Story about this misheard lyric by: Eva

I hear a different version of this line from everyone I ask. My friend says it sounds like "That's what they do to you!" The lyrics in general seem somewhat nonsensical, though.

There are additional Deftones misheard stories available.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Change (In the House of Flies)"
The Funny Lyrics:
I watched you change.
Why They're Funny:
I know it's supposed to be about watching someone's personality change like they're a different person or something, but it sounds kind of like he's a peeping tom watching a woman get changed.
Submitted by: wadded beef
"Change (In The House Of Flies)"
The Funny Lyrics:
I watched you change into a fly
Why They're Funny:
for some reason, whenever i hear or think about this lyric, i think of a giant fly wearing a suit and tie, holding a briefcase. don't ask why.
Submitted by: some girl

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Minus Blindfold"
The Dated Lyrics:
Grab my blue backpack, my walkman, grip my bicycle.
Why They're Dated:
Walkman's have just recently been retired from sales, and most people carry around MP3 players nowadays.
Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe
"Engine No. 9"
The Dated Lyrics:
Do you dig many in '93 been makin' them fools
Why They're Dated:
This was actually dated when the song came out! Even though Chino presumably wrote it in 1993 he could have changed it to '95 because it didn't have to fit into any rhyming scheme.
