Steps out side, into the scorching heat
The well is dry, the children cry
And the lands they claim defeat

Oh my father, is it evil that we?ve done
He smiles at the child with faith in his eyes
Inshallah the rains will come

This I know, his mercy must be won
Just open your heart, this is the start
Inshallah the rains will come

On him I swear, his will must be done
Like tears from your eyes, pearls from the sky
Inshallah the rains will come

Father gathers, the people for their eyes to see
That if they combine their hearts and their minds
They will turn the deserts green

Side by side, they stand in the burning heat
They pray to the one that brought them the sun
To make the heavens weep

This I know, his mercy must be won
Just open your heart, this is the start
Inshallah the rains will come

On him I swear, his will must be done
Like tears from your eyes, pearls from the sky
Inshallah the rains will come

Like tears from your eyes, pearls from the sky
Inshallah the rains will come

Will come?. Shower your mercy and wash away the sun
Will come?. Pour down your blessings until the drought is gone
Will come?. Soak up our tears and let the rivers run
Will come?. Please answer your servants, Allah almighty one

This I know, his mercy must be won
Just open your heart, this is the start
Thank God that the rains have come

On him I swear, his will has been done
He dried the tears from our eyes, pearls from sky
Thank God that the rains have come
He dried the tears from our eyes, pearls from the skys
Thank God that the rains have come

So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.
