There actually is a small town in Ohio called Black Horse. We might have gone a little bit overboard with the gloomy theme on this song, but we definitely had fun with it in the studio.


Lay your soul to sleep
The blade cuts deep
When the reaper reaps

Tongues of fire grow
Unholy glow
From the depths below

The hounds of hell will howl
They paw the earth and growl
They hear their master now

Their's nothing you can do
Your nightmares coming true
The rider comes for you

Pale rider on a Blackhorse

Cast all hope aside
No one can hide
When the rider rides

Sees with sightless eyes
He holds the threads
He keeps the prize

Your self-control will fail
At the telling of the tail
Of the rider pale

Hold your children tight
To the sacrificial light
The rider rides tonight

Pale rider on a Blackhorse


from Single Entendre, released March 27, 2010
