Falls down slowly,
Seeps into the ground,
Isn't just flowing water,
Won't stop until your brain is found
Seeps into your little green eyes,
'til it meets your brain,
Runnin' through all of your brain cells,
'til it drives you insane
Acid...acid rain,
Falls down slowly,
Seeps into your mind,
Falls down slowly,
Seeps into your little green eyes,
Till it meets your brain,
Runnin' through all of your brain cells,
Till it drives you insane,
Acid...acid rain
Falls down slowly,
Seeps into your mind,
Falls down slowly

    General CommentYeah, this song kicks ass. It's just sounds like how silverchair would be playing in their garage before they were famous.

    It's about people around you like your friends taking acid and not really knowing the consequences. its kinda like a warning to them to be careful and hoping that they will not freak out and end up in a mental hospital.

    General CommentI really like this song.... just an all-around good vibe. I think this song is about like a fictional supernatural event or someting where what was once life-sustaining (rain) now starts screwing people up.

    General CommentI think this song is about taking acid and how when you take it, it rushes to your brain and can eventually drive you insane.

    General CommentDaniel seemed depressed at this time? From what I've heard from his music he's a pretty emotional person in general. I'm a pretty happy person, but I get really thoughtful about life and the issues we've got to deal with and I get emotional, or what you'd call depressed, because the times we live in are shit, but I don't call it depression I call it being aware of what is actually going on in the world and not blocking it out.
