i used to think it was "it takes a crowd to cry" and not "crime to cry"

I thought it might be "clown." I know it's "crowd" though.

ah about not misheard by me but elsewhere, there's this clip from the spiderman thing: rise above. on some live show, and there's lyrics in the clip
where bono sings: i miss you in everything
the lyrics read: 'i miss you and everything'

though it could be read in a different manner, it always reads very 'ladida' to me. spoils it completely, always try to avert my eyes when that line comes on.

as i try to stop it just in time to prevent me seeing some spidermanlikefigure dropping down from the ceiling. do have a weakness for that song though, wish there was a better clip.

Where are the rocks. Should be where the rocks are.

Get on your boots. Should be Get your boots on. Get on your boots means stand on top of them.

I just realized I read this wrong. So it is "where are the rocks." Back to hating that line now.

Yeah. It should be "Put on your boots." But I don't mind that one as much as "where are the rocks"

Also, there's some words/mumbling in Rise Above 1 I can't quite make out.
Between "And are there any real answers anyway?" and  "Your silence in a crowded room".

In Bullet the Blue Sky, I've always thought he says "So this guy comes up to me."
Recently I was reading lyrics, and I was shocked to read "Suit and tie comes up to me."

Did he change it recently when it's sung live, or I am really crazy?
