Keeper Of The Keys

     
 

Could we possibly see the keeper of all the keys

One key to rule them he keeps in the great hall

Under the dark tower we call

 

Now we beat on the drum

Aquarian dancers come

And now the children the oracle has seen

Play at the old gates of his dreams

And he doesnít even realize

He doesnít realize

That itís all happening

To let him know thereís a change cominí up behind him

But he's hanging on to the chains and the key that binds him

 

Now the changes are there

And the color of renaissance fair

Sings Ďneath the window and lies on a new breeze soft

For the old keeper of keys

And he doesnít even realize

He doesnít realize

That itís all happening

To let him know thereís a change cominí up behind him

But heís hanging on to the chains and the key that binds him

 

Keeper of the keys

Keeper of the keys

Heís the keeper of the keys

But itís almost over now
