Pallor Rider
Jerry Fielden 2020 SOCAN


INTRO
So feeling sad
Solitude
In our midst
Abundance of knowledge but loss of lore

VERSE 1
When the Sun rises up and the desert is so hot
The planet has been scorched and nowhere can we go
And humankind despairs of its own sorry lot
As all of us are dying behind our tablet screens



CHORUS
Pallor
Pallor Rider
Strikes through the land with blight and rage

Pallor
Pallor Rider
Hate and ignorance fuel this age


VERSE 2
The swan song of the age of goodness is at hand
Rise of hatred and greed is powering the land
Can we get a new voice to speak for those in need
A kind word for the poor dejected crowd to feed



CHORUS

VERSE 3
Will he pass us by and move his crimes away
Hoping in our lifetimes that we will see the day
The Rider had a lot of darkness to portrait
That artist of Evil has died and gone away


INTRO REPEAT
So feeling sad
Solitude
In our midst
Abundance of knowledge but loss of lore

(lead break)


END CHORUS
Pallor
Pallor Rider
Destruction, violence fed by greed

Pallor
Pallor Rider
We knew the warnings, did not heed

Pallor
Pallor Rider
Strikes through the land with blight and rage

Pallor
Pallor Rider
Hate and ignorance leave this age
Hate and ignorance leave this age
Hate and ignorance leave this age
