about

Featuring backing vocals from many of our friends. We shot a music video for this one too - check it out on youtube.

For a long time this has been the closing song at our gigs - it's just big and fun.

lyrics

I went to a supermarket
To accessorize my life
I was nearly brought to tears by
What I saw in aisle 5
They checked my brain
I’m not insane
It’s just the way things are done
In suburbia

I went to the computer store
To make myself a modern man
I got tangled in USB chords
Fell over and broke my ram

Ask myself after some wine
Is this where I wanna die?
Boxed in like books on a shelf
Can’t be good for your health
So I turn to the sky and I pray
Lord make it rain

Then somebody hacked my facebook
They should have just cut off my hands
Then the hacker posed as me
And the fucker stole all my friends

I was meant to dance naked around a fire at night
Instead I’m standing lost and desperate
In the electronics section of K-Mart

But I smile and I wave
Act like it is ok
But I haven’t had sex
In like three hundred day
And I’m glued to my phone
‘Cause I can’t be alone
And now I can’t be calm
‘Cause I start at the tone
And my boss is a jerk
But I still go to work
‘Cause the rent is now due
And I am what I earn
And my path has been laid
Like a rat in a maze
So I pray make it rain
For at least forty days

‘Cause if this is the first world
Why do I feel hollow?

And so we dance to make it rain
And when it rains we dance all the same
And so we dance to make it rain
And when it rains
We dance to see the sunshine again
