I did a quick forum search and didn't get any results for a thread of this nature, so I figured I'd start one. If I'm an idiot and this already exists, feel free to laugh and point fingers at me while the tears of embarrassment streak down my face.

So I like to (poorly) sing along with Casey from time to time while listening to TDH, but occasionally find myself at a loss as to what is actually being said. I have a couple of examples to get the train rolling, so to speak.

In 1878, I always thought the chorus was "Fell in another hole / for the night, for the night / loss of control / fall in love, fall in love" My reasoning was that Ms. Terri desperately needed money, and was forced to spend a night with some gentleman caller despite her abandoning of the job at The Dime. In addition, she found herself falling in love with her new child in spite of her hesitation to do so (for a variety of reasons, being in constant danger probably pretty high on the list).

On a lighter note, I thought the chain gang bit before Oracles said "Beggin' my condom make the wheels go round" for the longest time, and had to look it up to figure out what it actually was.

So what about you guys? Any lines you heard wrong on the Acts, TCS, Migrant, etc.?

"Subjective lyrics" thread here for ya.
I have always been 100% sure the first lines of In Cauda Venenmenemenum said: "awoken with the nerds to own and occupy". Not kidding. I still hear those words whenever I listen to the song.
Also, you asked for it:

please be nice

In Lake and the River..."In the Hands of Goats, we're never responsible!" I knew it didn't say that but heard it one day as that and now it's the only way I hear it ha

I misheard "Suffering through the common sense." as "Suffering through the Comic Sans" then found out when my sister got into TDH that she thought the exact same thing. It totally made resonated since I'm a graphic designer and Comic Sans makes me feel nauseous...

My friends and I sometimes cover His Hand Matched his Tongue. We like to start the second verse off with "The smeeeellll ooffff pooop."

We weren't mishearing anything, we're just a bunch of 20-something year old children. So yeah. It's just so beautiful that way.

But on the topic of that song, I always thought the 2nd verse lyrics were "The smell of smoke. The evening sky was bruised." I guess the last word there should be proof. I still sing it as bruised, because I think that's a cool way to describe smoke in the sky.

Also, screw comic sans.

I hear it and sing it the same way. Always have

Not really TDH but when I used to listen to The Receiving End of Sirens, I always did so when I played World of Warcraft. For some reason, the lyrics always sounded like they were associated with the game.. example from the Rival Cycle: "Alongside all hearts as they finish with backdrop cities" I heard, "As they finish with Blackrock Cities" and This Armistice "We're all puppets, were all marionettes" For some reason, I would hear "We're all flight paths" ........ : ( pretty dumb I know!!!

The Pimp and the Priest: "since we made him pasta." I can never hear anything else, even after looking up the lyrics.

The Procession. I hear "O the Scientist, I think he likes this" instead of "helpless hiding tongues, bathed in revulsion." Every. Time.

I think Razia's Shadow is to blame.

Thread Is Dead, but I'm posting anyway.

I find The Procession to be exceedingly good at tricking you into thinking it's saying some real weird stuff. For example, instead of "She's inanimate", I always hear "She's in anime"; instead of "Helpless hiding tongues", I can't help but hear "Helpless Huntington's" (as in the disease); I hear "Baked in lies" from the combination of "(Bathed in revulsion)" and "Her lies unfinished"; as well as "He learned to count on his own" instead of "Beyond the home, he'd learn to call his own".

I could probably make an entire misheard lyrics video for that song.

Took me a few listens to realize that Mr. Usher is the "main manipulator" and not the "meme manipulator"
