Blue Oyster Cult – The Horsemen Arrive lyrics

Written by E. Bloom, D. Roeser and J. Shirley
Performed by Blue Oyster Cult
Forgive me if my laughter sounds cracked
Forgive me if I smile badly
It's only that I've run off the track
Derailed by the irony
Forgive me if my laughter sounds cracked
Forgive me if I smile badly
It's only that I've run off the track
Derailed by the irony
Can you hear the hooves, can you hear the riders coming
On presidential roofs
listen to the sinister drumming
Can you hear the hooves, can you hear the riders coming
On presidential roofs hear the sinister drumming
They warn of Armageddon, they warn us of apocalypse
The future's as a fool's invention
Of choking skies and computer chips
(There's a nightmare) civilization
(There's a monster) industry
Four horsemen have already arrived
I see them above us, already here
Four horsemen with hooves like knives
I say again, already here
(There's a nightmare) civilization
(There's a monster) industry
(There's a devil) human corruption
(There's a vampire) human greed
Can you hear the hooves, can you hear the riders coming
On presidential roofs listen to the sinister drumming
Can you hear the hooves, can you hear the riders coming
On presidential roofs hear the sinister drumming
(There's a nightmare) civilization
(There's a monster) industry
(There's a devil) human corruption
(There's a vampire) human greed
(There's a nightmare) civilization
(There's a monster) industry
(There's a devil) human corruption
(There's a vampire) human greed
