Everytime I listen to Elevation I hear "a mole digging a hole"

Surely that's not correct.

that's right it's not correct.  It's actually "a mole digging in a hole"

"Since I've read it"

Unfortunately that cuts two ways - people do tend to beLIEve what they read, even when it's blatantly wrong. Can't win your argument? - Publish it and people will believe it. But, they don't actually listen, and even when they listen they don't really hear if you know what I mean. Fortunately, they may be putting all lyric guessers out of business if they keep up the trend they started with Invisible & Ordinary Love: accurate lyrics on U2.com & the album. No matter really, if God or the Devil (you choose which one) is in the details, what I see is fans missing the true details and increasingly getting lost in minutiae to create what? - fan hierarchy? over absurd minutiae? What more glaring example of not hearing is there?

And for Hawkmoon:  "Like thunder needs rain, like a preacher needs pain, like tongues of flame, like a sh** stain"

  VOLCANO

  Actual lyrics
  I'm so glad the past is all gone

  What I hear
  I'm so glad the pasta's all gone.

  I guess Bono's trying cut down on carbs.
  Why else would he be glad that there is no pasta left.

It's because that's a continuation of One:
"To drag the pasta into the light".  :P

EBTTRT

The heart is where it's always been
Hate is somewhere in between

Real:
Well my heart is where it's always been
My head is somewhere in between

I could do this all day!!

Stand up comedy:
"Stand up - this is comedy. DNA, lobotomy has left you shmuffukin..."
I tried hard to figure out that last part of the sentence, the closest I came to a real word was "pumpkin" LOL, which doesn't make it more meaningful. It sounded to me like Bono forgot the lyrics and just made up his own words (which we kinda know he has a habit of doing).
Checking up the  real lyrics though: "Stand up, this is comedy. The DNA lottery may have left you smart. But can you..."
Happened to be the old "trying to squeeze too many words into one stanza" ;)
