I ride along down the open road The dust trails, to the east The cooling breeze upon my skin But that is just a dream The lizards camouflage My mind stuck in mirage Then the heat-wave falls on me A desert of reality I hear the voice inside Announcing that I have arrived To the town held in my dreams But something doesn't sit Because the people they are afraid Of the chilling naïveté They want their town The sheriffs' growing old The people they turn to me Outsiders obsolete They call me the one The one to put out the fire As their horses' riding in People hide inside the saloon The clock draws to High Noon Just look at me now Watch these men, as they ride See each face, those demon eyes They draw near, tremble with fear Look upon the one, oh you'll see He'll bring peace to everyone From a barrel of a gun Fight a foe, die if you're slow I chose not to watch, oh he's mad As he walks along the mighty face Of the heat-stroked granular sand Whispered tension grows, across the barren land Spectators stop and stare Now the day begins to fade Driven by a nail biting tune Silence as the crow flies past, but who is doomed? On this showdown at High Noon On this showdown at High Noon On this showdown at High Noon Courage builds, now I step in With the Code Duello, we form the ring Perpetual stares, ascending hairs The good, the bad, the mad We all face off with our fate in our own hands No Lock and load, turn around Guns they blow, fall on the ground The patient one, now cocks his gun The Smith 'n' Wesson sings Oh the bells, oh now they ring Into the sunset
