I feel like I could keep going forever when I listen to this. The iron will and determination of the dwarves, the cold of mountains, the world thick ahead and the fellows stout behind.. All forward, to the promise of success.

Is that what you feel from that song? Maybe I'm just in a bad place... It struck me more as the result of a burnt earth campaign - onward we trudge, because there's nothing left for us here.

It chimes of longing for a home they'll never see. It makes me glad I still have a home to go to, even though I miss it terribly, and gives me courage to endure.

You're both right, I suppose I just put a slightly more positive spin on it (my optimism can annoy people with its persistence). They must know their time isn't long. They must know that all of the stories they relive and homes they return to are but distant memories. Yet they keep moving forward, because a combination of stubborn pride and brash confidence propel them ever-forward. Those are the things I can relate to, at least. ^^;
