The sky is a screen and we’re watching it stream for the night
You point with your left while I’m holding my breath with my right
The night is young and we’re naive, nestled on the safer side of evening
Scared to commit, so we sit here still staring at the ceiling

And we rain, rain, rain… and you’ll rain for the night
Will I follow you, will I ever be the one

Here on the Earth I’m the best and the worst of a cautious mind
As far out of reach they're all stuck in 2D cuz we’re too far behind
Hermes is the renegade, chiaroscural, in a state of mourning
As a sun pushes through, and it lights up a truth that is dawning

And you’ll rain, rain, rain… and you rain for the night
Will I follow you, will I ever be the one
And we stream, stream, stream, and I scream at the stars
Till they answer me, will I ever be the one

I've got nothing to lose
I've got oceans to swim
I could stream for the night
As it's drawing me in
