Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
There's a new planet in the solar system...
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
Another prop has occupied my time...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
We were little boys, we were little girls...

Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
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...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...

Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
The insurgency began and you missed it...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
