Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Killswitch Engage

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Alive or Just Breathing album at
Killswitch Engage's, "Life To Lifeless"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Life to lifeless to Eternity
Life to lifeless, recycle repeats.
The Real Lyrics:
Life to lifeless to Eternity
Life to lifeless, the cycle repeats.
The Story: So we all know the slogans about recycling, I figure. Well, the first time I heard the song, it sounded like the words were 'recycle repeat'. At first that sounds a little odd, yet not. Then after I went to look the lyrics up, I found out. Then I just felt like an idiot. - Submitted by: urdarlindead
