about

Written at MSP International Airport on Michael's birthday a few years ago. Staring at a huge storm front making it's way into town, it reminded me how awesome nature is.

lyrics

I was born a wispy mist
jealous of the cumulus
hoping that someday instead
I'd become a Thunderhead

Passing by on heaven's breath
for a cloud there is no death
shedding tears on fools earthbound
how they fear my every sound

When you begin your life
in the middle of a heat exchange
any little pressure drop
is likely to enrage you
You must be a cloud
You must be a cloud

When I turn from white to gray
something dark is on it's way
see the sky burst into tears
see why I deserve your fear

When you begin your life
in the middle of a heat exchange
any little pressure drop
is likely to enrage you
You must be a cloud

Clear blue sky
no prevailing wind
and where am I?
Lost in space again

When you begin your life
in the middle of a heat exchange
any little pressure drop
is likely to enrage you
You must be a cloud

When you begin your life
in the middle of a heat exchange
any little pressure drop
is likely to enrage you
it's likely to enrage you
it's likely to enrage you
