THE KEEPER OF THE KEYS  
     
  I hear her voice
She calls to me
I know she's near
But I cannot see
Through prison walls
That come between
Her dreams of freedom and the real world
Where her face is never seen

All the king's horses and all his men
Are fearful of the power that can come from book and pen
And all the changes there that can be found
And far away I hear a distant sound

It's rolling like thunder

Oh, shout it from the highest window, break down every door
And tell them you won't take it anymore
Show that you will never spend a lifetime on your knees
Rise up and catch the Keeper of the Keys

Oh, what ancient words can hold her here
But she's never heard
By men who claim the higher ground
It was always there for them to have and hold
Where woman's never found

All of the holy men who are at her door
Are frightened that their power will be lost forevermore
If she believes her freedom's on the way
And still it's getting louder every day

The sound of thunder

Oh, shout it from the highest window, break down every door
And tell them you won't take it anymore
Show that you will never spend a lifetime on your knees
Rise up and catch the Keeper of the Keys, rise up!

Tell them you will never spend a lifetime on your knees
And when you catch and kill the Keeper of the Keys

You will be free!
You will be free!
You will be free!
You will be free...
