The Clash Four Horsemen Lyrics
Last updated: 12/15/2011 11:00:00 AM
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
They were given all the foods of vanity
And all the instant promises of immortality
But they bit the dust screamin' "insanity!"
One was over the edge, one was over the cliff
One was lickin' 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 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 scews at the back of the tongue
But we still told nothing 'bout what was to come
We play all your rock and roll
We know your rockin' soul
We reach the parts other combos cannot reach!
We reach the beaches other armies cannot reach!
We've reached the top of the mountain they cannot reach!
