Amongst the goods and high explosives
Men, women and children make their way
Across the woods where the troll lives
Who never sees the light of day
I'm making my home, my little passion pit
In the middle of other people's brains
Nickel chrome and iron I hit
By heat and light and heavy rains

There's nothing like the sun
There's nothing like the sun
Through the window coming in
There's nothing like the sun
There's nothing like the sun
And the sunlight on your skin

We drove past the jailhouse
Past the judgment, past the crime
Along the cove, along the giant's eyebrows
Well, I wasn't in service at that time
I ran on the high wire
Stayed focused on the pain
From the frying pan and into the fire
And into rehab and back again

There's nothing like the sun
There's nothing like the sun
Trough the window coming in
There's nothing like the sun
There's nothing like the sun
And the sunlight on your skin

I'll quit
And make a way
I'll do that on a rainy day
I'll quit
I'll make way
But only on a rainy day

    General CommentThis song came into my head after a few years since hearing it for the fragment "save it for a rainy day."

    The goods and high explosives might be some warzone where opium is produced, like Afghanistan. But that's highly speculative on my part.

    The giant's eyebrows reference is cryptic to me. If anyone has an idea on what that signifies, I'd like to know.

    The part at the end seems to be talking about drug addiction and postponing quitting or kicking the happy. As the Spanish saying goes "manana"..."tomorrow" (I will quit).
