Dissolve In The Rain


Sat on a bee when I sat on the swing
Gave me a big sting right on my little ding-a-ling
Oh man I screamed and I cried
Mama said “you’ll live” but the bee died
I’m sure that he would rather be alive
But he lived for this moment, defending the hive

That bee has got to get back into the earth
‘fore he can see what he’s really truly worth
Look around you boy, you’re surrounded by the universe

Mom was a hippie

My buddy Dale went fishing alone
His wife called me at midnight when he didn’t come home
He is presumed to have drowned
No earthly trace of Dale was ever found
At his service everybody was glum
Talking ‘bout the great things he never actually done

All the dreams he ever hoped to see
All the beings he ever hoped to be
Dissolved in the rain as it carried him home to the sea

And that’s poetic enough for me

I want to live four thousand years
Don’t want no flowers growing out of my ears
But we all know that we all go
Some people think it’s a great big show
But I don’t believe in paradise or purgatory
I believe in something, that’s good enough for me

Dry your tears ‘cause there ain’t no need to cry
There’s no sorrow once you teach your mind to fly
There’s no tomorrow, you won’t even care when you die

What we need is to get back into the earth
So we can see what we’re really truly worth
I’ll stand naked surrounded by the Universe

All the dreams that I ever hoped to see
All the beings I ever hoped to be
Dissolve in the rain as it carries me home to the sea

Dissolve in the rain as it carries me home to the sea

So dry your tears ’cause there ain’t no reason to cry
There’s no sorrow once you teach your mind that it can fly
There’s no tomorrow and you won’t even care when you die
