Behind the Track | Four (The Horsemen)

What is it about?

I used to work in an auto shop. One day, a man drove into the shop and parked in a bay without saying anything to anyone. His car was like something out of Mad Max and he claimed to be a horseman of the apocalypse. 

There were a number of reason to think he could be telling the truth. The experience sticks with me to this day, especially with all that has transpired over the past couple of years with the pandemic.

In times like these its easy to draw parallels to the book of Revelation in the bible which is really what inspired this song.

Lyrics:

Did you know, the world would end this way
That food would be worth more than fame
Did you know that the horsemen are riding this way
And the pale one's got everyone fearing his name

And we'd go to war with ourselves over such foolish things
The horsemen are riding this way
The horsemen are riding this way

When it was said and done the sheep had just elected
all the wolves they never saw their teeth
and now the wolves are sleeping full

The horsemen are riding this way

Famine rode his faded mustang down the boulevard
and waved at the people as they slowly starved
its like a book I read once
but cannot remember
The forest fire consumed the all in burning embers

Did you know the world would end this way
Did you know

Famine rode his faded mustang down the boulevard
and waved at all the people as they slowly starved
it's like a book a read once
but cannot remember
Not I can't remember
I just can't remember

And the horsemen rode in without speaking
With every step they took the earth was screaming
If you watch to long you might stop breathing
but that may ease the burden I don't know
