Oh the rise and come in full
there you will find out
what lies within you
Yes you've grown old
but I'm listening as we go
Where you are is where you were before
Reminds me where I'm going

We're bringing down the dark horse
bringing down the dark horse
bringing down the dark horse
We're bringing down the dark horse


Oh the lies they come and go
Whether they're made up
No fire was in you
Yes you've grown old
but I'm listening as we go
to find out more of where you were before
Reminds me where we're going

We're bringing down the dark horse
bringing down the dark horse
bringing down the dark horse
We're bringing down the dark horse

    General CommentThe lyrics on this one are pretty hard to understand in the album version. And I'm pretty sure some lines are different in their live playings of it.

    Great song, either way

    General CommentYoutube channel Auroborus hit on this connection but there is an absolutely hideous effigy of a Horse in front of the Denver International Airport. Despite enforced popular consensus about conspiracy theories: The way that place is set up, it might as well be a Bond villain base. It gets more and more chilling the deeper you look into it. Not just the Horse but murals that were inside the place before being altered or painted over so as not to overly alarm the public.

    Anyway, bringing down the Dark Horse, takes on an interesting meaning if we look at in this light. Not so much as the monument in front of DIA itself but if we consider that what it symbolizes is ultimately an attempt to subvert positive energies, associations and archetypes of the Human consciousness. This is being bought down as more and more people realize what is really of value in their lives and reject that level of false-hood and cruel trickery.

    The narrator speaks of how the older generation made mistakes in abetting those in power who erected the dark horse. Pledging to learn from previous mistakes and to bring down that system. Not something out of the norm for Other Lives, Don't let the Get away with this has a very similar message. Other Lives is with what they are able to articulate and express, not just lyrically but musically. Some of the songs in their latest -Rituals, someone find or post the lyrics for that one please- I can barely make out the lyrics too but I can actually feel exactly what they are singing about despite not being able to understand them perfectly.
