From the Album:
* Keeper of the flame

Daylight gone, nighttime come
I hear the executioners song & I, I say my prayer
The colour of darkness, wages of sin
Crime of innocence
A case of doubt on your hands
I say my prayer
Refrein:
I remember when I used to run free
Without a judge - without a jury
& the world was mine - all mine
Yeah, all the little things mean a lot
When emptiness is all you've got on your mind
Doin' time. I say my prayer, say my prayer
Soul in chains, heart on ice
Freedom pays a higher price than love
I say my prayer
The colour of blindness, shade of a skin
In the eyes of a witness, makes me fold my hands
And say my prayer
Refrein:
I remember when I used to run free
Without a judge - without a jury
& the world was mine - all mine
Yeah, all the little things mean a lot
When emptiness is all you've got on your mind
Doin' time, doin' time
And you say your prayer, while there's nothin' left
There's nothin' more to expect
And you say your prayer to yourself and nobody else
Why don't you trust me
Daylight gone, nighttime come
I hear the executioners song & I, I say my prayer
Two steps up, nine steps down
One way ticket, ten feet underground
I say my prayer...
