I thought it was "Fuck the fucking barrel" too. And in extraordinary girl i thought it was "Like a pig left down the drain" instead of "Pet left in the rain". Woops

i thought that in Boulevard Of Broken Dreams it said 'But it's only me and i walk alone'
but it don't, it says 'but it's HOME TO me and i walk alone'


I made that same mistake too.


It doesn't say "It's only me" ?????

Wow. And to think I've had that CD forever. lol


God I've been singing that wrong for years Faith


Omg. Me too.
It really does sound like it though. Maybe they should change it to that. I mean, it fits in better because the other lyrics are "I Walk Alone".

God, Billie. Tut,tut,tut. You ask him to write a song...and he confuses his fans for years to come.

Lol, okay... Warning...

'Caution, police line, you better not cross'

I thought it said 'Cross eyed bullies like you'd better not cross'

To this day, I wonder how I heard that.

I decided to look up a few lyrics and see what I'd been singing wrong and here are a few (too many to list them all)
WHEN I COME AROUND
real: I'm just roaming for the moment sleazin' my back yard so don't get
me: I'm just roaming for the moment seems I've gone of on a tangent
ST JIMMY
real: suicide commando that your momma talked about
me: sounds like that motto that your momma talked about
WARNING
real: may impair your abilty to operate machinary
me: may repair your ability to operate the shitary (yer I did think it was strange)
HAUSHINKA
real: did she know? did she know?
me: pachino! pachino! (i thought pachino was a type of coffee or something)
HOMECOMING
real: its my own private suicide
me: its my own private cinema inside
WHATSERNAME
real: the regrets are useless in my mind
me: the rain clouds are useless in my mind
LONGVIEW
real: Bite my lip and close my eyes
me: Bang my lip and close my eyes

There are more like I said and probably more that I dont even know I'm singing wrong!

This is how I hear Platypus:

Your eyes, they fall
Shot down against the wall
What sanaprast will sack it back onto you [o_O]
It's time to quit cuz you ain't worth a shit
I have my shoes and a piss on the ground
No one loves you and you know it
Don't pretend that you enjoy it again
Cuz now I wouldn't lie or tell you all the things you wanna hear
Cuz I hate you
I have a stick
Shot down a cancer stick
I got a tumor and a radiation high
Shithead, buttfuck and now your time is up
Admit the pleasure doesn't know it all the time
[chorus and "dickhead fuckface" thing, which I have right]
When I call you
I wanna stangle you
And watch your eyes bulge up out of your skull
When you go down, do backsteps in the ground
I stand behind you and I piss on a tree
[chorus]

.....Yeeeahh...I have issues with that song. And with "Strangeland," it just sounds like random gibberish....

When I first listened to "Dry Ice"...well, you know the part that goes, "Come ease the pain that's in my heart"?
Well, I thought it said, "DON'T ease the pain that's in my heart"! I was thinkin', "Okay, Billie, I won't, leave me alone!"

But then I learned the real lyrics, and I was like, "Oh, so that's what he meant"...

idk if this counts or if someone posted this already because Im too lazy to read 39 pages.
"I went to a whore
HE said my life my life's a bore
So quit my whining 'cause it's bringing HER door."

Not to mention the part that went, "Will I understand if she wants to be my friend?". Unfortunately, I thought it meant, "Well I'll understand if she's sleeping in my bed"! I was like Confused, and then Shocked, but, finally, I looked up the lyrics and was then like Mr. Green.

I love emoticons!

You guys make me feel better about myself. Hehe Very Happy

I still don't know the lyrics to Platypus... I've been trying to figure it out for like two years. I do like My Temper Snaps' interpretation though. It made me laugh... "buttfuck."
WØØt!
