Genesis', "Domino"
The Lyrics:
Take a look at the beautiful river of blood.
The liquid surrounds me
I fight to rise from this river of hell
I stare round about me
Children are swimming and playing with boats
Their features are changing
Their bodies dissolve and I am alone.
Most Genesis songs don't go on about rivers of blood and dissolving children.

Genesis', "Just a Job to Do"
The Lyrics:
Keep running, keep running; city to city
Even if you're innocent
You can cause too much embarrassment
And though your heart is breaking
And you know there's no mistaking
For you feel your life line breaking
Can feel your hands are shaking
No one answers the telephone
You can never ever go home alone
And though your heart is breaking
And you know there's no mistaking
The footsteps close behind (*** synthesizer blasts ***)
You keep running and never afford to settle anywhere because you know too much, you've seen too much and dead birds don't sing. You call for help and there's nobody answering. The assassin sees you now, he draws a bead on you. Here he comes! The harder you run, the harder you fall.
