I've tried believin'
Even tried cheatin' myself of almost everything
Just to fashion reason
Out of what must have been nothin' at all

Now I can see when exactly I saw through the darkness
And into the light fantastic as it was
It was cool and bright like on a steely night
Of shadows still far from home

When I came round
I saw myself on a merry go round
With my heart on the ground
And there I see the rains coming down
To wash away the dream we found
Lyin' there for all to see in the dust of memories

When the rain came down
To wash away the dream we found
Now there's nothing left for me
But you can set me free

I won't deceive you neither believe you
When you say we gotta carry on
'Cos I know the dream is over
The one we shared so long, too long

When we could have been getting on just being friends
And not holding on to the past, which is just sand
I guess, we try to get strong if we have to belong
'Cos we get it done, but I was on the ground

Most of the time on a merry go round
Looking up but going down
And there I see the rains comin' down
To wash away the dream we found
Lyin' there for all to see in the dust of memories

When the rain came down
To wash away the dream we found
Now there's nothing left for me
Can you see?
See the rain beat down, rain come down

What can we do with a thing like you
A heart with a hard on for ignorance, a child of fools
Where nothing rings true, in a myth that's cruel
Where I see the cross, you see the nail
Where you see the mystery, I see the failure
And it's bringing me down

I'm just a clown on a merry go round, going down
I see the rains falling down on the ground, down

And there's a dream we found
[Incomprehensible] on the ground
There for all to see
Now this memories where the rain beats down
To wash away the dream we found
A spider fingered vice, all sugar and spice

Runnin' down my face, feelin' like black rain
Clawin' under my skin and running through my veins
Like a poison I must suck, just to change my luck
When the rain came down
To wash away the dream we found

The rain beat down
Down, down
Rain beat down, down, down
Down, yeah, yeah, yeah
Rain beat down, yeah, yeah, yeah
Rain beat down
Dream come down
