lyrics

i like to draw straight lines by eye
an air-o-plane in the morning sky
noisy voices, a bouncing basket ball
kids in the yard outside

i think and think and think of time
how many days and how many years
another coffee, another beer
"and something to live for.."

i like to play piano sometimes
letters and numbers and words and signs
but what is the cost of ascending lines
broken fingers, "my watch is broken"

satellites in the sky go by
sending news to the distant world
love in the right hand, hate in the left hand
guns in church, "but his bible stopped the bullet"

blue rain
red rain
white rain
coming down

i like to draw straight lines by eye
an air-o-plane in the morning sky
noisy voices, a bouncing basket ball
kids in the yard outside

blue rain
red rain
white rain
coming down

blue rain
red rain
white rain
coming down
