LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
Dreams, they complicate my life...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
Another prop has occupied my time...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?

Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
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...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...

A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
There's a new planet in the solar system...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
The insurgency began and you missed it...
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
