When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
Six of one, half-dozen the other - tell that to the captain's mother...
The insurgency began and you missed it...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?

Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
Try to rope in followes to float their malcontent...
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...

When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...
Another prop has occupied my time...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
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...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
There's a new planet in the solar system...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
