Like the title says, what songs have you misheard lyrics that, after learning the real lyrics, you thought were better? My example is Buried a Lie, by Sense Fail. In the first verse and the chorus, I heard:

Rest in peace girl, your death is such a shame;
the paper said a bullet got in your way.
But I smell foul play, possible poisoning;
I had to bring you in for questioning
I went to your grave, dug up your body;
brought it to my house, well you look.......... So life-like!

Doctor Brain,
will operate today
Incisions must be made;
you could help solve this case
For me...

It actually goes:

Rest in peace girl, your death is such a shame;
the paper said a bullet got in your way.
But I smell foul play, possible poisoning;
I had to bring you in for questioning
I went to your grave, dug up your body;
brought it to my house, where you lay....... so let's play

docter, babe;
We'll operate today
Incisions must be made
You could help solve this case
For me...


So, what are your examples?

I like Behemoth's songs...when I can't understand the lyrics. I mean, they're not BAD, but it sounds better as an un-discernible growl

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Practically every Nirvana song, most of Pearl Jam's songs, and Danzig's songs.

Actual lyrics:

on my deathbed i will pray
to the gods and the angels
like a pagan to anyone
who will take me to heaven

on my deathbed i will pray
to the gods and the angels
like a paid gun to anyone
who will take me to heaven

Meshuggah - Dehumanization

Actual Lyrics -

A new level reached, where the absence of air lets me breathe
I'm inverted electrical impulses. A malfunctioning death-code incomplete
All things before me, at first unliving glimpse undeciphered
Its semantics rid of logic. Nothing is all. All is contradiction

Grinding, churning - the sweetest ever noises
Decode me into their non-communication
A soundtrack to my failure, one syllable, one vowel

Deciphered Lyrics -


Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..........

"Lover, you should've come over" - Jeff Buckley

"Actual":
Sometimes a man gets carried away,
When he feels like he should be having his fun
And much too blind to see the damage he's done
Sometimes a man must awake to find that, really,
He has no-one...

What I think it says:
Sometimes a man gets carried away,
When he feels like she'll be having his fun
And much too blind to see the damage he's done
Sometimes a man must awake to find that, really,
He has no-one...

My one is better and makes more sense to me.

Sometimes I think it says "to find a filly that has no-one..."

Even though "Dark Chest of Wonders" by nighwish is incredible anyways, I thought the first line of the verse was saying foot Nazis.

I always used to mishear one line from cries in vain - bullet for my valentine

actual lyrics:
But nothing seems to quench the thirst you keep on craving

But nothing seems to quench the thirst, you can't pour gravy.

In Kalmah's "Wings of Blackening", where the lyrics go "Demons of sin fly with the wings of blackening", I always hear "Emo so sad, the razor beckoning". Makes me smile every time.

Wow; kind of did a double-take when I saw this thread had been revived.

Anyways, in the Placebo song "Hang on to Your IQ" I always hear "to your IQ" as "do you like you".
