lyrics

[verse - Ari]
raining on a, raining on a, raining on a, raining on
staring out my windowpane, wait for days when pain is gone
train of thought is fraught with what they taught me up at college
passin out from knowledge, collaging all my follies till I’m falling
falling
falling like the rain up the streets x 2

upon the streets the rainy rivulets collect in liquid strains
dripping into sewer drains, the streamy scene is picturesque
yet its newer names for different sames, coursing blood in bluish veins
and somewhere corporate man sifts resumes and hopes he picks the best
cog in the, c-cog in the, c-cog in the machine
somewhere smokey teens are busy coughin up a spleen
well if media’s the mode of thought then klonopins the mean
clogging up cacophonies of dreams
down esophagi slide the slimey raindrops of Pfizer
the pill pops and bottle caps throttle past the child locks
file-drops and drop box mock concerns of sage and wiser geriatrics
mumbling something onslaught avalanche of plastic
its drastic, it’s tragic, tragicomic comedy
come with me to walk and we can survey all the oddities
Mcdonalds bought the colonies, now autumn falls with dollar leaves
owned by what we own like we inverted apostrophes
the sky is raining punctuation
question marks pock the cresting waves of undulation
and out my window, the world is full of raininess
I recollect my breath before considering my cadences

waiting on a, waiting on a, waiting on a season change
reasons rearrange but pangs of angst they stay the same
full of madness, full of madness, maladjusted to the average
shun the rights of passage meant to civilize the savage, blah blah blah blah
flowing roses out my cabbage
flowers pass the days as all their petals pass away
pastel colored palindromes, racecars tides and gramophones
it’s waves in spinning circles
waves in spinning circles
pastel colored palindromes, racecars tides and gramophones
pattering my window is a rain of pinkish purple
I hide behind abstraction (la la la)
I am not whole I am a fraction (la la)
I hide behind abstraction
I am not whole I am a fraction

[sax interlude - smokey]

[reprieve – Ari]
raining on a, raining on a, raining on a, raining on
staring out my windowpane, wait for days when pain is gone
train of thought is fraught with what they taught me up at college
passin out from knowledge, collaging all my follies till I’m falling
falling
falling like the rain up the streets x 2
