"Pale Horses" as written by and Richard Melville Hall....
Put me on the train, send me back to my home
Couldn't live without you when I tried to roam
Put me by the window, let me see outside
Looking at the places where all my family died

    General CommentThis is one of those songs with an odd line that sounds like something ridiculous.

    "where all my family died"...
    sounds like:
    "come on family guy"
    lol.

    General Commentpale horses... i looked for it, and it came the death on a pale horse.

    so, y re-read the lyrics, and came to the conclusion that this song is about suicide. more especificaly "dying on sorrow" , a goodbye letter.

    General Commentit should say "I re-red" .

    BTW: Moby said that this album in particular is connected from beginning to the end, so the rest of the songs probably talk about something similar

    General CommentThe first thing I thought of was overall anguish and loss, like the main character had lost his family/friends and was trying to get that love he lost back, but realized in the end that losing the most important people in your life is hard to reverse. The alien in the video kept trying to make himself happy by fabricating joyful experiences, but the universe erased those quickly and deepened his depressed state. I listened to this song a lot when I was so bogged down by school and had kind of an emotional separation from my family for a little while; I had basically lost what little happiness I had and that was tough to handle. I also think this song especially alludes to death and suicide.
