Verse 1 Nikola                                                            Verse 1 Renata
( Am Cadd9 G Em palm mute)
Four horseman ride on their steed                       God in heaven intercedes
Black, pale, red and white have great speed       Glory praise, strike down evil and greed
Ride north, south east and west                           God plants germinating seeds
Conquest, war, famine and death                        They explode mushroom clouds for all to see

Chorus Nikola ( Am Em G D )                                Chorus Renata
There is dust and clouds and chaos                          There is a choice to live , survive
No understanding among us                                       God tells us clearly at the time
Red rain in the air death everywhere                         Above ground the air will disappear
How an Apocalypse is happening now          Orange and red colors seen everywhere now
Being lead deep into the underground          God says lead your people deep underground
Hear blasts, there are loud explosion sounds     Must keep from the loud explosion sounds

V2 Nikola                                                                       V 2 Renata
( Am Cadd9 G Em palm mute)
My heart races can’t speak a sound                     My heart pounds think hear it out loud
Trapped by guards they are all around                Joy is felt I was lost but been found
White beard man looks wise says be brave         As see God’s prophet for our souls pray
Says join my Church Order you can be saved    Join his Church Order willingly obey

Chorus Nikola ( Am Em G D )                                             Chorus Renata
There is dust and clouds and chaos                               There is a choice to live , survive
No understanding among us                                         God tells us clearly at the time
Red rain in the air death everywhere                           Above ground the air will disappear
How an Apocalypse is happening now          Orange and red colors seen everywhere now
Being lead deep into the underground           God says lead your people deep underground
Hear blasts, there are loud explosion sounds     Must keep from the loud explosion sounds

line 1-3 D Amin Emin D ; 4th to end: D amin C D

Told must live in this dark and unknown             You are coming of age tomorrow
Daddy’s little girl how you have grown               Your mother so proud you should know
All above is like stone, hard and still                   Your chosen destiny to be filled
I will protect you darling sleep well                    To serve  and protect becomes you well

It is now  called hell.                                                   ( Darling,) sweet dreams sleep well
