Foo Fighters - Arrows Lyrics




She was a friend of mine
Alone on a dead end street
Dancing through life
On the front lines

She led a quiet life
Ends, they don't always meet
Years passed her by
Waiting to rise

She had arrows in her eyes
Fear where her heart should be
War in her mind

Arrows in her eyes
Fear where her heart should be
War in her mind
Shame in her cries

Arrows in her eyes
Tears in her arteries
War in her mind
Shame as she cries
Fire away

Under a silent light
Screaming biology
Queen Gemini
The world in her sights

I want a new life
Forming inside of me
Blessed and born
Into this fire

You had arrows in your eyes
Fear where your heart should be
War in your mind

Arrows in your eyes
Fear where your heart should be
War in your mind
Shame in your cries

Arrows in your eyes
Tears in your arteries
War in your mind
Shame as you cry
Fire away

Arrows in her eyes
Fear where her heart should be
War in her mind
Shame in her cries

Arrows in her eyes
Tears in her arteries
War in her mind
Shame as she cries
Fire away

    Teen wolf Alison’s sonh

    This song is fantastic. Nearly perfect. Start to finish, one of the best songs I've heard in a long time.

  31. Kimberly Daniels

    Not a big Foo Fighters fan, like a few of their songs, but I LOVE this song.

  32. Sam Holliday

    Foo Fighters went to Greg Kurstin for the producer of this album. I still think they should of went to Bob Rock or Butch Vig

  33. Mario Angelo

    I will like this song in 2018

  34. Justin Hall

    Artwork. Beautiful song .

  35. someone noone

    the first song i picked to make single... pointed out everling as a stand out track on color and the shape so i know single tracks... the sophisticated evolution of dave grohls music talent with good fighters is significant with this album. there's the drums he is known for and always new gutsy riffs... never thought is see the same kid from Richmond that broke dowm the set in in bloom progress here... thanks and who are some of the backing vocals talent...

  36. Michael Grove

    this album is shocking compared to wasting light

  37. Craigie Smalls

    Foo for rock hall of fame

  38. Ashli Womack

    I wish I didn't relate to this song as much as I do

  39. peter graham

    the lead singer in this band get on my nerves for some reason. Don't know why. He just comes over like a teenager still in middle age.

  40. Cherub 1979

    This sounds so mysthic and spiritual

  41. melanie townsend

    baby/ya'll / whoever/ someone find me a babysitter!!! jk , kind of.... I listen to this song, I'm a student for full time bachelors in pysch, no one is approved for the day care. but this song is about me. full time mom, online student, keep up with their school schedules, and my schedule as well. and the father needs to be dead as opposed to viable for attention.

  42. Gene Bacon

    This is becoming my favorite song on the album.

  43. Dominique Becerril

    I never was a fan of foo fighters, there old stuf is kind of sloppy in my opinion. But I'm always open to new good stuff, and i wouldn't be surprised if this was nominated album of the year.

  44. Legends Pine Ln

    The Cult :) kinda , right lol

  45. Phantom Tonberry

    This one belongs on everyone's Foo playlist! :D

  46. iambetterthentiger

    Dave Grohl said this song was about Hillary Clinton. Like him even more now.

    Chazzwassah

    After going back and reading the lyrics, I could see that. Not flattering, by any means! lol Thumbs up, Dave.

  47. Rachel Grohl

    anyone else get the vibe that this is about his wife, Jordyn?  Easily my favorite song off the new album.  Saw them a few days ago. They had just come off a week long break so they blessed us with a 3 hour show :)

  48. Melissa Brown Blaeuer

    Love this song!!!! ~~~ It makes me remember The Women’s March back in January, the day after Dumpf was sworn in.

  49. Sam G.

    This album sounds like shit. Fuck the new Foo's. Prophets of Rage are better than this crap.

  50. Tom Dolan

    Mantra evolves with words....great tune/vibe

  51. Mitchel Larrabee

    I discovered this song at the movies

  52. Jodi Lane

    Fucking amazing and souldripping!!

  53. Samson N

    What a song. This and Zero Hour are my faves on the record. The record is fucking great too.

  54. eldiego1990

    2:10 I should have known. Anyone?

  55. Chris Christenson

    There is something haunting about this song that just hits the core... not the lyrics per se, the song just speaks in an ethereal voice...

  56. Mike Zuehlke

    Dramatic, Intense. Bold...no creamer or sugar needed...Epic FOO!

