from A Scientific Search by Erik Ritland

about

Inspired by: Chris Ritland, a rainy day in April 2020 (weren't they all?), the VFW in Uptown Minneapolis, God, Christina Rossetti, paranoia, surreal walks downtown St. Paul when everything was closed

lyrics

I’ve got my reasons for taking a different way
Ignoring dreary Uptown
It’s so far away from me

You can’t beat the rain
In this driving wind

I have been planning
But all I do is laugh
Tripping on bleak mid-winter
I know that they’re after me

You can’t beat the rain
In this driving wind

Let’s take a walk downtown
Even if no-one’s there
We can sing in the rain
And remember what used to be
