Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...

I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
The insurgency began and you missed it...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
Another prop has occupied my time...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
There's a new planet in the solar system...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
