* "Take Me to Church" by Music/{{Hozier}} can fall into this. WordOfGod is that it's a metaphor about the Catholic Church and its stance on homosexuality, although if you don't know this, the lyrics sound somewhat nonsensical.

Get something shiny\\
Something meaty for the main course\\
That's a fine-looking high horse\\

* Many heavy metal lyrics have cool\threatening phrases stringed together, even if they don't make much sense. For instance, the chorus of "Two Minutes to Midnight" by Music/IronMaiden is a metaphorical description of the DoomsdayClock. The verses, just random WarIsHell sentences.

* The third-person-view story in the lyrics to American Girl by Music/TomPettyAndTheHeartbreakers is suddenly interrupted by a first-person-view chorus of the singer having sex with someone. Isn't it rude to sing about some other girl while you're having sex with the one in front of you?
-->Oh yeah! All right!
-->Take it easy baby!
-->Make it last all night!
-->She was... an American girl!
