I come from far awayrnMy boots don't know this groundrnBut they know it's realrnIt doesn't take too longrnFor this road to becomernA battlefieldrnrnAnd before I let one more fire go outrnUnderstand that I won't give one inch of groundrnFrom beneath, yours and my feetrnWhatever the price, happens to bernrnI may not be the keeper of the flamernBut I am the keeperrnrnBeauty and truth collidernWhere love meets genocidernWhere laughter meets fearrnrnConfusion all aroundrnAs I try to feed these mouthsrnthat have never known singingrnrnAnd before I let one more tear hit the groundrnI will be the one standing between you and the soundrnof the rounds, echoing outrnout of the dark, the smoke and the sparkrnAimed at the heart of the flamernI am the keeperrnrnI cannot see the lightrnAt the end of the tunnel tonightrnMy eyes are wearyrnrnAnd before I let one more life get erasedrnFrom the ashes I will rise for you and the ghostrnOf the names, faces and framesrnThe love and the painrnFor you I remainrnThough I'm not worthy ofrnBeing the keeper of the flamernrnI am the keeperrnYeahhhhrnI am the keeperrnooooohhhhh oooohhhhhhh ooooohhhhhh
