Rain King

Lyrics

When I think of heaven (Deliver me in a black-winged bird)
I think of flying down into a sea of pens and feathers
and all other instruments of faith and sex and God
In the belly of a black-winged bird

i think its about a past lover who broke his heart or cheeted on him and hes saying that he deserves better than that.
maboyd, thanks so much for that, it might get me a little closer to understandin g the lyrics. Glad I'm not the only one who's puzzled. Such a great tune though. I first heard the slow version that is out on youtube and just melted. Anybody know if they released it that way and where I could get it?
It's a beautiful jammin' melody even if I never understand more than two words of it.

It partly is a reference to the novel Henderson The Rain King by Saul Bellow. Note the title and the line "Henderson is waiting for the sun" midway through. In the novel, the main character searches for life's meaning by visiting tribes in Africa, and despite his best intentions nothing goes quite the way he envisions - he unwittingly becomes the Rain King - the heir to one tribe's throne, and flees the responsibili t y . I couldn't beging to tell you what each line means, but based upon that I

it inspires me, lifts me up, and I can't make sense of what the words mean as a whole piece
My absolute favorite song . . . it's meaning is different depending on my mood. It can cheer me up or it can fit into a mellow mood. I like a song that is always there for me.
I really loved this song as a kid...
