Gardenhead/Leave Me Alone Lyrics - Neutral Milk Hotel
Review The Song (2)
There are beads that wrap
Around your knees that crackle into the dark
Like a walk in the park like a hole in your head
Like the feeling you get when you realize you're dead-
This time we ride roller coasters into the ocean
We feel no emotion as we spiral down to the world
And I guess it's worth your time
Because there's some lives you live
And some you leave behind
It gets hard to explain
The gardenhead knows my name-
Leave me alone, for you know this isn't the first time
In fact this is twice in a row
That the angels have slipped through our landslide
And filled up our garden with snow
And I don't wish the taste of your insides
sponsored linksOr to call out your name through my phone
For the glory boys at your bedside will love you
As long as you're something to own
Will love you as long as your something to own
Follow me through a city of frost covered angels
I swear I have nothing to prove
I just want to dance in your tangles
To give me some reason to move
But to take on the world at all angles
Requires a strength I can't use
So I'll meet you up high in your anger
Of all that is hoping and waiting for you
Of all that is hoping and waiting for you.

On Avery Island is a classic | Reviewer: Lou | 9/9/12
It's hard to single out a "favorite" on this album but this one definitely Moves me. It is powerful and passionate, angry and vulnerable.
I avoided this album for years having been introduced to nmh with aero planes, it always seemed to "raw" and "noisy" but I now consider this to be one of my all time favorite albums. The lyrics are beautifully honest, poetic, creepy dark and overall intriguing. I can't say enough about nmh. Im very appreciative of having the privilege of having experienced their work.

SOmething about this song is touching. Every time i listen to it I feel chills running down my spine. Very obscure but one of nmh's best, IMO it beats out their popular stuff like aeoplane over the sea
