Arrows Of Desire Lyrics

1. Arrows Of Desire

On a ruined wind to see our promise right in front of you
Silver barbs to crash the heart
Those gates so irremovable
Oh we can beg, we will bend again
Oh we can beg that we will bend again

Up in thin air, we lie in wait

Held to loose
Wait for the word to come and then to hell with you
Over the fire a time to bear what those below await

Here’s my golden spear
Here’s my cold despair

Up in this air, we lie in wait


2. Via Dolorosa

There’s a spider in the kitchen sink
Turn the tap on, stand there, watch it panic
Via Dolorosa

Wait till I get my head on
Wait till I get my head on straight
Wait till I get my head on
Wait till I get my crown on straight
Wait till you get your head on
Wait till you get your head on straight

There’s a tiger in your cage
Now go to sleep
Something’s coming you don’t know yet
But it’s sorry
Via Dolorosa

Wait till I get my head on
Wait till I get my head on straight
Wait till I get my head on
Wait till I get my crown on
Wait till I get my head on
Wait till I get my cross on straight
Wait till you get your head on
Wait till you get your head on straight


3. Had It Coming

Well you walk like I thought you’d walk
nd you talk like I thought you’d talk
Broken glass, lips to ass, the stars up in the sky
I’m like that one about a priest who walks in bar, orders a drink
And then finds God all in savage company
Well smile
Cruelty free, well heavens me, I never thought I’d see the day
I’ve had it coming

Well you work a job, you hate your job
You go home and you wonder
 “What am I going to do about my job?
It pays the bills, the bills add up”
So you go to bed and dream
You wake up hung over on a beach in the sunshine
And you walk into the sea like nothing’s ever been
Yeah you wade into the sea until you can feel the planet humming
Yeah you sink into the sea and find out that you can breathe
Yeah you sink into the sea and find out at last
You’ve have it coming
We’ve had it coming


4. We’re Long Gone

Got a playbook full of photographs
The coffin corner floor
Faces hit so out of place who’s going to bother with the score?

We’re long gone

Used to call you on the telephone when it was on the wall
Now we line up neat all down the street
And rebel for twice as long
Well something’s in a hurry baby
Price fixing a storm
Watch it come but never run
Oh nobody has before

We’re long gone


5. So Close

There was a bird from Camden High Street
That hit the Thames just short of Battersea
And all the time it flew it sang Young Man Blues
 “Aint got nothing in the world these days”
Just the world don’t know it’s true

So close

Days of rage
Oh us pioneers
If you ain’t on your back taking it get out of here
And if somehow you do, you sing Young Man Blues
 “Ain’t got nothing in the world these days”
Just the world don’t know it’s true

So close

Keep us alive on 45
Don’t let the wolves get anything
Keep us alive on 45
It may mean more than anything


6. Garden Of Knives

My love screams
Yeah I like the second half
All in-between honeycomb legs
I’ll break your back
The more that you want it the more that you’ll take it
The more that you want it the more that you break it

No matter where we are I’ll let you know
No matter where the sun strikes us
Knives will grow

Hear them horses come to mow the road
Feel the air burning like your lungs could just explode
The more that you want it the more that you’ll take it
The more that you want it the more that you break it

No matter where we are I’ll let you know
No matter where the sun strikes us
Knives will grow


7. Mutineering

Just a little lie to take
Got a little code to break
Yeah you know you found me out

Oh my mind, mutineering
Oh my love you stay clear of it

I wish I could turn out the lights
To stone and wood these crooked dice
Cause they don’t got you yet

Done a little bad for should
But never for no greater good
Yeah you know you’ve found us out
And now you know you’ve found us out

All my life, mutineering
Oh my love you stay clear of it

I wish I could turn out the lights
To stone and wood these crooked dice
Cause they don’t got you yet


8. Hey Hell Heaven

It’s old bearing disaster
Yeah but I’ve been faster since I would come around
You got all the exceptions
In a pile leaving all the corrections
Since I would come around

Its want ate everything
And I’d be soulless saved when I would come around
Whole nights caught in a capture
So far gone a collapsed blur
When I would come around

Hey hell heaven is a place that you go
Just so we got a little time on our hands
Just so we get a little time off

Well I wish I was over the fail spot pinned to my shoulders
Since I would come around
Maybe in some other life there’s a better feeling for feeling right
And I would come around

Hey hell heaven is a place that you go
Just so we got a little time on our hands
Just so we get a little time off


9. Guns Of Carolina

Stay like that
You always win with it
That car crash where you’re laid out like Arlington
 
Got some explaining to do

It’s all too late, so what you waiting for?
Take these guns back to Carolina
It’s all too late, done what you paid me for
So take these guns back to Carolina

All high-pass
Every time I look at you
The doors still draft the same of old empty room

Got some explaining to do

It’s all too late, so what you waiting for?
Take these guns back to Carolina
It’s all too late, done what you paid me for
So take these guns back to Carolina


10. Letters In Wartime

There’s a way over you don’t go
Count the days all silent, pinned and roped
Well there’s dynamite in that tunnel for the matchbox in your head
You know, curious canaries suffer no fools in their stead

We got lost at sea once night deceived
Bitter tried you bleed, a bear that’s treed
Where not everything comes forgettable

This is the time I’ve waited for you
Bordered a line I can’t ignore
Taken a life I’ve waited to come again

It’s the only way that I talk
And you’ve always know that it was
It’s the only way I can tell you
Like letters in wartime do

Been lost at sea for years deceived
Chased by sets of French Corvettes
Where not everything comes forgettable
