First time I saw the video, I thought I heard "overalls" but I figured they must have said "open arms"...turns out I was wrong on both counts.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Tell No Lies"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I know
I know
You could take me for a ride
and I wouldn't even know it
I know
I know I'm vulnerable
But what can I do?
I'm new at this game of trust
Why They're Nonsensical:
If you know that you're already vulnerable then why the hell would you get into a situation where somebody can take advantage of your vulnerability?

"Romantic Traffic"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
She's changing lanes
a bit too slow
someone hits her from behind
and she found new love
in romantic traffic
a place where dreams
turn on and off like the street lights
Why They're Nonsensical:
I placed this in the Upbeat Yet Depressing Lyrics section but it seems appropriate enough for the Nonsensical Lyrics section because it seems to be a nonsensical to see romance getting into a rear end car accident.

Dated Song Lyrics:

"The Rhythm"
The Dated Lyrics:
When the record stops
it's over; it's over
Why They're Dated:
Records may have been the "norm" back in the 80s but by the time CDs came out the records became obsolete.
