LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
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...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
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...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
Another prop has occupied my time...
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...

No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
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...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
There's a new planet in the solar system...
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...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
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...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
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 bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...

He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
The insurgency began and you missed it...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
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...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
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...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
