He rides at night
Sword in his hand
Searching for children
Across this land

The setting sun
Darkens the land
So light your fires
And take your stand

Headless Horseman
Coming around tonight
Headless horseman
Keep your babies inside

You beg your children
Don’t make a sound
His evil shadow
Falls on the ground

Down in the cellar
Huddled in fear
Your daughter screams
As he draws near

Headless Horseman
Coming around tonight
Headless horseman
Keep your babies inside

They gathered in their masses
Just before the dawn
All the children present
Their crucifixes on
The women grabbed the children
The men they grabbed their guns
They saw his ghastly silhouette against the setting sun
The women headed back to town
The men they headed east
They’re off to kill this wicked man and slay the devils beast

Deep inside the forest
They found the Horseman’s lair
The children screamed from deep inside
And death was in the air
The battle raged for hours
In that foggy glen
But all the men who left that day
Were never see again

Our music is one big fat fucking ode to heavy metal, norse gods, death, war, beer, pestilence, sex, chaos and everything that rocks. Our music eats children and our synergy melts faces. Yes, synergy motherfuckers. We have a high concentration of synergy. We also have an alarmingly prodigous amount of metal sex drive as well. Ask your mom. She'll tell you. ... more
