Arrow Lyrics - Godbluff - Van Der Graaf Generator

Stub towers in the distance, riders the blasted moor 

Against the horizon 

Fickle promises of treaty, fatal harbingers of war, 

Futile horizons 

Swirl as one in this flight, this mad chase, 

This surge across the marshy mud landscape 

Until the meaning is forgotten. 

Hood masks the eager face, skin stretched 

And sallow, 

Headlong into the chilling night, as swift 

As any arrow. 

 

Feet against the flagstones, fingers scrabbling 

At the lock, 

Craving protection. 

'Sanctuary!' croaks a voice, 

Half-strangled by the shock 

Of its rejection. 

Shot the bolt in the wall, rusted the key; 

Now the echoes of all frightfull memory 

Intrude in the silence. 

What a crawl against the slope 

Dark loom the gallows 

One touch to the chapel door, 

How swiftly comes the arrow. 

 

"Compassion" you plead, as though 

They kept it in a box 

That's long since been empty. 

I'd like to help you somehow, 

But I'm in the self-same spot: 

My condition exempts me. 

We are all on the run on our knees; 

The sundial draws a line upon eternity 

Across every number. 

How long the time seems, how dark the shadow, 

How straight the eagle flies, 

How straight towards his arrow. 

How long the night is 

Why is this passage so narrow? 

How strange my body feels, 

Impaled upon the arrow.
