With the horses that you ride
And the feelings left inside
Comes a time you need to leave all that behind
Well they claim they'd like to know
And they'll fight you there to go
And they're gatherin' around for all the show

Well there is a reward
To live and die by the sword
Well they tried to complicate you
But you left it all behind
All the worldly possessions
Are left for recollections
And finally it's all gone

They're releasing all the hounds
What is lost can still be found
When you're walking with your fear down on the ground
Well there's those who choose to run
Following the setting sun
And now it seems the journey's has begun

Well there is a reward
To live and die by the sword
Well they tried to complicate you
But you left it all behind
All the worldly possessions
Are left for recollections
And finally it's all gone

With the horses that you ride
And the feelings left inside
there's a time you need to leave it all behind

Well there is no reward
To live and die by the sword
Well they tried to complicate you
But you left it all behind
All the worldly possessions
Are left for recollections
And finally it's all gone

    General CommentDr. Slash, Thank You SOOO much for this record. Everybody can tell that it took a lot of hard work, imput from others, feel, chances and most of all successes. As for meaning here I belive this song is about just hopping on a motorcycle and taking off into the sunset while leaving your whole old life behind. Which way you go doesn't matter and there are a different set of rules for you now. Great song. Great albumn. Can't wait for the next! -S

    Sorry I think these lyrics are wrong. Maybe a different version from the CD.

    And they want to let you go (play)
    =or=
    Any one could let you go

    and the people gather 'round for one last show
