Scientology

"and my sweaty L. Ron Hubbard upper lip" Does the character in the song concede here that Scientology might be a correct theory?

Re: Scientology

it sounds like it's just more imagery like the rest of the verse.

Re: Scientology

No way ... sounds like the transformation of a stiff upper lip to me. But what? That alien ghosts 'occupied' the human population

Re: Scientology

Has anyone figured out who Uncle Martin might be referencing? Because that's crucial to the line. I guess what the difference would mean is, is he witnessing an actual alien like Sigourney Weaver or an alien within a human similar to like Radiohead's Bodysnatchers?

Re: Scientology

a quick google search will give you Uncle Martin from My Favorite Martian

and Body Snatchers was a movie before Radiohead made a song about it.
EDIT: actually it was even a book before the movie.

Re: Scientology

Can you interpret Uncle Quark in context? Because it could have just been like a typo in the recordings. I kind of hear it, but can't make sense of it

Uncle Martin, My favorite martian, it has to be familiar. Pissing your pants is slang for being very scared, so that could be something. But with someone familiar? I doubt it

" like some kind of blue-green Jackie Chan" - this line has got me, i give up

Re: Scientology

maybe the point of the song is about someone trying to turn a story into something it's not... maybe this Uncle Martin character is just a camodude from Area 51, but since he's tripping, he's convinced himself it's an alien abduction.

Re: Scientology

The best way to interpret this song is to recreate the song irl. Take some Deadhead blotter and DMT, and go out to Area 51 (without a pen). Chances are good, that your friend will float away.

Re: Scientology

With a face to the name, Quark, it becomes more plausible. Would swing against the Scientology theory however. I like Uncle Martin, plus they are the official lyrics, but i just can't make do with the "blue-green Jackie Chan" lyric and have L Ron's sweaty upper lip meaning he's right, or rather that the character thinks he's right. Interesting endeavor

Haha! I don't think there is a better way to interpret this song. What are your thoughts on other such songs. I would love to know your point of view on those as well. :)

Everyone will interpret a song as per his/her perception. And there are many such songs.
