Lyrics

    Sight
    Pale riders into the night
    Galloping harder and faster
    Through your dreaming
    
    Wake
    Walk towards the fire innate
    Frost bitten soul below zero
    Excitation
    
    Are you remembering the sound?
    Recall the shaking of the ground?
    
         Pounding
         Pounding
         No Remorse
         Lords of summer set on course
    
         Pushing
         Pushing
         Horsemen Ride
         Lords of summer, undenied
    
              At last the thawing has begun
              Come trade your darkness for the sun
              Melting the chill of winter’s turn
              So celebrate and let your fires burn
              The Lords of Summer have returned
    
    Straight
    Light passes through, penetrate
    It’s been a long lonely winter
    Illumination
    
    Bright
    Bathe in the volume and light
    Reanimated by fire
    Transformation
    
    Become the nexus of the sound
    Become the shaking of the ground
    
         Pounding
         Pounding
         No Remorse
         Lords of summer set on course
    
         Pushing
         Pushing
         Horsemen Ride
         Lords of summer, undenied
    
              At last the thawing has begun
              Come trade your darkness for the sun
              Melting the chill of winter’s turn
              So celebrate and let your fires burn
              The Lords of Summer have returned
    
         Whoa, Pounding
         Pounding
         No Remorse
         Lords of summer set on course
    
         Whoa, Pushing
         Pushing
         Horsemen Ride
         Lords of summer, undenied
         Undenied
    
              At last the thawing has begun
              Come trade your darkness for the sun
              Melting the chill of winter’s turn
              So celebrate and let your fires burn
              The Lords of Summer have returned
