I stand in the face of danger
I alone am the shield for the thousands behind me
I stand in the gap to protect them

They do not know the pain that I suffer
They do not see the atrocities I protect them from
They do not understand what lies in their wake

I keep my shield up
My breastplate close
My helmet on tight

With my sword in hand
I will stand and fight
I will fight until my last breath

I will fight for the truth
That whispers to us from eternity
