"Feel Like Rain" as written by and Joshua Allen Cain Justin Pierre Courtney....
And we feel like rain,
When the words all sound the same,
In the lifeless corners of this empty frame.

Though we feel let down,
By the same old autumn breathing.
Winter's curse is just around the bend.
With our hands all tied,
To the blades of their design.
We are armed and ready to commit this crime.

We love that game but we never play
Cause we will lose and we want to stay
The way we are
The way we've been for far too long.

From the falsest smile,
To the fear of death is why
The pain reminds us that we're still alive.
With our hopes on hold,
And our lack of interest exposed,
All hands damage our determined eyes.
But the lines are drawn,
And the red begins to creep
Its way from boredom toward apathy.

We love that game but we never play
Cause we will lose and we want to stay
The way we are
The way we've been for far too long.

We love that game but we never play
Cause we will lose and we want to stay
The way we are
The way we've been for far too long.

Say something, finally we're alone.
Alright is there anyone out there at all?
Say something finally we're alone.
How about a phone call now?

We love that game but we never play
Cause we will lose and we want to stay
The way we are,
The way we've been for far too long.

We love that game but we never play
Cause we will lose and we want to stay
The way we are,
The way we've been for far too long.

We love that game but we never play
Cause we will lose and we want to stay
The way we are

And we feel like rain,
When the words all sound the same.
As the curtain closes on another day

    Song MeaningIn my opinion, this song is about the game of life. So many people are afraid to create their own futures and live a life of freedom. Most people don't take chances because they are afraid of failing and/or succeeding. On top of that, people tend to find a comfort zone and stick with it. It's easy to think about the past, how it used to be, and wish it was that way again. The hardest part is playing the game, but you'll never win if you don't take action.

    And we feel like rain,
    When the words all sound the same,
    In the lifeless corners of this empty frame.

    Though we feel let down,
    by the same old autumn breathing.
    Winter's curse is just around the bend.
    With our hands all tied,
    to the blades of their design.
    We are armed and ready to commit this crime.

    and

    From the falsest smile,
    to the fear of death is why
    the pain reminds us that we're still alive.
    With our hopes on hold,
    and our lack of interest exposed,
    all hands damage our determined eyes.
    But the lines are drawn,
    and the red begins to creep
    its way from boredom toward apathy.

    General Commentnot sure about this but:

    We love that game, but we never play
    'Cause we will lose and we wanna stay
    The way we are, the way we've been
    For far too long

    this made it sound kind of like a song about two people who liked each other but knew they wouldnt work out, so they didnt push the relationship because they dont want to ruin it

    General CommentI'm almost sure that this song is about them getting tired of being what everyone else wants them to be, what they were designed to be.

    With our hands all tied,
    To the blades of their design,

    Means that they are tied down to what everyone wants them to be, and that they have to be that day after day.

    Oh, and that's also why they feel like rain, because rain just does the same thing over and over again.

    General CommentJustin's lyrics are so smart and so beautiful. I think that it's about two people in a relationship who are forced to be what everyone thinks they should be and they're bored with it but at the same time they don't want to change the way they are at the moment. MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK ROCKS!!!!

    General CommentI see it as them being in a relationship that they feel isn't working but they're more afraid to go out and try something different than they are to be stuck with something mediocre.

    General Comment"And we feel like rain,
    When the words all sound the same,
    In the lifeless corners of this empty frame"

    Things are hitting me. But everything is just the same as it's always been. I can't stand it

    "Though we feel let down,
    On the table, hard of breathing,
    Winter's curse is just around the bend"

    Thought it feels like things will never change, it can get cold..worse

    "With our hands all tied,
    To the blades of their design,
    We are armed and ready to commit this crime"

    Those lines are deffinetly about cutting
    the emtiness makes then want to feel, so they prepare

    "We love that game, but we never play
    'Cause we will lose and we wanna stay
    The way we are, the way we've been
    For far too long"

    We can't give up on what we know. Won't take chances, no matter how much we might love to. Because we're afraid of change. even though we never had anything in the first place.

    "From the falsest smile,
    To the fear of death is why,
    The pain reminds us that we're still alive"

    Cutting again. The pain they inflict on themeselvs tells then they are alive. That they can feel. They arn't void of all emotions.

    "With our hopes on hold,
    And our lack of interest exposed,
    All hands damage our determined eyes."

    We've lost all we've wanted. given up on hope. Stopped caring. Nothing helps, every attempt leaves us further damadged.

    "With the lines all drawn,
    And the red begins to creep,
    It's way from boredom twards apathy"

    Again...cutting. The cutts are starting to bleed. Because apathy has replaced empathy.

    "Say something"
    " finally we're alone"
    "Alright"
    " is there anyone out there at all?"
    "Say something"
    " finally we're alone"
    "How 'bout a phone call now?""

    this is a conversation. The two apathetic lovers who had given up on hope and are afraid of change feel they are alone together in this pain they feel. They search for support in eachother


    "We love that game but we never play
    'Cause we will lose and we wanna stay
    The way we are?"

    And we still dont' want to change it. It's to scary a though

    "And we feel like rain,
    When the words all sound the same,
    As the curtain closes on another day "

    And it never changes...every day remains the same.

    General CommentAs much as it pains me to see it, I think you're right about the cutting. Even the "rain" strikes me as a blood analogy now.

    And in that case, the chorus probably refers to him having a history of cutting and the ultimate realization that it could end badly which caused him to stop, even though the urges keep coming.
