[Chorus x 2]
Everyone wants to get out of the rain
Wants to be free, wants to see no more pain
We're guaranteed that the season will change
'Till then, I'm keeping sunshine on my brain
When the drops hit my head they leave a stain
Everyone wants to get out of the rain
We cannot avoid nature's bleeding vein
But I smile while it trickles down the rain

Harvested love only comes after rain
Even though it brings overwhelming strain
It falls from all skies so I can't complain
Without it, our growth would not be the same
Most people like to have someone to blame
But it falls randomly, not taking aim
It makes up one half of the yin and yang
Without the water, you can't have the flame
Without the water, you can't have the flame
Some are content holding ground in their game
But when my soul steps to exit this frame
I will be reincarnated as


Harvested thought only comes after rain
Artists may talk and give it different names
When they appear wet, they may feel ashamed

So they don't walk but instead take the train
And when that ride stops they notice the strange
Sense of degeneration they've obtained
While the world evolves, they stand and turn lame
Storm is prerequisite to mental gain
Storm is prerequisite to mental gain
Philosophy's life
That's simple and plain
Poets play with words to keep themselves sane
You do your thing while the clouds pour the


Harvested skill only comes after rain
Architects build under sun, so they claim
But when the puddles decided to hang
Is when their hands sketched the plans that remained
Every man secretly hopes he can tame
The beast he fears most 'cause it can't be slain
Towering, gray faces laugh so deranged
One day we all will break free from their chains
One day we all will break free from their chains
And rise towards the sun with good health sustained
It's almost impossible to explain
But I owe all my success to the

    General CommentI love this song, it deserves a comment or two...

    To me, the rain represents the hurts, pains and suffering that all humans experience. By nature, we don't like it and try to avoid it. We would prefer to be happy and carefree all the time. But as Eyedea points out, without the rain, the pain and suffering, we cannot truly appreciate the sunshine, the happiness in our lives. We know that we can never be happy all the time, but just the same, sadness fades too and the "seasons change." He also comments that people try to hide when they feel down. We don’t want to show others when we’re hurting. The later parts of the song describe how "the rain" can be a good source of inspiration. He mentions architects and poets. Clearly the rain has inspired him as well with the line "I owe all my success to the rain."

    General CommentImportant to note that the actual track names on the CD and the track names on Eyedea and Abilities website differ. I'd go with the CD. Someone probably just put them on their site wrong. This should be titled Sovereignty, the song before it is Liquid.
