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