R.E.M.'s, "Diminished"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I can see the truth in his statement
Smallpox blanket
No Way
Why They're Nonsensical:
Uh huh. What exactly is a smallpox blanket and how on earth does it fit in with the rest of the song?

R.E.M.'s, "It's The End of the World As We Know It"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
That's great, it starts with an earthquake,
birds and snakes, an aeroplane...
Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
Why They're Nonsensical:
This song is sung very fast with lyrics that don't really make any sense at all. This is the opening line. And, really why would Lenny be afraid?
