until yesterday i'd never understood what he says in Elevation, the "I and I in the sky" line. I never realized he was saying that. I thought It was "higher nigh, in the sky!" not that that makes any sense but neither does "I and I"

I think "I and I in the sky" is a reference to Jah.

My girlfriend still thinks Bono's saying "You put me on Prozac, try to rewind" on NLOTH the track.

Jah? you mean God?

for the longest time, that is, up until a few years ago, i didn't know what he said in Stuck, the "I wasn't jumping... for me it was a fall" line. I tend to just ignore the lyric if i can't understand what he said, then i look it up if i can remember to check.

I could never for the life of me hear "But without you it's no use" in When I Look At The World. I thought it was "Pull it up, but it's no use." Every time I looked it up, I would have a revelation and then forget it later.

I could never hear "Intransigence is all around" in Staring At The Sun either. It sounded like "Dreams are juices all around." :P

i hear the intran- word, but i have NO CLUE what that means. it's weird i may as well be hearing the dreams are juices line instead.

HAHA iodine in the sky! makes more sense than "higher nigh in the sky!" which is what it thought it was.

Heartland's Heaven's day i thought it was heaven's gate.

Mofo - meh. i don't think i'll ever NOT hear the "red dress" line. i can't "hear" that it's "been around back" etc.

"Refusing to moderate a position, especially an extreme position; uncompromising." Never knew the word either until I looked up the lyrics.

I thought it was "heaven's gate" too... :(

I always heard, "I'm afraid of suits and ties" in Staring at the Sun. It made sense to me within the context of the rest of that verse.

Gone - For years I thought  the lyrics "What you thought was freedom is just greed" was actually "What you thought was freedom was just free".  ???

I just remembered either reading somewhere or someone telling me they thought it was "I've peed in every black hole" from MOS.
