Randy Newman – I Think It's Going To Rain Today lyrics

Broken windows and empty hallways
A pale dead moon in the sky streaked with gray
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles
With frozen smiles to chase love away
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
Think I'll kick it down the street
That's the way to treat a friend

Bright before me the signs implore me
To help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

    I take this song in a very different way. It is about loss - either break up of a relationship or more likely the death of a loved one.
    Human kindness is the reaction of friends, but the writer is so depressed instead of gaining comfort he hurts those being kind.
    Metaphorically he kicks his friends down the street like an old tin can. Knows he shouldn't but just can't help it.

    I know nothing about what the writer actually meant, but what I feel when I read these lyrics is that the human race is a sad one. That we are each individually filled with endearing life and feeling and love and we are beautiful, but that we don't know how to take care of our world, and therefore we don't take care of ourselves. We treat our world and our fellow earth inhabitants poorly. However, the author believes that mankind is ripe with kindness and that today might be the day it over flows and "rains" down.
