"Rain" as written by and Corey/gregoletto Beaulieu....
Every time I'm left alone
My misery begins to drown me
Tied by a rope of anxiety
Thrown overboard

As I'm pulled under the tides of this fast paced world
I refuse to see

Time will always be the thing that kills me truly
Open these eyes waking from a dream feigning

My lungs fill up with letdown
Disappointment in self and everyone
Expectation died in failure
Abandonment my unsavior

As I'm pulled under the tides of this fast paced world
I refuse to see

Time will always be the thing that kills me truly
Open these eyes waking from a dream feigning

Absolution at the sight of your demise
I know what I must do
Choke
Die choking on your every word
Swallow every blasphemy
Absolution at the sight of your demise
I know what I must do
Swallow every blasphemy

Eat out your heart and make it bleed
Tie the noose around my neck
Make this life end

    General Comment"Rain is a very personal track about the way I felt about life during a period where I spent much of my time alone - agonizing in anxiety and boredom, failed expectations and treachery from so many I confided in. It seemed like all the while that I was going through this, the whole world kept moving along, happy and content with itself. The last lines of the song are to the world's happiness personified- and all I wanted to do was to kill that happiness, choke out it's every last breath."-Matt Heafy. (lead singer)
    I got this meaning of the Trivium website, So thats the real meaning..! =)

    General CommentI thought it shows the sight of a dying god. He dies cause nobody believes in him.

    In the end-part of the song he sings "swallow every blasphemy" (blasphemy=disrespecting of a god) and that doesn't make sense to what matt said about this song.
    Or he abuses god then would it make sense.
