The shadow falls on me today
Why can't it fade into the distance.

And darkness calls, no other way.
I rage at the riddle of existence.

The day's almost gone but you'll carry on
Can you keep the flame for me.
The day's almost gone but you'll carry on.
Can you keep the flame for me.

A broken plan, a fleeting past.
How do we always keep on trying.

A tired man, is free at last.
What would the purpose be of lying.

My life's almost gone but you'll carry on.
Can you keep the flame for me.
My life's almost gone but please carry on.
Could you keep the flame for me.
Will you keep the flame for me.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song, gotta love it.
    Pretty self explanatory, about the death of someone and he's passing the torch on to someone else.

    Starts off with cursing why and he doesn't want to die.
    "And darkness calls, no other way.
    I rage at the riddle of existence."

    But ends up accepting it
    "A tired man, is free at last.
    What would the purpose be of lying."

    Yea I'd like this song played at my funeral.
    Hopefully thats a good ways away though hahah
