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