Everything That Happens
Brian Eno & David Byrne Lyrics

I ride on a perfect freeway
Many people on that road
I heard the sound of someone laughing
I saw my neighbor's car explode

Just up ahead
Against the sky
Quicker than you blink your eye

Oh my brother, I still wonder, are you alright?
And among the living, we are giving, all through the night

From the milk of human kindness
From the breast we all partake
Hungry for a social contract
She welcomes you with dark embrace

(Puts) socks and shoes
Upon our feet
Little fishes swim upstream

Oh my brother, I still wonder, are you alright?
In the deepest silence, gold and diamonds, all through the night

[Repeat: x2]
Everything that happens will happen today
And nothing has changed, but nothing's the same
And every tomorrow could be yesterday
And everything that happens will happen today

This whole album is great. A gem that grows like rock candy! Play it with some headphones and take a walk you won’t regret


Am doing, sounds crazy, love it

Raoul Trahan

Listened to this album over and over ten years ago on the day my son was born. Life is Long, especially. As I cried tears of joy, this was the perfect soundtrack to life.

Michael A

cant get enough of "I Feel My Stuff". The piano and guitar sounds are just SO Eno, I love it

sefer shmot

Alan G.

Laced with some of the warmest music I've heard from these two, this is an extremely enjoyable & satisfying album! My life would be a far less interesting place to be were it not for Eno & Byrne!


2 greats coming together to create a masterpiece. Every song is amazing.


"I feel my stuff"- def my favorite track on this great album!

Brett Warren

This album has held up really well, and frankly seems to keep getting better. When it came out it felt kind of jarring and borderline disappointing to me because I was expecting My Life in the Bush of Ghosts 2 for some reason.
