Orville and Wilbur
cold cut the anchor's from their ankle,
carving propellers from whale fins
in the back of a bicycle shop...
and thus begins the tale
of the thumb trigger cloud kill.

At last the Wright's reinvented the horse with wings,
another invention only fit for a mannequin.

Early time machine's
will have tended to leave you
left screaming
on a dinosaur's dish.

In da Vinci's "Bike Accident',
an outerspace whodunit?
monkeys play Magellan
as the next ex-Edison,
standing out in the crowd with a unicycle.

Physics of a unicycle...
twice the remarkable.

Hum diddle liddle liddle
Hum diddle la
Someone's splitting atoms in the flag, barbed wire
Up in the sky where the war planes fly
Dead in the clouds with the gods' cold lie

    General CommentIt's also in Son of a Gun. This is what I could make out after having listened to it countless times.

    Hum diddle diddle diddle hum diddle la
    someone's putting atoms in the flag for war,
    and up in the sky where the war planes fly,
    dead in the clouds hear the Gods cold lie.

    But there's one part where it changes the words to,

    Hum diddle diddle diddle hum diddle la
    someone's putting atoms in the flag car drive,
    and up in the sky where the delta planes fly,
    dead in the clouds hear the Gods cold lie.

    Don't quote me on it but that's what i've been hearing.

    General CommentAlright. Here's what I've got. I'm really confident in this as I think I can find a meaning in it, too.

    Hum diddle liddle liddle
    Hum diddle la
    Someone's splitting atoms in the flag, barbed wire
    Up in the sky where the war planes fly
    Dead in the clouds where the gods cold lie

    And I think the "someone's splitting atoms in the flag, barbed wire" line refers to the American flag. The 'split atoms' are the stars and the 'barbed wire' is the stripes.

    The only line I'm not sure on is the last one, as I don't really see what it means, but out of all the times I've heard the verse (Son of a Gun, The Teeth Behind Kisses and Physics of a Unicycle) it's what seems to match the most.
