Never 21 when everyone\'s a sailor
Coming up strong with the animal bar
Ever loving more with mr.norman mailer
Turn another page at the animal bar
And it wont be long
No it wont be long
No it wont be long
Because it can\'t be long

Ah ah ah the cry of isolation
Ah ah ah the higher meditation
Ah ah ah the sweet precipitation
Ah ah ah the higher depravation
And it wont be long
No it wont be long
No it wont be long
Because it can't be long

Chorus:
Rain on my frustration
Stake my queen now break this
Wash me down my station
Make more rain forsaken
Read between the sky and every piece of the earth
1 2 3 lets make this
Coming through the world i got a feeling of words
1 2 3 forsake this


All aboard the ship cause
Your going to need arc when
The wet comes down youll be swimming like a shark
Mopping up the pain when im a little older
Right as rain at the animal bar
And it wont be long
No it wont be long
No it wont be long
Because it can't be long


Ah ah ah the cry of isolation
Ah ah ah the higher meditation
Ah ah ah the mild precipitation
Ah ah ah the higher depravation
And it wont be long
No it wont be long
No it wont be long
Because it can't be long

Chorus

Raindrops will fall from the sky
Stealing the shape from your eye
Now we can all get some sleep
the water the water the water
saving us from the heat
Somethings will die in their place
Others will leave with a trace
Fire will come by its day
the water the water the water
Washing it all away


Rain on my frustration
Stake my queen now break this
Wash me down my station
Make more rain forsaken
Read between the sky and every piece of the earth
1 2 3 lets make this
Read between the sky and every piece of the earth
1 2 3 forsake this
Read between the sky and every piece of the earth
1 2 3 lets make this
Read between the sky and every piece of the earth
1 2 3 forsake this

    General Comment:I am pretty confident that this song is talking about Noahs Ark and that time era. I think it's kind of poking fun at maybe what the animals were doing that whole time on the ark.

    Look at some of the lyrics:

    "Ah ah ah the cry of isolation
    Ah ah ah the higher meditation
    Ah ah ah the sweet precipitation
    Ah ah ah the higher depravation "
    ...isolation, meditation, precipitation, and depravation.....all words that the ark relates too.

    again...

    "All aboard the ship cause
    Your going to need ARC when
    The WET comes down youll be swimming like a shark"


    "Raindrops will fall from the sky
    Stealing the shape from your eye
    Now we can all get some sleep
    the water the water the water
    saving us from the heat
    Somethings will die in there place
    Others will leave with a trace
    Fire will come by its day
    the water the water the water
    Washing it all away "

    ...saving you from the HEAT (hell)...washing washing it all away...like the flood did...


    i dunno it makes sense to me.

    General Comment:This is about a little place called the Animal Bar in Australia.

    For a certain part of the year they get NO RAIN and almost die.

    General Comment:makes sense, nicely done! i think it's a miracle to get a meaning in the first post, rather then 'love this song' or 'great song!' lol.

    could it be isolation not vacilation? and state my claim, not save my queen? i could look in the book but that would be sensible...

    General Comment:well i'm spanish , and the first time i heard this song i couldnt get the whole lyrics. so i thought that it could be about being young, and how wonderful and full of dreams life is. but the no rain meaning makes much more sense hehehe.... anyway, great song.

    are you shure it's "there place"? it's grammaticaly inncorect, so maybe it could be their place or this place... don't know, just checking...

    General Comment:This is... my favorite RCHP song.

    I think it's really straight forward myself. It's about a bar.. plain and simple. Not all songs have hidden meanings.
