"Cloudy Now" as written by and Steven Wilson Aviv Geffen....
In a violent place
We can call our country
There's a mixed up man
And I guess that's me
The sun's in the sky
But the storm no seems to end.

Its a place of sorrow
That we call it a home
In the darkest thoughts
Yeah, I guess their my own
There is welth in the bank
But there is nothing sure inside.

Its cloudy now
Its cloudy now
Its cloudy now
Its getting cloudy now

In a special place
That I call my life
My father is cruel and he lost his wife
But I don't see either
Cause I live a cross the street

Its a beautiful thing when it starts to rain
The man who drinks
Just to drown the pain
And I can't stop from dreaming
Of something else.

Its cloudy now
Its cloudy now
Its getting cloudy now
Its cloudy now
Its cloudy now
Its getting cloudy now

We are a fucked up generation
Its cloudy now

    General CommentI have to agree that this song is about Israel and what is going on in the world with war torn generation of the last decade and a half.

    General CommentThe lines 'i dont see either because i live across the street' is brilliant, for some reason this is the line that really makes me sit up and listen, except for obviously the last.

    General CommentI love this song of all my heart. Though the lyrics are wrong here.
    The correct ones:

    "In a violent place we can call our country
    Is a mixed up man and I guess that's me
    The sun's in the sky, but the storm never seems to end
    It's a place of sorrow but we call it a home
    In the darkest thoughts, yeah I guess they're my own
    There's wealth in the bank, but there is nothing show inside


    It's cloudy now
    It's cloudy now
    It's cloudy now
    It's getting cloudy now

    In a special place that I call my life
    The father was cruel and he lost his wife
    But I don't see either 'cos I live across the street
    It's a beautiful thing when it starts to rain
    A man who drinks just to drown the pain
    And I can't stop from dreaming there's something else.

    We are a fucked up generation
    It' cloudy now
    A fucked up generation
    It' cloudy now
    We gotta get out of here
    It's cloudy now
    A fucked up generation
    It's cloudy now"


    Written down exactly like that. Though they do sing
    It's cloudy now
    (The sun's in the sky, but the storm never seems to end)
    It's cloudy now
    It's cloudy now
    (And I can't stop from dreaming there's something else)
    It's getting cloudy now before "It's a fucked up generation", but that isn't written in the booklet. Hah.

    I'll be submitting correct versions of all of the incorrect lyrics of Blackfield. In the comments. Sorry for being an ass. ;)

    General CommentI can't seem to understand the line: 'but i dont see either because i live across the street'
    Can anybody explain?

    General CommentTo answer your question Noam, I think that living across the street is a figurative way of saying that he (Aviv) thinks differently from his parents, and thus, he cannot see things through his parents' eyes.

    General CommentI always thought the line "but I don't see either because I live across the street" was about how close we in relation to one another, at a physical and emotional level, but how our indifference/ inward focus leaves us miles apart.
