"Sao Paulo Rain" as written by and Mcrae....
There's always a party on Funeral Row, where the cross flashes red to the street/And gasoline dreams of girls in blue jeans, he's grazing the surface of sleep/The vultures on Main Street are eyeing you up, calculating the weight of your bones/And midnight graffiti appears on your door, so we all can sleep safe in our homes/And the storms in the distance hold no rain, and I feel my resistance giving way/ Shelter me from this sky, dance with me one last time… Sao Paulo rain… Sao Paulo rain/Do not disturb this blood red earth, there's giants sleeping beneath/and carnival queens on their deathbed scenes all go through the motions of grief/Take another hit, let the bottle slip through your fingers and break like a promise made/The day I remember, my heart I will keep, my voice I surrender and I will not speak to lie/We were so alive, we were so alive/Shelter me from this sky, dance with me one last time… Sao Paulo rain… Sao Paulo rain.

    General CommentThis is about an imaginary plague which will sweep through the earth. The midnight graffiti refers to the red cross which was painted on doors during the biblical equivalent.
