The rain ran down my back as I lay in a ditch watching the helicopter pass, I knew then that I would be fighting these demons till the last.
But my fetch the fox had taught me his tricks, how to avoid the hunters hounds and give them the flick.
I’m here alive twenty years later, you didn’t expect that, you expected me to burn in my youth not grow old and fat.
So I sit between today and tomorrow and for once my heart has hope not sorrow, and I’m stringing my arrow.
