And then the clouds parted, but what I saw was not the sun
What was staring back at me was looking at everyone
A giant eye in the sky surveying the Earth
A teardrop the size of an island slowly giving birth

I heard seven horns blowing
I saw four horsemen riding

A wild thunderclap appeared and shook the barren land
As the eye up in the heavens closed and water met the sand
Darkness now for miles and miles, my pant leg getting wet
My companions and I sought wisdom, this is what we get

I heard seven horns blowing
I saw four horsemen riding

Ride on, ride on, ride on...
