Robert DeLong - Acid Rain Lyrics




Wanted it to
Feel the same way
As the first time
As the first time

But the feeling
Slipped away
To red green blue
And then I saw you

In the airport
It's the same thing
As the first time
As the first time

I watched the tiles
Slip away
Into the restroom
Then I saw you

Wanted you to
Glimpse the same things
That my eyes saw
That my mind saw

But the vision
Slipped away
Into nothing

[Chorus:]
Ran down my brain stem
And out my fingers
I felt the cold air
And touched your black hair
The rush of colors
Acid rain
The colors screened you
And then I saw through

The colors screened you
And then I saw through

The colors screened you
And then I saw through

Follow the signs
Through the desert
Through the desert
To the other side

One cycle later
I met my savior
In the arches
In the forest

Is it trees or twilight?
Can't ascertain
I was in the taproom
And then I saw you

Then I was running
Pushing air in my lungs
Feeling the light
Bounce off the moon from the sun
And slip into nothing
Into nothing

[Chorus x2]

Feel it slip away
Slip away, slip away
Slip away, slip away
[x8]

[Chorus x2]

Feel it slip away
Slip away, slip away
Slip away, slip away
[x4]
