That fits in with my attraction/repulsion thread quite nicely. Those songs where you reject all social convention contain some of the most innovative lyrics.
Beat it for what I'm not sure, but for expressing a particular desire or describing something there are some that are at least as apt. Guy Clark has some outstanding couplets. Like this one from The Randall Knife:
"It almost took his thumb when he mistook it for a tool.
No, the blade was meant for darker things and you could not bend the rules."
Or this from, I think Paul Overstreet wrote it, in Too Gone Too Long when it comes to expressing a lack of desire to see someone:
"You came a long way going the wrong way.
Don't even set your suitcase down."
