"Right As Rain" as written by Thomas Andrew Barman, Rudy Carlo S. Trouve and Stefan Martha C. Carlens....
I'm the same by name
I had a friend called 'generous bilby'
He was the same by name
His only advice was that he died
While I did a little dance
Dust to dust the preacher sighted
I did a little cry

On adjourn by name
Last there and long
It's not fair to blame me, for not believing what I saw
His only advice was that I danced in the shiny white shirt
He should have known
I'd be the last, to be there first

Right as rain
Tombstone and the damage done
How beautiful the naked skin
How beautiful it glows
This is where the bleeding stops
And this is what it shows
It has turned into a scar, the same
Just the same, the same

But anyway
This is where the sane will park
His foot upon your toes

I'm a man my name
Had a friend called 'deadly bilby'
But he slipped away

And he said:
"poor me out some whiskey man,
There's something you should know.
The person that you take me for,
Was buried long ago"

Right as rain
Tombstone and the damage done
How beautiful the poetry
How beautiful the prose
This is where the story ends
And this is where it goes
It just turned into an alibi

But anyway
This is where the sane will park
His foot upon your toes

    General Commentthis one is beautiful. i think it's about losing a friend, but that's not all. maybe it is an imaginary friend ('i'm the same by name') and ('this is where the sane will park his foot upon your toes')
    and what about this alibi thing?

    General Commentyes, I remember reading in an interview with Tom that it was about his father's death. Which confirms the interpretation given here : hotellounge.com/songs/… read it yourself for more details as I won't steal from Jyves' great website ;)
