A Pale Horse
Midnight lightning in the sky
by Bill Simmons
Man in black he passes by
It seems to me he is out of place
With the look of death upon his face
Can't see his eyes, no soul inside
Although he walks, he is not alive
Followed by a pale white horse
The one called death, he holds his course
The demons gather about his feet
Thunder abates, the lightning streaks
For the hand of death, one soul he seeks
As he paces, paces down the street
The fog it creeps, it settles in
In front of a home, his search it ends
In the still of night, a breath of wind
He climbs on his steed and rides again
Did you hear the small child cry?
As it took first breath of life?
One he lives, and one he dies
As away on a pale white horse he rides.
