To ride away

Where do you now ride to?
To doom, to doom.
Where do you drive them on to?
To war, to war.
Where is the one I knew before?

They must quickly ride away
for their message will not keep
they can not linger or stay
and for them no rest or sleep.

They will pass as clouds in the sky
for it is that time calls them nigh
it is for you to stay behind
for their destiny is assigned.

Why do you now ride to?
For fate, for fate.
Why do you drive them on to?
For the call, for the call.

For they must now ride away
to join the harvest's reap
and to return, none can say
upon passing we will weep.
