LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
The insurgency began and you missed it...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...

You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
Another prop has occupied my time...
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...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...

I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
There's a new planet in the solar system...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
