Real World Lyrics
I wonder what it's like to know that I make the rain
I'd store it in boxes with little yellow tags on everyone
And you can come see them when I'm...done, when I'm
I wonder what it's like...

I think its about how he wants the real world to stop being a struggle and instead he wants to rise above it and get away from it.

He wonders what it would be like if he provided the money (making it rain boyee)
He wonders what it'd be like if he was important (being a superhero)
He wonders what it would be like if he had respect. (Head honcho)
Furthermore, he is stating he is sick of the "real world" because its problems concern him.

I think it's based on Mt. 4:1-11, when Jesus is tempted three times by the devil in the desert.
#1 - make bread from stone, a reference to Moses getting water from stone (Rainmaker)
#2 - jump off the Temple (fly around downtown)
#3 - rule the world (be the head honcho)
