Lyrics by Joel Sattler adapted by David Garrido

Based on a poem by Federico Garcia Lorca


dark riders ride black horses

they ride under tainted capes

they're humans that cry no more,

their minds are cut in lead


in the deep black night they come

two by two the riders turn

in their cartridge belts they bring

a murmur of long dead souls


cheerful city gates wide open

and the forty riders pour through

sharp rifle bursts end the party

and will be sounding all night


climbing up the steeper streets

the dark cloaks scatter the fires

where the young old and children

all set ablaze with their desires


The women run in horror

chased by their very own tresses

the air explodes and burns

black powder roses in rage


...guitar solo...


dawn slowly brings a dark day

as black as the day's night was

the forty murderers depart

through tunnels of silence
