I don't feel a thing
and I stopped remembering
The days are just like moments turned to hours

Mother Used to say
if you want, you'll find a way
Bet mother never danced through fire shower

Walk in the rain, in the rain, in the rain
I walk in the rain, in the rain
Is it right or is it wrong
and is it here that I belong

I don't hear a sound
Silent faces in the ground
The quiet screams, but I refuse to listen

If there is a hell
I'm sure this is how it smells
Wish this were a dream, but no, it isn't

Walk in the rain, in the rain, in the rain
I walk in the rain, in the rain
Am I right or am I wrong
and is it here that I belong

Walk in the rain, in the rain, in the rain
I walk in the rain, in the rain
Why do I feel so alone
For some reason I think of home

    General Commentwhoops. that was just my opinion of the song. as for analyzation. one of the general misconceptions on this song is the interpreted meaning of "but mother never danced through fire shower" (and btw, it says bet above). most people think this is just spitefulness towards a mother who does not know what she is talking about. It is actually referring to a gunfight, where fire shower is the rain of bullets that one is dancing in. This whole song can easily be interpreted as a gunfight. "if there is a hell, im sure this is how it smells." This can be veiwed as the smell of gunpowder and the smoke from "smokeless" gunpowder, which has a sulfurous scent. Hell is also said to have burning pits of sulfur (eh, eh, see the connection?). The rest of the lyrics can be applied to the hysteria one feels once they have been shot or are soon to be shot and are fearing death

    thats just one interpretation tho.

    General Commenti always thought it was choir sings(or it could be screams), not quiet... as that the faces in the ground are obviously the dead..

    anyways great song.. just figured it out on piano, its got the most complex chord in a song that i can play..

    My OpinionI believe the faces in the ground are likely reflections in puddles. Hence, walking in the rain.
