When I think of heaven, deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of flying down into a sea of pens and feathers
And all other instruments of faith, sex and God
In the belly of a black winged bird

Don't try to bleed me 'cause I've been here before and I deserve a little more
I belong in the service of a queen, I belong anywhere but in between
She's been lying, I've been thinking and I am the Rain King

I said, Mama, mama, mama, why am I so alone?
Well I can't go outside, I'm scared I might not make it home
I'm alive, I'm alive, but I'm sinking in
If there's anyone at home at your place, darlin', why don't you invite me in?

Don't try to bleed me 'cause I've been here before and I deserve a little more
I belong in the service of a queen, I belong anywhere but in between
She's been lying, I've been thinking and I I am the Rain King

Hey, I only want the same as anyone
Henderson is waiting for the sun
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends
After all the dreaming I come home again

When I think of heaven, deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of dying, lay me down in a field of flame and heather
Render up my body into the burning heart of God
In the belly of a black-winged bird

Don't try to bleed me 'cause I've been here before and I deserve a little more
I belong in the service of a queen, I belong anywhere but in between
She's been lying, and I've been thinking and I am the Rain King

I said that I am the Rain king
I said, I, I, I, I, I, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Well I, I am the Rain King
