lyrics

You stand at the crossroads
Where the future meets the past
Between the bridges burned behind you
And the fear that lies ahead

You see the flicker of ambition
It's like a beacon in the night
So the choice is yours
Will you live or just survive?

For a new day is dawning
There's a story to be told
Your legend's forged in the furnace
Of the fire in your soul

Raise your flag, stand tall
Though those around you crawl
You're the light in the darkness
For all the world to see

Raise your head, stand strong
With the will to carry on
You're the light in the darkness
For all the world to see

There are those who'd defy you
Their spirits broken and enslaved
Though their voices roar like thunder
Their hearts already know the grave

They fear the force of your ambition
They sense the fire in your hear
So set the world ablaze
Cast their ashes to the wind

For when they are forgotten
And their stories left untold
It's your legend that will live on
Through the fire in your soul

Raise your flag stand tall
Though those around you crawl
You're the light in the darkness
For all the world to see

Raise your head, stand strong
With the will to carry on
You're the light in the darkness
For all the world to see

Solo (van Heerden)
Solo (Ellis)

When the battle is over
And the story has been told
You're the one who's left standing
With the fire in your soul

Raise your flag stand tall
Though those around you crawl
You're the light in the darkness
For all the world to see

Raise your head, stand strong
With the will to carry on
You're the light in the darkness
For all the world to see

Raise your flag stand tall
Though those around you crawl
You're the light in the darkness
For all the world to see

Raise your head, stand strong
For you have the strength to carry on
You're the light in the darkness
For all the world
For all the world to see
