"...and to love I'd rhapsodize" at the end of 'Window in the Skies' doesn't ruin the song quite, but it's such a clumsy line.

"I know a girl who's like the sea, I watch her changing every day for me" from "No Line On The Horizon"

"I'm ready for the push" from "Zoo Station"

"You just can't get enough of that lovey-dovey stuff" from "Discotheque"

Wow, I seem to have something against album openers.

"There's an insect in your ear" from "Staring At The Sun"

"ATM Machine" from "Moment Of Surrender"

The entire lyrics of Miami, Wild Honey, Crashed Car, Some Days, TPB, GOYB, and Crazy Tonight.

As for redundancy factor...

"I'm wide awake, I'm not sleeping" Bad

"Lights go down, it's dark" Vertigo

"I'm alive, I'm being born" All Because Of You

One of my friends misheard that last one as "I'm a line, I'm being drawn", which is equally redundant.

Too trite:

And a heart that is broken is a heart that is open.

"ATM machine" from Unknown Caller. The M already stands for machine.
"Stop Helping God across the road like a little old lady" from Stand Up Comedy.
