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 searched this forum.

Don't know why you only searched this forum?

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...

Bow and pray to me then! Mwahahahaha

"To taste on you the fruits of life."

I believe that's known as sploshing.

What?! You mean he doesn't say that?! :)

I find it strange because English isn't my first language and I can't hear what most people wrote in this thread. I think that Geddy sings really clearly and most of the time I can figure the lyrics by ear. I'm not able to do that with many other bands I listen to.

I like to think of it as that I have such a creative mind that I can hear other things in there. :)

I really think they do this to us on purpose. The same words can sound so different by so many factors. The music, tempo and the other words that preceded or follow give our minds room to mold and shape what we want to hear.
Perfect example Cygnus X-1 Book II Prelude,
When our weary world was young
The struggle of the ancients first began. Now see the word young sets up your mind to subconsiously look for a match so it is very easy to extrapolate,
When our weary world was young
That struggle of the ancients first begun. I have sung this line silently and out loud (my apologies to ever may have actually heard me sing out loud) and both fit very nicely and sound like it was the word meant to be in that slot but the correct word is of course began. There are many other examples of this type of musical word play too many to be random, impo. So to me it truely shows how much thought is put into what is produced.

Lock and Key:

"I don't want to face the killer instinct, face it in you or me"

What I initially heard (and apparently someone else on Facebook, so I don't feel so bad!):
"I don't want to face the killer instinct, face it in New Orleans".

In Natural Science I used to hear "In their own image their world is fascist"  (actual lyrics "In their own image their world is fashioned")

and then "Art as expression not as what it contains" (actual lyrics "Art as expression not as market campaigns").
