The river was a rainbow stew, the fishes choked and cursed
The thirsty dogs spat fire, rolled in glue - then they burst
The furballs flying, trees were dying
Dandelions were crippled, bald
We saw it all in color, now we're waiting for the cloud

A mother force-fed baby milk, which ticked and bubbled black
She sank it back with plastic pills, although it stank
Seemed thankful
Rolled up in her sack, she won't be back
She won't grow old
We saw it all in color, now we're waiting for the cloud

And crocodiles were sprouting wings, dead sheep filled the fields
The children rode on locusts, and drew slings at anything that could be killed and eaten raw
No weeping sores, no claws
No balls
We saw it all in color, yes we saw it all color
Now we're waiting for the cloud

We saw it all in color, yes we saw it all color
Now we're waiting for the cloud

Waiting for the cloud

We're told it could be 15 days, we're busy digging holes
The deep ones for the pure, selected
Shallow ones for old and sick
The derelicts, the poor
The junkies, criminals, the whores
There's more...
There's red and yellow, black and blue
There's me, there's you

There's me, there's you

Waiting
Waiting for the cloud
