My eyelids descended and I wandered off.

“Run to the Hills” - Iron Maiden.

I cheated with the help of a certain search engine, forgive me . Typed in 'Native American lyrics in rock songs' and it was one of the top songs in the list.

Okay let's have a new set. I should point out, for clarity's sake, these are ALL opening lines from the songs.

Song 1

I observe an incorrect satellite ascending
I foresee peril approaching
I note fissures in the ground and electrical discharge in the sky
I foretell a difficult period ahead from this morning.
Refrain from visiting when it gets dark
It's likely to kill you
An evil planet ascends.

Answered: "Bad Moon Rising" by Creedence Clearwater Revival

Song 2

Urban ladies apparently discover rapidly the method of effecting entrance by means of curving the lips
A wealthy, aged husband and she will have no need to care
She will wear lace and be the belle of the ball
As darkness falls a large residence seems too empty
I suppose each mode of shelter costs something
And it causes her pain inside to consider that her affection is but afforded to a man whose palms are not warm.
And therefore she advises him she must leave until the early morning
To provide succour to a companion who is depressed
He, however, is cognisant of her destination as she departs:
She goes towards the area of the city where they do not play fair.

Answered: "Lyin' Eyes" by The Eagles

Song 3

Not awake when I penned this, pardon me if it should wander
But when I arose I was sure the Rapture had arrived.
The firmament was a mixture of blue and red, crowds rushing here and there
Attempting to evade the devastation, however I was not concerned.

Answered: "1999" by Prince

Song 4

Rouse yourself, Margaret! I believe I must speak with you.
For it is after August and I ought to be returning to class.
I am aware I make you laugh, however I believe you are manipulating me
Oh Margaret! I attempted the best I could.
You enticed me from my domicile as you preferred to have company
You took, without permission, the organ which keeps me alive, and it's this which really upsets me.

Answered: "Maggie May" by Rod Stewart

Song 5

I say, younger sibling! What has transpired?
I say, younger sibling! Identify that person which is the sole party.
I say, younger sibling! What has transpired?
I say, younger sibling! Identify that person which is the sole party.
I say, younger sibling!
Double-barrelled weapon!
It's a pleasant day to recommence.
It's a pleasant day for a pure marriage.

Answered: "White Wedding" by Billy Idol

Song 6

I recall for all my existence very cold precipitation
Male shades, a countenance at the pane, sobbing after dark
Dark becomes light and then morning, merely a separate span of 24 hours
Joyous crowds traverse my path
Staring in their gaze I observe something remembered
And fail to understand how pleasant things were with you.

Answered: "Mandy" by Barry Manilow

The very last line made me realize: She's goin' to the cheatin' side of town.
