There's a new planet in the solar system...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
Another prop has occupied my time...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
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...
Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
The insurgency began and you missed it...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
