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