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