the priest and the matador lyrics – senses fail

here i lie
i’m staring at
clouds in shapes of
dogs and cats
i hear a woman
start to yell
oh dear god i
think he fell

i’m the arrow
shot straight to h*ll
from the bow of william tell
my body lies
kissing the ground
like a cross turned upside down

a priest is rushing
to my side
begins to read me
my last rites
father you’re too late
my faith is weak
so won’t you save your
half-hearted speech

i’m the arrow,
shot straight to h*ll
from the bow of william tell
my body lies
kissing the ground
like a cross turned upside down

a man bends down and says, “son
we’re gonna get through this one
take my hand and let us pray.”
i scream, “please get the f*ck away.”

i’m the arrow
shot straight to h*ll
from the bow of william tell
my body lies
kissing the ground
like a cross turned upside down

the ambulance is singing
as cops push back the crowd
i start to take my last breath
as blood pours out my mouth
the medics walk in my way
i think this could be it
i hear ’em start to state,
“the time of death is half past six.”

i’m the arrow
shot straight to h*ll
i’m the arrow
shot straight to h*ll
