Into the f*cking hot desert
He rode with Samuel Colt by his side
Through the canyons and prairie
Following the nasty winds of time.
Across the wild prairie he gazed
Pillar of fire raged before him
Tornado of destruction behind
He stopped at Snake Canyon rim.
Bible fell open, he began to read
“and I saw a star that had fallen
from heaven to earth,
and he was given the key
to the shaft of the bottomless pit.”
Wraithlike Darkness closed in fast
Shooting stars crossed night skies
Black holes sucked universal dust
Beside the fire he closed his eyes.
His demons snarled around him
The rider lay peaceful and still
.45 beside him on the ground
יהוה watched from yonder hill.
