You can save the mountain dew, I'm in it for the downpour
if your roots aren't dug in, what're you in the ground for?
It's muddy down here, lots of gross bugs around here
when a flood comes through, are you gonna drown here?
Not me, I'll have that squeaky clean sparkle shine
I'm used to this cycle, I mean I do it all the time
I drink deep from the water in the ground from the sky
cause I'm looking forward to a week or two that stays dry.
I didn't say it's pleasant going underwater for an hour
but it's the rain not the shade that replenishes the flower
so don't get bummed out when there's tears in the forecast
just remind yourself that this too will pass.
