We can live beside the ocean,
Leave the fire behind.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Father Of Mine"
The Lyrics:
I remember blue skies walking the block
Why:
Dangling participle! Do blue skies physically walk? No. It should be "I remember seeing blue skies WHILE I WAS walking the block", but that definitely would not fit the meter. This lyric is Bad Grammar and Literally Impossible at the same time.
