LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
Another prop has occupied my time...
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
There's a new planet in the solar system...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...

Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
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...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...

You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
The insurgency began and you missed it...
We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
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...
