    I'm sure I mentioned this before. I'll also admit that it proves that the word let still makes it far more menacing, intimidating and flat-out scathing.

    It's also far better emphasis on the overall vulnerability, failure and hopelessness unleashed by Mr Self Destruct when let is compared to the word made in this case.

    Mr Self Destruct

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

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

    Was just listening to "The Wretched" tonight and it occurred to me that to the unseasoned listener it could sound like he's saying, "the clouds will fart and the sky cracks open..."

    Actual: "This isn't meant to last."

    What I keep hearing: "This isn't built to last."

    Every Day Is Exactly The Same

    Actual: "Sometimes I think I'm happy here."

    What I keep hearing: "Sometimes I think I'm happier."

    It DOESN'T say "I want your rough ass, baby"?

    I keep hearing "we keep picking while the skin turns black" as "we keep necking while the skin turns black" in She's Gone Away, which is somehow MORE disturbing to me.

    You've got a mishearing inside of a mishearing here. It's actually "We keep licking while the skin turns black."

    Better than me. I always heard that as "We can't recogni[ze] the skin turns black"
