about

Surrender a battle you cannot win.

lyrics

Rudyrad Kipling, 1901

1. Verse
I have been given my charge to keep -
Well have I kept the same!
Playing with strife most of my life,
But this is a different game.
I`ll not fight against swords unseen,
Or spears I cannot view

Chorus
Hand him the keys of the place on your knees -
`Tis the Dreamer
Hand him the keys of the place on your knees -
`Tis the Dreamer

2. Verse
Ask him his terms and accept at once.
Quick, ere we anger him, go!
Never before have I flinched from the guns,
But this is a different show.
I`ll not fight against swords unseen,
Or spears I cannot view

Chorus
Hand him the keys of the place on your knees -
`Tis the Dreamer
Hand him the keys of the place on your knees -
`Tis the Dreamer

Postchorus
I`ll not fight with the Herald of God
I know what his Master can do!
Open the gate, he must enter in state,
`Tis the Dreamer whose dreams come true!

3. Verse
I`d not give way for an Emperor,
I`d hold my road for a King -
To the Triple Crown I would not bow down -
But this is a different thing
I`ll not fight with powers of Air,
Sentry, pass him through!
Drawbridge let fall, `tis the Lord of us all,
The Dreamer whose dreams come true!

I`d not give way for an Emperor,
I`d hold my road for a King -
To the Triple Crown I would not bow down -
But this is a different thing
I`ll not fight against swords unseen,
Or spears I cannot view
I`ll not fight with the Herald of God
I know what his Master can do!
`tis the Lord of us all, the Lord of us all,
The Dreamer whose dreams come true!
