Pain of Salvation /

Enter Rain

RUNNING

In just a year another storm will come
to wash away an inch more blood
its lack of hatred, politics or creed
left us blind
open wide
our gun hands tied
for this old world has seen the worst of us
its love worn thinner by the day
and every ounce of havoc
that we wreaked upon it
got the best of us
oh, and the rest is for us
let it rain...
enter rain...
exit pain
in seven years ago I’ll see a man
a moment stretched out over years
his eyes just flicker
and then something’s changed
an empty cage
a crimson bud
sprung out in mud
let it rain
in just ten minutes I will see a child
buying milk all dressed in rags
and without thinking he will
cover up his naked hand
to the cold
oh, and that gives me hope
let it rain...
enter rain...
exit pain

STANDING
And the rain will wash us to the bone
leaving thousands in its trail
cleansing all the flesh wounds
of our time
of every crime
of every pound of dust and grime
in two seconds I will hit the ground
a moment stretched out over years
and my eyes will flicker
and then something has changed
an empty cage
a crimson bud
a street of blood
a city rose sprung out to greet the rain
you’ll never remember my name
but I will love you just the same
you’ll never remember my name
but I love you just the same
just the same
just the same
you’ll never remember my name
but I love you just the same
just the same

FALLING
enter rain...
(a city rose)
(a street of blood)
in two seconds I will hit the ground...
