"A Charge To Keep" as written by and Jon Schaffer....
I must believe that just a memory now
Was the only way to know
That all those you love
Are just ripped away

And now we find the one to lead us
To a brand new day
Has this I must be with a brood of truth
Got to lead the way

Please God give me
The strength to live
(It's my charge to Keep)
Keep the sorrow
The fuel I need
(It's my charge to Keep)

And now we must wipe the tears away
Cover up are in the strength
Lost are those we can't replace
Who bring a louder faith

And all many lives I've seen him take
To bring justice on our way
We must never fault we must never fail
This is a charge to keep

Please God give me
The strength to live
(It's my charge to Keep)
Keep the sorrow
The fuel I need
(It's my charge to Keep)

    General CommentHaltingly powerful. The vocal melodies of this song are incredible, backed by the driving power of the guitars and drums. Nothing short of absolute brilliance

    General Comment"Framing Armageddon: Something Wicked Part 1 tells the story of the Setians, who were the original inhabitants of Earth, and are directly descended from the "Great Architect". They are said to have nearly omniscient knowledge. Humans, who have developed space travel, invade Earth in a bid for "ultimate power and ultimate knowledge", killing all but ten thousand Setians (Invasion, Motivation of Man, Setian Massacre).

    The remaining ten thousand go into hiding in the mountains in the east (A charge to keep). The Setian High Council, which consists of the twelve Elders and the High Priest, make a plan to get revenge on the invading human race (Reflections, Ten Thousand Strong, Order of the Rose). They plan to initiate "The Clouding", which involves brainwashing all the humans and making them forget their origins (Cataclysm, The Clouding). Once completed, the Setians will manipulate history by creating religions--Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc.,--to further divide the humans (Infiltrate and Assimilate, Retribution Through the Ages, The Domino Decree, Framing Armageddon). Once human kind is sufficiently divided, after ten thousand years, the Setians will await, as the prophecy told millennia ago, the birth of the Antichrist, Set Abominae (When Stars Collide, The Awakening). Set Abominae will destroy all of the human race and execute the revenge the Setians have long awaited.

    Framing Armageddon tells the story from the prophecy to the events right before the birth of Set Abominae." - wiki
