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