Clash – Four Horsemen lyrics

One two, one two three four
Well they were given the grapes that go ripe in the sun that loosen the screws at the back of the tongue
They told no one where they had begun, four horsemen
They were given all the foods of vanity and all the instant promises of immortality
But they bit the dust screamin' insanity, four horsemen
One was over the edge, one was over the cliff, one was lickin' 'em dry with a bloody great spliff
When they picked up the hiker he didn't want the lift from the horsemen
But you, you're not searching, are you now?
You're not looking anyhow
You're never gonna ride that lonely mile or put yourself up on trial
Oh, you told me how your life was so bad
And I agree that it does seem sad but that's the price that you gotta pay if you're lazing all around all day
Four horsemen and they're coming right through
Four horsemen and they're pissing by you
They make you look like you're wearing a truss
Four horsemen and it's gonna be us
Well they gave us everything for bending the mind and we cleaned out their pockets and we drank 'em blind
It's a long way to the finish so don't get left behind by those horsemen
And they gave us the grapes that went ripe in the sun that loosen the screws at the back of the tongue
But we still told nothing 'bout what was to come, four horsemen
? So we pay?, are they rock 'n' roll
? People?, got rock 'n' roll

Hearing the funk, all around us
Got no groove
We been beating all of us
Downed by police
We beat the cops, all around
Cops like to beat
? Police force?, are they rock 'n' roll
? People?, got rock 'n' roll
? People?, got rock 'n' roll
? People?, got rock 'n' roll
