Dont ask me why, ive always heard  "but we let it ran down in our hands" (red tide) as veins instead of hands
Instead of "in quest of Dionysus" i used to hear "in search for Dionysus"

I'm not sure that counts as misheard.  I think he really does say it like that.  ;)

There's already a few threads like this. They seem to pop up every couple years :huh:

I did a search and didn't see one come up,  otherwise I would have just bumped the thread.

Did you do the search in the "Rush" section or just in this one?

I have misheard lyrics in Working Man, too.

I used to hear:

I got no time for idiots,
I'm workin' all the time.


:P :blush:

That should be my theme song.

For Jacob's ladder I always hear:

'the clowns prepare for battle' instead of 'the clouds prepare for battle'.

The image of a group of clowns preparing for battle makes me chuckle though :lol:

"To taste on you the fruits of life."

I believe that's known as sploshing.

The one that takes the cake for me, though, because I literally just found out about a year and a half ago what it actually is...from Jacob's Ladder:

Actual: Thunderheads are rumbling in a distant overture

I heard: Thunderheads are rumbling in a distant, overt shore


I could never figure out how a shore could be overt. (Or, conversely, covert, for that matter).

The end of BODY ELECTRIC:
Goes:
It replays each of the days
A hundred years of routines
Bows its head and prays
To the mother of all machines...

I HEAR:
It replays each of the days
A hundred years of POUTINE
Bows its head and prays
To the mother of all THE CHEESE...
Mother of all THE CHEESE...

This one is not actually what I miss heard because I do know he lyrics to the song, but it sounds like a Geddy live moment to add to the "I'm Geddy Lee and I will sing any damned way I want to" On Diferent Stages Nobody's Hero I swear when he sings the the begining of the verse But she's nobody's hero,
I swear he's saying Butt Cheese! Ewwww why would I hear that :wtf: :facepalm: :LMAO:

I admit the very first time I heard the song AFTK, I thought he said:

Scoffing at the wife.

:P