  57. extratroppo437

    This is such a Foo Fighters song

  58. Jamilah Abdul Rashid

    3:20 now that is sexy

  59. evanisovich

    Holy fuckballs, this is good. I got the album on vinyl and played this song back just the *teensiest* bit slower than the CD. Wow. Totally hit the sweet spot of auditory bliss.

    Jodi Lane

    evanisovich yeah my dude bought me the vinyl and a record player for my bday in sept and its just pure bliss!!

  60. TheNoot

    This song gets better every time I listen to it. On an album full of great songs, this one really stands out.

  61. Nick

    Took me quite a few listens to really dig this song. One of if not the best new tune.

  62. Shadow Serpent

    beeper2040

    Thanks a bunch

    La Potato

    interesting how "Fear where her heart should be" and "Tears in her arteries" have the same syllable count but the latter is more similar to the other lines in the stanza.

    word lengths are strange

  63. Nicholas Salinas

    Another great foo instant classic

  64. Will Pepper

    sunsa bitchss

  65. Juan Escarcha

    Am I the only one that hears some of Queens Of The Stone Age vibe at the begining??

    Karlee Kanz

    Yesssssuhhhhhhh. -drools-

  66. Hiesenberg Walt

    Hillary.?

  67. Raj Haz

    Fave song off the album for sure

  68. Montse Ggc

    This song has me crying on the floor

  69. Kingdavid1001

    This album is so good

  70. KaraoYoshi

    not sure if 6/8, 10/8 alternating or just 16/8 either way love the off kilter lilt.

    JeremyDRUMS

    sounds like 4/4 to me.

    DrDrums Wer

    3/4-3/4-2/4 basically what you say!

  71. Abraham Ruiz

    this song is the love child of In Your Honor and Arlandria

    Anthony Tran

    abraham ruiz and one by one imo

  72. Cameron Deleeuw

    My shit

    Brian Davis Sr.

    Cameron Deleeuw my shitt what does that mean dumbass

  73. piercedmarine

    This sounds like something that could be on In Your Honor (because of the mixing).

  74. The BLACK bucket show!

    Hasta ahorita todo bien con el album... aunque no entiendo por que tiene dislikes..??

  75. Jackson Geary

    Anyone getting that Arlandria vibe from Wasting Light?

    Simon M. Davis

    I personally hear a little bit of almost Cheer Up Boys

    Abraham Ruiz

    in the pre chorus? also, how did you feel about Dan stepping down? ;)

    Jackson Geary

    ya around 1:01 and also its kinda played in the same key so I get that feeling

    Ty Manning

    Jackson Geary Some of the unison bends on the notes are a bit similar.

    Abraham Obregón

    I have always feel this song like an Arlandria's & Outside's brother.

  76. Eli Kirk

    So glad they're writing human songs instead of geographical songs. Not that SH was necessarily bad, but it lacked the emotion and authenticity that makes them my favorite band. This album is epic.

    Ashli Womack

    Eli Kirk Completely agree. SH scared me. I was afraid they were ju s t trying to throw songs out

    Tamera Davis

    Bruh. SH is the first album I learned by heart. _Outside_ makes me cry. It made them my favorite band.

    Max Neale

    Sonic highways was pretty lame, except for feast and the famine which is a banger

    miss 2000

    Ok I can’t take you seriously if you use the word “banger.”

    Max Neale

    cool man

  77. Sweet Sour

    This whole album has a different feel but still FF great.
    Feels like this piece was written for me. 🎶

  78. Maya Nalezny

    IM OBSESSED WITH THIS ALBUM OMG IM DYING 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

    Polaris Pike

    Oh my god! You're dying!? Get to a hospital!

    Guy_Williams 4302

    Joel Wahl

    It's pretty damn amazing..

  79. Thomas Hamill

    Best song off the new album !!!

  80. kristi ayers

    Jeremy Watson

  81. Jeffrey Leeds

  82. Grace Kavanagh

  83. tommyb7973

  84. JJ Slicker

    This is some terrible Music !

    Sam Brunton

    JJ Slicker are u being serious or are you just a fucking spastic?

    S.A.M

    PRESS START

    Who called the blonde to the party lol jk

    kayla lol

    L҉i҉n҉k҉T҉o҉D҉e҉s҉t҉i҉n҉y҉ true

    Fabulous Killjoy

    You might want to try learning how to properly construct a sentence before insulting something, sweetheart. Just a suggestion

  85. Dweezil Bettencourt

    Guess I'm in the minority here. Not really overly impressed with anything off this cd. Don't like the overproducced sound or the burried vocals. Maybe after a few listens. But not a good sign when I'm skipping songs b4 they are done bcuz I'm bored.

