Rain...
Home!

6:46 in the morning, 747 in the sky
There’s no riot going down along Broadway, as the innocent pass you by, home

Stay below the city lights x 8

5:45 in the PM, kid with stratocaster on the train
Well there’s no light at the end of his work-a-day
Cuz the war’s not over, no the war’s not over

He’s not gonna play
With his trademark strumming, yeah we all keep running and eternal race
With no skin nor stones nor security of bones just to break my fall
No we’ll never stop the rain and we’ll never smash the state but
One day, we’ll go to sleep before sunrise
Dark moon, no view of the skyline
One chance, warm place
Take flight within a dark room, no view of the city lights

Stay below the city lights x 8
And just come out, come out, show them, draining the blood, it won’t come out

The last hoorah, nobody picks up the paper anymore, it says,
We’re at war with the tide
She comes in, breaks the levees, floods the town, what can you do
Strums his guitar like a martyr, not a soul will listen to his words
Are we not plunging towards the water?
Now he’s screaming no more, man, he’s nero with that fiddle

He’s not gonna play
With his trademark strumming, yeah we all keep running and eternal race
With no skin nor stones nor security of bones just to break my fall
No we’ll never stop the rain and we’ll never smash the state but
One day, we’ll go to sleep before sunrise
Dark moon, no view of the skyline
One chance, warm place
Take flight within a dark room, no view of the city lights
Stay below the city lights x 8
And just come out, come out, show them, draining the blood, it won’t come out

Nice new home for all the city rats and millionaires and bureaucrats
You’re welcome, for how we all fucked off
I turn my radio up loud
Tried to take some modest incremental steps but as we talked the land got wet
I’m sorry for how we all fucked off
I turn my radio up, but there’s no rock n’ roll left, just static haze

It’s time
Rain

And now it’s gonna rain
But the train’s not coming and we all keep running this eternal race
With no skin nor stones nor security of bones just to break my fall
No we’ll never stop the rain and we’ll never smash the state but
One day, we’ll go to sleep before sunrise
Dark moon, no view of the skyline
One chance, warm place
Take flight within a dark room, no view of the city lights

Stay below the city lights x 8

And just come out, come out, show them, dragging the lake it won’t, draining the blood, it won’t come out
