You cry like a window on an overcast day
and you gaze out of your own, the whole world blurred
And you see a shape moving so gently
and dancing in the distance
As if a beautiful man encased in flames
were making making love to the night
And wraps his enourmous spherical arms
to kiss and embrace and create the lights
And he points and dabs up at the sky
and explosions and stars are born
and then he creates what is to become me
from a piece of himself that he tore

And he lets me drift out from his fingers
on a rainbow trail of light
You smile and tears shoot down your face
and you allowed me into your life

And the window fogs from our heat
that comes from the exhausts of our hearts
And the temperature rises so high
that i\'m afraid it will soon rip us apart
but the scent of you is beautiful
and i will not be forgetting soon

Now, i know that i\'ve got low self esteem
cause i came from such a trivial man
but you remind me every chance you get
That i was exactly his plan
i am a human being, flesh and blood and soul.
And no matter how disgusting i think i am
As long as i know that i am wonderful
I am always clean and pure enough to hold.

So the children of the sky eat it up
like locusts in a field
and the holes in the sky become the planets
from emerald and magenta to teal
And just as it spins out of control
invisible hands come to catch it
and set it back on its original course
to keep safe the newborn creation.

And you open the depths
that you kept in your chest
and let the beast burst out
it quickly attempts
to tear me to shreds
but i simply kiss its mouth
and it turns into a kitten again
my old sweet and gentle friend
and i quote the immortal words of the wise
do not fear for i have memorized them

you are a human being, flesh and blood and soul.
And no matter how disgusting you think you are
As long as you know that you are wonderful
you are always clean and pure enough to hold.

Don't tell me - you're a Jeff Mangum fan right?! Very strong influences - I like it.

Surely the bizarre imagery and stream-of-consciousness style are pure Neutral Milk Hotel?

i guess so! but i dont really want to be seen as the new jeff mangum or whatever cause that would take away from his beauty, and he wouldnt be as great because there would be somebody who sounded like him.

nah, just purely a great way to write, now if he starts singing and playing like jeff, then......
but i know a lot of people that do stream of conscience writing, and it all seems somewhat similar on paper

I love it. I can hear the pauses and the chords. Great stuff.
