Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...

Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
There's a new planet in the solar system...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...

I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
Another prop has occupied my time...
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
The insurgency began and you missed it...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
