LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
Another prop has occupied my time...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
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...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...

40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
The insurgency began and you missed it...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
There's a new planet in the solar system...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
