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