Balloons and confetti make me happy

Who cares that it was like the gig in 2009. I could see this show once a year for the rest of my life and be mesmerised with happiness each and every time. Such a thing of beauty, the sky raining with colour, and beautiful lyrics filling the air. The Flaming Lips are generous, creative souls and there is a lot to be said for spending your life making people happy.

Do You Realize - that happiness makes you cry
Do You Realize - that everyone you know someday will die
And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun don'-go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round
