LyricsEdit

    A great sign appeared
    Under the stars and the moon
    Sounds of galloping horses
    On clouds of lightning and thunder
    
    A dark gathering storm
    To scorch the earth for many generations
    A nuclear winter
    Worse than any cold or holy war
    
    A white horse on the clouds of death
    A red warhorse to end all wars
    A pale horse and pestilence led by a
    Black horse with famine and scales
    
    The doctrine of hatred
    Nation will rise against nation
    Wash me in blood and let me be
    The firstborn of the dead
    
    A crowned rider with arrows and bow
    A red rider with a great fiery sword
    Flames come from the one called death
    Horror and apocalypse follows
    
    (RIDE!) Won't you four horsemen ride again
    Before this kingdom is blown to kingdom come
    
    I hold fast to what I believe
    Till I see my name in stone
    
    Blessed are the dead
    
    A white horse on the clouds of death
    A red warhorse to end all wars
    A pale horse and pestilence led by a
    Black horse with famine and scales
    
    The synagogue of Satan
    Nation will rise against nation
    Wash me in blood and let me be
    The firstborn of the dead
    
    A crowned rider with arrows and bow
    A red rider with a great fiery sword
    Flames come from the one called death
    Horror and apocalypse follows
    
    (RIDE!) Won't you four horsemen ride again
    Before this kingdom is blown to kingdom come
    I hold fast to what I believe
    Till I see my name in stone
    
    Blessed are the dead
