i walked through the city
through the sweltering heat
and i saw the smoke from the prairie fires,
so far away
but then all the smoke
turned into rain
and i saw

damp air and moist grass
lightning, rain, and the boom of thunder
the slick sidewalk tries to make me slip
but my shoes grab on;
i’m standing tall

the devil tried to make a deal with me
to cast my soul into the rain
telling me that i would be free
from my eternal chains

i didn’t say a word and i waited
until he disappeared

the rain keeps pouring,
droplets sharp as ice
but nothing can put me down
