battered rain

i sit on the steps just awaiting you to arrive
i'm in thought of your pleasure to cleanse the earth
and wash all the hell away it's gloomy it's damp
the thunder began to roam over my soul it's nature 

i'm loved however i see your greed as your wind blows
on homes knocking the dove right out of the tree
it's heaven it's god you chased the sun away

flashes of lightening covers the sky 
you showered across town now you're back
waiting on me to hang out the fresh laundry
or perhaps go get a new hair do 

well i won't i'll just sit here until you're done
with all this mass construction you call nature
oh yes i'll pick up the furniture and glass
and search for the dog after you pass 

you are gonna pass are't you or will you
come inside this time like you did the kings 
across the street ripping off their roof 
just to take a peek i'll get an umbrella
