It’s raining, like there would be no tomorrow,
For all the laying battery cities and the present world order.
It didn’t rain for a long, long time,
The ground got dusty fissured, and dry.
Billions of slaves are groaning under the
Planetary work machine that eats in Africa,
Digests in Asia, shits in Europe and North America!

Yeah, North America!

The last lights are dimmed and the rain falls
On prisons on bourgeois cages and TV stations.
It’s pouring banks, and churches, and parliaments,
Cop patrol cars, divine monuments!
Tears fall down and thunder hits your door,
I’m without sleep in this desert of concrete.
Without sleep in this desert of concrete.

And we may guess what the rain cries out for,
What the rain cries out for!
And we may guess what the rain cries...
What the rain cries out for!
And we may guess what the rain cries out for,
What the rain cries out for!
And we may guess what the rain cries...
What the rain cries out for!

It’s raining, like there would be no tomorrow,
For all the laying battery cities and the present world order.
It didn’t rain for a long, long time,
The ground got dusty, fissured and dry.
Billions of slaves are groaning under the
Planetary work machine that eats in Africa,
Digests in Asia, shits in Europe and North America!

Go! Yeah, it’s raining again,
It’s raining again,
It’s raining again...

And we may guess what the rain cries out for,
What the rain cries out for!
And we may guess what the rain cries...
What the rain cries out for!
And we may guess what the rain cries out for,
What the rain cries out for!
And we may guess what the rain cries...
What the rain cries out for!

And we may guess! And we may guess!
And we may guess! What the rain cries out for!

    General CommentInlay notes say:
    One day when I was a kid I started to wonder why they were digging huge holes into the meadows next to our flat where I used to play with other kids. After some time new buildings were growing out of these holes, new blocks of flats in the same shape as ours. Ten new concrete blocks and a thousand more to come...
    Thirty new flats in every block and in every flat there’s a family living in isolation. A gilded cage for everyone! I got raised in one of these cages, conditioned inside and out by the same sexist, homophobic, religious, capitalist, bourgeois structures like out parents and every single one of us... raised by the same schools, by the same TV programs, by the same omnipresent ads, in the same delusion of safety born to be a consumer, wasted as the next fuel for their wars and in their factories and to watch their spectacles!!! Do you know the name of your neighbour?
