Could also be that they aren't supposed to be covered up, but that doesn't go along with the rest of the text unless he's saying it's pointless to try.

 

But since the first verse is talking about a phoney, maybe he's talking about the scars as a cry for attention. You know, like advertisement. Honestly I hadn't looked at the lyrics before and now I'm sitting here wondering wtf he's trying to say :LOL: I mean it's a really grim song if it's about self harm.

 

EDIT: Okay after reading the wiki and considering the working title I guess yeah, self-harm is kinda confirmed.

Never read into the lyrics for screenager much.Though the self harm subject makes sense now that I think of it

 

also I can never unhear.

"And I tend to lose control" instead of "Last chance to lose control" in Hysteria.

listening to "Animals" over and over, and I was so convinced "amortise, downsize, neon" isn't a real lyric. and so I was right.

 

also: never thought they'd have "amortise" in that song as I'd always not hear it right either, idk how

I once saw a comment in youtube of someone mishearing 'Sense of elation' in TIRO as 'Since ovulation' and can now never hear it as the original again. The hilarious part is that the misheard version actually(kinda) makes sense, for once.

Almost forgot

 

"Just wanna spoil it" instead of "Destroy the spineless"

 

Yeah. It always sounded like "Just wait to spoil it" to me. That's still how I sing along to it.

On MuseWiki it does oddly mention that "since ovulation" was a misprint in some copies of the Absolution lyrics booklet.

 

Really? Never noticed it does that in there before. I guess I never really misheard it because I tend to read those lyric booklets and on my piece it was printed correctly :D

It mentioned some copies also had Hysteria and Interlude printed the wrong way around and other misprints.

 

Wonder if any copies with these errors are still around.

My CD/DVD edition (with the different cover) has Hysteria and Interlude the wrong way round on the back cover, although I think that was the norm for that specific release

Oh I have a copy of Abso with that misprint, it's the AU/NZ version :D

Yeah I found an article on NME dated from then saying it was mainly those versions.

Must also be there too.

 

Wonder how an interlude going from Hysteria into Blackout would sound.

Shit, checked the copy, it's there :D

 

And I mean, I tried that order with simply making a playlist... it's goofy as hell, but I expected it to be even worse than what it was :D

Well, if you extend Interlude final note and make it crossfade with Blackout strings in the beginning, I think it works incredibly well. One of the main reasons is that the final note corresponds to Blackout key, which is Amaj.

While on topic of New Born:

 

"You're swelling up, you're inseparable..." instead of "unstoppable"
