The Misrhymed Lyrics:
With all your high class friends, you think you got it made
The only thing you made was that tanned look on your face....
But now itís sink or swim since your memory fails
Now in Neptuneís kitchen, you will be food for killer whales.
Why They're Misrhymed:
Don't get me wrong, I like this song, but some of the lines, like these ones, stick out like sore thumbs. And they could have fit in some of the other song categories, such as insulting lyrics, but these four lines in particular sound so forced that they're some of the most awkward lines Roland Orzabal ever wrote. As for the first two lines, uh, geez, he tries to rhyme made with face. And even worse, the second line has more syllables than the first making it sound forced as if he didn't have time to think it out more. And now to the last two lines... while he does get two rhyming words (fails and whales) the last line sounds terribly forced. Even if these lines may have the same amount of syllables, it sounds even more poorly paired than the first two.
