When "hippos" drove the big cars

Lack of sleep maybe, but I am listening to the 'elevation-boston' cd, and at the end of 'kite' I could of swore he said "when hippos drove the big cars".

Anyone else hear that?

Hippos? Nope. But thanks to Calluna and notiti, I'm actually hearing this in my head during Beautiful Day:

Your love is krunk
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you


Honestly. I don't even know what krunk means, but I can't get it out of my head!

When I'm listening to MW I swear Bono says:
She's stupid
you're sliding down


lol I know I know it's slippy but I swear I always sing the fucking 'stupid' word lol And actually sounds cooler to me

BTW: "Hippos sounds way cooler than hip hop"

My name is MISS MACPHISTO...I'm tired and i want to go HOME...

Well tonight thank God it's them, instead of you...

ME TOO! For some reason, i was listening to it and there was this one time where i could have sworn this was the actual line LOL.

From ATYCLB, i used to mis-hear BD:
"sky falls"
my version was "sky folds"

or Elevation "the goal is elevation"
me: "but no, it's elevation"

ps: no hippos on my Kite. Must be your lack of sleep z edge.
