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