Well they were given the grapes that go ripe in the sun
That loosen the screws at the back of the tongue
But 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 screaming insanity
Four horsemen

One was over the edge, one was over the cliff
One was licking '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 about what was to come
Four horsemen
