Written in 1999 in Constance. Don't remember exactly what inspired me but part of it must have been my literature studies. Took me 15 years to find out what the song essentially is about and to add the word "lies" at the end (instead of "soul" in the original version).


The sleepers leave their chambers, the drinkers their beds
The beggars their ditches, the dead their graves
The sky begins to tumble, our sight to fade
Who's gonna relieve us from this weight?

The noose of the irrational, the vertigo of heat
The chaos of the traffic, the steam refineries
The pearling down of sweat, the bells begin to peal
The factories and the steel machineries

Someone here to let it rain?
Someone here to ease the pain?
Someone here who starts the circle again?

Someone here who dares to fail?
And if you won’t do it who will?
Is there someone here to let it rain again?

The radio is blasting, the sun burns out the creek
The children are laughing and dancing in the streets
Just like a kind of prophecy what nature’s gonna breed
How long without the harvest will we bleed?

Just someone who is able to contact all the gods
Combining his emotions with his thoughts
The old man in the corner or the mother with the dog
Someone here who knows nature’s laws

Someone here to let it rain?
Someone here to ease the pain?
Someone here who starts the circle again?

Someone here who dares to fail?
And if you won’t do it who will?
Is there someone here to let it rain again?

And every year we wait in fear
for a miracle falling from the sky
And each new season we ask for reasons
as to why the hollows ran dry

Like a wheel we spin the inherited sin,
who is to blame on our side?
And what was done wrong is forgotten and gone,
so how can we be re-fertilized?

The sky’s getting calmer, no turbulence anymore
For someone had the courage to take over the role
of tearing down the masks and the lies of the folk
To sacrifice his safety for a rainfall

Let it rain
Let it rain
