"Roof With a Hole" as written by and Curtis Mathew Kirkwood....
The colors are flowing from the wall to the floor
And only an outline still remains
Cause the roof's got a hole in it
And everything's been ruined by the rain

There may be diamons in that dream on the hill
But the people who live there still complain
Cause the roof's got a hole in it
And everything is soaking in the rain

No one can practice the common sense that they see
Through the nickle and diming I'll explain
When the roof's got a hole in it
Everything gets ruined by the rain
My head's got a hole in it
And everything's been ruined by the rain

    General CommentAt first like sid, and ER, I thought acid, but as I looked deeper into the song tj's explanation fits well. Acid only explains a small bit of the song. I now think the rain in the song is washing away the paint in the house onto the floor. Great song, meat puppets are great.
