Saw the Beeb doing this on twitter & though it might make for a good thread.
What is your favourite opening lyric to a song?

I immediately thought of Valentine's
"The razor bites & the shriek subsides"

But it was a close call with "It doesn't matter if we all die" from One Hundred Years

Nice topic! I would be split between "So messed up, I want you here" and "And yes I believe in what we had."

"I don't believe in an interventionist god.."

Although "It doesn't matter if we all die" cf Pista is a mighty close second.

"You Suffer, but Why?"

(ok, TECHNICALLY speaking that is the whole song lyric, but it also makes it the opening line to the song...)
