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 and sex and God
In the belly of a black-winged bird
Don't try to feed me
'cause I've been here before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been crying , and I've been thinking
And I am the Rain King

Well I said
Mama, mama, , why am I so alone?
I can't go outside
‘Cause 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'
Please invite me in
Don't try to bleed me
‘Cause I've been there before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been lying
I just keep sinking
And I am the Rain King

Hey, I only want the same as anyone
Mr Henderson just keeps waiting for the sun
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends
And ends and begins and ends
After all the dreaming I just wanna come back home again...

I Said well every little bit of sister says you’re going sinking
Down well under ground
And every little thing she does to me
Is beautiful
And I said every little bit of fun and loneliness
Well, every little thing that endlessly confuses me
But I said when I think of heaven
Mmm said when I think of heaven
Mmmm When I think of heaven
I think of you
Do you think of heaven
And I said when I think of heaven
Deliver me in a black winged bird
Oh, come on

I think of dying
Lay me down in a field of flame and heather
Surrender 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 the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been dying
And I've been drinking and I am the Rain King.
well I said that I am the rain king...

Oh I said, goodnight Elisabeth
I’m so sorry now
But I am the rain king

So why don’t you come in out of the rain?
