Written by Smith / Dickinson

Across a painted desert lies a train of vagabonds
All that’s left of what we were it’s what we have become
Once our empires glorious but now the empire’s gone
The dead gave us the time to live and now our time is done

Now we are victorious we’ve become our slaves
A land of hope and glory building graveyards for the brave

Have you seen the writing on the wall
Have you seen that writing
Can you see the riders on the storm
Can you see them riding ~ can you see them riding

Holding on to jury is that all we ever know
Ignorance our judge and jury all we’ve got to show
From Hollywood to Babylon ~ holy war to kingdom come
On a trail of dust and ashes ~ when the burning sky is done
A tide of change is coming and that is what you fear
The earthquake is a coming but you don’t want to hear
You’re just too blind to see

Have you seen the writing on the wall
Have you seen that writing
Can you see the riders on the storm
Can you see them riding
Can you see them riding. . . Riding next to you

    Skewed version of the Holy Bible but ok.

    @Ameliorator777 Sure buddy. You still need to repent and get right with God by trusting in Jesus.

  17. Ameliorator777

    Ameliorator777Pred 5 urami

    @Joshua Hall This video probably makes people way more conscious of God and the bible than you do on a day to day basis.

    @Joshua Hall Dude its an interpretation get over yourself. Its not a literal contextualization of the bible.

  20. Joshua Hall

    Joshua HallPred 5 urami

    @Ameliorator777 Where are the four horsemen mentioned? They originate from the holy bible. So the man who turns into an evil looking zombie is God? I think your understanding is skewed too. God is absolutely holy and pure, you couldn't even look at Him without vaporizing.

    Transhumanism VS human (divine) nature Elite VS free folks Globalism VS nations Babel Tower VS prophecy Electro music VS METAL Prince Harris, Merkel, Macron, China-EEUU socialdemocracy and the Antichrist VS Eddie ( Eddie is now representes by the "Pilgrim" archetype, the messenger or Mesiha, Christ, but also Odin - aka "Wandelf" or "Elven Staff" (according to P. Jackson's adaptation of The Lord of The Rings, "Gandalf"). He's a sheeper, and a helping overprotective God, but now he's quite pissed with the rulling class and, as Odin with his crows, has come to Earth disguised as an old man to set the men free from their master's chains and take revenge for the inocent lives. MASTERPIECE.

People sick, going to the place whew supposed to fix them, leaders, different type of people, bombs, artificial inteligence, satan growing up, the pentagram, four knights and the mission of them. Too much to figure out for sure. This is not only a clip, this is a message. Open your eyes. Jesus is the only way.
