Acid Rain Lyrics

Play "Acid Rain"
on Amazon Music

Our day has come
It's drawn in the sky
So don't shed a tear now
Be thankful for the time

Life wouldn't be so precious dear if there never was an end

Children still play in the garden
Dance as the sun slips away

We stand on the edge...

    I feel the song is telling people that you are going to die (Our day has come). No matter how sad it is, you will die and life will go on without (Children still play in the garden) you but that you should be thankful for every second you get (Life wouldn't be so precious dear, if there never was an end).

    I see this song as a wake-up call to everyone.
    Although this song is extremely deep and there are several different interpretations that could be applied to it, I see this the most strongly.

    Basically it's saying that nobody will live forever. We are all going to die.
    Sanders clearly is singing to someone close to him, telling them these things.

    He reminds the listener in the first verses to be thankful for the time they have and that life is precious because of the brevity, indicating that they should make best effort to live life to the fullest in what time they have.

    In the second set of verses he singing to his loved one again, repeating once again that the end of time is approaching, and in the midst of all that, he loves her/him and they will always have a place in his heart.
    And basically that their love is timeless, saying:
    "There's no death, no end of time when I'm facing it with you."

    The line of the chorus:
    "Children still play in the garden
    dance as the sun slips away."
    Seems as if it is referring to the fact that even with death, other people are still carrying on as normal, life still goes on until their "sun slips away"

    The next line in the chorus:"Not even stars last forever." is once again referring to the fact that everything has its time and that everything has an end to it.

    In the bridge, Sanders is telling his listener to not anticipate death, nor to fear it.
    "Stand near to me, don't look, be brave,"

    The final line: "Send us home." is referring to death.
