This is either the third or fourth time I’ve seen these guys. Tonight was a perfectly beautiful night for an outdoor concert.

Here is the highlight of tonight’s concert with …

When I think of heaven 
Deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of flying down into a sea of pens and feathers 
And all other instruments of faith and sex and God 
In the belly of a black-winged bird 
Don’t try to feed me 
‘Cause I’ve been here before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen 
I belong anywhere but in between 
She’s been crying, I’ve been thinking 
And I am the rain king

I said mama, mama, mama 
Why am I so alone? 
I can’t go outside, I’m scared, I might not make it home 
But I’m alive, but I’m sinking in 
If there’s anyone home at your place 
Why don’t you invite me in? 
Don’t try to bleed me 
‘Cause I’ve been there before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen 
I belong anywhere but in between 
She’s been lying, I’ve been sinking 
And I am the rain king

Hey, I only want the same as anyone 
Henderson is waiting for the sun 
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends 
After all the dreaming I come home again

When I think of heaven 
Deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of dying 
Lay me down in a field of flame and heather 
Render up my body into the burning heart of God 
In the belly of a black-winged bird 
Don’t try to bleed me 
‘Cause I’ve been here before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen 
I belong anywhere but in between 
She’s been dying 
And I’ve been drinking and I am the rain king
‘Cause I say I am the rain king
‘Cause I say I am the rain king, yeah
