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