Best opening line in a song

Oh maybe, maybe it's the clothes we wear
The tasteless bracelets and the dye in our hair
"She lives in a steel comb world
Where sad men in leather will fight over girls"

The Human Face - Doll By Doll
I've come across the desert
To greet you with a smile
My camel looks so tired
It's hardly worth my while
Used all my options
Worked off my dues
Laid all the cards down
There's nothing to lose
Don't want tomorrow to be like today
That's why I'm breaking away
Thank you for the flowers,
I threw them on the fire
And I burned the photograph
That you had enclosed -
God, they were ugly children!
"I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand"

A very familiar sounding opening riff....

Two favs are:

“I bomb atomically, Socrates' philosophies and hypotheses”


“I wanna slit your throat and f*** the wound
Wanna push my face in and feel the swoon”

With an honourable mention too

“Old Red eyes is back
Red from the night before the night before”
Well you didn't wake up this morning 'cause you didn't go to bed
You were watching the whites of your eyes turn red
