    And I heard as it were the noise of thunder
    One of the four beasts saying come and see and I saw
    And behold a white horse

    There's a man going around taking names
    And he decides who to free and who to blame
    Everybody won't be treated all the same
    There'll be a golden ladder reaching down
    When the Man comes around

    The hairs on your arm will stand up
    At the terror in each sip and in each sup
    Will you partake of that last offered cup?
    Or disappear into the potter's ground
    When the Man comes around

    Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers
    One hundred million angels singing
    Multitudes are marching to the big kettledrum
    Voices calling, voices crying
    Some are born and some are dying
    It's Alpha and Omega's kingdom come

    And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree
    The virgins are all trimming their wicks
    The whirlwind is in the thorn tree
    It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks

    Till Armageddon no shalam, no shalom
    Then the father hen will call his chickens home
    The wise man will bow down before the throne
    And at His feet they'll cast their golden crowns
    When the Man comes around

    Whoever is unjust let him be unjust still
    Whoever is righteous let him be righteous still
    Whoever is filthy let him be filthy still
    Listen to the words long written down
    When the Man comes around

    Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers
    One hundred million angels singing
    Multitudes are marching to the big kettledrum
    Voices calling and voices crying
    Some are born and some are dying
    It's Alpha and Omega's kingdom come

    And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree
    The virgins are all trimming their wicks
    The whirlwind is in the thorn tree
    It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks

    In measured hundred weight and penney pound
    When the Man comes around.

    Close (Spoken part)
    And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
    And I looked and behold, a pale horse
    And his name that sat on him was Death
    And Hell followed with him.
