Which albums have your favorite opening lines? As in, which ones get the album started off right and set the stage for the whole expericene?

Mine are:

The Wonder Years - "Moved all my shit into my parent's basement and out of our old apartment"

This Glass Embrace - "It was Winter today when I woke up"

Underoath - "So let's not even try..."

Taking Back Sunday - "So sick, so sick of being tired..."

The Stiletto Formal - "I could save us all, or I could lead you home, or I could wait and then asphyxiate your every thought and word."

Straylight Run - "Taken in context, it's not a bad thing..."

Manchester Orchestra - "I could've sworn that I saw you knee bent on the bedside..."

Rise Against - "If we're the flagship of peace and prosperity, we're taking on water and about to fucking sink!"

The Mars Volta - "Clipside of the pinkeye flight. I'm not the percent you think survives."

Emery - "Time runs out!"

There's plenty more...but I figured I'd just throw ten lines out there. What are your favorite album openers?

"I did this to myself, the summer air burning in my lungs, one more glance till i come undone, let's stop this rising sun."

Edit: There's a lot more lines I like but I can't think of them right now.

Do you belong to a song?
Does it drag you along by the tongue at the top of your lungs?

I'd rather beg your forgiveness than solicit permission. I'd rather know that it broke your heart than doubt that it will.

My father was a paper plane,
My mother was a wind swept tree,
My little brother's nearly twice my age
He taught me how to meditate, I taught him how to read.
I grew up with a book in my bag,
I got these dark circles before I turned ten.
Heard my mother with her friends worry it was something she did
To get such a serious kid
