Filled in the blanks to Time Machine, think this is right
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 trifle
Scared of going back you know that I'm forgetful

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

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

Drinking in Deadwood in the 1880s
Rock and roll and drive thru in the 1950s
Trying not to change things so the plot lines 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

To go back and to see
The way things really used to be
Not the way we remember them at all

Cause I can't recall
You tell it to me false

What if everything were to change completely
If you just saw a replay of the crucial scenes
From the passenger window of a time machine

In truth the real reason that I built this here machine
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"
Dripped off our tongues
Come on you must remember

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

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

Come on baby please remember
Please remember

I feel like a right idiot for not getting that it was "sat in my DeLorean" I was looking for something a historian would use called Stat or something. Sat makes so much more sense...I think I'm gonna cut off my ears now that they are completely useless :D
I'd rather be the one who loves than to be loved and never even know.

I heard stat too, and it actually made sense to me. I just figured it was stat as in statim, like right away or immediately.

Love is All by The Tallest Man on Earth.

I heard 'evil's in my pocket and your will is in my hand' as 'evil's in my pocket but your willy's in my hand'.

Its the second line in!

Not sure if these have been said and I was completely aware of the original lyrics to start with but sometimes here these:

From Long Live the Queen
'It's just now you'll have to dance for the tour bus."

From Redemption:
So if each of us are made up of Italian mistakes and successes.

'And it's OK thinking me and all my friends are just racist'. - Reasons Not To Be An Idiot.

Someone else has probably said this one somewhere along the lines but there are oh so many pages to look through!

It's definitely trace, though my friend used to also think it was chase, and that 'A thousand estuaries' was 'A thousand Histories'!

Totally used to think 'I'm not as awesome as this song makes out I'm angry, underweight and sketching out ' in reasons was 'I'm not as awesome as The Sun (yes, the paper) makes out, i'm angry on the way it's getting out' and i am also pretty sure i sing this version on the clip of me singing that's used on the 'England keep my bones' tour video trailer.. awkwarddd.

Just found out that it's not " An antique Cutlass for a sailors escape"... I guess a compass would be more useful, but slightly less piratey

Hahaha, I love the idea of The Sun randomly running an article saying "Frank Turner Is Fucking Awesome".
If you're oh so fucking different, who cares what you have to say?

Can't help hearing the following in Ladies of London Town

I've seen you trawling Camden at 4am,
Outside of the club night,
Deciding whose ass will hold a free for all

Quite funny when you keep on singing this particular song and even out loud when there are other people around only to realize that you have been singing the incorrect lyrics since then. Not says much about how the lyrics should have gone.

At work the other day one of our interns was in my office and I had Pandora on and I still believe came on and after the song was over he asked why he was is singing about Kanye (West) and rock and roll... apparently where the "So come ye, come ye" parts were on.. he thought he was saying "Kanye, Kanye...". It still makes me chuckle a bit.
