* 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 song "Afternoons in Utopia" by {{Music/Alphaville}} features the most abstract lyrics on an album full of songs pretty abstract to begin with.
-->Mighty Mamoondog drifts across the grass
-->Healing lullabies for Easter time on Mars
-->Paint your hats and shoes with flowers and with stars
-->Singing in metropolitan operas.

** Two Minutes to Midnight by Music/IronMaiden
-->Kill for gain or shoot to maim
-->But we don't need a reason
-->The golden goose is on the loose
-->And never out of season
-->Blackened pride still burns inside
-->This shell of bloody treason
-->Here's my gun for a barrel of fun
-->For the love of living death

-->...

-->Two minutes to midnight,
-->The hands that threaten doom
-->Two minutes to midnight,
-->To kill the unborn in the womb

* 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!

* Until You Leave by Music/PermanentMe
-->See my friends
-->Run in circles
-->Watching cars pass on the street

-->Missing daylight
-->Oh the night light
-->Casting shadows of defeat

-->You got me looking out the shades
-->Waiting up for you
-->How much longer should I wait?

-->So...
-->Until you leave
-->My eyes will turn red for a minute
-->And I can't breathe when she goes

-->She kills me nightly
-->On my way home
-->I see the moon begin to fall
-->The world it turns now
-->Leaves me breathless
-->Sing the saddest song of all

* There is an English version and French version of ''O Canada'', and often the singer will switch between the two if singing at a public event. Problem: the two versions mean very different things. Whether it's this trope or WordPureeLyrics depends on whether or not you speak ''both'' English and French.

* Music/RedHotChiliPeppers vocalist Anthony Kiedis does this a lot. The crowner is probably the epic long poem at the end of "Death of a Martian" off of ''Music/StadiumArcadium'', where each line individually makes sense, but strong together sounds like gibberish:
--> ''She's got a sword in case\\
No, this is not her lord in case\\
The one who can't afford to face\\
Her image is restored to grace''
