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