lyrics

Walking keep walking, down by the river.
Night time is falling, I feel a shiver.
Is it the ground that shakes? Is it my mind that shakes?

I see dark horses they're headed towards us.
Their eyes are like sharp knives hurtling forwards.
There is no other path, their hooves are beating fast.

We’ll throw ourselves in the water, or fall at the stampede.
On the other side there are wolves, and they want to destroy us.
How will we succeed?

Back on the land we’re cold and we’re useless,
Listening for sounds of the danger around us.
The light is getting low, why does the moon not show?

Far in the distance the horses keep coming.
The river demons roaring, the wolves they keep howling.
There is no place to hide, I can feel them at my side.

We’ll throw ourselves in the water, or fall at the stampede.
On the other side there are wolves, and they want to destroy us.
How will we succeed?

The horses they come, they hit me they hit me.
One after one, they hit me they hit me.
Into the river, spinning and drowning
Pulls me down under, chokes me and spins me
Dragged out by the wolves, seething and growling.
Their claws in my back, then into the water.
One after one, they hit me they hit me.
The horses they come, they hit me they hit me.
