Aren't these correct?

They can't be. No self-respecting songwriter would write that line.

The same one who did survived and you're amongst the fittest

Sophie
Sooopppphie

Once you were in my Rearviewmirroooorrrreerrr


I also thought it was Sophie for a while; or at least, I had no idea it was 'Saw things', and Sophie was among my best guesses.


Wait... Are you my ex-girlfriend?

There was a time when I sang "Dissident" in my mind and deliberately replaced the chorus line with "ef u see kay (FUCK)... Ef u see kay is here..." Made no sense but felt better than the original :lol:

Right around the corner could be fingering ourselves.

Oh yeah I still don't know the lyrics to that part of Rearviewmirror. I always hear "Sword feeeeels" which makes no sense. But that's what i hear.

I think it's more fun to not look up the lyrics for some reason. I like trying to guess what Eddie Vedder's saying especially on Yellow Ledbetter. I'm still convinced he sings about a wizard at some point.

Everyone here just wondered why I just laughed. I think I covered it well by telling them I was looking at midget porn. *Phew*
