"Everything Disappears When You Come Around" as written by and Kevin Barnes....
When you come around, everything else disappears.
My ears disappear.
When you come around, everything else vanishes.

The crowds slowly fade when you come around.
Everything evaporates when you come around.

On the news at night,
They talk about the disappearances.
They interview the people who were witnesses.
Most are shocked, some don't care.

When you come around, everything else disappears.
My mouth disappears.
When you come around, everything else vanishes.

The birds have no heads when you come around.
Everything loses its legs when you come around.

On the news at night,
They talk about the abnormalities.
They interview the people who are authorities.
Most are intrigued, some don't care
When you come around.

When you are near,
I feel so far away from the person I am
Alone I feel like I'm jumping on a trampoline.

When you come around, everything else disappears.
My eyes disappear.
When you come around, everything else vanishes.

The sunlight swims away when you come around,
And even darkness won't stay
When you come around.

    General CommentI think it means that like, when that one person is around you, you can't really concentrate on anything else but them- it's like everything is disappearing around you, besides that person. If you've ever seen like, West Side Story, when Tony first sees Maria and stuff ,everyone around them is blurry besides each other- they're all they see.

    It's SO ADORABLE. This is the first Of Montreal song I ever heard and it won me over.

    I wanna see them play on Halloween :)

    Song MeaningI'm pretty sure this song is about the effects of drugs. Everything disappears to your senses, and imagery such as "Everything loses its legs when you come around" emphasizes this, and They talk about the abnormalities
    "They interview the people who are authorities
    Most are intrigued, some don't care
    When you come around"
    Could represent the news stories about drugs.

    General CommentIt's so cute and so creepy. It's like... things are literally disappearing. The birds have no heads, darkness goes away.
