    The Collector: I am the pig! I am the swarm!

    Actual lyrics: I am the plague! I am the swarm!

    @BenAkenobi - Thanks again for pointing that out for me. That was funny, and a little bit embarrassing, might I add.

    A couple days ago I was listening to "Vessel" and it occurred to me that a person could mishear "my God, can it go any faster?" as "my car, can it go any faster?" Or it could sound like "my God, can I cum any faster?" which is hilarious when you think about the next line, which is "my God, I don't think I can last here."

    "Me I'm Not"

    This song always makes me laugh because I can't hear anything but Trent asking the driver to make a stop to buy some candy. The whole song supports this and is a clear statement about his inner fight with his candy addiction:

    well it's happening
    never planned on this
    you've got something I need
    kind of dangerous
    and I'm losing control
    I'm not used to this
    what you want from me
    I'm not used to this

    I can't shut it off
    this thing I've begun
    and it's hard to tell
    just where it's coming from
    and it's hard to see
    what I'm capable of
    and it's hard to believe
    just, what I've become

    hey, candy stop?
    me, I'm not
    hey, candy stop?
    me, I'm not
    hey, candy stop?
    me, I'm not
    hey, candy stop?
    me, I'm not

    I can swallow it down
    keep it all inside
    I define myself
    by how well I hide
    I feel it coming apart
    well, at least I tried

    I can win this war
    by knowing not to fight
    if I take it all back
    someway, somehow
    if I knew back then
    what I know right now

    hey, candy stop?
    me, I'm not
    hey, candy stop?
    me, I'm not
    hey, candy stop?
    me, I'm not
    hey, candy stop?
    me, I'm not

    On just about every live version of The Hand That Feeds I've heard I swear Trent sounds like he's singing "Will you bite the ham​ that feeds you"

    Mr Self Destruct

    Actual: "You let me do this to you. You let me do this to you."

    What I keep hearing: "You made me do this to you. You made me do this to you."

    Closer

    Actual: "Help me become somebody else!"

    What I keep hearing: "Help me think I'm somebody else!"

    I Would For You

    Actual: "See I keep lying to myself!"

    What I keep hearing: "See I could die into myself!"

    Yeah, I've also noticed that I'm not alone there, especially with the misheard lyrics for Closer and I Would For You.

    A few weeks ago in the car my daughter asked me to put the song 'came back home Ted' on, took me ages to realise what it was and now that's all I hear when it's on

    Down In It:

    Way before properly getting into NIN, I misheard "I was up above it" as "House of the bullet" after hearing it on the radio.

    Even though I know the correct words to this one, I always hear it as this, too. And it's horrible because I love to run to this song, but every time it comes up in my playlist I usually skip over it, because if I do get to the chorus I end up busting out laughing mid-run. It gets me every. single. time.

    Down in It. My friend always thought "I was up above it" was "hours of a bullet".

    After 20 or so years I'm still not hearing "In this world full of you" but "In this world for you". The "correct" version doesn't even make as much sense as "for you".

    Considering so much of Broken deals with conformity, comparing society to a machine and everyone being a drone, I've always taken "world full of you" to imply that everyone is the same, just copies of copies of copies.

    Oh and also if you still view it as being about a singular person, then it makes sense if you remember the line on SICNH, "Everywhere I look you're all I see," with everything serving as a reminder as one person, hence a "world full of you." While I think the conformity version fits Broken best, either is totally likely.

    After reading this thread, I can't unhear some of these misheward lyrics lol. l have always heard "I am going to call you" or "I am going to cull you" in Big Man with A Gun.
