The Four Horsemen

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich/Mustaine
By the last breath the fourth winds blow
Better raise your ears
The sound of hooves knock at your door
Lock up your wife and children now
It's time to wield the blade
For now you've got some company

        The Horsemen are drawing nearer
        On leather steeds they ride
        They've come to take your life
        On through the dead of night
        With the Four Horsemen ride
        Or choose your fate and die

You have been dying since the day you were born
You know it's all been planned
The quartet of deliverance rides
A sinner once, a sinner twice
No need for confessions now
'Cause now you've got the fight of your life

        The Horsemen are drawing nearer
        On leather steeds they ride
        They've come to take your life
        On through the dead of night
        With the Four Horsemen ride
        Or choose your fate and die

Time
Has taken its toll on you
The lines that crack your face
Famine
Your body it has torn through
Withered in every place
Pestilence
For what you've had to endure
And what you have put others through
Death
Deliverance for you for sure
Now there's nothing you can do

So gather 'round young warriors now
And saddle up your steeds
Killing scores with demon swords
Now is the death of doers of wrong
Swing the judgement hammer down
Safely inside armor blood guts and sweat

        The Horsemen are drawing nearer
        On leather steeds they ride
        They've come to take your life
        On through the dead of night
        With the Four Horsemen ride
        Or choose your fate and die
