the bow and the arrow lyrics – dark tranquillity

the print you left
up here just witnessed
to the forcefull push
in which you thrust yourself
out from this world
your own very being
launched away from this temporary hold

you are never gone
the letters of your name
a scar that never heals

so be the bow and the arrow
be the rope and the endless scream
this time there is a way
to the end that craves
when indifferent winds lead me
to the lands of uncertainty
to hold what can’t be held
against the coming dark

in the march of the hollow, hollowed out
your words are not so true

you are never gone
the letters of your name
a scar that never heals
you are never gone
for you i’ll always know
behold you without heart

they’re lost to tremors
to the pages of words
your voice unheard
from the empty void

witness the feelings
your body to lose in the darkness
brief as a razor
within it’s walls of skin
to the end and forever
to the end

you are never gone
the letters of your name
a scar that never heals

so be the bow and the arrow
be the rope and the endless screams
when indiferent winds lead me
to the lands of uncertainty
you are never gone
