EXPERIMENTS COME
( EXPERIMENTS GO )
Copyright 2006 - MickTerry.com

When we were kids, my uncle wouldn't say too much about the war
or how it came about he'd lost his leg.
But, being kids, we were quite curious & wanted to know more
about this mystery he'd kept so vague.

With his prosthetic parts, he'd earned the name "The 16 Dollar Man".
His crazy, mad demeanor brought us fear.
It seems in 1943 or so, the Navy had a plan
to make a ship named Eldridge disappear.

    EXPERIMENTS COME, EXPERIMENTS GO,
    but this one never moved,
    except in ways they never did expect.
    EXPERIMENTS COME, EXPERIMENTS GO,
    but this one was no good
    and left a score of sailors in the decks.

Magnetic generators at both ends, with cables 'round the ship,
and tons of test devices stem to stern,
a greenish cloud-like mist engulfed the boat when they had thrown the switch.
They disappeared a while and then returned.

    CHORUS

        Way beyond degaussing and invisibility,
        Project Rainbow took its crew through a warp in time
        to a place where Albert Einstein's Unified Field Theory
        would be tested with the sailors' lives on the line.
        And something about some guy named Tesla.

Not ev'rybody came back with the ship & some were stuck in walls.
Disoriented, some had froze in time.
My Uncle Dave was sure a lucky one that he'd survived at all.
His will now says his metal leg is mine.

    CHORUS
