Sunny Rain, Window by Sheldon Alexander
Tap, tap, tap, tap, tap The clear glass windows the world Flat Earth eerie cool Leveled unlike my mind Frozen as my thoughts Stiffening to the dense waters Who knew they were acidic? Melting away at my defenses The last soldier in the trenches Fighting for what I never believed in Running into the fray, ready to take my own life Dreams of an angry martyr Blood soaked manifesto written in spite cuz I couldn't get my shit together Or get with the program Tap, tap Tap, tap, tap
The rain, it creeps across my shoulder Through invisible walls Each drop a sweet time, only to be infected by a murky droplet Tell me to you remember How sweet it use to be Trying to keep the balance but it seems I cant stand the rain Against my window Bringing back sweet memories I can't stand the rain it's soaks my mind in times I was high Cloud 9, spiritually divine, physically inclined to lift and pull together through any whether Thinking back I was zombified craving dead presidents full time mortician I had the sickest sense And yet I belive other Americans are more of a necrophiliac Governments the necromancer listening to the King corporation - spread the bile across the continents this acid rain is wearing me down I speak only in the sound of silence Where taking a knee is deemed a riot Heads in boxes so they can't see the bees disappear Why are my windows so clear? Tap, tap, Tap, tap, tap I can't stand the rain Against my window Bringing back sweet memories When we were together If I close my eyes I can visualize your smile Toy soldier for love I could only mirror the game just to learn the rules I've lost future wives by the dime More change of hands than my grandfather's ties Pursed lips at strangers who became friends Only to relapse Lovers, friends, and family are all the same People who change whether you like it or not The only difference is the year and bond Since time heals, and forgiveness isn't a threat Then we can all intertwine Media doesn't help me to believe unfortunately Tap, tap Tap, tap, tap Like a finger to the head Pointing at my insecurity Pointing at my insecurity Pointing at my insecurity Frozen as my thoughts Leveled unlike my mind Flat Earth eerie cool The clear glass windows the world Tap, tap, tap Everyone is out on this sunny day except me Stiffening to the dense waters of this rain cloud It's one sound I just can't stand I can't stand the rain Against my window Bringing back sweet memories rain cloud.
