The Walking Dead Music: The Last Pale Light In The West By Ben Nichols

The Last Pale Light In The West

During the opening to the “Live Bait” episode of The Walking Dead, The Governor gets his own theme music. As the Governor drives alone in his truck, and as he watches Woodbury go up in flames, there is rather catchy tune that plays in the background.

Here are the lyrics to The Governor’s theme song. “In my hands, I hold the ashes. In my veins, black pitch runs. In my chest, a fire catches. In my way, a setting sun. Dark clouds gather 'round me. To the west, my soul is bound. And I will go on ahead, free. There's a light yet to be found. The last pale light in the west. The last pale light in the west. And I ask for no redemption. In this cold and barron place. Still I see the faint reflection. And so by it, I got my way. The last pale light in the west. The last pale light in the west.”

For those that were wondering, The Governor’s theme song is actually a song called “The Last Pale Light In The West” by Ben Nichols. It’s from Nichols’ solo album of the same name. We’ve embedded a YouTube version of the song below.
