Figures of Speech that should have been strangled at birth

From tonight's EUROVISION song contest. In reverse order of irritation.

The gold of a spider’s web
My love is a sinking ship and mine alone 
I landed my plane on the lightless runway of your soul

Serves you right for watching! ;)
I have banned Eurovision from the house. (Olympics and Jubilee will probably be outlawed too.) Far too many opportunities for hubris.

You're right - I should have known better. I appreciate that things get lost in translation but how could anyone think that runways of your soul - lit or unlit - ever be a good image...
