Matchbox Twenty's, "3 A.M."
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Says the rain's gonna wash away, I believe it
Why They're Nonsensical:
In order for something to wash away, it must be swept up in a stream of water. Therefore it is physically impossible for rain to wash away, as a stream of water would only create more rain.
