Believable Picnic – Shangri-La lyrics

Here the bridges just aren't long
Enough, I walk but never
Reach the other side.
Here this building's never tall
Enough for me to touch the sky.
I've heard about a place where
Everyone knows how to fly,

Here statues on a palace
Lawn are all the friends I had
That turned to stone.
Tears rolling down their ivory
Cheeks they didn't make it home.
I'm going to a land where all the
Hearts beat at one time,

Everybody's fine in Shangri-La,
Children draw the trees there in
Crayola forest green.
Everybody smiles in Shangri-La,
Built inside the pearly whites so
Bright they light the day.

Here within the land of make
Believe, it's lipstick and a comb,
And it's Judas on a throne.
Weird how silver lies and golden
Rules they teach their
Kids in school to never say
Forever so they severed all
Their ties with Shangri-La

They say it never rains in
Shangri-La a multi-colored
Rainbow fades into a neon sky
Taste candied coated halos
While pakadotted ponies teach
The children how to fly

Here our seasons have all
Learned to share the summer
Sun can warm the winter air
Here leaves only fall to kiss
The ground and it makes
The sweetest sound
We'll start another language
Using all the words that
Rhyme with Shangri-La

The silver snow in Shangri-La
Turns to silver sand so it will
Never melt away come along
With me to Shangri-La we'll
Build a silver snowman on the
Warmest summers day
No one ever cries in Shangri-La
We take a kiss and mix it
With a glass of ocean wine
And if you close your eyes in
Shangri-La a million falling stars
Will gently whisper you to sleep
And when whisper you to sleep
And when you wake you'll find
It's not a dream.
