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