We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story out of deference, defiance and choice...
You've done enough - have you no sense of decency, sir?
My luminescence fades, the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid...
It brought me to my knees, pale, what if all these fantasies...?
Climb a mountain, climb it steeper, steeper...
Nature abhors a vacuum, but what's between your ears?
Twentieth century, go to sleep, really deep...
The kids have a new take, a new take on faith...
You can't wear that in this heat, it's all wrong...
There's a new planet in the solar system...
All your sad and lost apostles hum my name and flare their nostrils...
When the world is a monster, bad to swallow you whole...
At night, I drink myself to sleep and pretend I don't care that you're not here with me...
When your day is long, and the night, the night is yours alone...
I want to tell you how much I hate this...
This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche, I'm not afraid...
Crash land, no illusions, no collision, no intrusion...
When I got to the show, yo ho ho, I could tell that you had been crying...
I cannot tell a lie - it's not all cherry pie...
I save your messages just to hear your voice...
I've got your number - so does every kiss-and-tell...
Resign yourself that radio's gonna stay...
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world...
The battle's been lost, the war is not won...
Burn bright through the night, two pockets lead the way...
We were little boys, we were little girls...
I'm overwhelmed, I'm on repeat, I'm emptied out, I'm incomplete...
I'm head-first fighting everything, the crushing force of memory erasing all I've been...
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up...
You, I thought I knew you; you, I cannot judge...
I've had my fun, and now it's time to serve your conscience overseas...
You don't need me to tell you now that nothing can compare...
Another prop has occupied my time...
I have seen things that you will never see - leave it to memory me...

I had a hat - I put it down and it sunk...
You've dusted the non-believers and challenged the laws of chance...
You're so funny, you're so fine, you're so perfect...
I wanna be your Easter bunny, I wanna be your Christmas tree...
The wise man built his words upon the rocks, but I'm not bound to follow suit...
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen...
All I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints...
Pull your dress on and stay real close; who might leave you where I left off...
Give me a voice so strong I can question what I have seen...
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow, gold and silver shine...
Who will tend the farm museums? Who will dust today's belongings?
Moving in a still frame, howling at the moon...
Your feet are going to be on the ground - your head is there to move you around...
Tomorrow's gaining speed on you, it's all you want to do...
He was reared to give respect, but somewhere down the line...
Me, my thoughts are flower-strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon...
You come to me with positions, you come to me with excuses...
I don't know why you're mean to me when I call...
This winter song, I'll sing along, I've searched its still refrain...
You've been looking, but your search will never end...
I can't say that I love Jesus, that would be a hollow claim...
I want to kiss the astronauts when they salute to me...
Richard said, 'vitriol and disgust is not the same as apathy'...
I raised the wall and I will be the one to knock it down...
Death is pretty final - I'm collecting vinyl...
I didn't wear glasses 'cause I thought it might rain...
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi...
No solution, spleen venting, but I feel better having screamed, don't you?
The bells are ringing through the town again, children look up...
Hong Kong is present, Taipei awakes, all talk of circadian rhythm...
Stratch the scandals in the twilight...
Now there's nothing dark and there's nothing weird...
We're dug in deep, the price is steep, the auctioneer is such a creep...
It's these little things, they can pull you under...

The time to rise has been engaged, you're better best to re-arrange...
Do my eyes seem empty? I've forgotten how this feels...
Cinderella boy, you've lost your shoe...
I saw the ocean meet the man, I saw you buried in the sand...
I can smell the sorrow on your breath, the sweat, victory and sorrow...
40,000 stars in the evening, look at them fall from the sky...
There's a problem, feathers, iron, bargain buildings, weights and pullies...
Dreams, they complicate my life...
You don't really love that guy you make it with, now do you?
Wrap your heel in bones of steel, turn the leg...
As it started to rain, two spirits dancing, so strange...
He's not coming back, so you work it out, overfeed the cat...
Did you understand me right? The people here are good...
Should we talk about the weather? Should we talk about the government?
Hey, Andy, are you goofing on Elvis? Are we losing touch?
This is not a challenge, it just means that I love you...
It's only made me harder, my heart thrown open wide...
I was hell, sarcastic, silver, swell...

The insurgency began and you missed it...
She's a sad tomato, she's three miles of bad road...

Point me to the stars, I'm up for the chase...
Hang up your chairs to better sweep, clear the floor to dance...
Stay off that highway - word is, it's not that safe...
I'd sooner chew my leg off than be trapped in this...
I crossed your great divide, I stirred your ocean's tide...
Write the holy terror, suck the marrow from the bone...
I rang the church bell 'til my ears bled red blood cells...
Hey kid, where are you? Nobody tells you what to do, baby...
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered crop...
A candy bar, a falling star and a reading from Dr Seuss...
