3. “When The Man Comes Around”-[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Johnny Cash[/lastfm]
If anyone could accurately predict the Rapture, it would be Johnny Cash. Whenever he sings something, he sounds like a prophetic curmudgeon. Can’t you just see him misanthropically grumbling out these lyrics while the sky is falling all around him?
And I heard, as it were/the noise of thunder/One of the four beasts saying: “Come and see.”/And I saw. And behold, a white horse./There’s a man goin’ ’round takin’ names/An’ he decides who to free and who to blame/Everybody won’t be treated all the same/There’ll be a golden ladder reaching down/When the man comes around.
