He's In The Rain

This song was created for Game of Bands round 182 : "Lyrics First"

Lyrics:

Can you hear it?
The sound of despair swallowing him whole
The air that's leaving from his lungs so cold
The truth in him unravelling at the seams
At the seams

Do you see it?
He's decomposing right in front of you
He's trying not to sink in his monsoon
Tired of being haunted in his dreams
His dreams

He's in the rain
He set himself on fire but it wasn't
It couldn't ever be good enough
He's drowning without ever looking up
He's in the rain, in the rain, in the rain

He's in the rain
Won't even try to fight to stay afloat
His apathy surrounding him, surrounding him, like smoke
There's no one left that he can look toward
He's in the rain

Do you feel it?
The emptiness he's chosen to embrace
His loneliness keeps rearing its ugly face
Over thinking what it all might mean

Can you heal him?
He tried so much he's finally giving up
You're looking but he's keeping his eyes shut
There's not much left that can bring him relief
Relief

He's in the rain
He set himself on fire but it wasn't
It couldn't ever be good enough
He's drowning without ever looking up
He's in the rain, in the rain, in the rain

He's in the rain
Won't even try to fight to stay afloat
His apathy surrounding him, surrounding him, like smoke
There's no one left that he can look toward
He's in the rain

He wants to hurt himself
But he's too tired from
Saving him from himself
Since he's all burned out
He's done with sinking lower
Over the world’s weight on his shoulders
Started looking for some closure
To save from the pain
He's in the rain

He's in the rain
He set himself on fire but it wasn't
It couldn't ever be good enough
He's drowning without ever looking up
He's in the rain, in the rain, in the rain

He's in the rain
Won't even try to fight to stay afloat
His apathy surrounding him, surrounding him, like smoke
There's no one left that he can look toward
He's in the rain
[Exit]
