When I think of heaven, deliver me in a black-winged bird,
I think of flying, down into a sea of pins and feathers,
And all other instruments of faith and sex and God,
In the belly of a black-winged bird, don't try to feed me,
'Cause I've been here before and I deserve a little more.

I belong in the service of the Queen,
I belong anywhere but in between,
She's been crying , I've been thinking,
And I am the Rain King.

Well I said, mama, mama, mama,
Why am I so alone? well I can't go outside,
I'm scared I might not make it home,
But I'm alive, I'm alive, but I'm sinking in,
If there's anyone at home at your place darlin'
Why don't you invite me in? don't try to bleed me,
'Cause I've been there before and I deserve a little more.

I belong in the service of the Queen,
I belong anywhere but in between,
She's been lying, I've been sinking,
And I am the Rain King.

Hey, I only want the same as anyone,
Henderson is waiting for the sun,
Oh it seems night endlessly begins and ends,
After all the dreaming I come home again.

When I think of heaven, deliver me in a black-winged bird,
I think of dying, lay me down in a field of flame and heather,
Render up my body into the burning heart of God
In the belly of a black-winged bird, don't try to bleed me,
'cause I've been here before and I deserve a little more.

I belong in the service of the Queen,
I belong anywhere but in between,
She's been dying and I've been drinking
And I am the Rain King,
Well I said I am the rain king,
Well I said I, I, I, I, I yeah,
Well I am the rain king, yeah.
