"Layin' It On The Line", Favorite Lines from Eighties Songs, Songs Beginning with O

The purpose of this page is really pretty simple, I'm just looking for people's favorite song lyrics, preferably 4 lines or less from a song. No, I won't list entire songs or mail people song lyrics (don't even ask, I won't respond). I'd like to list entire song lyrics to everyone's favorite songs, but that's a blatent copywrite violation, and I don't need any nasty letters in the mail, but a few lines from a song should be considered fair use. So feel free to let us all know what your favorite lines from an eighties song is.

"Orgasmatron" by Motorhead
I am the One, Orgasmatron, the outstretched grasping hand,
My image is of agony, my servants rape the land.

Two thousand years of misery and torture in my name.
Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law,
My name is called Religion. Sadistic, sacred whore!

Out of blue comes green

Under the stars up above I'll build you another day
Close your eyes, I'll be home before it's light
And all the tears you cry will dry in the dead of the night
