  • In deepest hollow of our minds
    A system failure left behind
    And their necks crane
    As they turn to pray for rain
    And their necks crane

    Dull residue of what once was
    A shattered cloud of swirling doves
    And their eyes change
    As they learn to see through flames
    And their necks crane
    As they turn to pray for rain
    Their eyes change
    As they learn to see through flames
    And their necks crane
    As they turn to pray for rain (pray for rain)

    Drops on rocks fall fast and fleeting
    Hearts and wings commence to beating
    Woods unseen with all believing
    Vision walls fall all receding
    Vision walls fall all receding

    Drops on rocks come fast and fleeting
    Rhythm laws unleash their meaning
    Usher us into the dreaming
    Vision walls fall all receding
    Hearts and wings commence to beating
    All unending all completing
    Vision walls fall fast and fleeting
    Vision walls fall all revealing
    Vision walls fall all revealing
    Vision walls fall all revealing
    Vision walls fall all revealing

    In deepest hollow of our minds
    A system failure left behind
    Dull residue of what once was
    A shattered cloud of swirling doves
    And their eyes changed
    As they learned to see through flames
    And their necks craned
    As they prayed for rain Writer/s: Babatunde Omoroga Adebimpe, Grantley Evan Marshall, Neil James Davidge, Robert Del Naja
