Wind of fate has pried us loose
Light of mercy hurts my eyes
Is it worth the things you lose
To board the train and watch the sky

I sing myself to sleep at night
I sing myself to sleep

Another song about the rain
Coming down it burns through me
Another song about the rain

Got a line straight from my heart
Another time it went to you
Another place where we were smart
Before the flood and time was through

I sing myself to sleep at night
I sing myself to sleep

Another song about the rain
Coming down it burns through me
Another song about the rain

Sorry now I never made you see
Sorry now sounds so far away
Will our child cry for me
When he hears the dragon's flame

Highway flares make red the streets
My fingers spin the dial again
But every station's on to me
Another song about the rain

Another song about the rain
Coming down it burns through me
Another song about the rain
It never rained so viciously

    General CommentTo me, this song deals with the inevitable flow of relationships (not necessarily romantic) throughout life. The singer is so jaded he no longer sees this as within his control, but simply as a working of "fate".

    "Is it worth the things you lose
    To board the train and watch the sky"
    I see this as referring to an inexorable desire to abandon the past, abandon connections, and focus only only the infinite flow of time, the sky. But is it worth it?

    The song then delves into a prior relationship, the ravages of which leave the singer consoling himself through song each night. However, every song is about 'the rain'- both in his head and on the radio. The rain, to me, is the multitude of sorrows every person must face, mounting up on the singer in a vicious storm. Not just the sorrows of an individual, but those of everyone.

    General CommentGenerally, songs about rain refer to tears falling, or crying. I don't believe this one is outside of that. However, I have a bit of a "twist", and see a Biblical interpretation. The line "Got a line straight from my heart
    Another time it went to you Another place where we were smart
    Before the flood and time was through" could be interpreted as our connection with God, which was severed via the original sin, and leading up to the Great Flood of Noah. We go through life trying to reconnect, but are continuously reminded of why we were disconnected. "Will our child cry for me
    When he hears the dragon's flame" implicates the second coming of Christ, and the question of whether or not we are personally worthy of redemption.

    Basically @inteleckshual has it right, but perhaps this, like so many others, has a dual meaning.
