Ride Till Dawn

Dormant village green
Silent in the hidden vale
Moonlight growls with life
Shattering night's sanctuary
Calm driven from its lair
Memories crumble into dust

Calm driven from its lair
Memories crumble into dust
Eyes forged from steel
Skin cloaked in leather
Freedom is your open road
As you ride the iron horse

Freedom is your open road
As you ride the iron horse
Thoughts tumble in the saddle
Biting hard on weathered skin
Your redemption is the night
Darkened soul set free

Your redemption is the night
Darkened soul set free
Letting loose your dogs of war
Setting free the nightmares
Racing down the highway
Chasing down a future

Racing down the highway
Chasing down a future
Horrified by things long past
The man no longer recognised
Clad in leather, eyes of steel
A nomad lost in time

Clad in leather, eyes of steel
A nomad lost in time
Wandering life's highways
Seeking hope at every turn
Merest glimpse of what could be
The demons keep subdued

Merest glimpse of what could be
The demons keep subdued
Nightly ride-out clears the path
True hopes surface clear
Moonlight fading fast
Still riding with the sunrise
