Rain Dance


It's nice to enjoy
What you are doing for a chance,
My very own new rain dance.

Bright lightning night.
Rolling thunder now.
Knowing my own answers, somehow.

Take pride in your ride
With your failing might,
Sharp reality strikes to acknowledge your plight
Knowing that you're right.

Watch the lightning
Through our smoke
Then scream out loud
    (on the) inside
