Arrow by Van Der Graaf Generator

Stark towers in the distance riders cross the blasted moor

Against the horizon.

Fickle promises of treaty fatal harbingers of war

Enter our 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 the voice half-strangled by the shock

Of its rejection.

Shot the bolt in the wall rusted the key;

Now the echoes of all frightful 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 pot -

Well that's long since been empty.

I would 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.
