We have lost so much
Thrown out goodness and the light
Now chaos pervades
Yet light and peace will return:
Acknowledge the creator

There’s nowhere to hide
The light of truth shines on all
Is your conscience clear?

We watch you salute
The rest of us are crying
A light has gone out
The riderless horse breaks free
His saddle is refitted
