These lyrics from The Cure's Doing the Unstuck stand out to me. The imagery involved with setting things on fire always gets to me. I'm not sure why. The fact that the flow matches that of any Dr Seuss story only adds to my interest.

“kick out the gloom
kick out the blues
tear out the pages with all the bad news
pull down the mirrors and pull down the walls
tear up the stairs and tear up the floors
oh just burn down the house!
burn down the street!
turn everything red and the dream is complete
with the sound of your world
going up in the fire
it's a perfect day to throw back your head
and kiss it all goodbye!”
