Misheard Lyrics:

"Adolescent Sex"
Misheard Lyrics:
Well you're out on the street
With your lover's infections
Count impossibilities by lamination
And your body still damp
From your one-room apartment
And your heartache reminds me
Love's not in any doubt
You submerge again, emerge again
Just get out the strain!
Original Lyrics:
When you're out on the street
With your lover's infections
Counting possibilities by elimination
And your body's still damp
From your one room apartment
And your heartache remains then
Love's not the antidote
You submerge again, emerge again
Just get on the street!

Well they say down South,

Well they say down South,
the sun won't set on my hometown.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Just when I think I'm winning
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
The ghosts of my life blow harder than the wind
Why They're Nonsensical:
I can safely say that I have yet to be prevented from doing anything by a ghost blowing me.
