Townsend, Devin - Rain City Lyrics




Oh, do you know who we are inside?
And oh, can you know what's right beside?
You don't wanna know if the tide is high or low

If you don't wanna lend a hand then try to stay at home
Millions more will come and go yet we are still alone

Alone

I know

I have the right to fight for flight
But oh, do we vilify what's right beside

If you don't wanna lend a hand then try to stay at home
Human beings may take your heart and hang on to your soul
...your soul

Please don't forget that you are beautiful

Ah, do you know who we are inside?
And oh, so they criticize...but we tried, we tried

If you don't wanna lend a hand then try to stay at home
Millions more will close the door it chills us to the bone
Others still will take your hand and consciously atone
Subtlety reminds you that you never were alone

You must fight for your soul!

Your soul (you've got to want it for me...)
...

Gone now in a field of green, gone where feelings go

    Oh...
    Do we know...
    Who we are...
    Inside?
    And, Oh...
    Can we know...
    What's right...
    Beside?
    You don't wanna know...
    If the tide...
    Is high...
    Or low...
    If you don't wanna lend a hand then try to stay at home...
    Millions more will come and go yet we are still alone...
    Alone....
    I know...
    I...
    Have the right...
    To fight...
    For flight...
    But, Oh...
    Do we vilify...
    What's right...
    Beside?
    If you don't wanna lend a hand then try to stay at home...
    Human beings may take your heart and hang on to your soul...
    Your soul...
    Please don't forget you are beautiful...
    Ah...
    Do you know...
    Who we are...
    Inside?
    And, Oh...
    So they criticize...
    We tried...
    We tried...
    If you don't wanna lend a hand then try to stay at home...
    Millions more will close the door it chills us to the bone...
    Others still will take your hand and consciously atone...
    Subtlety reminds you that you never were alone...
    You must fight for your soul!
    Your soul...
    (You've got to want it for me...)

    Oh, do you know who we are inside?
    And oh, can you know what's right beside?
    You don't wanna know if the tide is high or low.

    If you don't wanna lend a hand then try to stay at home
    Millions more will come and go yet we are still alone

    Alone.

    I know:

    I have the right to fight for flight
    But oh, do we vilify what's right beside.

    If you don't wanna lend a hand then try to stay at home
    Human beings may take your heart and hang on to your soul

    ...your soul

    Please don't forget that you are beautiful

    Ah, do you know who we are inside?
    And oh, so they criticize...but we tried, we tried.

    If you don't wanna lend a hand then try to stay at home
    Millions more will close the door it chills us to the bone

    You must fight for your soul!

    Your soul (you've got to want it for me...)

  11. AssChavez

  12. Adam Hark

    this song is getting me through heatbreak right now. i was lead on for days and today she told me she just wants to be freinds. i havent been with any one in two years. i cant beleive this right now. whats worse is i can beleive it. fuck love dude.

  13. Joshua White

    beautiful song <3

  14. Fred and Patty Chandler

    Love the broad spectrum of musicianship. On this double disc. The Z2 side, has giant riffage, and I'm impressed with the voice overs, I don't know if that is him personally doing the dialogue , but it's a neat concept. They are very well done. Project Sky Blue, is some of the wildest music ever, great diversity, sweet dreams and jar you awake heavy, all on one disc. I've been fortunate enough to have been listening to Devin Townsend, since Synchestra, I have never been let down yet. So much soul and deep talent. I don't know how you do it Devin. Just the cost alone, putting out the amount of prolific bodies of work. But man it sure is appreciated on my end. As long as the money doesn't run out, it seems your imagination is up to the task, of being Devin Townsend.

  15. Saturn Ascension

    Band is underrated.

    Cheshiretroid

    Not underrated, just not well known.

    q0w1e2r3t4y5

    yeah. people should think about what underrated means: rated to a lower level than it deserves. and Devin was never underrated.

    HeavensArcher

    If you consider the amount of publicity he's getting, it's not enough to make a decent living on it. Not to mention that sometimes whenever they want to do a gig at a very famous concert hall, they would have to spend a large sum of their savings just to get in. Their most popular song on Youtube to date is Stormbending which has above 1m views, which is not enough still. If you check all the other songs that his music company released to the public their about half a million which isnt enough publicity.

  16. Paul merritt

    I am obsessed with this song! I hope Devin and the gang know how good this album really is they have outdone themselves. Bravo!

  17. Return to Life

    Best song on Sky Blue for me. A great reference to Bastard near the end as well.

    @ownlife It goes more like "Gone where feelings go" when I listen to it. (6:00)
