* Music/TomWaits' "Lullaby" from ''Music/BloodMoney'', particularly this line: "Nothing's ever yours to keep." In context of the song, it's undoubtedly a [[TearJerker tearjerker]]; the song's supposed to be a [[IronicNurseryRhyme disconcerting lullaby]] telling a child that [[spoiler: their father is gone and very unlikely to come back]]. But take that line out of context and apply it to your own life. Think about it. Everything you consider to be 'yours' -- your glasses, your room, your dog, your friends, your mother, your father, your memories, your personality -- is going to be taken away from you. ''And there is nothing you can do to stop it from happening.''
