Rain King

When I think of heaven, deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of flying
Down in a sea of pins and feathers and all other instruments
Of faith and sex and God in the belly of a black-winged bird

Don’t try to feed me, ’cause I’ve been here before
And I deserve a little more!

I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She’s been crying and I’ve been thinking … and I
Am the rain king!

And I said mama, mama, mama, why am I so alone?
I can’t go outside I’m scared I might not make it home!
I’m alive, I’m alive but I’m sinking in
If there’s anyone at home at your place, darling why don’t you invite me in?

Don’t try to bleed me – I’ve been there before
And I deserve a little more!

I belong in the service of the Queen!
I belong anywhere but in between
She’s been lying and I’ve been sinking … and I
Am the rain king!

Hey, I only want the same as anyone
Henderson is waiting for the sun
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends
After all the dreaming I come home again

When I think of heaven, deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of dying
Lay me down in a field of flame and heather; render up my body
Into the burning heart of God in the belly of a black-winged bird

Don’t try to bleed me – I’ve been there before
And I deserve a little more!

I belong in the service of the Queen!
I belong anywhere but in between
She’s been lying and I’ve been drinking … and I
Am the rain king!
