|Lyrics:||Stub towers in the distance, riders cross the blasted moor|
against the horizon
promises of treaty, fatal harbingers of war,
swirl as one in this flight,
this mad chase,
this surge across the marshy mud landscape
until the meaning is
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
'Sanctuary!' cracks a voice, half-strangled by the
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
One touch to the chapel door, how swiftly comes the arrow.
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
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?
strange my body feels, impaled upon the arrow
