as I drive hell bent 'neath the sickle moon
scattering leaves in blood red hues
what tension shot me down this road
hell bent so far that I almost broke

I had once in mind to drag my bow
after hart and hind and stag and roe
if the shaft proved straight and my aim proved true
I would bring it all back home for you

(chorus:)
this arrow was my only weapon
this arrow guarded me quite well
this arrow held no earthly tether
no angel feather on a bat out of hell

and with focus narrowed down to will
and eyes cross-hatched against the kill
there are no sins I will atone
for muscle, sinew, gristle and bone

(repeat chorus)

and I rode and rode as clouds flew past
with six white horses all lathered and fast
my scars and marks have now worn smooth
for I am this arrow and it came for you

    General CommentI think what jack was trying to rate his children

    " as I drive hell bent 'neath the sickle moon
    scattering leaves in blood red hues"
    This is clearly a cry for help.

    " this arrow was my only weapon
    this arrow guarded me quite well"

    here he is obviously stating that miranda, his youngest, is infact his favorite child.

    General Commenti think Miranda is confused and is misunderstanding the aggressiveness of the song for being his favorite child, she is in fact, his least favorite...
