Jesus Jones', "International Bright Young Thing"
Misheard Lyrics:
Has ghosts dragons wishes while,
Sun is making wishes while,
I gaze out there somewhere,
Anchors on your hair
Original Lyrics:
Atsuko's dropping dishes while,
Sam is making wishes while,
Aki's up there somewhere,
Anca's on the air
These lyrics refer to various women whom the band members knew, apparently in reference to some inside jokes or hijinks...basically the intent is to perplex anyone who dares to listen too closely.
