lyrics

Downpour

Today’s architects found aesthetics
In a deluge that births a glistening earth
Cascading rain rinses our rooftops
Provides the rhythm to our drown out rhyme
And magnifies memory’s defective lens
Makes us long for distant times

‘Cause we’ve all been swept away
In our sleep, from cherished shores
Across the great sea of time
Calling on exotic currents
To leave us ever-longing for
Things buried beneath Its blackest depths

Every house harbors a soul
Refracting the past with a prismatic mind
While the skies weep of deliverance
Grant us entry to where our dreams reside
It rains nowhere
It rains nowhere the way it rains here
And now that the storm has receded to a whisper in the willows
Let’s go outside and watch the world unfold

We’ll watch the world unfold
In all its dazzling glory
And drink until the flood abounds
(Like a blessed sea upon a thirsting shore)
