Rain King
When I think of heaven, deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of flying, down into a sea of pens 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
Why am I so alone? can't go outside
'Cause I'm scared I might not make it home
But I'm alive, yeah, look at me I'm sinking in
If there's anyone at home at your place darlin'
Hey come on, come on, come on don't try to bleed me
'Cause look 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
Mr. Henderson is just waiting for the sun
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends
And ends and begins and begins and ends and ends and begins
Well after all the dreaming I come home again

I said shine, shine, look what I've found
Your eyes are taking me out of bounds
Shine, shine look what I've found
Ah he so shy, shy but look what I've found
Your eyes taking me out of bounds
Shine, shine look what I've found

She said when I think of heaven
She said, she said, when I think of heaven
She said, she said when I think of heaven
She said, she said I think of you
How come you don't think of me too?
And I said 'you know, it's
'Cause 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
But don't try to bleed me
'Cause look 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
I said I am the rain king
Hey I said, goodnight Elisabeth
I'm so sorry now, but I am the Rain King
She said, well why don't you just come in out of the rain?

'Hey! Whats up? so ah this is ah, this is the last show of our
American tours and after this we're gonna take a trip over to
Europe for a month then we're gonna take some time off and
Write some songs and well we'll see ya again when we get a new record'
