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