    Lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    We came from the four corners, we are the raw waters
    The course the four horsemen would drink from, the water that pours
    We carry the river, the reservoir, the residue
    Rising waves, she sprayed the inevitable
    Churn across many voices in our vape
    As we surge and gush, we were steam and a distant heat
    We move rapid over landscape, gatherin' speed
    There's a land, city, forest, and beach
    Headin' for the people that sleep, ready to bleed
    Unleash the torrents, come clean
    Carry many lessons that the water teach
    But you better learn to swim or you'll get caught beneath

    [Hook]
    Hard rain falling on all the halfhearted
    Half formed, fast walking, half fury, half boredom
    Hard talking, half dead from exhaustion
    Half pushed but the puddles keep forming, don't fall in
    [Verse 2]
    Some saw us in their tea leaves, some felt us in their knees
    Most left it to the weathermen to tell them there was nothing to see
    You can play dumb and ignore for so long
    But we've been in the mountains gettin' strong
    We've seen you filling up the sky with your fumes
    Sitting in your rooms like you're all that ever lived
    Heads down to the lives of the others in your towns
    Running from the rains like you've never been kissed, look
    Leave your possessions and fun so your friends
    That you've gone to make peace with the things you've never done
    Come dance in the deluge, spill like the flood
    The weathervane swings, things will never change
    Single the moneymen who close their eyes and pretend
    That this rumble must be low planes, so strange

    [Hook]
    Hard rain falling on all the halfhearted
    Half formed, fast walking, half fury, half boredom
    Hard talking, half dead from exhaustion
    Half pushed but the puddles keep forming, don't fall in

    [Verse 3]
    And they will run to the highest hill, consult their old books
    Ask the dead mystics for wisdom they don't trust
    The people will flock to the garages
    Stockpile cannisters of gasoline, tinned, fish, and bandages
    Count the seconds between the thunder and the lightning
    Scared of every other body runnin' 'round frightened
    "We can't carry on like this," you will mutter
    Staring with disgust at the people weepin' in the gutter
    "Yeah, we made no trouble, we played by the rules
    I worked double shift to get my kids from school!"
    But you were so focused on your own little part
    You went plowin' on blind in the dark, no heart
    Now we're not the dreaded storm that will end things
    We're just your playful, gale force friend in these end times
    Come to remind you you're not an island
    Life is much broader than borders
    But who can afford to think over the walls of this fortress?
    Of course, it's important to provide roof and floorboards
    For you and yours and be secure in your fortunes
    But you're more than the three or four you go to war for
    You're part of a people that need your support
    And, who's world is it if it belongs to these corporates?
    The people are left on the doorstep, door shut
    Nauseous and tortured by all that they've lost

    [Hook]
    Hard rain falling on all the halfhearted
    Half formed, fast walking, half fury, half boredom
    Hard talking, half dead from exhaustion
    Half pushed but the puddles keep forming, don't fall in
