Track Name: Pale Horse Phantasm
Diamond truth that I know
Scars that were made with Bones and Steel
False dreams in my eyes, lain with the dark
Wilderness.
Thunder draws me from sleep
I feel the hooves
I can now see her

Pale Horse Phantasm
Pale Horse Phantasm
Pale Horse Phantasm

Diamond tears in my eyes
Rain on my face
Wilderness
She's so real in the dark
Breath on my neck
I can now feel her
Run as far as I can
with all that I am
All I have ever known

Pale Horse Phantasm
Pale Horse Phantasm
Pale Horse Phantasm

Freedom fevers my skin
Lain with the light
I can now heed the call
Riding before the dawn
Wind of my face
I shall not fear her
Diamond truth I have found
Scars that will fade
I will now ride with her

Track Name: Daughters of Man
Darkness and Light
Bring on the night
Cast from the earth
Shatter the sky

Burned from the fire
Drowned by the sea
Burned from the fire
Drawn by the waves

Daughters of man
gather your seeds
take to the land
cast out your hands

Daughters of Man
be not afraid
Daughters of Man
Take what you've made

Darkness and Light
Banish the night
Here take my hand
Follow me there

Born by the dawn
Daughters of Man
Born by the dawn
Burned by the fire

Daughters of Man
Banish the night
Daughters of Man
Cast out your hands
Cast out your hands
Cast out your hands
Cast out your hands
Track Name: After The Flood Only Love Remains
After the rain the sun will come again
Watch as the clouds all fade away
After the rain the streets will shine again
Out of this fight we all rise again

After the flood only love remains
After the storms have blown away
After the tears only love will reign
After the flood only love remains

I see your face and nothing has changed
Eyes like the sun smiling with grace
Out in the streets your courage remains
Breaking your hands to save this place

After the flood only love remains
After the storms have blown away
After the tears only love will reign
After the flood only love remains

Life is the battle we cannot gauge
Time is a war we cannot wage
Blood is the price we all must pay
Love is the shelter we all must save

After the flood only love remains
After the storms have blown away
After the tears only love will reign
After the flood only love remains
After the flood only love remains...
Track Name: When I Was On Horseback
When I was on Horseback

When I was on Horseback wasn't I pretty
When I was on Horseback wasn't I fine
Wasn't I pretty when I rode through the valley
with pistol and sword and men by my side

When I was on Horseback wasn't I pretty
When I was on Horseback wasn't I brave
Wasn't I pretty when I rode through the country
and met with my downfall on the twelfth day of May

Its four white horses to carry my coffin
its four white horses to walk by my side
Four white horses, black plumes and red roses
Birds singing sweetly as we move along

Beat the drums and play the pipes only
Play up the dead march as we go along
and bring me to Richmond and lay me down easy
I am a young Cavalier with God on my side

When I was on Horseback wasn't I pretty
When I was Horseback wasn't I fine
Wasn't I pretty as I rode through the valley
with pistol and sword and men by my side
Track Name: When I Was On Horseback (Acoustic Demo Take 4)
When I was on Horseback

When I was on Horseback wasn't I pretty
When I was on Horseback wasn't I fine
Wasn't I pretty when I rode through the valley
with pistol and sword and men by my side

When I was on Horseback wasn't I pretty
When I was on Horseback wasn't I brave
Wasn't I pretty when I rode through the country
and met with my downfall on the twelfth day of May

Its four white horses to carry my coffin
its four white horses to walk by my side
Four white horses, black plumes and red roses
Birds singing sweetly as we move along

Beat the drums and play the pipes only
Play up the dead march as we go along
and bring me to Richmond and lay me down easy
I am a young Cavalier with God on my side

When I was on Horseback wasn't I pretty
When I was Horseback wasn't I fine
Wasn't I pretty as I rode through the valley
with pistol and sword and men by my side
