"Insanity is in the eye of the beholder"

The wind blows over the field
Of beautiful but ugly flowers
They dance gently in the breeze
Awaiting for the rains to come

The pretty red petals
Down to their bone-sucking roots
They stand up tall, waiting
Awaiting for the rains to come

In the distance you can hear the wind
Its calling in pain and grief
But this is good news for the flowers
The rains are soon to come

These beautiful red flowers
They are the ugliest weed of all

Here come the clouds
White and fluffy
And here comes the rain
Dark and heavy

The flowers sing with happiness
As the rain falls heavily
More, more they cry
It’s such a disgusting sight

As they reach up
The rains still fall
The clouds are happy to give more
It’s such a disgusting sight

The rains are soon over
And the flowers calm down
The clouds begin to move away
Everything is calm

But when another breeze begins to blow
Signaling the approaching storm
The beautiful but ugly flowers
Begin to sing again

Beautiful white clouds
Bring us our rain
Let our color brighten
With the blood of the black winds
