    "The Man Comes Around" Lyrics

    Brian Tyler feat. Johnny Cash

    "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 goin' 'round takin' 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 reachin' 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 singin'
    Multitudes are marchin' to the big kettledrum
    Voices callin', voices cryin'
    Some are born and some are dyin'
    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 singin'
    Multitudes are marchin' to the big kettledrum
    Voices callin', voices cryin'
    Some are born and some are dyin'
    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 trees
    It's hard for thee to kick against the prick
    In measured hundredweight and penny pound
    When the man comes around

    "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"
