hell for leather, lathered, drunk
you're soused, you're pissed, you're sunk
the jukebox now is drunk
just along the way
i had a call last saturday
to say i'd thrown my friends away
reversed the charges
on them all
i made a lot of calls

is there a storm coming
or are we just another shower
is there a storm warning
has someone just cut the power
is there a storm coming
or are we just another shower
is this a storm coming
coming
coming
coming

i would have kept you free from harm
rang the bells or raised alarms
i would have kept them
all at bay
except i thought i heard you say
you're the leper boy
you can't come in
the monkey god is now your king
you're out, you're in
you're out, you're in
you're out, you're in
you're out

is there a storm coming
or are we just another shower
is there a storm warning
has someone just cut the power
is there a storm coming
or are we just another shower
is this a storm coming
coming
coming
coming

repeat first verse and chorus to end

    General CommentYeah the minority could be the kind of social/musical group you belong to

    (Like, say, emo. The kids think they're oh-so-different, and that they're going to change the world but really it's just a phase and in about 2 years there'll be a new one)

    General CommentI always interpreted "Is there a storm comin', or are we just another shower?" as a reference to revolution. Is this generation going to change something in a storm, or will it just be another ineffectual shower. "I would have kept you free from harm, rang the bells or raised alarms, I would have kept them all at bay, except I thought I heard you say, you're the leper boy, you can't come in" seems to mean there always people trying to change things, but they're always rejected.

    General Commentwell, I guess the guy here has been thrown out of home, cos he's done something bad.

    "is there a storm coming
    or are we just another shower"

    not sure about the chorus, but I think it represents some kind of minority. for example, "are we the only ones or are there more?"

    great song, anyway.
