The best opening lines in music

No order. Excludes samples and spoken word segments
1Manic Street Preachers

I am an architect
They call me a butcher
2Neutral Milk Hotel
Holland, 1945

The only girl I've ever loved
Was born with roses in her eyes
But then they buried her alive
One evening 1945
With just her sister at her side

Counting all different ideas drifting away
Past and present, they don't matter
Now the future's sorted out

Who’s the boy you like the most
Is he teasing you with underage?
Could he be waving from a tropical sunset?
Static silhouette somehow
Single in his bed someday
Quiet 'til it falls falls falls
5Kids See Ghosts

I'm so, I'm so reborn, I'm movin' forward
Keep movin' forward, keep movin' forward
Ain't no stress on me Lord, I'm movin' forward
Keep movin' forward, keep movin' forward
6The Verve
The Drugs Don't Work

All this talk of getting old
It's getting me down, my love
Like a cat in a bag
Waiting to drown
This time I'm coming down
7LCD Soundsystem
I Can Change

Tell me a line
Make it easy for me
Open your arms
Dance with me until I feel all right
Whatever Happened to Violence?

The voices in my head they got voices in my their head 
Who got voices in their head who got voices in their head 
Whatever happened to violence? Iron sharpens iron 
Sharpens iron sharpens Iron
If You Cry

Tear ducts seem such a useless tool
To a man's feelings forged in the arts of cool
Man Wearing a Helmet

Crouched down by the tree at his
He liked the way the bark ripped off like paper
He pretended he was Superman, eyes had lasers
Every step he took turned earth into craters
Little brown jacket, Lee jeans with a cuff
Bowl cut, blue and yellow mismatched Chucks
He's a sitting duck, didn't hear the car pull up
Thought his arm broke when they shoved him in the trunk
11Twenty Centuries of Stony Sleep
Circuit Crooks

The skin unfolds and the wires rush in, I lose myself as they plug me in
Could it be they blocked out the sun?
12Manic Street Preachers
William's Last Words

Isn't it lovely, when the dawn brings the dew?
I'll be watching over you
13International Blue

You wrote your autograph on the far side of the sky
You recorded the falling rain but you never told us why
14Sorority Noise
Second Later From St. Julien

You say there's a god
And you say you've got proof
Well I've lost friends to heroin
So what's your god trying to prove?
Death Is Silent

Death is silent
It hides high in the night's confinement
Vile and violent
Minding a time to try us
And remind us
That we cry when time is denied us
To incite this
Fear of death inside us
16Sigur Ros

I have arrived again
Into you
It is so good to be here
But to stop only for a little while
I float around in a submarine cocoon

[nb: translated from Icelandic]
17Have a Nice Life

I feel the top of the roof come off
Kill everybody there
As I'm watching all the stars burn out
Trying to pretend that I care
Broken Heart

Though I have a broken heart
I'm too busy to be heartbroken
There's a lot of things that need to be done
Lord, I have a broken heart
19Manic Street Preachers

Mr Lenin - awaken the boy
Mr Stalin - bisexual epoch
Khrushchev - self love in his mirrors
Brezhnev - married into group sex
Gorbachev - celibate self importance
Yeltsin - failure is his own impotence
Heavy Metal Drummer

Oh I sincerely miss those heavy metal bands
I used to go see on the landing in the summer

How can I convince you it's me I don't like
And not be so indifferent to the look in your eyes
When I've always been distant
And I've always told lies for love?
Motion Picture Soundtrack

Red wine and sleeping pills
Help me get back to your arms
23Okkervil River

Red is my favorite color
Red like your mother's eyes after a while
Of crying about how you don't love her
No Surprises

A heart that's full up like a landfill
A job that slowly kills you
Bruises that won't heal
25Daft Punk
Digital Love

Last night I had a dream about you

Three inches above the floor
Man in a box wants to burn my soul
And I'm tired
27Mount Eerie
Tintin in Tibet

I sing to you
I sing to you, Geneviève
I sing to you
You don't exist
I sing to you though
28Rage Against The Machine
People of the Sun

Since fifteen hundred and sixteen
Minds attacked and overseen
29Car Seat Headrest
Beach Life-in-Death

Last night I drove to Harper's ferry and I thought about you
30Animal Collective
Alvin Row

Baby love me now that you are born
Straight Outta Compton

Straight outta Compton
Crazy motherfucker named Ice Cube
From the gang called Niggaz With Attitudes
When I'm called off, I got a sawed-off
Squeeze the trigger and bodies are hauled off
32Dr. Dre
The Next Episode

Top Dogg, bite 'em all, nigga, burn the shit up
D-P-G-C, my nigga, turn that shit up
33The Beatles

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
34Guided by Voices
I Am A Scientist

I am a scientist, I seek to understand me
All of my impurities and evils yet unknown
I am a journalist, I write to you to show you
I am an incurable, and nothing else behaves like me
In the Darkness

So maybe later man
There's an elegant land
In the darkness
36The Beatles
A Day in the Life

I read the news today, oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well, I just had to laugh
Express Yourself

I'm expressing with my full capabilities
And now I'm living in correctional facilities
'Cause some don't agree with how I do this
I get straight, meditate like a Buddhist
38Arcade Fire
Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)

And if the snow buries my
My neighborhood
And if my parents are crying
Then I'll dig a tunnel
From my window to yours
Yeah, a tunnel from my window to yours
39Neutral Milk Hotel
Two Headed Boy pt. 2

Daddy, please hear this song that I sing
In your heart there's a spark that just screams
For a lover to bring a child to your chest that could lay as you sleep
And love all you have left like your boy used to be
Long ago wrapped in sheets warm and wet
40Daft Punk
Instant Crush

didn't want to be the one to forget
I thought of everything I'd never regret
A little time with you is all that I get
That's all we need because it's all we can take
41Kanye West

Shit could get menacing, frightening, find help
Sometimes I scare myself, myself

So sentimental
Not sentimental, no
Romantic, not discussing it
43Shining (NOR)
The Madness and the Damage Done

The madness and the damage done
The madness and the damage done
You write one more thing in my book of lies
I brainwash myself a blood-stained mind
Put on a glass, It'll never forget the pain
The same old, same old hurting game
44Exit Sun

Exit sun
Malefic one
Sunborne son
Sinful one
45Make a Change...Kill Yourself
Life Revisited

A journey through damnation
It grows within me, breathes within me
A dark plague which has risen in my mind
Nothingness, emptiness and total desolation
