None of us will soon forget the day before those things arrived.
In the churchyard on a hill, a man had just buried his bride.
She returned that day, alive.
There's a silhouette on the horizon like an evil stain on the rising sun.
And, as it approached, we saw it was her.
And her eyes were red.
She said, "You're all dead!" then collapsed down to the ground as if somebody cut her strings!

Fear and anguish reigned ever since they came.
We used to walk the streets of town.
Now we know we never will again.

Suddenly, over the hill, a dog lets out an anguished howl.
There ain't a beast this side of Hell that could've brought on what befell that hound.
He was torn from limb to limb.
There's an evil stench creeping on the wind.
Reeks of pestilence mixed with death and sin, from over the range.
That is where we found scattered on the ground 50 head of steer.
But what's real queer - we searched all around, no other part was found!

Fear and anguish reigned ever since they came.
We used to walk the streets of town.
Now we know we never will again.

Some say from the skies they fell.
Others claim they came straight from Hell.
Some swear they are from the dark.
Yet others, they believe they came from our angry hearts.

Hyah!
Giddy up!

And tonight we ride, out of desperation, for the mountainside towards the reservation.
See if they might know how to stem the tide.
Yet, when we arrived, they turned their heads.
And the chief said:

"Now you know how we felt when the white man came!
Fear and anguish reigned ever since they came.
We used to walk the streets of town.
Now we know we never will again."

Fear and anguish reigned ever since they came.
We used to walk the streets of town.
Now we know we never will again.
