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