"When you talk about destruction, don't you know that you can count me out...in"

"Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream" / "Stay in bed, float upstream"

"I Am The Walrus" / "The walrus was Paul"

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

"Living is easy with eyes closed/Misunderstanding all you see" - would that be "all you see with your eyes closed", then?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Not john arguing with himself, but paul wrote Can't Buy Me Love. He also wrote She's Leaving Home. In SLH John said "Fun is the one thing money can't buy"

Well, Anna is a cover...

But there were some consistencies, like he was only sleeping in 1966, but he was still very tired in 1968...

Oh I was just kidding, but I understand what you mean in the differences between the songs.

"Can't get no worse."/"Everything, in every way, is getting better and better."

"You hurt me then. You're back again. No, no, no, Not A Second Time."/"Every night, we'll be happy, I know, now that I know you won't leave me no more."

"Imagine there's no heaven."/"Before you go to sleep, say a little prayer."

"Imagine no possessions."/"Money don't get everything, it's true. But what it don't get, I can't use. Now, give me money."

It's also been mentioned that he goes from "In my life, I love you more" to "I'd rather see you dead" in the same album.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Words "I wish I was dead" confuses me a lot in Lennon's song Cold Turkey. I'm confused... two-virginsa-hard-days-night-ringo-6

I'm thinking he meant that withdrawal was so painful, he couldn't stand it.

He has this theory where I'm the reincarnation of John Lennon. Also, another contradictory pair is "Please Please Me" and "I'm Happy Just to Dance With You" He contributed to both songs.

Hmm... I'm not seeing the contradiction. Could you post the contradictory lines?
