lyrics

On a red horse came war
And he flew the black flag
Come to burn it all down
With our babies inside
And he mustered his sons
For the martyrs' parade
And he couldn't be bought
And he couldn't be bribed

Hush
Baby don't you cry

On a black horse came famine
And he broke the black tap
And we walked to get bread
With red rags on our feet
But our betters as always
Could simper it out
And they slept in the Vineyard
While we fought in the streets

Hush
Baby don't you cry

On a pale horse came death
And hell close behind
Our ambassadors out
To talk at the tide
His laugh was a roar
And he rose with the Moon
And we fled from his sickle
With no place to hide

We saw one falling star,
Then ten, then a score,
And we cried out to God,
Right before we went blind
In a fireball flash
In a fireball flash
On a pale horse came death
And hell right behind
