I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
There's a new planet in the solar system...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...

You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
The insurgency began and you missed it...
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
Another prop has occupied my time...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
