It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
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...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
The insurgency began and you missed it...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
Another prop has occupied my time...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?

I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
There's a new planet in the solar system...
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
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...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
