“Raingods Dancing”
Artist: Fish
Albums: Raingods with Zippos (1999)
Bouillabaisse (2005)

Empty churches, empty pews
In the subway nothing moves
And the static on the radio is drowning out the sound
Of Raingods dancing

Empty playgrounds, empty bars
I can't remember how it was before the flood
When all I had to do was simply recognise
The love that's trapped inside

I gave it all, I took it back
And in the end there's nothing left except a shell
Surrounding emptiness and loneliness
A core of pain
I see my pathway shining

Raingods with Zippos
A tinman hides a broken heart
Raingods with Zippos
He knows the flame has gone
That soon he'll fall apart
I'll fall apart

So I lay me down to lie
And the rain my lullaby I drift away to dreamless sleep
Leave behind a life that died
A victim of a plague of ghosts (of ghosts)

I was wrapped up in my guilt
Buried deep within my memories
A shelter of self-pity
That I know the rain will wash away
I sense the storm arriving

Raingods with Zippos (Zippos Zippos Zippos Zippos ...)
A tin man rusts away
And slowly falls apart
Raingods with Zippos (Zippos Zippos Zippos Zippos ...)
And all he leaves behind
A bleeding broken heart

Live 1999

Empty churches, empty pews
In the subway nothing moves
And the static on the radio is drowning out the sound
Of raingods dancing

Empty playgrounds, empty bars
I can't remember how it was before the flood
When all I had to do was simply recognise
The love that's trapped inside

I gave it all, I took it back
And in the end there's nothing left except a shell
Surrounding emptiness and loneliness
A core of pain
I see my pathway shining

Raingods with Zippos (Zippos)
A tinman hides a broken heart
Raingods with Zippos (Zippos)
He knows the flame has gone
That soon he'll fall apart
And so I fall apart

So I lay me down to lie
And the rain my lullaby I drift away to dreamless sleep
Leave behind a life that died
A victim of a plague of ghosts

I was wrapped up in the guilt
Buried deep within my memories
A shelter of self-pity
That I know the rain will wash away
I sense the storm arriving

Raingods with Zippos
A tin man rusts away
And slowly falls apart
Raingods with Zippos (Zippos Zippos Zippos Zippos ...)
And all he leaves behind
A bleeding broken heart (heart heart ...)

We all fall apart (apart apart apart ...)
