AND IT RAINED ALL NIGHT

And it rained all night and washed the filth away
Down New York air conditioned drains
Of the click click clack
Of the heavy black trains
A million engines in neutral

 

Of the tick tock tick
Of the ticking time bomb
50 feet of concrete underground
One little leak becomes a lake
Says the tiny voice in my earpiece

 

So i give in to the rhythm
The click click clack
Im too wasted
Too far back
Oh tick tock goes the pendulum
On the old grandfather clock

 

I
I can see you
But i can never reach you

 

And it rained all night and then all day
The drops are the size of your hands and face
The worms come out
To see what's up
We pull the cars up from the river

 

Its relentless
Invisible
Indefatigable
Indisputable
Undeniable
So how come it looks
So beautiful
How come the moon falls from the sky

 

I
I can see you
But i can never reach you

 

I
I can see you
But i can never reach you
