picture, if you will, a lone rider on the plane
he's got eyes like a hawk, in his hands he holds the reins
but he knows not where he's supposed to ride to
still he rides on without a clue
and he has no fear the end is near

in the cold, into the wind, he wraps his scarf around his chin
he bristles while he glares into the darkness with a hidden grin
the rain is pouring to the ground
the thunder makes a deafening sound
he shakes his fists and shouts, you can do better than this

there is no end
just what's next around the bend

on the day the fire burned he rolled around in the embers
cackling like a wild animal with ticks beneath its fur
his horse vanished with the smoke
the rider just laughed at the joke
and so he stood and walked on into the woods

onward through the mountain snow, where no man ever dared to go
a creature from the great below reared his head and blocked the road
a lesser man would've tried to run
but the rider procured his gun
he aimed for the head and shot that demon dead

there is no end
just what's next around the bend

if you listen close you'll hear the echoes of his ghost
laughing madly through the night but never coming into sight
it's a sound that will chill your bones
while you were busy skipping stones
the city raged and silently turned the page

it's the same now as it was then, everyone's waiting for the end
that moment when we make amends and put it all together again
like somehow we got off course
like somehow we lost our horse
but the river bends and so it will bend again

there is no end
just what's next around the bend
