This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...

You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
Another prop has occupied my time...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
The insurgency began and you missed it...
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
There's a new planet in the solar system...
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
