I believe in the need for guitars and drums and desperate poultry.

Time Machine, take 2.
Time Machine

I'm-a gonna build myself a time machine
On particle physics and the power of steam
It runs on diesel oil and Donnie Darko daydreams

Pack a pair of socks and a hunting rifle
Change of underwear and some snacks to _______
Scared of going back you know that I'm a _______

Let's go back and let's see
The way things really used to be
Not the way we remember them at all

Packed up ______ in my DeLorean
Like some kind of amateur historian
I'll visit the Renaissance and the Romans and Victorians*

Drinking in Deadwood in the 1880s
Rock and roll and drivethrus in the 1950s
Trying not to change things so the plotlines don't get shitty**

Let's go back and let's see
The way things really used to be
Not the way we remember them

Let's go back and let's see
The way things really used to be
Not the way we remember them at all!

Cause I can't recall
Tell it to me ________
Well if everything were to change completely
Or just a replay of the crucial scenes
When they're passing the window of my time machine

In truth the real reason I built this
Was just to travel back a couple of years to
When we first met before the fights and tears

There were times when you and I first got together
Simple days and simple words like "Forever"
Tripped to _________
Come on you must remember

Let's go back and let's see
The way things really used to be
Before I quietly dismember

All the best things about
You and I before the doubts
Drowned out all of the moments of math and mercy

Come on baby please remember
Please remember
So close. I bet I'm gonna kick myself when someone fills in the blanks for me.

* I'm conflicted, I think the line is either "I'll visit the Renaissance and I'll romance the Victorians" or "I'll visit the Renaissance and the Romans, the Victorians", but I'm probably wrong. Frank definitely says 'the' before 'Victorians'. For the quote above I just put 'and' there.

** I love this lyric

It's definitely the Romans.

Some snacks to trifle

you know I'm forgetful

tell it to me false?

Tripped up on times.

Thanks for clearing up the lyrics I find it very tedious going through whole songs haha, but when I have the lyrics it's easier to hear them! :) The hardest one there is packed up ___ in my delorean, it sounds like he's saying sand or stant or something along those lines, but I can't tell what it is!!!
I'd rather be the one who loves than to be loved and never even know.

Thanks for the input guys.

Take 3. Different perspective/audio from the previous video. I added some corrections but I'm still not certain of some lines which are asterisked below. Blanks mean I'm completely stumped.

Most of that looks right to me. I think possibly "Packed up, sat in my Delorean".

Pretty sure the other line is "this here machine" though.

edit: changed my mind

A new misheard one: I always thought Rivers went "I chase these rivers..." but according to the lyric booklet it's 'trace', not 'chase'. Can anyone confirm this?

Anyway, perhaps one can chase rivers - but how do you "chase" the shoreline? :wink:

Well I thought it was 'chase' for the first line and 'trace' for the second. And I'm not sure if the lyrics on that page are 100% accurate, as if you look in the EKMB lyric book Frank seems to make some handwritten corrections such as "just to remind me". Hmm.

Well, true!
As long as what you hear makes sense to you.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, poetry is in the ear of the listener.

Fuck me, this is a good one! :)

not sure whether it's been mentioned before as I'm too idle/can't be arsed to read through the whole thread but on "I am disappeared" i thought he sang And on the worst days, when it feels like life weighs ten thousand tons,
She’s got her cowboy boots and KHAKIS on the bedstand, so she can always run
thought perhaps she was into her camouflage gear

and my other one is on Long live the queen.........So stop looking sad and depressed and sing with all your heart that the queen is dead.”

My mum admitted she thought frank said hotel not home town in Wessex boy and was very confused!
