Life is swallowed up, sitting deep in the belly of winter
We all walk round and over and over our shoulders
Stinging glance of winters face

The frost hydrates the rusty shapes of an old crippled ford
That's the car we don't drive no more
The trees just stripped to the bone by the same rain that washes wooden names off homemade graves,
It's demolition time when it rains

Power's gone out so we can start a fire
Doing the storms that rocks like the wars, outside
You need to stop dropping rocks from the mountain side
Doing the storms that rocks like the wars, outside

Wake me up, in the summer not in the winter
With hail as the nails to nail down the floor boards,
I hear the wind roar all the way though December

The wind as the choir, the snows getting higher
The house is on fire, and I'm still cold inside.

Power's gone out so we can start a fire
Doing the storms that rocks like the wars, outside
You need to stop dropping rocks from the mountain side
Doing the storms that rocks like the wars, outside

We only talk about the weather
Stormy day we just complain
While outside it's looking better
It's inside we stand out in the rain, stand out in the rain.

It's just a thunderstorm baby, there's nothing you should fear
The sky's broken
Raindrops on my windowpane like music to my ears
It's wide open
If the clouds turn brighter days into a more minor refrain
It's still a song
We can stand out in the storm and fill this bottle full of rain and sing along
And sing along
