
Artist Comment: This is really an old one. I wrote the music in 1993 or 1994, but never thought of using it with the Fauns. When I played it to Paul some time in 2001, he suggested that we should play the song at the acoustic gig in Poland on the anniversary of J.R.R. Tolkien's 110th birthday. Although we actually did not perform it that day, 'The Road' was premiered some months later in Berlin, and from that day on people kept asking us whether the song was on our cd or when we would record it.
