Clever song lyric of the day

OK, this is not something I do (or plan to start doing) every day, but well, just ignore that title and read on.

I’m listening to one of my favorite songs (“Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect”) by one of my favorite bands (The Decemberists) and I had to marvel once again at one of my favorite “clever” lyrics among Colin Meloy’s vast body of clever lyrics:

But the angles and the corners
Even though my work is unparalleled
They never seemed to meet

I love the double meaning of the word “unparalleled” here. Brilliant.
