  • Misheard Hawkwind Lyrics

    I think there's a few conversations doing the rounds on this, but I was listening to "Robot" again, and can STILL hear "Automated to Monkey Lust".

    "Cast iron city, keeps us in
    Glass eyes of pity, weep with sin..."
    Thick as wind-blown leaves innumerable, since 1985

      Prior to PXR5 being released, I was convinced they had a song in their live set called 'Purple Sands of Mars'. Despite Calvert cutting up the Stars & Stripes on stage, I never made the connection.

        'Use you wheels...' seems to be one that crops up for some people.

        Personally, I always hear the 'r'.
        You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

            "I'm so p*ssed and I'm so cold, I've lived too long and I'm too old" (Treadmill)

            ....and from the same song....

            "Mechanics battle for the ages, while we are leafing through the pages"
            What part of 'Get out of town, Freak' don't you understand?

                Shuffles over to Google.....

                "I'm so distant and so cold
                I've lived too long and I'm so old
                .....

                I can't expound before the ages
                While we are leafing through the pages"


                I think 'mechanics' sounds better meself!

                    A man's what?

                    Many years ago I was playing 'Ten Seconds of Forever' and my mum said:
                    'What did he say? A man's what?' 'No Mum,' I explained, 'he said, 'The Jewelled forests of Venus.'
