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