Billy said this town is dying,
It's dying just to be like me.
He was fighting everything in sight,
Died when he was 23.
I used to meet him down at his cafe,
He had one eye on the door
And the other on the writing on the wall.
He'd get restless and angry and we'd all laugh
'cause we weren't really scared,
We was his friends, he wouldn't hurt us at all
And all he'd say was rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain,
Rain, rain, rain,
Rain, rain, rain.
We gotta leave this town.
