Lines from a song

So a while back, there was a very short-lived thread on the message boards entitled "lines from a book". But the guy who started it just really doesn't play well with others and every post on it (including my own) sort of comes off like literary snobbery.

That's no way to build community. It occurred to me a little earlier that the literary form most (particularly young) people know best is popular song. Plus I'm sure I'm not the only one who could use a few leads on interesting music. So show us a bit of lyrical wizardry. The lines don't have to be deep, but try to keep them interesting. And SHORT! No pee breaks allowed :)

For example:

"You're in his car getting high
pair of fuzzy dice in the dashboard light
Supertoke and the smoke is in his eyes
Your head is swimming with the anticipation.

Suddenly, you're puking out the window
with your pants around your knees.
But he's a nice boy, so he drops you on your street"

Lyrics from the song 'Almost Summer', by Jason Collett,

Sunny Day
Sweepin' the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet

Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to Sesame Street

Come and play
Everything's A-OK
Friendly neighbors there
That's where we meet

Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Street

It was a toss up between this and the opening theme from Miami Vice . Actually I don't quite know the lyrics to Miami Vice. Are there lyrics?

Lost among the recesses of the undefined
Ethereal psychotic haze
Seemeingly endless is the fall
No stable memories to recall
(You came and took the rest of them all)
No sre warning ever heard
You are fragile

When you expect the pain
Nothing more to ascertain
When you respect the lie
Deadly chasm opened wide

Victim of the killers seething in the depest mind
Ever existing out of phase
Steadily falling out of line
No trace of living left to find
(You came to make me one of your kind)
Don't leave me here
Please don't leave me here
Gave me so much to fear
You've left me with such pretty scars...

--Chasm by Circle of Dust
