A song about an umbrella salesman

Lyrics:

A Busy young salesman goes from door to door
Selling magic umbrellas
"See such wondrous sights"
But no one believed not a single word he said
He knocked on all the doors but no one answered him
This Left the man depressed
For no one bought an umbrella from him

Then one day it rained
So the man used his umbrellas
But oh! it had some holes
Then rain water poured over him

This left the man in the cold
He's all alone in this world
And people doubt his umbrellas
They doubt its magic

La~~la~La lala la la
no one want his umbrellas
La~~la~La lala la
There's no such thing as magic

So the man found his way to top
Of a forty-foot building
As he gazed upon the city
The people looked to him

His determined to show them all
He will prove his umbrellas are magic
With a firm resolve
And a strong clear voice
He shouted out his sales pitch!

Float up to the skies above you
its a real bird's eye view
See comets and shooting stars
Come and lay in the silver clouds

Come with me let us bask in the great sun's
Radiant light that warms our souls
Take my hand we shall reach the Heaven's
Let us walk the Ethereal Fields!

Everything stood still
The city was silent
Did the umbrella work?
Everyone was lost for words

But the salesman did in fact
Touched the ground and felt the sky
Then the people took each an umbrella!
And left the money on the ground

Steampianist... y u so underrated. You deserve so many more fans than you have.

Handling that vocaloid like a boss. Excellent job. You are entering the NGADM this year, yes? If so, I very much look forward to your submissions.

Keep it up, you can't stay under appreciated forever, you're going places.

This is such a beautiful song. It's people like you that can bring the best out of vocaloids, even if some people say that they're for the talentless.

I love how you covered so many genres here. It's extremely progressive, without a chorus, and going into tons of different styles in sequence. Some sections sound melancholy, some sound exciting, and the part between 1:49 and 3:54 sounds like it could've been in the Pokemon RSE soundtrack.

How long did it take you to make this? Because if it took less than two weeks, this type of song would definitely be a huge contender in NGADM '14.

Excellent work!
