* Music/TheBand's "Chest Fever": "'She's stoned' said the Swede / And the Moon Calf agreed / But I'm like a viper in shock / With my eyes in the clock." The lyrics were reportedly made up on the spot as "filler", just picking random rhyming phrases that fit the right number of syllables, with the intent to go back later and rewrite them. But they never did and ended up just keeping the filler as the actual lyrics.

See also SurrealThemeTune, {{Scatting}}, WordSaladTitle, WordSaladPhilosophy, TheWalrusWasPaul, and TrueArtIsIncomprehensible. May overlap with PhraseSaladLyrics. Not to be confused with [[ViewersAreGeniuses Listeners Are Geniuses]], where lyrics are loaded with literary, mythological, or pop-cultural references that are confusing only to non-geniuses.

Added DiffLines:


** "All Guns Blazing" has the ''entire'' song like this. Really, there's nothing you can tell about the subject matter except that [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin there are some guns, and they're all blazing]].
--> Cross-cutting thunder-charge!\\
Blade of destruction!\\
Flame-throwing hurricane!\\
Destroys the cage!\\
Bone-crushing alien!\\
God of salvation!, etc.\\

Added DiffLines:

** "The King of Carrot Flowers, Pt. One" is otherwise entirely normal, but randomly contains the line "In holy rattlesnakes that fell all around your feet."

* Creator/IggyPop's "Lust For Life". Even knowing the lyrics are metaphorically or indirectly about a heroin-addict male prostitute doesn't really help.

Added DiffLines:

* A lot of Music/{{Katatonia}}'s lyrics post-GenreShift:
-->''False\\
The dream is so far\\
Come and take the consequence\\
Few things are as certain\\
Winter state\\
Oppressive wait''

Added DiffLines:

* With the exception of the chorus, the lyrics to Music/PoetsOfTheFall's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biZpPNzt3II Choice Millionaire]]" range from nonsensical to [[PhraseSaladLyrics flirting]] with coherence from line to line as the listener attempts to parse them.
-->Subliminal love for the ones you hate\\
LOL as I abbreviate\\
Alleviate if you can relate to the pink slip\\
Of love unzipped

** Given that the opening lines describe the narrator falling asleep, ''Fireflies'' is probably one of Owl City's ''saner'' songs: the lyrics may be weird, but it's at least clear that they're describing a dream of some sort. Compare that to ''Hello Seattle'', which has no such excuse.

* The anime ''WeissKreuz'' has image songs for all the major characters. "Spiritualized", the song for psychic Schuldig, is like this, likely to illustrate the chaotic feeling of touching unshielded minds.

* "Fireflies" by the musical project OwlCity, featuring such gems like "Cause I'd get a thousand hugs/From ten thousand lightening bugs/As they tried to teach me how to dance." Then again, pretty much anything by Owl City fits this trope.
