Solid state of decay
Way I feel today
Lord knows it's hot
And reality may rot

There's nothin' left but the booze
Which caused the birth of the blues
And nothin' left to choose
Except primeval ooze

And I wish it would rain
You know I wish it would

Cancer causin' waste
Is pourin' down from space
The beaches are shut down
So I'm gonna stay in town

Gonna take some time
To look for some things
Things that I wished for
That ain't around no more

And I wish it would rain
You know I wish it would

They sold his treasure
For their moment of pleasure
Then his friend had that accident
And she was also heaven-sent

Gonna take some time
to look for some things
Down at the desert shore
Ain't goin' noplace else

And I wish it would rain
You know I wish it would
