Please let it rain today, my skin is so burned now
Cover me like a blanket covers her
Blue skies just go away, watch the birds all congregate
And let these waves break down this cell
And pull me back from hell

Its crowded in my head sometimes
It feels like, I’m already dead
Its crowded in my head sometimes
So take me, and lay me back down to bed
Please let it rain

The same old place, but it’s awful cold
Footsteps spread down this dead end road
Locked doors all surrounding me, I don’t know where I should be
So let these chains break down this cell
And pull me back from hell

- Chorus -

I told you that I didn’t really know
Which way that this dirt road goes
Bury me in another damn scene
Speak the words that you really mean
Only one of us just walks away
The other one’s left in a goddamn grave now
Pull the trigger don’t you ever let it linger
And lay my head on this concrete pillow

- Chorus -
