Crowded House – Archer's Arrows lyrics
Kids kissing on the floor
They make a work of art
Up on the gallery wall
They take the world apart
And no one's safe
The tension on the string
We're almost there
It's time to reign over the king

The archer fires away (Send an arrow up)
We hope to rise again (Like an invitation)
Aim high
Then the arrow comes down
Take out
The pale imitation

The whole facade is wearing thin
We'll just paper over cracks
'Til people take the power back
Moving out the cavalcade
We live to fight another day
See the arrows fly

They tempt you with a prize
Make you master of the house
You look so indifferent now
With the sucker hanging from your mouth
But you can't be safe
You can't betray your will
We're almost gone
It's time to take over the hill

The archer fires away (Send an arrow up)
We hope to rise again (Like an invitation)
Aim high
When the colors come down
Take out
The pale imitation

The whole facade is wearing thin
We just paper over cracks
'Til people take the power back
Moving out the cavalcade
We live to fight another day

See the archer's arrows fade (Hey, hey)
See the archer's arrows fade (Hey, hey)
See the archer's arrows fade (Soon find out if we make a mark)
See the archer's arrows fade (Soon find out, leave an arrow in my heart)
See the archer's arrows fade
See the archer's arrows fade (Hey, hey)