    Balthizaur

    I don't mind that it's an album of songs that seem so different from each other. A little bit of everything for everyone, seeing what works. Who knows, maybe this album could be looking for what direction to take next.

    HangmanVa

    I feel that has less to do with the production (While I agree, the production here is absolutely suffocating the music), I think they reason we are both bored, is that these song are on average 3 minutes TOO LONG. Especially on tracks like 'The sky is a neighborhood' where they sing the chorus no less than 7 times, or 'Dirty Water', where it seems like they recorded two completely different version of the song, and decided to use them both. Regardless, Either someone new is writing the lyrics for these songs, or Dave is really just running out of things to say, which is understandable after writing songs for so long. It doesn't help that lyrical content has never really been an FF strong point.

    djhero0071

    I mean..... if it IS overproduced, you shouldn't be surprised. It WAS a pop producer that mixed the album after all. Same with the new QOTSA album

    BigPapaStalin

    U couldn't be more right, I love the Foo fighters so when I heard that they made a new album I had it pre-ordered...I was so disappointed, I liked run and the sky is a neighborhood but that was it for me

    Cory R

    Me too, especially with all the back up vocals. It gets a little busy and sounds like a studio made it more than a band.

  86. Ethan Sample

    Fuk yee

  87. NORRIN RADD

    FIIIIIRRRSSSTTTT!!!!!!! NICCCCCE!!!!

    randomness

    Nate Sotello what?

    Best song on the album

    Jason H.

    they are all great.great album

    Jessejeb

    Agreed. This song is the essence of FF their progressive sound.

  89. Mel Bailey

    This Song's got so much stank on it, It's unreal.

  90. WildSky

    And here's a song for the old fans.

    Kobey Furze

    WildSky it’s a new song?

    Luis Morales S

    From a brand new album :D

    Well, It was brand new last year jaja

    Jeff Harper

    One of the best songs on this album by far.

    Lord Lemon

    Jesse Cole thinking the same the same things thanks for saving me from wasting my time correcting these people

    Kryptor360

    Jesse Cole Was thinking the same, it doesn’t even match with Doll or February star. smh

  91. Tigiver

    Thats damn good

  92. Chris Ardizzone

    Easily my favorite song on the new record

  93. Shady Canadians

    Arrows in her eyes, fear where her heart should be, war in her mind, shame in her cries
    arrows in her eyes, tears in her arteries war in her mind, shame as ahe cries.

    King

    Shady Canadians FIRE AWAYYYYY

  95. Noah Heming

    Wooo I'm second to comment this song is so sick!!!!

    NORRIN RADD

    Gutair Guy uh no you're not.you're lame.

    Noah Heming

    Nate Sotello jeeze i was joking you try to joke around and someone ruins your day

    Noah Heming

    Nate Sotello and yes I am second

  96. DBZD

    Whoohoo! More new Foo! Can't wait till October 23rd! Fast approaching! Also first! Bam!

    DBZD

    Harry Pittman they play forever!! They rock out from start to finish until you get tired! You'll not be disappointed

    Harry Pittman

    I think I literally know every word to every foo song, even the B sides and every beat and chord, I'm so pumped, been waiting all my life for it! I want to die saying I've seen everlong played live by Dave Ghrol! I want to take a sign asking them to play either White Limo or stacked actors, two of my fav heavy songs, pretty underrated so I doubt it'd be on their setlist.

    DBZD

    Harry Pittman Yeah! Stacked Actors is a great one! The way they did at least one, maybe two shows I saw is that would go crazy, then do like an acoustic set, then go hard again. They had a stage with a walk out to the center with another stage. And they play forever! I always want them to play wattershed, alone + easy target, in your honor, or x static. They'll surprise you and pull some deep deep tracks

    Harry Pittman

    Sounds like one of the best experiences possible! I love the quieter simple stuff but the loud killer tracks are just made for the stage. This album has a good mix of songs that are both or that lean either way, and I know they'll play most of these songs and most of the greatest hits plus a couple more but there's like over 100 songs to play, I know it'll be one of the greatest days of my life.

    Fruity babies 420 Blazen'

    Hehehe pranked
