Ah, ah
Ah, ah
Ah, ah

The sky is a neighborhood
So keep it down
Heart is a storybook
A star burned out

The sky is a neighborhood
Don't make a sound
Lights coming up ahead
Don't look now

The sky is a neighborhood (ah, ah)
The sky is a neighborhood (ah, ah)
Don't look now

Oh, my dear, heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep somehow
Bangin' on the ceiling
Bangin' on the ceiling
Keep it down

Oh, my dear, heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep somehow
Bangin' on the ceiling
Bangin' on the ceiling
Keep it down

Mind is a battlefield
All hope is gone
Trouble to the right and left
Whose side you're on?

Thoughts like a minefield
I'm a ticking bomb
Maybe you should watch your step
Don't get lost

The sky is a neighborhood (ah, ah)
The sky is a neighborhood (ah, ah)
Don't get lost

Oh, my dear, heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep somehow
Bangin' on the ceiling
Bangin' on the ceiling
Keep it down

Oh, my dear, heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep somehow
Bangin' on the ceiling
Bangin' on the ceiling
Keep it down

The sky is a neighborhood

Heart is a storybook
A star burned out
Something coming up ahead
Don't look now

Oh, my dear, heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep somehow
Bangin' on the ceiling
Bangin' on the ceiling
Keep it down

Oh, my dear, heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep somehow
Bangin' on the ceiling
Bangin' on the ceiling
Keep it down

(The sky is a neighborhood) oh, my dear, heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep somehow (the sky is a neighborhood)
Bangin' on the ceiling
Bangin' on the ceiling
Keep it down

The sky is a neighborhood

    My InterpretationFor me, it is talking about all the great musicians who have passed on in the last few years- obviously joining all the other dead legends, thereby creating not just an awesome band, but a neighborhood that we'll all move to eventually.
    Great song, no matter.

    Song FactI like atilla's ideas, but I read an interview from Rolling Stone and Dave Grohl the author of the song.He told how he'd watched .a Neil DeGrasse Tyson video called, “The Most Astounding Fact.”
    Turns out it was written about life but a little differently...Dr Tyson had explained how life forming aspects in the universe were present everywhere...I'm embarrassed to admit it's a little complicated for me, but reading the interview will reveal all. Love Marcia in Modesto l
