PiL "Careering":

A face is raining
Across the border
The pride of history
The same as murder

Is this living?
He’s been careering

Shane MacGowan (Pogues) "USA":

I gambled in two graveyards
I won against the odds
With the saints and with the saviors
With the maggots and the gods
I cursed the things they showed me
I’d never see again
And the howling of the wind at night
I wrote upon the rain

Actually, pretty much every lyric MacGowan has written is a killer.
