Doomed Immortal - Cover Song - The Man Comes Around
Lyrics: Johnny Cash

Intro (Spoken)
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, going around, taking names
And he decides, who to free, and who to blame
Every body, won't be treated, quite the same
There'll be a golden ladder, reaching down.
When the man comes around.

The hairs on your arm will stand up
At the terror in each Sip and 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 singing
Multitudes are marching to a big kettledrum
Voices calling, voices crying
Some are born and some are dying
It's Alpha and Omegas Kingdom come

And the whirlwind is in the thorn trees
the virgins are all trimming their wicks

The whirlwind is in the thorn trees

It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks
Till Armageddon no shalom, no shalom

Then the father hen will call his chicken's home
The wise man will bow down before the throne
And at his feet they will cast the 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 singing
Multitudes are marching to a big kettledrum
Voices calling, voices crying

Some are born and some are dying
It's Alpha and Omega Kingdom come
And the whirlwind in the thorn trees
And the virgins are all trimming their wicks
The whirlwind in the thorn trees

It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks
In measured hundred weight and penny pound
When the Man comes around.

Outro (Spoken)
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
and I looked and behold, a pale horse
and its name it said on him was Death
And Hell followed with him.
