Keepers Of The Flame

from by Adversary

lyrics

Trials and adversity
The weaker their will, the greater their dependency
When darkness is darkest and the foundation shakes
It's always surprising how little effort it takes

To sway their thoughts, to be received 
They must always be humble, they must always believe
To sow the seeds, to justify 
They must always be willing to relent to the lie
 
For ages we have stoked the fires
Compelling the masses to fulfill all of our desires
When saying their prayers it is to us whom they speak
It's always so trivial all the things that they seek
 
Like a shepherd tends his sheep
A watchful eye we must keep
To reign them in from all their sin
Completely oblivious to the world they live in
 
We are the keepers of the flame
You are the ash over which we reign
We mold for you reality
We are the eyes through which you see
 
The greatest of you all are we who brace your fall
Content to be led astray, we've watched as you waste away
Your idle minds so frail, believing in childish stories and tales
For we, the authors of all you've known, sit atop a burning throne
 
A day will come to pass when you all will know our names
A promise of deliverance consumed by flames
 
The eyes through which you see
 
Silence and complacency
The less that they know, the more they'll assume they are free
When questions need answers and the truth is too much
It's always amusing when the flesh and flame touch

To have our way, to gain their trust
They must always be driven by their fear and their lust
To keep them calm, to satisfy
They must never acknowledge that their life is a lie
 
Like a shepherd tends his sheep
A watchful eye we must keep
To reign them in from all their sin
Completely oblivious to the world they live in
 
We are the keepers of the flame
You are the ash over which we reign
We mold for you reality
We are the eyes through which you see
