I am a symbol, I am a flame
I object to the objective
I won't play the game
I am a symbol, I am a flame
I'm resolved in my resistance
A witness to your wrongs
I am a symbol
I-I-I-I am a flame

I am a flame
I am a flame
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

One voice in the crowd is small
But if he speaks the truth
Then he speaks for all
All of us

One man they can grind to dust
But if he dies for love
Then he dies for us
All of us

So let my life be a song
And my that song carry on

I am a symbol, I am a flame
I object to the objective
I won't play the game
I am a symbol, I am a flame
I'm strong in my dying
A sign of what's to come
I am a symbol
I-I-I-I am a flame

I am a flame
I am a flame
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

With one idea from the human mind
Kingdoms come and kingdoms die
Just one

The first man through an easy kill
But no one's safe if we all stand still
None of us

So let my life be a song
And may that song carry on

I-I-I-I-I am a symbol, I am a flame
I object to the objective
I won't play the game
I am a symbol, I am a flame
I'm resolved in my resistance
I'm enough is enough
I am a symbol
I-I-I-I am a flame

I will sing for truth
I will sing for light
When I'm gone the flame keeps burning on
I will sing for hope
I will sing for life
When I'm gone the flame keeps burning on

I will sing for truth
I will sing for light
When I'm gone the flame keeps burning on
I will sing for hope
I will sing for life
When I'm gone the flame keeps burning
Flame keeps burning
I'll keep burning on

I am a symbol, I am a flame
I am a symbol, I am a flame
I am a flame

    When it says :i am a symbol, i am a flame" it refers to that of jesus speaking. He is the flame bestowed in all our hearts. "when i'm gone the flame keeps burning on" this shows a revelation that no matter the circumstance he will be there. For just because hes not walking among us does not mean he is not walking with us.
