Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"At My Funeral"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Well I can't be sure where I'm headed after death, To Heaven, Hell, or yon to that great vast
But if I can I would ike to meet my Maker
There's one or two things I'd sure like to ask.
Why They're Misrhymed:
Brad Roberts may be a lyrical genius, but that doesn't even come close to rhyming! (and kinda ironic for a confirmed atheist to be pondering such things.)

Scary Song Lyrics:

"Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm"
The Lyrics:
they lurched and shook all over the church floor
he couldn't quite explain it
they had always just gone there
Why:
okay well the whole song actually scared me to a point where I even had nightmares about it and I was thirteen when this song was hot and always on the radio airwaves (pretty pathetic huh? a 13 year old having nightmares because of a song) and these lyrics always terrified me to no end for some reason oh and also Brad Roberts' voice didn't help at all to calm me down
