"Did You Hear the Rain?" as written by and Matthew Allchin George Barnett....
Oh, why do you treat me so
Oh, why do you treat me so

You cause me to weep
And you cause me to moan
You cause me to pack up
My bags and leave home

Oh, why do you treat me so


Oh did you hear the thunder?
Or the rain?
Means I’m coming home again
Means I’m coming home my friend

Oh did you steal my name?
Oh, you Jack of all trades
You’re the master of none
Oh, the race has begun
I was born a champion
I was born to jump and run

Oh did you hear the rain?
Oh, the rain?
You can try and run and hide
Tearing at the chain
Oh, Lucifer’s inside

Oh did your siblings tell you
I was wasting up your time
Oh, now you’re wasting mine
You put me back in line
And I’m counting every link
And I guess you think that’s fine

Oh did you hear the rain?
Oh, the rain?
You can try and run and hide
Tearing at the chain
Oh, Lucifer’s inside

Oh, did I send a shiver
Down your spine?
Well I do it all the time
It’s a little trick of mine
Did I make you shake your knees
Did I make him spill his wine
Lord, I’m spreading like disease
Know I’m all up in your mind
Oh, Lucifer’s inside
Oh, Lucifer’s inside

Oh did you hear the rain?
Oh, the rain?
You can try and run and hide
Tearing at the chain
Means I’m coming home again
Means I’m coming home my friend
Oh, Lucifer’s inside
Oh, Lucifer’s inside
Lucifer’s inside.

    My InterpretationI see this song as being sung from the viewpoint of Satan/Lucifer regarding his banishment from Heaven. (Keep in mind, I'm not religious)

    "Oh, why do you treat me so
    Oh, why do you treat me so

    You cause me to weep
    And you cause me to moan
    You cause me to pack up
    My bags and leave home"

    Being banished, of course.

    "Oh did you hear the thunder?
    Or the rain?
    Means I’m coming home again
    Means I’m coming home my friend"

    A storm is happening by Lucifer's hand, and he's calling out to God to say he is going to take his throne, as he spoke of before, causing his banishment.

    "Oh did you steal my name?
    Oh, you Jack of all trades
    You’re the master of none
    Oh, the race has begun
    I was born a champion
    I was born to jump and run"

    Stealing his name, referring to God telling his followers that Lucifer is evil and hellbent on destruction, which Lucifer feels is unjust at first.

    The race has begun for who will rule and lead mankind. Born a champion etc refers to God creating him as a perfect being.

    "Oh did you hear the rain?
    Oh, the rain?
    You can try and run and hide
    Tearing at the chain
    Oh, Lucifer’s inside"

    Referring to his storm breaking into the minds of man, and tempting mankind to go against God.


    "Oh did your siblings tell you
    I was wasting up your time
    Oh, now you’re wasting mine
    You put me back in line
    And I’m counting every link
    And I guess you think that’s fine"

    I need to do a bit more research, but what I see this as, is God and the other angels conspiring against him to rid Heaven of him, and he remembers everything they did.

    "Oh, did I send a shiver
    Down your spine?
    Well I do it all the time
    It’s a little trick of mine
    Did I make you shake your knees
    Did I make him spill his wine
    Lord, I’m spreading like disease
    Know I’m all up in your mind
    Oh, Lucifer’s inside
    Oh, Lucifer’s inside"

    Again, referring to himself beginning to tempt mankind towards his own ways. "Spill his wine" specifically as wine is a common symbol in Abrahamic religions - making God and his followers taken by surprise at his uprising. Possibly also regarding his rebellion with the other angels.

    With the "shiver down your spine, it's a trick of mine" part could also be applied to humanity. His sinister and unnerving presence.

    Just my thoughts. Feel free to correct any of my knowledge on the story.
