  • Right As Rain is a song Tom wrote about his father's death. The latter was 63 at the time Tom was given life. Mr Barman died while Tom was at a party at the Paradox (a legendary music club in Antwerp now called Café Local), causing him to develop an overwhelming sense of guilt for a while.

Back to the lyrics overview


I’m the same by name
I had a friend called ‘generous Bilby’
He was the same by name
His only advice was that he died
While I did a little dance
From dust to dust the preacher sighted
I did a little cry

On adjourn by name
Last there at long
It’s not fair to blame me
For not believing what I saw
His only advice was that I danced
In the shinny white shirt
He should have known
I’d be the last, to be there first

Right as rain

Tombstone and the damage done
How beautiful the naked skin
How beautiful it glows
This is where the bleeding stops
And this is what it shows
It has turned into a scar, the same
Just the same, the same
But anyway

This is where the sane will park
His foot upon your toes

On a man my name
Had a friend called ‘deadly Bilby’
But he slipped away

And he said:
Pour me out some whiskey man,
There’s something you should know.
The person that you take me for,
Was buried long ago…

Right as rain

Tombstone and the damage done
How beautiful the poetry
How beautiful the prose
This is where the story ends
And this is where it goes
It just turned into an alibi
But anyway

This is where the sane will park
His foot upon your toes
