breaking bad

'drive boy dog boy dirty numb angel boy'

A while ago iainjcoleman had a post asking for people's favourite beginnings to songs. I usually like lyrics that describe something interesting that's going on.

Here are some:

'This is Ground Control to Major Tom/ Take your protein pills and put your helmet on'

'The Indians send signals from the rocks above the pass/ the Cowboys take position in the bushes and the grass.'

'Eleanor Rigby/ Picks up the rice in a church where a wedding has been'

'Is it worth it/ A new winter coat and shoes for the wife/ And a bicycle on the boy’s birthday?'

The other kind I like is abstract and impressionistic (like Born Slippy or Can't Stop). Anyone got any other suggestions?
