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