    Couldn’t See The Rain

    the window rolls down
    on a big black van
    he snatches the money
    from a trembling hand
    “that’s all I got,
    I’ll have it next time”
    must not of been enough
    the slinger emptied his nine

    (chorus)
    the clouds opened up
    and the rain came down
    the water and the blood
    ran across the ground
    a mother bears the pain
    of her worst fear
    but you couldn’t see the rain for her tears
    no you couldn’t see the rain for her tears

    a sergeant walks up
    takes a last look ‘round
    determines they flushed ‘em
    “boys you’ve made me proud,
    let’s head on back
    be careful on the road ”,
    did that young boy even hear
    that roadside explode

    the clouds opened up
    and the rain came down
    the water and the blood
    ran across the ground
    a mother bears the pain
    of her worst fear
    but you couldn’t see the rain for her tears
    no you couldn’t see the rain for her tears

    the people lined up
    on a road to a hill,
    they spat and mocked him,
    in prayer, some stood still
    “Father forgive them
    they know not what they do”,
    dice rolled for a blood stained robe,
    guess winners sometimes lose

    bridge

    two thousand years
    you’d think we’d learn
    but devils never run
    out of souls to burn

    the clouds opened up
    and the rain came down
    the water and the blood
    ran across the ground
    a mother bears the pain
    of her worst fear
    but you couldn’t see the rain for her tears
    no you couldn’t see the rain for her tears

    Ah, thanks. Supposed to end that line with "hear"... I'll fix it
