Neutral Milk Hotel Everything Is Lyrics

[Monologue]
Adult: "Who were you?"
Child: "A member of 'Kiss' or a punk rocker."
A: "Every year?"
C: "'Just kind of funny, yeah, I would dress up as a... punk rocker, when I was, um... little."
A: "So what'd you do when you became a punk rocker?"
C: "I wore a trash bag."

Growing sleepy as the rain falls
As children draped in flowers form a chain
They sing a song with jelly jars and bird calls
As night falls into dust and it's day again

I'm not afraid of a love parade in my daydream
Old men with kazoos and beating drums
But I awake and I see the streets are ice cream
It's just you and me and oh dear, our life has just begun

[Chorus]
Everything is beautiful here
It's spinning circles around my ears
I'm finally breaking free from fear
And it's fading

Oh beautiful smiles, won't you stay awhile
We could close the door and sleep all day
It's a September sky with pretty pictures in my mind
That's lost its feeling of so afraid

[Chorus]

Grown sleepy now as the rain falls
As children draped in flowers form a chain
They sing a song with jelly jars and bird calls
As night falls into dust and it's day again

[Chorus]
