The flesh is weak, the bones are brittle, the blood is thin.
I'm a father, brother, lover to all you sisters of sin.
My soul was never sold, I gave it away for free.
No conscience worries, just me.

I'm the rider of the last day.
The rider of the last day.
Better lose your dreams on me.
They were wasted anyway.

The stars are my brothers, they're calling me to shine.
Into the deep dark cold, all this emptiness is mine.
Here's my hand, take it and I'll share it all with you.
There are no saviours but one and you know who.

I'm the rider...

Bathe in the coolness of meteor rain.
Walk unscarred through the bullet hail.
Feet in the mud, fist to the sky.
Draw strength from the lightning spitting my eye.

Lost from holiness, I couldn't care less.
Drudgery for the masses of the hopeless.
Wide-eyed hypnosis, just stare your life away.
Build in my castle from your shreds,
burn it down on judgement day.

I'm the rider...

    Song MeaningI think this song is about the Anti-Christ-"I'm a father, brother, lover to all you sisters of sin" This shows that the narrator is unholy. " I'm the rider of the last day.The rider of the last day.Better lose your dreams on me.They were wasted anyway." This is saying what he/she is, and not to bother with future events because your going to die in the apocalypse."Lost from holiness, I couldn't care less." showing again that the narrator is unholy. "Drudgery for the masses of the hopeless" Slavery of the Anti Christs followers" So I think this song has something to do with the Christain Apocalypse told form the Anti Christs view.
